StarCraft® II

Originally designed by the Khalai caste to lay the foundation for Protoss settlements, Probes are robotic drones that service the Nexus and gather the numerous resources needed to power Protoss technologies. Probes also manufacture and plant the micro-beacons that anchor the teleport matrices of structures. These beacons allow the Protoss to warp in prefabricated structures from their homeworld. Often Probes are used as rudimentary spies, sent ahead to survey the potential locations of enemy encampments.

General Strategy

  • Light unit used to construct buildings and gather resources. They can only attack ground targets.
  • Highly vulnerable to enemy attacks and will likely be high-priority targets, so protecting them is essential.
  • If you have no other options, groups of them can be used to repel an early rush.
  • Probes summon in buildings instead of constructing them, so a single probe can summon as many structures as you have the resources for.
  • Use the Nexus’s Chrono Boost ability to increase production early in the game or whenever you require more Probes.
