Thread: So what the hell is this? - New HotS Terran Unit.

  1. #1

    Default So what the hell is this? - New HotS Terran Unit.



    This appeared on Blizzard's StarCraft II Facebook page.

    My guess? Looks like a Hellion that transforms into a Firebat.

    Kudos to Arkceangel for the Terran avatar and sig!

    Devoted repair vehicle/armoured-infantry? I don't quite see the flame-thrower everyone's talking about.

    Judging from the picture, it has a Marauder/Firebat suit, 4 wheels (2 on ankles, 2 on shoulders), two armor pads on its arms that seem like they are meant to merge into some kind of vehicular shape, and a Hellion weapon.

    What is this, the new Hellion/Firebat? It's clearly a transforming unit. What is its name? Hellcat? :P

    See that weapon on top? Ok, see that arm that comes out under and in front of the barrel? That's a pre-igniter.

    Meh, I've never liked transformers, so I'm going to hope that those wheel-like things on the ankles are just... ankle joints. IMO, Terran could always use more infantry, and a new fire infantry with potential for different mechanics from the Firebat sounds like a good place to start.

    Or, maybe it's a repair unit that can actually defend itself. ;D

    I noticed it more after I said that and didn't care enough to edit.

    I'ma lol if there's another pre-igniter hidden in the silhouette, because then it's not a pre-igniter. It's a claw. Or it has two pre-igniters. Which is stupid.

    Like you've all been saying, it is DEFINITELY a transforming unit but I think the he's holding two shields on each arm and the top nob is for repairing, so it is most likely an infantry unit that repairs other mechanical units and has high armor and hp itself with an ability to turn into a car and travel quickly. AKA its Batman playing mechanic, in space.

    They're combining the Hellion and the Reaper!
