The mine drone

The mine drone was an automated terran unit produced by the Nomad. It appeared in early builds of StarCraft II.

Game UnitEdit

The Nomad expended energy to create the drone which formed a stationary structure. The drone created four mines similar to spider mines, then cloaked itself and the mines. Each mine did 50 damage plus an extra 50 against armored units. The drone replaced detonated mines, a process which temporarily left it uncloaked.[1]

The mine drone was later replaced by regular spider mines.[2]
