Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm's new units


New Zerg Unit: Viper

The Viper feels like a floating Infestor in tone, but with less of a direct-damage focus. It's been seemingly built to mess with Terran armies: the 'blinding cloud' ability reduces biological unit range to 1, and the 'abduct' spell lets it pull enemy units out of position. Both Marine/Marauder drop-heavy and Siege Tank focused Terrans find a counter in the Viper, even if its giant licky tongue can't directly hurt anything on the battlefield.
