The robotics bay is a protoss structure in StarCraft II.

Overview[]

The robotics bay serves as the primary research and development facility of the khalai's foremost phase-smiths.[1] This structure allows protoss forces to deploy more specialized robotics units such as the colossus, as retrofit weapons and technologies on the battlefield.[2]

The Tal'darim have robotics bays which utilize terrazine in their design. The Ihan-rii robotics bays are made from a semi-organic stone, which move with an uncharacteristic speed and flexibility.[1]

Development[]

The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.

The null circuit

The robotics support bay was renamed to the null circuit c. June 2008.[3] It went back to the robotics support bay as of June 2009.[4]

In July 2007, it was a requirement for the reaver and the observer.[5]

Co-op Missions[]

Artanis is able to research upgrades for observers and immortals at the robotics bay. Once Artanis reaches Level 9, reaver upgrades can be researched as well. Karax can upgrade his observers, immortals, and colossi at the robotics bay, unlocking additional upgrades for the latter two units at Level 9. Alarak researches upgrades for vanguards and wrathwalkers at the robotics bay, and unlocks new upgrades for them at Level 6. Fenix researches upgrades for observers, colossi, and disruptors at the robotics bay, and unlocks new upgrades for Taldarin at Level 5, disruptors at Level 9, and Warbringer at Level 12.

Zeratul has access to an xel'naga robotics facility named the constructs facility.
