Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 788
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 788

There are 3 strategies i can think of. First one, the one i use, is mass ultralisks. It is easy, and doesn't require micro. Second one is mass broodlord, but you need the mutation for that. Just as easy, if not a bit easier. Third one is mass zerglings, but you need to be playing on lower difficulty for that.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 789
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 789

Be careful with zerglings and helbats...

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 790
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 790

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 791
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 791

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 792

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 793
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 793

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 794
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 794

If you get attacked by any army with helbats, get your zerglings back and use whatever else you have to destroy the helbats and then the zerglings will be okay to join in.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 795
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 795

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 803

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 806

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 807
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 807

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 808
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 808

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 809
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 809

If you went for it too late, you will probably have your base attacked by the terran. Go and destroy them.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 810
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 810

Two battlecruisers should attack you. It might be a bit hard fending them off with kerrigan only, but if you kite them and use your abilities it should be easy enough.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 811
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 811

After the virophage is done...

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 812
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 812

...it will be time to destroy the last terran base.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 813
Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 813

Should be easy if you have ~15 ultralisks and your ultimate ability.

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Walkthrough - Starcraft 2-Heart-of-the-Swarm 814
