Offensive Sunken

From Liquipedia StarCraft Brood War Wiki

The Offensive Sunken is a rare but interesting Strategy that involves a Zerg player placing a Sunken Colony in a position where it can attack the enemy. This Strategy is most only seen in Zerg vs. Zerg although it can also be done on maps with creep generated by a neutral Creep, Sunken, or Spore Colony, a primary example being Colosseum.

In most match ups, this Strategy is almost an all-in Strategy because it requires an early Drone sacrifice that hurts your early game economy. If the Offensive Sunken fails, then the player who attempted it can try to come back depending on how much damage was done and how much the opponent's economy was delayed.
