Marine SC2 Art5Render


The Marine is the most common Terran unit in the StarCraft series. Simple yet iconic, the Marine is found in virtually every Terran army. Serving under the various Terran commanders during all the major conflicts of the StarCraft world, the Marine is a mainstay.

The Marine is a skilled combatant augmented with a combat suit that increases strength and durability to vastly superhuman levels. They are armed with various weapons, and thus the Marine is covered to perform nearly any combat task laid in front of them. Most Marines wield an automatic C-14 Gauss Rifle, which is capable of launching various forms of ammunition at hypersonic speeds. Versatile and deadly, the Marine is bound to be on any battlefield a Terran is taking part in.
