RipFieldGenerator SC2 Game1

A rip-field generator

A rip field is an effect produced by xel'naga technology that quickly disintegrates matter at a molecular level. They can be detected by the gravitational distortions they create.[1] Fields mat warp time and space.[2]

Objects protected by plasma shields are unaffected by rip fields.[1]

Game EffectEdit

In StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, rip fields are encountered in the mission, "Maw of the Void". They are generated by rip-field generators. Units unprotected by shields constantly take damage while within a field.[1]

Rip fields continue to deal damage even when the "god mode" cheat is used.
