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. They use Leviathan Brood skin.[3]

Wings of Liberty[]

Abilities[]

Many zerg ground units may burrow, becoming invisible and revealed primarily by detectors, and may not move or attack while burrowed.

Exceptions include:

  • Roach, which may move while burrowed
  • Lurker, which may attack while burrowed
  • Infestor, which may move while burrowed
  • Baneling, which can detonate while burrowed.

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

The ability is not smartcast.
