The rock pillar, also called collapsible rock tower[1] is a gameplay feature developed for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. Destroying a rock pillar can block off a choke point[3] by creating destructible rocks.[1]

Legacy of the Void[]

Rock pillars, called rock towers, appear in "Unsealing the Past". Destroying them will not create destructible rocks, but rather seal Amon's zerg forces within caves.[4]
