Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty – Campaign walkthrough & strategy guide

Mission 14 Ghost of a Chance

NOTE: You will only do this mission if you chose to side with Nova against Tosh

This is another hero unit style mission where you’ll be primarily using just one powerful Ghost. Nova has a Snipe ability on cool down that can one hit kill any infantry unit, make sure to use it as often as possible.

1. Snipe the infatntry, have the squad destroy the detector units

As the mission starts move Nova down the cat walk to the side, killing the Marauder and looping around the back, stop when you get in range of the missile turret as it can see through your cloak. Send the marine/medic squad to take out the turret, taking out the bunker along the way.

2. Dominate the Siege Tank

Move everyone forward and Nova will gain the Domination ability which you can use on the Siege Tank. Be careful to stay out of the detection radius of the Raven as you approach.

3. Dominate the Battlecruiser

Have Nova snipe the stationed units and approach the Jorium stockpile. Use the domination ability on the Battlecruiser and it will destroy the stockpile for you.

4. Dominate the Raven

The next section is a bit more difficult. You'll start in another part of the base and immediately be attacked by a raven and some ground forces, dominate the Raven so you can't be detected and kill the ground units. Move forward and have Nova take out the two Vikings so Raynor can land his troops.

5. Open the Gate

Fly one of the Ravens over the wall and have it use a Seeker Missle on the marine closest to the highlighted gate power unit, you'll destroy both of them and open the gate.

6. Destroy the bunker with you Siege Tanks

Position your Siege Tanks just out of range of the bunker and have them take it out

7. Eliminate the enemy Siege tank with your Raven

Try and hold onto the first Raven you dominated, they'll be very helpful here. Keep an eye out for the Siege Tank on the platform after the bunker and have a Raven chuck an auto turret down, which will kill it. See? Useful. Have the other Raven use a Seeker Missile on the group of infantry gathered around the missile turret.

8. Send the Reapers around the side to eliminate enemy defenses

From here you can command your Reapers to jump up onto the raised area to the east which will give them a great opportunity to take out a siege tank, a bunker and a number of missile turrets.

9. Dodge the nuke

Once you press forward with the rest of the squad, Tosh will warn you about a present, it’s another nuke. Hang back and wait for it to go off. The trick is not being under it when it explodes.

10. Hack the Nuke Silo, Nuke the gas plant

If you've cleared the units on the right you should be ok to proceed with Nova, have her snipe that jerk Specter that called in the nuke and inch your way up the ramp to the left of the Gas depot. Snipe all the infantry here and have Nova hack the nuke silo.

Now go drop that bad boy on the gas depot.

11. Dominate the Siege Tank

The next section will have you controlling Nova and some Ships. First, head north a bit and dominate the Siege Tank. Inch it up to the ledge, put it in siege mode, and you'll be able to smoke a missile turret, a Goliath, a Bunker and more. This will make the north path easier. 

12. Dominate the Raven or continue using the Siege Tank

If you head north you'll be working towards a nuke silo that Nova can use. Have her Dominate the first Raven you see and use its auto turrets and seeker missiles to take out anything in your path. When you head down the ramp here pay attention as a nuke will get dropped right near the base of the Psi-Indoctrinator, so clear out..

13. Elimate the Specter

There's a Specter in the middle of the map between two missile turrets on the walk way. Use your Banshees to take out the turrets and the Goliath that's in the area.

14. Destroy the Psi-Indoctrinator

Essentially there's two ways you can do this, take the norhtern most path and get the nuke, or go south where you'll encounter an imprisoned Zerg Brutalisk you can unleash on Tosh's goons and a Thor unit that you can dominate.

The nuke method is easier, but the Southern path is more fun. destroy the barrier imprisoning the Brutalisk and he'll storm out, taking out the group of enemies nearby.  The Zerg unit can clear most of the bottom of the map, and the nearby Thor and some well placed Seeker missiles will take care of the troops around the Psi-Indoctrinators. you may have to bring your ships in to wipe out the stragglers. Or you can just nuke it if you're in a hurry.
