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

Mission 22 - Gates of Hell

1. Establish a defense

As usual, Marines and some bunkers will do the job here.

2. Build a ground force

More Marines, Medics, a few Firebats, and possibly a few Marauders, especially if you've upgraded them with the ammo that slows enemies.

3. Begin rescuing drop pods, be picky

Since you've already got decent infantry, try and focus on rescuing the aerial units and heavy weapons so you won't have to waste resources building the required structures

4. Push towards Warfield's downed ship with mercenary air units

Since your forces are somewhat limited here, take full advantage of the mercenary units, especially the mercenary Battlecruiser. If you opt to use the Battlecruiser you should be able to loop around behind the Nydus Worms and with the help of some Banshees take out the Spore Colonies.

5. Destroy the Nydus Worms

With the Spore Colonies down you'll be able to individually take down each worm with the Battlecruiser's lasers and Yamato Gun. If you park the ship over Gen Warfield's bunkers his SCVs will actually repair the Battlecruiser for you. If you start taking too much damage, just pull back to your area to the north and none of the ground units will be able to hit you.

    Thanks for this GR, I'm about 12 missions in and I'm starting to struggle now cos I suck at RTS games. So I'm looking forward to the rest of the guide :)
