4-Queen (Vs. Terran)

Type:
Opening

Overview[edit]

The 4 Queen opening is a macro-based opening that relies almost entirely on Queens and Drones. The queens serve multiple purposes:

  • defend from early-game Terran harassment: Reapers, Hellions, Bunkers
  • Inject Larvae
  • start spreading creep. This is important to connect to a fast third if Zerg takes it, and also to set up the Zerg mid-game for map control

Goal[edit]

The goal is to take a fast third, or quickly saturate a two-base economy, while minimizing drone loss from harassment.

Basic Build Order[edit]

"4 Queen"


  1. depending on map and starting position

Notes[edit]

This opening can transition into a fast third base for more economy, or can stay on two bases and play defensively.
