The New Terran
The New Protoss
The New Zerg is the second episode in the sixth season of StarCrafts. It is the one-hundred thirteenth episode overall.

Plot Edit

The episode starts with a drone morphing into lurker. Two opposing lurkers, purple and yellow, showing their burrowing ability, faster than before because of adaptive talons upgrade.

Next, swarm host uses bicycle to move normally, but going off the creep makes him extremely slower. However, for the overlord, its speed has been increased by 0.082. To demonstrate it, the overlord is seemingly faster, but on reality, he is still slower than really is without the pneumatized carapace upgrade, despite the hydralisk's impression by clapping for it.

Followed by the viper, the Parasitic Bomb's damage is demonstrated as viper regurgitates it towards three phoenixes. A giant fist is shown punching them suddenly, indicating the ability's double damage. Overseer shows his upgraded oversight mode ability, climbing up the pole to indicate his immobility, and using his telescope to locate a viking further. However, viking shoots at the overseer, bringing him down.

For the infestor's ability changes, Derpfestor throws a fungal growth towards the army of red marines and marauders. The fungal growth splats bigger than before, which makes a nearby hydralisk clap again, but a marauder shoots at it, killing it off. Finally, Derpfestor's infested terran is able to shoot air units. The infested swarm eggs (two on creep for faster hatch and one on bare ground for slower hatch) emerge three infested terrans, They shoot forward, and then upward to destroy a tempest directly above them.
