Faction Overview

Funky Zerg.
Feeble. Persistent. Devious.

A mix of infested Terran creatures and Zerg evolutions. Brood Mothers construct their buildings and serve as central mobile production facilities that can be upgraded to unlock higher-tier units.

Infested Colonies produce a range of Infested Terran units, from the cheap massable Infested Marines up to the mighty Aberration or the powerful Angel.

Protip: Don't attack head-on, abuse Nydus Worms.

The Brood Hive can spawn Banelings with timed life.

Recommended Strategies

Early Game

Getting gas before your Roach Warren allows you to build Infested Commanders, with a long range attack that can fend off early harass. This can allow Infested players to focus on early macro mechanics and propel them to an advantage in the mid-game where they are strongest.
