Building Information

B → N


The Sensor Tower senses - but does not detect - any approaching uncloaked, unburrowed enemy units and displays them as red exclamation marks in the fog of war. An opponent can see the Sensor Tower's radius as a circle on their minimap.

The Sensor Tower can be very useful on certain maps, such as Scrap Station and Antiga Shipyard because it can detect drops early and also warn of imminent Mutalisk harassment and allow the player time to move their forces to defend.

The Sensor Tower does not give units such as tanks with larger range than their vision the ability to fire on sensed targets.


Range: 30
Enemies under fog of war within the range of the Sensor Tower are marked with a red symbol displaying an exclamation mark.

  • The Sensor Tower used to be a tower used for detection which could then be upgraded to a "Radar Tower", which then gave it the ability to sense enemy units in the fog of war. The Radar ability was later on moved to the Sensor tower, the Radar Tower being scrapped.
  • The Sensor Tower also senses enemy Structures.
