StarCraft® II

Not So Brutalisk?

I've run through the mission twice. The second time I paid attention more and used the plasma gun as fast as possible. Further, i made sure the lisk was attacking raynor, who of course did not die. I didnt get the acheivement.

Now, I DID notice, that when I entered the room I lost a marine to one of the firebats. But I am pretty sure I didnt loose anything during the brutalisk fight.

Is it bugged? Known issue? Or did I just miss something?

Pierce the shroud.

OP, did you get disconnected from Bnet? If not, try doing the level again, save before releasing the brut.

It can pretty much one shot a marine, so that may have been it.


I did it by clearing the room with my full force (I didn't lose anyone though) and then put my medics in a corner of the room using hold position. I put the rest of my marines outside of the room then used Raynor to kite him around the two pillars (being healed as he runs by the medics) - turning now and again to use plasma gun to bring his health down.

the brut might some how killed a marine from the cleave attack, i somehow let raynor solo tank the brut and have 1 medic healing him the whole fight, all my troop were like miles away, so i just spam my grenade and plasma attack till he is dead :)

Use ARES. Makes everything much easier. It's also a Feat of Strength if ARES gets the killing blow.

The security bot that you release about 40% thru the mission.

Use your main force to clear the way to the brutalisk room (using grenades and sniper shots on the tanks/larger groups), then start up the ARES and hide your force where you get reinforcements. Have Raynor free the brutalisk, and run to the ARES. ARES takes out the brutalisk, you get the Monster Mash FoS and your achievement.

I did it a little differntly then the others.

leave the Dominion people in the room and keep your group in the top of the room where you release him from.

Release him .. he attacks the dominion people. You can get 2 - 3 shots from Raynor off on him before he turns to you. Then you can have Raynor tank and the others assist. Heck if you are quick enough at micro you can have a maurader tank him for a hit or two.

I only sent raynor in there when i release him... All I did was micro and use the special attacks. Piece of cake.

Good to know. Mine always seems to die though (time). What do you do about that?

Clear everything up to the brut before you activate the ARES. Then have the ARES initiate the attack on the Brut. Have Raynor and your marines attack the Brut, but make sure the ARES is the one that finishes off the Brut.

If you send all of your forces except raynor and maybe 1 medic outside of the room then there is no way for the brutalisk to find them before you kill it. Save right before releasing him just to be safe.

It bugged out for me. I had to redo it (i saved right before him ;)).

Took 3 or 4 tries to get it because it was buggy and not registering the kill.

where do you get this mission anyway?
Ive beaten the campaign but its not in the mission replay?

I use the bot for the achievement.

Gunned and granaded everything else in the room before getting to the lisk. Then went back for the bot after clearing the lisk room. The bot will take all the beating, so use stim and the gun and granades on the thing until it dies.

If you're good with micro it's possible to kite the Brutalisk with Raynor.
