OverviewEdit

The mutalisk's attack strikes three targets in succession, dealing 9 damage to the first, 3 to the second, and 1 to the last. Unlike many other air units, the mutalisk is small, making it more resistant to explosive damage, a common damage type found on anti-air units like dragoons and goliath. The mutalisk deals normal damage and is only affected by the armor of the target. Compared to the Wraith and scout, the mutalisk's attack is weaker and more easily affected by armor.

Large groups of mutalisks tend to clump together making them ideal targets for attacks or abilities dealing area of effect or splash damage. Mutalisks are fast, but accelerate slowly making it harder to escape; this improves the effectiveness of the high templar's Psionic Storm against mutalisks.

Pre-ReleaseEdit

Originally the mutalisk was armed with an "acid spray" attack rather than glaive wurms. References to the acid spray may be found in the StarCraft manual. It can also be seen in The Death of the Overmind, the final cinematic for StarCraft Episode III where mutalisks attack the Gantrithor.[1]

ImagesEdit

NotesEdit

The unit portrait of the mutalisk is not the face of the mutalisk, but rather the tail, which fires the glaive wurm.
