The scourge nest is a type of zerg structure that produces or allows the production of scourges.

OverviewEdit

When Kerrigan returned to Char she activated these scourge nests by spawning creep tumors next to them. They could launch scourges at air targets at a very long range. They were then used to destroy Warfield's Gorgon battlecruisers in the Bone Trench.[1]

Game StructureEdit

Heart of the SwarmEdit

The scourge nest is present in the "Fire in the Sky" mission of Heart of the Swarm. They are activated by the player's forcing reaching them, and are otherwise not controllable.

Co-Op MissionsEdit

The scourge nest is exclusive to Zagara in Co-op Missions. It replaces the spire in her tech tree, allowing her to build scourge and corrupters. Upgrades for the scourge are unlocked when Zagara reaches Level 4.
