Infested terran barracks

Infested terran buildings in StarCraft II are structures commandeered by the zerg. They serve as spawning grounds for infested terrans.

Such buildings are: bio-domes, huts and infested supply depots, barracks, bars, armories, missile turrets, bunkers, engineering bays, factories, command centers, refineries and starports.[1]
In the Co-op Missions the infested tech lab and armory were introduced. The infested colonist compound is a new structure.

An infested base

Infested terran buildings do not regenerate, nor do they burn when brought to low health. They do not require creep. When destroyed, most produce a small number of broodlings.[1]

In Nova Covert Ops, the zerg possess functioning infested missile turrets and infested bunkers.[2]

In Co-op Missions, Stukov infested terran buildings do not burn when damaged but do regenerate. They do not require creep to survive (many can walk off of the creep) but can only be built or rooted on the creep.
Stukov can also, through a calldown, trigger a temporary infestation, that cause a building to spawn broodlings, regenerate hp if it is an allied building, and get disabled if it is an enemy building.


The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.

During the development of StarCraft II, infestors could temporarily take over terran structures to produce infested marines.[3]

The ability first surfaced in March 2008, spawning infested marines.[4]
In builds from May 2008 it could spawn eight broodlings.[5]
By the next month, the buildings were spawning infested marines again.[3]

By October 2008, the infestor had lost this ability.[6][7]
