Liberator SC2 Dev1

The liberator

The liberator is a terran air unit introduced in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void.

OverviewEdit

Liberator SC2-LotV Portrait

A liberator pilot

The liberator was developed to ensure terran air superiority on the battlefield and was based off of the designs of the United Earth Directorate valkyrie.[1] An aerial counterpart to the siege tank, the liberator is a versatile,[2] medium-sized gunship, armed with twin missile launchers to strike at clusters of aerial threats and can also deploy an anti-ground cannon after transforming into a stationary air platform. This cannon is strong enough to pierce even the armor of the thor.[3]

The liberator attacks in two mutually exclusive modes, switching from one to another and back is not instant (roughly 1 second). In anti-air mode, the craft is mobile, and can only deliver anti-air splash attacks.

In anti-ground mode, a 5(9) diameter circle area on the ground is selected (not directly beneath the craft, but anywhere within 5(9) range); once an area is selected, the liberator is immobile and can only attack units within that circle, dealing very high single-target damage (enough to kill most ground targets in one to three shots). The circle can only be repositioned by switching back to anti-air mode, and then again to anti-ground.

Each liberator in the selection is ordered to target an area (liberation zone) independently. Ordering them back to anti-air mode affects all selected liberators. Liberators cannot attack buildings.

AbilitiesEdit

DefenderMode LotV Game1 Defender Mode

Deploys into Defender mode. In this mode, liberators have a long-ranged narrow attack that can inflict high single target damage. Liberators cannot move in this mode.

This attack only targets units, not buildings.[6]
