The tech reactor is an add-on structure in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. It is available in campaign-mode only.

Game StructureEdit

The add-on is acquired in Hyperion's lab in story mode for 25 protoss research points and at the cost of the barracks being being able to drop trained infantry anywhere on the map. The tech reactor merges the functionality of the tech lab and reactor into one add-on.[1] This allows two of any unit to be built at once.

After being researched, all starting tech labs and reactors in subsequent missions are replaced by tech reactors. Tech labs and reactors may no longer be built.

The tech reactor can be preferable to the Orbital Strike upgrade, where as the Orbital Strike only affects the barracks, the tech reactor upgrade affects the barracks, factory, and starport, allowing them all access to tech lab-required units, while doubling their unit production rate. This is invaluable when mass-producing battlecruisers and thors.

The Terran Dominion has free access to tech reactors in its military bases. However, sometimes it uses conventional add-ons.

Notes

Terran unit-producing structures can create a tech reactor instead of a tech lab or reactor. The tech reactor combines the functions of a tech lab and reactor.[1]

Notes

All structures repair themselves to 50% life. All structure fires are automatically put out.

This all-in-one safety system automatically dispatches robotic drones to put out any fires and perform basic repairs on damaged structures. Although these drones are effective at doing basic repairs, they do not have a strong enough AI to perform the more delicate repairs needed to restore a structure past 50% structural integrity.[2]

Left 2 DieEdit

In Left 2 Die, Raynor's Raiders can buy tech reactors for 100 biomass points.[3]
