StarCraft® II

The Thor project has been shrouded in mystery since its inception. Agents of the Umojan Protectorate were the first to investigate the Dominion’s new terror weapon. Images from this investigation showed a huge bipedal war machine armed with a dorsal artillery battery that wouldn’t be out of place on a battleship. Most disturbing of all was the discovery that this monster could be built rapidly from the ground up by a standard Factory.

Driver’s Handbook

  • Massive armored unit that can attack both air and ground targets.
  • Its main cannons deal heavy damage to all land-based units and structures, while its missile launchers keep enemy air forces at bay, especially Mutalisks.
  • Very vulnerable without support.
  • Slow-moving and costly to produce. Combine with SCVs for field repairs, and Medivacs to ferry them quickly across the battlefield.
  • The thor’s initial anti-air weapon is strong against swarms of light units. Switch into High-Impact Payload mode when going up against small numbers of armored units.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Tanks in Siege Mode with infantry support are a great way to eliminate Thors and their escort.
  • Cloaked Banshees allow you to attack on your terms; try to catch the enemy on the move and beware of Scanner Sweeps.
  • Assemble a large force of Marauders and focus fire. Works best if you research Stimpacks and build a few Medivacs.
Zerg VS
  • For the most part, large groups of smaller units work better against Thors. Try to attack from different directions simultaneously and don’t forget to focus fire.
  • Use Zerglings to support your Roaches or Hydralisks. Be sure to research Metabolic Boost, Tunneling Claws, and Grooved Spines.
  • Infestors can take over a Thor using neural parasite, turning the tide of battle in your favor.
Protoss VS
  • Immortals excel against Thors due to their Hardened Shields and high damage against armored targets.
  • Employ a large force of Zealots and Dark Templars to surround them. Be sure to have the Charge upgrade for your Zealots and to designate a Thor as your target. If you use attack move, your units will charge the escorts.
  • Void rays work well against Thors.
