Starcraft 2 SCV
Terran Unit Strategy Guide
|Body Class||Light, Mechanical, Biological|
|Training Requires:||Command Center|
The Terran SCV are their gatherer and builder unit. They possess the unique ability (compared to other workers) in that they can repair Terran structures. They are cheap early-game scouts in Multiplayer and can give you invaluable information about what to expect from the opponent.
Special Abilities and Upgrades
SCVs can use their Repair ability to fix up any type of terran Mechanical unit or building. They are used throughout the campaign and occasionally in Multiplayer to repair buildings or units with their Repair ability set to auto-cast. While it is ON by default in the Campaign, it's off by default in Multiplayer, so you will have to enable it.
By patch 1.2, the AI had been trained to give SCVs a higher priority in combat as they're soft and can keep a powerful unit alive for quite some time in combat.
