Fury of the Swarm | StarCraft: Brood War (Zerg #6)

Kerrigan’s fortress, on the planet Tarsonis.

Two days later.


BRIEFING

Duran: My Queen, our scouts have just discovered a massive wave of Zerg in high orbit. Hundreds of Zerg have landed upon Tarsonis and are even now approaching our location! A number of our outposts are already under attack by the renegade Swarm!

Kerrigan: So, the UED is testing out their control of their pet Overmind. I had hoped to lay low after we razed Korhal, but it seems the UED is intent on forcing my hand.

Duran: Shall I rally your forces, my Queen?

Kerrigan: Yes. We’ve got to defend our remaining outposts and make sure that the renegades can’t gain a foothold in our immediate vicinity. Once we’ve secured our perimeter, we’ll begin to take the fight to their hive clusters.


OBJECTIVES

  • Destroy the renegade zerg.

RESOURCES

You start with no Drones. 4 Hydralisks, 6 Zerglings, and 8 Overlords. All 4 expansion bases are destroyed by renegade zerg, except the main base which is safe on an island. However, make sure to find the 4 Overlords located in the expansions. These can be saved by moving them away. Some are in high ground, though.

Buildings: Lair, Hatchery, Extractor, Spawning Pool, Spire, 2 Creep Colony.

800 Minerals – 300 Vespene Gas – 7/66 Supplies.

STRATEGY

The mission starts right away with a full blown renegade zerg attack on 4 expansion bases.

Please, ignore building anything in the expansions. All these 4 expansion bases will be destroyed regardless of what you do. Don’t worry. The main base is on an island with no bridges. These renegade zerg can only attack the island via Overlord transportation much later.

Select all units in the expansions and hide them in a far corner away from the expansion hatcheries. The renegade zerg won’t search for units. They only destroy buildings.

Technically, you could build a Drone in each expansion and hide them immediately in a far corner until the renegade zerg destroys all bases — but they leave 2 Lurkers in each expansion, so you can’t do anything with the Drones for a long while, so it is not cost effective to do this.

Build 2 Drones (from the Lair and the Hatchery) at main base.

Move your units around the island so that you get acquainted with the borders of your main base.

Command the Overlords in the south to move to the main base. There are mutalisks patrolling the south a couple minutes into the mission.

Select the Creep Colony. Mutate into a Sunken Colony.

Select the second Creep Colony. Mutate into a Sunken Colony.

Build 8 Drones.

Send 3 to harvest Vespene Gas.

Select the Spire. Upgrade Flyer Attacks.

Build 4 Drones.

Build 2 eggs of Scourge. The enemy zerg has Mutalisks and Guardians.

Build 2 Drones.

Select the Lair. Evolve Ventral Sacs to allow Overlords to transport ground units.

Send 2 Drones to harvest Vespene Gas (Now a total of 5 on this task).

Build 2 Mutalisks.

Build 3 Drones.

Build 2 Mutalisks

Send 2 Mutalisks to kill the Lurkers revealed by the Overlord (northern expansion base).

(3:30)

Duran: My Queen, we have located a small Terran facility towards the rear of the Renegades’ landing zone. There appears to be a number of UED scientists working within the compound, but we are unable to determine the purpose of their presence…

Kerrigan: I know what they’re up to. I suspected that the UED’s control of the Overmind was tenuous. Tarsonis is too remote for them to maintain direct control over the Swarms, so they’ve sent these “scientists” to coordinate their attack.

Duran: Cerebrate, focus your attacks against the Terran facility. All of the UED scientists must be killed. Only then will we be able to finish off these Renegade Zerg.
