Terran Ghost

Description Edit

Ghosts are covert infantry units which can be produced from the Barracks as long as the Terran player controls a Covert Ops. They can Cloak to become invisible, if you ressearch Personal cloacking on the Covert Ops. They are able to mark a target location for a Tactical Nuke strike, which will be then launched from any Covert Ops with an available Nuke. They can also deploy Areal Defense Turrets, stationary flying units which can target ground targets with a powerful, but slow Concussive Damage weapon. They can also cast Kinetic Destabilizers, after ressearching them from a Covert Ops. This is a Single Target spell that applies a long duration debuff on a mechanical target (affects ground or air targets). While this debuff is active the unit will be damaged whenever it's moving.

Note that the Tactical Nuke Strike cast range is greater than the Ghost's sight range, even if the Ghost is moving.
