When I first encountered a Sentry force field, I expected to be able to attack and destroy it. However, they don't seem to be targetable. Is there anything I can do except wait for it to fade (assuming I can't just go around)?

    Followup question - does the forcefield go away if the Sentry that created it dies? Aug 26, 2010 at 16:43

    @Peter nope. Forcefields are unrelated to the Sentry that casts them.

I'm glad you asked.

Massive units can break force fields by walking over them!

Enjoy the power of the Ultralisk, the Colossus and the Thor!

edit: its worth noting that you could burrow under force field with Roaches or Infestors.

  • I might be mistaken but can Roaches that are burrowed tunnel under them?

  • @Robb sorry for not addressing that, he originally asked about Breaking

    My ultra can break a forcefield, head butt a neosteel bunker into rubble, but still can't push a few zerglings out of the way when i want it to attack something :) Aug 26, 2010 at 16:42

    @Peter what's worse is the thing's Kaiser blades already reach over the Zerglings and touch the enemy. Just swing the things damnit.

  • @tzenes - idle musing: I guess giving ultra's the ability to walk over other units would sort of be stealing the Collossus' thunder a bit. But maybe they could give zerglings the ability to run under massive units? or just make the range of an ultra's attack "one zergling plus .00001" Aug 26, 2010 at 18:15
