NeosteelFrame SC2 Game1


Neosteel is an exceptionally durable material utilized by terrans.


Neosteel is used as part of the armor for battlecruisers,[1] CMC armor,[2] jumpsuits (thinly interwoven to provide protection),[3] bunkers,[4] thors,[5] goliaths, the interior of drop pods, certain starships,[6] Perdition turrets,[7] the hellion,[8] hellbat,[9] the C-10 rifle,[10] widow mines,[11] the fusulage of Ravens,[12] the warhound,[7] Crucio siege tank treads,[13] reinforcement bars and security doors.[14]

Neosteel requires catalytic elements to create. The richest source was New Folsom, but the much safer Sara system is used for the same purpose.[15]

In general terran language, to be "like neosteel" is to have great strength of will.[14]

During the reign of Emperor Valerian Mengsk, much research was done into improving neosteel construction processes. This research resulted in better liberators and thors, and was extensively used by the Dominion Special Forces. Later advancements in neosteel design came through research on xel'naga constructs recovered by the Dominion Special Forces.[16]
