Tempest SC2 Game1

Tempests firing shuriken

The shuriken was a robotic drone produced by the otherwise unarmed tempest, in a similar manner to the interceptors produced by the otherwise unarmed carrier.

Game UnitEdit

The shuriken was produced and released in swarms. The player could order the tempest to auto-build them.[1]

Unlike interceptors, the shuriken made melee attacks.[2]


The shuriken was canceled, along with the tempest, shortly before BlizzCon 2007.[3]
