Killerbot is a StarCraft AI, written by Marian Devecka, of the Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia. It uses mainly Zergling and subsequently Lurkers and/or Mutalisks. Also uses Queens and Hydralisks.

Facts[edit]

  • The 2015 version is more versatile, doesn't crash as much and is (2015-11-28) one of the top AIs in the field.
  • The 2013 version used strong Lurker play, making it the best Zerg AI of its time. It did however have a tendency to crash often.

Strategies[edit]

  • ZvP: 3 hatch Mutalisk, Zerglings based on scouting information.
  • ZvT: 3 hatch Lurker, transition into Hydralisk Queen if Terran goed Mech.
  • ZvZ: Mass Zergling with speed and +1 melee.
