Tips and Tricks Edit

  • Inside the Terran Base: Don't place it on the High Ground next to the entrance of your Base, since it can easily be sniped by Hydralisk attacks. Rather place it somewhere around your Command Center
  • Outside: Due to the aura, it is best to place it at the edge of your base where most of the Zergs units are coming. This reduces Energy consumption (due to more efficient kills) and increased the strength of the frontline where it is placed at.
  • If placed far forward enough, the range buff enables Marines to out-range the spine. Meaning a safe, early spine kill and the ability to push the spawners behind it.
