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? – Peter Recore Aug 26 '10 at 16:43

    @Peter nope. Forcefields are unrelated to the Sentry that casts them. – tzenes Aug 26 '10 at 17:15

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 Aug 26 '10 at 16:16
  • @Robb sorry for not addressing that, he originally asked about Breaking – tzenes Aug 26 '10 at 16:18

    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 :) – Peter Recore Aug 26 '10 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 Aug 26 '10 at 17:15
  • @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" – Peter Recore Aug 26 '10 at 18:15
