4-Queen (Vs. Terran)
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
The goal is to take a fast third, or quickly saturate a two-base economy, while minimizing drone loss from harassment.
Basic Build Order
This opening can transition into a fast third base for more economy, or can stay on two bases and play defensively.
