Primary Objectives[edit]

  • Destroy the Protoss base
  • Kerrigan must survive
  • Deactivate the Temples


This mission starts off with Kerrigan and Stukov assaulting a protoss base. You should have no real problems taking it out, since it consist of a few cannons and a gateway, with a few zealots and some stalkers. When you have killed and destroyed everything, you will sadly lose control over Kerrigan.

You need to go to Temples in order for Kerrigan not to get killed by Narud. The bar at the top of your screen shows how close she is to losing. The first temple can be taken without building any extra army. Stukov has a strong health regen aura, so keep the army close to him, and it should not take too much damage. Any time you activate a temple the Protoss warp in units close to it. You can take them out easily while they are warping in. Try to return back to Stukov's range so that he can throw his spells at the Hybrids. The mission ends once the fifth temple is deactivated.

Cheap Trick: Leviathan[edit]

While the bulk of this mission has to be played without Kerrigan, you do have control of her during the intro, which ends after destroying every Protoss unit and building. By leaving one building alive you can extend the intro so that the Leviathan cooldown runs out. By summoning Leviathan and immediately destroying the last building, you get 4 minutes of Leviathan at the start of the main mission. A team made up of Stukov, Leviathan and your initial force can easily clean out a few Protoss positions in 4 minutes.


  • Destroy Xel'Naga Crystals
Destroy the green Pylons on the map
The first one is located to the right of the expansion outside your base. The second one is directly below the most north-western temple on the left. The third one is just a bit further to the right, guarded by Collossi.

Guide to all achievements
This is easier than it sounds. Take the expansion to the right of your base immediately. Take the two middle Temples, then max up your army with a few Ultralisks and a lot of Roaches and Hydralisks. Then, take the most left-top Temple. After you've cleared it, go to the right and up, there is the first base, rush into it to destroy it. Then take the top right Temple. Go down and to the right of it is the last protoss base. Remember that you need to kill off all the structures on the map as well.
