Roachlings are zerg units exclusive to the Heart of the Swarm campaign. They are produced from the corpse of an enemy when a corpser roach attacks it.[1] Roachlings are weak and have timed life, but are good for absorbing damage, drawing enemy fire, and scouting. Unlike their roach counterparts, roachlings have a melee attack.
