The reaver

The reaver is a protoss mobile artillery unit.

OverviewEdit

Reaver SC1 Art2

A reaver

The reaver evolved from a civilian mobile manufacturing unit that was militarized[1] to become a mobile artillery piece, ensuring that fewer lives would be lost when assaulting enemy bases.[2] Somewhat fittingly, reavers are renowned for leveling entire colonies in moments.[3]

The reaver itself does not mount any weaponry, but instead houses a micro-manufacturing plant similar to the carrier, producing tiny robotic drones known as scarabs.[3]

Reavers fell into disuse after the end of the Brood War, but began to come back into service during the End War when Phase-smith Karax developed automated scarab production based on the Spear of Adun's star forge. [4] Reavers were also deployed against the Daelaam by Amon in defense of the psionic matrix, but were able to be reclaimed by Karax.[5] They were deployed by the corrupted Golden Armada against the Daelaam defending the Xel'Naga Keystone, but failed in their objective.[6]

ScarabsEdit

Scarab SC2 DevGame1

A scarab

Scarabs are small, highly explosive drones constructed and launched by reavers.[2] They are launched at enemy targets and installations in groups,[3] able to level enemy structures in moments.[2] Unlike interceptors however, scarabs do not return to the reaver. Instead, they explode on impact, generating devastating electromagnetic fields that cause heavy damage to their targets.[3]
