Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 481

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 482
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 482

So destroy as much as you can before the timer runs out.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 483
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 483

You will get reinforcements.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 484
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 484

It doesn't matter if you lose your units, just destroy as much as you can.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 485
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 485

You will get a second and final batch of reinforcements.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 486
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 486

After the timer runs out, you will be only left with a base, a queen and a few abberation.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 487
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 487

Start by droning up, as always.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 488
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 488

Also, get your upgrades on the way as soon as you can (melee and armor)

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 489
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 489

You could also get another hatchery, but from what i gathered, it is not really needed in this mission.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 490
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 490

Creep spread and drone until you feel like you have enough, and then start making as many abberation as you can.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 491
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 491

Use the queen to make as many creep turmors as she can before she dies.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 492
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 492

When you feel like you have enough, attack one of the enemy bases.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 493
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 493

You could lose a lot of your forces, but it should be fine, because this is going to be one of those missions where you lose 90% of your army every 3 minutes.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 494
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 494

You will also get nuked at random possitions a lot. I probably got around 15 nukes before the mission ended.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 495
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 495

After you're done with the base, make an expansion there.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 496
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 496

And make sure you build drones.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 497
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 497

The enemy will send a lot, and i do mean a lot of squads attacking you. Problem is, usually they will be strong enough to destroy your spine crawlers, if you made any.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 498
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 498

That is why creep will be so important this mission, make sure you spread it as much as you can.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 499
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 499

When you have enough forces, i recommend attacking the base to the south east, since it is closest to your main base.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 500
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 500

Like i said earlier, you might lose most of your army, but that should be no problem, just continue making abbeartions.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 501
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 501

Don't get too cocky though, after you destroy a base, just back out, because you are probably getting attacked.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 502
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 502

Like how i got attacked by around 10 vikings at that time...

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 503
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 503

Always attack something after you get attacked. Make sure to do the optional objective, since it will give you character levels.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 504
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 504

When you can, attack the north base and destroy it.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 505
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 505

When you do so...

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 506
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 506

...3 drones will be spawned for you.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 507
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 507

Make an expansion, and make sure you make more drones for that expansion.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 508
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 508

When you feel like you have a big enough army, attack the base in the middle, be careful though, since it is quite large.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 509
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 509

And keep a watch out for enemy attacks, always back out to defend your expansions.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 510
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 510

You can attack the middle base from this route as well.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 511
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 511

The middle base will be hardest to destroy.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 512
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 512

Don't forget the second science facility, like i almost did.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 513
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 513

After destroying the base in the middle, continue forward.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 514
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 514

Destroing the objective might prove tough, but you should be able to do it with enough abberations.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 515
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 515

After doing so, the mission will end.
