The xel'naga passageway is a protoss gateway enhanced with xel'naga technology. In an alternate timeline where Zeratul survived the opening stages of the End War, the dark prelate utilized these structures against Amon's Forces to bring his forces to the field.[1]

Game Structure[]

The xel'naga passageway is a production structure for Zeratul in Co-op Missions. It is able to produce ambushers, shieldguards and void templars. Unlike the base gateway, the xel'naga passageway lacks the ability to transform into a warp gate.
