The Typhon Peaks were a landform of Typhon XI.[1] They were destroyed with the rest of the planet when its sun went supernova.[2]

Game MapEdit

The peaks serve as a 4 player map in StarCraft II. Rocks by the sides of the map are positioned similarly to Scrap Station to reduce rush distance in vertical start locations. The center has two xel'naga towers and provides the main attack path like in Shakuras Plateau, and the second expansion is similar to the setup of Xel'Naga Caverns. Players will be able to utilize some of their existing strategies that have been used on other maps, and potentially combine them to fit the unique play style of this new map.[3]

It was removed from the ladder in season 4.[4]
