Hunter Killers appear during the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty campaign, functioning as Sarah Kerrigan's elite guard.[1][2] They are slightly larger than normal hydralisks and have improved statistics. Other than that, the two are indistinguishable.

Hunter Killers can be mind controlled by hive mind emulators.

In Co-op Missions, Zagara can summon Hunter Killers.[3]

Unlike in the original game, Hunter Killers do not receive a custom portrait.

AbilitiesEdit

Many zerg ground units may burrow, become invisible and may be revealed primarily by detectors, and may not move or attack.

Exceptions include:

Some units can unburrow via autocast, causing them to emerge and attack when an enemy moves into range.

The ability is not smartcast.
