A dragoon's phase disruptor

Phase disruptors are weapons of protoss design. They launch bolts of anti-particles through a psychically charged field. They were adapted to become a terran weapon.


Protoss VariantEdit

Phase disruptors were employed by dragoons and photon cannons. These weapons fired antimatter bolts sheathed in a psychically charged field. Photon cannons use similar weaponry. During the Great War, larger phase disruptor cannons were outfitted onto the arbiter,[1] but these were changed to warpspace cannons by the advent of the End War.[2]

The dual phase disruptors used by immortals are an upgraded version of the weapon used by dragoons, firing antimatter bolts sheathed in pure energy. These blasts can easily punch large holes in heavy plating, but their limited field of fire prevents immortals from engaging aerial targets.[3]

Terran VariantEdit

Nova Terra setting up a terran phase disruptor

After the End War, a terran design to the phase disruptor was developed. It was a rifle with a tripod setup, and could disintegrate some of the toughest materials known to terrans. The principle functioned the same as the protoss variant.

Agent Nova Terra participated in the operation to recover a prototype for the Terran Dominion. This design was later used to break into the Keep, allowing Nova to break through the vault containing sensitive Terran Dominion documents.[4]


Phase disruptors are misspelled as "phase-disrupters" in the book StarCraft: Shadow of the Xel'Naga.[5]
