Hammer Securities (H-Sec) is a private security firm based in the Kel-Morian Combine.

History[edit | edit source]

Hammer Securities provided corporate security, and was often at odds with the Terran Dominion. During the Second Great War, they offered their services to Raynor's Raiders after the rebels stole a Keystone fragment from the Tal'darim on Monlyth for the Moebius Foundation.[1] Members were also part of the Moebius Security forces on Tyrador VIII when Sarah Kerrigan invaded the planet in an attempt to learn the locations of the remaining artifact fragments.[2] There were also members in Mira's Marauders,[3] Tosh's Goons,[4] and the Umojan Protectorate.[5] They took part in the expedition into the Void.[6][7]

A number of Hammer Securities were present in a Kel-Morian colony that fell to infestation by Amon's Forces during the End War, and were infested by Amon's Brood. Allied commanders sent to evacuate the colony were forced to fight the infested Hammer Securities.[8]

Attack upgrades improve attack cooldown of affected units by 5% per level.[9]

These self-replicating ultra capacitors reduce the reload time of weapons and systems. Now each of the weapon upgrades at the armory and engineering bay increases attack speed by 5% in addition to increasing damage.

Vanadium Plating

Armor upgrades increase health of affected units by 5% per level.[9]

We have created a new lightweight alloy called vanadium. Vanadium diffuses weapon impacts much more efficiently than traditional armor plating, and it better preserves the life of our units. Now each of the armor upgrades in the armory and engineering bay increases unit life by 5% in addition to increasing armor.

The marauder's attack slows non-massive ground units in target area.

Concussive Shells actually form a gravitational warp when they detonate. This warp not only damages the target, but it also slows the movement speed of all nearby units to a crawl for a short period of time.

Concussive Shells make marauders a great support unit against melee units, in addition to their traditional role of destroying armored targets.[10]

Kinetic Foam

Marauders gain +25 hp.

Marauder armor can survive crushing impacts, but the same cannot always be said for the soldier inside. To help solve the problem, Wolfe Industries offers a Kinetic Foam undersuit that protects the soldier from the violent impacts the armor takes.

Surely the lives of your marauders are worth the small investment required to outfit them with kinetic foam.[10]

Development[edit | edit source]

Three development renders

The elite marauders' arms, backpack, head, crotch, and kneepads were all redone which left very little of the original marauder model left. Its claws are a reference to the cybernetic arm of Rory Swann.[11]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "Three Hammer Securities" is mentioned in Heroes of the Storm flavor text for a marauder Muradin skin. This is a reference to both H-Sec, and the three dwarf clans of Warcraft.
