SeekerMissile SC2 Game1

A seeker missile

The seeker missile is a thermobaric, laser-guided projectile launched by the raven. It is constructed onboard through hundreds of thousands of AI-operated nanomachines.[1] Once launched, the missile will track its target relentlessly before detonating in an explosion over a wide area.[2]

During the Defenders of Man Insurgency, a more advanced Hunter-seeker missile was developed for ravens.[3]

Game EffectEdit

StarCraft IIEdit

HuntSeekMiss SC2 UseAble1
Seeker Missile

Missile comes out and stays immobile in front of the Raven for 4 seconds while charging up, then rapidly moves (it’s not dodgeable at this point) and explodes at the target, causing 100 damage to target plus splash damage. Targeted unit lights up red when targeted. If the unit moves 13 range out of where the Seeker Missile is, the missile fizzles.

The missile cannot target buildings.

Wings of LibertyEdit

In Wings of Liberty, seeker missiles were a projectile with normal speed. When it got within a range of 2 of a target, it would speed toward it becoming impossible to avoid. However, if the target was able to keep out of that range, the seeker missile would break down harmlessly.[4]

Legacy of the VoidEdit

In early versions of Legacy of the Void, seeker missiles gained the explosive shrapnel shells upgrade. This was removed in patch 3.8.
