The zealot is the basic protoss infantry unit.

OverviewEdit

Game UnitEdit

Zealots are strong against units such as immortals, zerglings, and hydralisks, and weak against hellions, roaches, and banelings. Though they do a total of sixteen damage, their attack is treated as two attacks doing eight damage each. This allows zealots to do full damage against enemy immortals. Their charge ability is autocast by default, but this can be turned off.

Zealots are not as effective in late-game scenarios as of the introduction of the adept.[3]

AbilitiesEdit

Charge SC2 Icon1 Charge
  • Allows the zealot to quickly approach enemy units within a certain range, giving a brief speed bonus of 3.3[2] (2.953 in Legacy of the Void).[4] This ability also increases a zealot's speed by 0.5.[1]
  • Activation of the Charge ability requires a path to the target that is at most a specific length. This means that a zealot cannot bypass obstructions like cliffs to reach their target.[5]
  • Charge always allows zealots to hit a fleeing enemy at least once since patch 1.3.

DevelopmentEdit

Zealot SC2 DevGame2

Early zealots with psi blades matching their team color

The zealots in StarCraft II received a cosmetic overhaul from their predecessors, but their animations remained the same. Fans reacted negatively to psi-blades being color-correspondant in accordance with team color, but a compromise was never reached.[7]

Glenn Rane pitched a concept where the zealot's psi-blade count would be increased to 4. However, this didn't make it through to the final game.[7]
