Vulture

Terran Vulture

Description Edit

Vultures are very fast anti-ground skirmish units which are very efficient against Light units. When upgraded with Ion Thrusters, Vultures are the fastest-moving ground units in the game. They can also be upgraded to lay Spider Mines, which burrow into the ground and wait for ground units to come into range before detonating. Certain ground units, those with the Hover attribute, do not trigger spider mines. This notably includes workers and other Vultures.== Unit Information ==

Deploys a Spider Mine at a target location. Once deployed, the Spider Mine will burrow into the ground and become hidden. When enemy ground units pass nearby, the Spider Mine will unburrow, chase down the unit, and detonate in melee range for 125 Explosive Damage). Spider Mines will not activate when hovering units enter their activation radius — which notably includes workers and other Vultures — and will not deal damage if they are destroyed mid-launch.

Requires at least 1 Spider Mine remaining on the Vulture (3 max).

The following hovering ground units do not trigger spider mines:
