Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 646

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 650

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 652

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 653
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 653

Also, spread that creep, since it will be required for the optional objective.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 654
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 654

Try pushing forward, but be careful not to lose your infestors. They cost a lot of gas.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 655
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 655

Make a second hatchery and 2 evolution chambers.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 656

Also, remember to defend the virophages. The enemies will send out squads to destroy them.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 657
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 657

You can replant them if you lose them, but it has to be with an infestor. That's why you're not supposed to lose your infestors.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 658
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 658

My strategy on this mission was a lot of zerglings.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 659

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 660

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 661
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 661

The wild mutation abiliy will be extremely useful, since it gives bonus health to your zerglings. They will die really fast against the firebats and helbats.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 662
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 662

Also, make sure to target the siege tanks. They will be a menace.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 663
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 663

Destroy the terran base to the north. Also, make an expansion over there right after destroying it. I made the mistake of taking it a lot later than i should have.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 664
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 664

Make 2 additional hatcheries for more zergling reinforcements, since we will be losing them every second.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 665
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 665

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 667

Make a single queen just for the creep tumors. Also, i made the mistake of trying to go for mutalisks, but it was not worth it. Zerglings all the way.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 668
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 668

If the infested terran are not attacking, only push forward while your creep is spreading, if the infested are attacking however, push with them.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 669
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 669

Your zerglings will die out really fast, that is why you need to make many hatcheries.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 670

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 671
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 671

There are more virophage locations to the west, also the optinal objective is that way.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 672
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 672

The infested terran will not go that way, which is why you will have to go with kerrigan and your zerglings only.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 673
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 673

Destroying the base to the west should be pretty easy, since there aren't many forces there.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 674
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 674

There is a virophage far to the north.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 675
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 675

"Even with wild mutation they lose their health so fast.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 676
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 676

Thing is, thores and turrets counter your mutalisks too hard to use them.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 677
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 677

After you have all of the virophages, the expansion and completed the optinal objectives, it will be time to destroy the enemy base.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 678
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 678

Attack with Kerrigan and the zerglings and when they die, just make more zerglings. They are easy enough to produce in vast ammounts.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 679
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 679

After the infested terrans start attacking again, it's game over for the enemies.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 680
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 680

Produce zerglings constantly and attack constantly.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 681
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 681

The planetary fortress might be a bit hard to take care of, but after some time...

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 682
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 682

...you should be able to get it to red health. That's when it will start degenerating, making it an easy target.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 683
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 683
