Description[edit]

The Bunker is a Terran static defense building that is very useful for protecting infantry units and Walling Off. The Bunker will increase the range of units inside by +1 and the Bunker can be repaired by SCVs. The Bunker's Salvage ability makes Bunkers an effective option for panic defense as when the assault is over, they can be sold for a 75% cost return.

Bunkers can be used in similar ways to their Brood War counterpart and can be used offensively for a Bunker Rush or as part of builds like the 2-Rax Rush or a Reaper-opening.

It is important to note, that once you research Stimpack (and Ghost abilities) it can be used by units inside the Bunker. Hellbats cannot Load into Bunkers. Was the repeated subject of Balance Updates by Blizzard, when the Two-Rax Proxy Rush was first made popular in Wings of Liberty.
