Compared to regular queens, they move more quickly when off the creep (although being on creep still gives them a movement advantage). They do not possess the Spawn Larvae ability. The swarm queen also has the Rapid Transfusion ability instead of Transfusion, which heals a small amount of HP over time, but can be set to autocast.
In combat, swarm queens are somewhat more vulnerable than regular queens since they count as armored units, causing them to take bonus damage from units such as marauders and immortals. Their ground attack deals slight bonus damage against armored units, but they will tend to be ineffective in combat on their own against ground units, and should instead accompany other units such as roaches.
The queen forces a creep tumor out of her bowels.
Alternatively, each creep tumor may create a single additional creep tumor, using the same build time but no energy cost. This changes the tumor's appearance.
Creep tumors can only be created upon the creep, and within a range.
