  1. Must a ghost see a location to which it plans to throw a bomb?

  2. If "yes", is it required to see that target location the WHOLE time or it is enough to see it for launch only?

  3. Can Ghost switch-on cloaking after launch is started before launch is completed?

  4. How much damage does a nuclear missile do? I see it depends on the distance from the exposure center to the target. But what is a dependency? A supply depot close to center will be destroyed, so the damage is at least 400 HP... but what is exact value?

Thanks a lot.

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. No (at least not till 2 seconds before the nuke lands)
  4. 300 (+200 vs. structures) damage in a large radius (though in the single player tosh does 700 + 500 vs structures

A nuke does 500 to buildings, 300 to units in the center. It decays as you go outward, as shown in this image from the Liquidpedia entry on Nukes.

Awesome image. I would accept it as an answer if it was full. But awesome! Thanks! :) – Budda Feb 8 '11 at 2:57

1) Yes.

2) It needs to see the location as long as the reticule is there. As soon as the moving part reaches the center, he can move.

3) No.

4) Not sure.
