The reaper throws a demolition charge on the ground; two seconds later, it detonates, damaging friendly and hostile ground units and buildings in the vicinity. A red timer bar shows how long until it detonates.
The mines deal 30 damage + 30 against armored units and buildings. Mine explosions do not detonate other mines and do not deal damage to burrowed units unless the player can detect them.
The mines are very small but visible. They can be hidden by units moving past them.
↑ 9.09.19.2In the current build you cannot destroy D-8 Charges. By that I mean that you can select them, but they are indestructible (they don't have HP like other units do, just like units caught by Arbiter's Stasis Field in SC:BW for example). If you are playing against Reapers though, you can still dodge the charges, as it takes them around 2 seconds to blow up. Kapeselus. 2010-01-29. Reaper Charges.
