"And I added missile launchers to my mecha hydralisks!"

- Egon Stetmann on his creations(src)

A mecha hydralisk

The mecha hydralisk is a Mecha Swarm replication of the hydralisk created by Egon Stetmann to guard his sacred home of Bel'Shir. They were controlled via technopathy.[1]

This article or section contains information derived from Co-op Missions, and should not be considered part of the official StarCraft storyline.

These constructs served Stetmann during the End War against Amon. These hydralisks can be equipped with Erudition missiles, and augmented to increase their movement speed.[2]

Game Unit[]

The mecha hydralisk is the ranged attacker for Egon Stetmann in Co-op Missions. They serve as Stetmann's primary anti-air, especially with the Eruditon Missile upgrade, which can deal heavy damage to air units. They can double the damage of their anti-air attacks using the Juiced Up ability. However, this requires energy to use.

Mecha hydralisks can be "recycled" when they die, which will respawn additional mecha hydralisks.[2]
