Overview

Marauder profile

Realizing the need to defeat hardened Zerg carapaces, the Terran Dominion modified a Firebat combat suit to sport two large grenade launchers on each arm. Unlike most Terran infantry, many Marauders have never been to jail or have only been accused of light crimes.

Marauders are very effective against armored units like the Stalker and Roach. With Concussive Shells, Marauders can also defeat melee units like Zealots and Zerglings by endlessly kiting them. With Medivac support, they are incredibly hard to kill. Marauders are frequently loaded into Medivacs for counter drops on the enemy base. The Marauder is part of the dreaded Marine Marauder Medivac combination.

In campaign, Marauders are not nearly as effective as their multiplayer counterparts due to their lack of Stimpacks.
