What is up with Infestors?

I’ve encountered a new phenomenon: Zerglings and infestors in huge amounts. At first I was a little bit surprised by this new development, but the more I think about it, the less sense it makes.


What is this supposed to accomplice? Fungal growth is nasty and all, but it still need backup from something that is able to absorb some damage. And neither zerglings nor infestors can do that.

I’ve just encountered this matchup twice in a row, and the players using this was fairly high rank platinum players. I haven’t figured the brilliance of this out yet…


  1. I've seen infestors used heavily at high level tournaments, like Dallas, TSL3. Worked very well. Perhaps people are just copying while they try to understand it?

  2. Infestors work really well, im really surpised its not used more often. It does alot of damage to units caught in its area and prevents unit movement which terrans are really known for doing. You can use them on mutas to prevent them from running away or collossus to quickly get up there and snipe them without them moving out of range.

  3. Hi,
    I am in pune and i love this game, i am the fan of SC1 and me and my friend still playing it together ( multiplayer ) but i cant find any store in here or online shopping that sells SC2 in india, do you know where i can buy that ? i want 2 hard copy of SC2, one for me and one for my friend. By the way my email address is, i would very thankful if you help me on this.

  4. No, I don't know where you can buy Starcraft in a boxed set in India. Probably no where. That is not the same as not being able to get the game though.

    First of all, Starcraft 2 requires an internet connection and is local to a realm. I play on the EU realm and you have to figure out which realm offers the least latancy. Probably EU or SEA in you case.

    The easiest approach after that is to create an account on and simply buy the game online. You can buy the code directly from Blizzard and download the game from their site.

    Currently I think they offer the game for €60 online (which is a lot of money even here). I've bought a key through this site mentioned below with success at less than €60.

    Good luck.

  5. This strategy is actually one of the best zerg strategies out there. Nothing actually needs to take the damage because you can just sit there and fungal growth and neural parasite and the zerglings clean up. Watch destiny's stream on and you will see. It takes a ton of apm to pull off and you have to have very good micro with your liings and infestors otherwise they will die in like 2 seconds.
