The following article contains information about a StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm unit or structure that was canceled.

Gorgeling SC2 Game1

A gorgeling

Gorgelings are a strain of baneling. Their subatomic acid dissolves enemies into their component matter. The zerg player immediately gains back a quarter of the minerals and gas spent on the killed unit.[1]

Game UnitEdit

Gorgelings were to appear in Heart of the Swarm as an alternative to the splitterling.[1] They were effectively replaced by the hunter, which maintains their aesthetic, but functions differently.[2]

Evolve Baneling[1]

Banelings can evolve into either gorgelings or splitterlings; once the choice is made, it cannot be reversed.[1]
