The following article contains information about a StarCraft II unit or structure that was canceled.
In addition to the abilities of its predecessor, the Huge Queen has new abilities.
Some units can unburrow via autocast, causing them to emerge and attack when an enemy moves into range.
The ability is not smartcast.
The queen used to spawn numerous types of structures upon the creep. Creep does not belong to any one player, which gave the queen the ability to spawn structures upon "enemy" creep in enemy bases. This ability has since been lost.
The queen had base defense duties, including laying eggs that hatched into suicide attackers.
- Toxic Creep
The huge queen has been referred to as a "hive matriarch"; this is a misnomer.
