StarCraft® II

Before the loss of Aiur, crippled Protoss warriors could volunteer to continue their service by transplanting their shattered remains into Dragoon exoskeletons. Tragically, the technology to continue this practice was lost in the rubble of their fallen homeworld. The remaining Dragoons, now known as Immortals, have been refitted with Twin Phase Disruptors and hardened energy shields. These heavily armed and shielded fighters give critical support by eliminating enemy artillery and ranged attackers, although they are vulnerable to rapid assaults from lesser foes. These ancient warriors are a dying breed willing to sacrifice everything for their people. Soon none will remain.

DATA MATRIX

Immortals are equipped with dual Phase Disrupter cannons, upgraded versions of the original Dragoon weapon systems, which fire powerful antimatter bolts sheathed in pure energy. These blasts can easily punch large holes in heavy plating, but their limited field of fire prevents Immortals from engaging aerial targets.
The use of energy for defensive purposes is a standard Protoss practice. By intertwining spectrums and wavelengths of varying intensity, they have created an incredibly dense field that mitigates powerful impacts—like siege tank cannon fire, or the blades of an Ultralisk—through energy dissipation. When the remaining Dragoons were turned into Immortals, the Protoss decided to outfit them with these Hardened Shields in an attempt to further preserve their most ancient and venerable warriors.
Immortal pilots live in a sterile nutrient solution saturated with microscopic machines, which helps preserve their mangled bodies. The machines repair aging tissue, destroy any foreign matter that might penetrate the cockpit—usually due to hull breaches—and regulate the pilot’s heart rate, brain activity, and biological functions.

General Strategy

  • Armored mechanical unit that can attack ground targets.
  • Deals large amounts of damage to enemy armored units, like Colossi, Ultralisks, and Thors.
  • Its Hardened Shields significantly reduce ’high’ damage attacks, making them especially useful against hard hitting units.
  • Vulnerable to large numbers of smaller units with fast attack speeds.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Have a Ghost fire an EMP round at them to weaken their shields.
  • Construct Banshees – Immortals have no anti-air capability.
  • Use Marines and Marauders with Stimpacks and Medivac support.
Zerg VS
  • Use an Infestor's Neural Parasite to control Immortals.
  • Build Mutalisks to pick them off.
  • Attack with large numbers of Zerglings, preferably with Metabolic Boost.
Protoss VS
  • Zealots with the Charge upgrade are good against Immortals.
  • Build a few Void Rays and focus-fire them.
  • Deploy Phoenix fighters and use their Graviton Beam ability to lift Immortals into the air.
