StarCraft® II

The Raven is an all-around workhorse that combines the functions of a surveillance drone and a combat engineer. A common sight among the fringe-world colonies, these robust air-mobile vehicles are built to operate independently in harsh climates. Ravens excel in protection and reconnaissance due to their defensive Auto-Turrets and their advanced sensors, which can detect cloaked or burrowed enemies. The Terran Dominion initially designed the Raven to give low-level protection to its most isolated outposts, but recently the Raven has been used in escalating levels of conflict to replace the older and costlier Science Vessel.

Flight Manual

  • Support craft with detection capabilities. It can also deploy Auto-Turrets and Point Defense Drones.
  • Use it to reveal cloaked/burrowed units or hallucinations and to support your troops.
  • Vulnerable to enemy fire, so keep it protected and hot-keyed to a different control group.
  • Do a diversionary assault on the front of the enemy base while you use a few Ravens to deploy Auto-Turrets behind the enemy’s mineral line.
  • Launch Point Defense Drones to protect your units from enemy missiles.

Tech Lab Upgrades

  • Corvid Reactor: Increases the starting energy of Ravens by 25.
  • Durable Materials: Extends the timed duration of Raven Auto Turrets and Point Defense Drones.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Place Missile Turrets behind your mineral line and send in Marines or a couple Thors.
  • Use Ghosts to drain the Ravens’ energy by means of EMP rounds.
Zerg VS
  • Use the Queen in tandem with a few well placed Spore Crawlers.
  • Don’t clump up your units and always attack from two sides at once.
  • Mutalisks are the best to take them down due to their superior speed.
  • If you have Hydralisks, be sure to have the Grooved Spines upgrade and always attack from two sides at once or spread out.
Protoss VS
  • Cover your probes with Photon Cannons.
  • Focus fire the Ravens using Stalkers.
  • Use the High Templar Feedback ability to drain their energy and deal damage. If the Raven’s energy reserves are full, they will die in one cast of this ability.
  • The Phoenix is fast and does extra damage against Ravens.
