Default Infested Terran obsolete?

With the new Zergling ability to commit suicide will the Zerg still continue to use infested Terran? The new suicide unit seems to move quicker (and can burrow?) and it would therefore be a waste to use infested Terran.

I'd assume the same. Maybe something different will come out of the Infested Command Centers.

Default Re: Infested Terran obsolete?

The Infested Terran was created as part of the Zerg search for Terran psychics. With Kerrigan infested there was little point of creating new ones except as convenient suicide bombers.

Unless Kerrigan has figured out a way for them to retain their intelligence (she was making a valiant effort in StarCraft: Hybrid, by the way) then there's not much point to them.

The ones in StarCraft: Ghost looked smarter. Maybe that type exists now (and isn't suicidal, or at least isn't as suicidal).

Infested marines? A faster version of marines but don't have as good accuracy and therefore loses damage?

Most likely.

I've always wondered why Infested Terrans couldn't use the guns that they had when they were infested, as in this shot here:

Perhaps this is a way to give the Zerg another ranged unit, however this would encroach upon the Hydralisk's niche. Who knows.

Probably because they lose most of their human motor functions and succumb to mindless rage.

The Infested Marine didn't seem to encroach on the Hydralisk too much in StarCraft: Ghost, although of course it's a very different game...

I don't know if the feature is on the computer but on the N64 there is an encyclopedia of the units and buildings. The reason they don't use guns is because it is a civilian infested.

That was a fan artwork and obviously the creator didn't know it was a civilian infested.

Like Dark Templar, we will probably see more and more infested Terran units, and not just the sappers we saw in StarCraft. The whole Zerg campaign might focus on Kerrigan's experiments with Zerg/Terran hybrids.

DUDE. Samwise drew that. He's head of the art department at Blizzard Entertainment. (Though his style is used in WarCraft projects, Metzen's is used more for StarCraft.)

Default Re: Infested Terran obsolete?

Nah, while the zerglings explosions may be smaller... My first thought (by myself) was whats the incentive to get infested terrans? Then it dawned on me, hell, lets just modify the infested terran. Lets make it so that the explosion of the infested terran is much larger. Maybe a little less then the size of a nuke, but more then it is now. Maybe would require research, but very effective none-the-less.

Hate my idea, like it, I don't care. I think it would be cool.

I'm sure a creature like the zerg, who specializes in infestation can find a new way of infesting terrans giving them other unique abilities

Please don't do "one-liners" that don't add to the conversation in your posts. Read the guidelines and rules all you new people!

I think that would be pretty cool to have the infested terran explosion larger. I never really messed with it because it didn't do much damage for the sacrifice of a unit. I also think that the infested terrans should be able to do more then just run into something and die. Maybe a melee attack or something?

Hopefully. But considering all the new stuff Blizz is putting in SC2, if the Infested Terrans come back, odds are they will do more then their SC1 versions.

I saw in a Ghost trailer that the infested terrans had big claws on their hands....
