There are few more disturbing sites in gaming than a Zerg base taking shape. Bright Hub guides you through the many twisted Starcraft 2 buildings and structures you'll require on your way to galactic domination.
The Zerg are the least technological of the three Starcraft 2 races, their armies being based on their bizarre and alien biology, and their building structures are no different. Many of them resemble the fetid imaginings of some terrible Lovecraftian nightmare. It's vital if you're going to play Zerg in Starcraft 2 multiplayer online that you develop a firm grasp of the various building units, as many of the Zerg units require specialized structures to Research their respective Upgrades, a fact that makes this race arguably the hardest to play as for players new to SC2. This guide will help you decide on a build order that suits your end-game needs with full information on each Zerg building unit, its stats, weapons, Abilities and Researches.
