Primal igniters are a primal zerg strain evolved from the primal roach. They were used by Dehaka during the End War against Amon.

Game UnitEdit

Primal igniters evolve from primal roaches in Co-op Missions, and are exclusive to Dehaka.[1]

Compared to the primal roaches, igniters have more HP, armor, and damage, but less range.[2]

AbilitiesEdit

RapidRegeneration
Roach Regeneration

Roaches regenerate at 5 hit points/second when burrowed.[3]

The rate of healing increases with the Tunneling Claws upgrade to a rate of 10 hit points per second.[3]

The regeneration doesn't stack with the medivac dropship's healing ability.[4]

ve

Many zerg ground units may burrow, become invisible and may be revealed primarily by detectors, and may not move or attack.

Exceptions includes:

Some units can unburrow via autocast, causing them to emerge and attack when an enemy moves into range.

The ability is not smartcast.
