In StarCraft II, spectres have the ability to launch nukes. The laser pointer has been replaced with a blast footprint visible to the launching player; however, the opponent sees only a red dot.

Building UpgradesEdit

All structures repair themselves to 50% life. All structure fires are automatically put out.

This all-in-one safety system automatically dispatches robotic drones to put out any fires and perform basic repairs on damaged structures. Although these drones are effective at doing basic repairs, they do not have a strong enough AI to perform the more delicate repairs needed to restore a structure past half life.[1]
