StarCraft® II

The towering Colossus is a Protoss robot design dating back to the bloody conflicts of the Kalath Intercession. It strides across the battlefield on four tall, slender legs that allow it to cross steep elevations with ease. The Colossus’ heavily armored hull carries two powerful Thermal Lances, with one on each side of its body. The robot’s beam attack cuts a broad swath across its targets, making the Colossus an ideal anti-infantry weapon. Unlike most other Protoss robots, the Colossus was created purely for destruction. Manufacturing Colossi has been outlawed for centuries, but the increasingly desperate war against the Zerg has forced the Protoss to revive the line.

General Strategy

  • Massive armored unit that can attack ground targets.
  • Able to attack from very long range.
  • Devastating to groups of infantry.
  • Cliff Walk allows it to traverse elevations in terrain, like Reapers.
  • It is so massive that it can be engaged by anti-air structures and units.

Upgrades

  • Extended Thermal Lances: Passive increase to the Colossus’s attack range.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Launch Vikings; their long air-to-air range will make it easy to bring the Colossi down.
  • Engage with Banshees.
  • Build Thors and use their 250mm Strike Cannon ability.
Zerg VS
  • Spawn Corruptors or Mutalisks to engage the Colossi safely.
  • Use Infestors' Neural Parasite to control Colossi – after distracting them.
  • Spawn Ultralisks. Their high damage, armor, and health will allow them to survive the Colossi onslaught. Be sure to research Chitinous Plating.
Protoss VS
  • Use Void Rays to engage Colossi safely.
  • Focus-fire them with Immortals.
  • Build Carriers or Phoenix fighters.
