The lurker den was a zerg structure set to appear in StarCraft II. It was evolved from the hydralisk den[3] and was required for the development of lurkers.[1] It was canceled by the beta as the lurker had been removed.[6] However, it is still in the map editor.

It was referred to as a lurker den in February 2009; it was previously known as the deep warren.[4]

It used to have a "cool" morph animation, but it was lost during development.[7] The morph animation is still in the map editor.[8] The lurker den (and its morph from hydralisk den) are available if playing as zerg on the custom map "Vulture Nest".[9]


The lurker den enabled the transformation of hydralisks into lurkers.
