The Roach Warren is a building that gives the Zerg player the ability to create and upgrade Roaches. The two upgrades that are available at the Roach Warren are Tunneling Claws, and Glial Reconstitution.

Roaches are common in most matchups, so this building is often added after the pool for early defence and larvae efficiency.
