*Cough* The Gauss rifle shoots Iron Spikes, not bullets, It says in the book ''Liberty's Crusade'' I think

And, I dont think it takes much to take down a zergling, take the game for example. Lone Marines kill zerglings in about *Does math* about 7 bursts including the zergs regeneration to kill em.

But in the books, it takes only 1-2 bursts. Geh, my brain feels funny.... :><:

They shoot big pointy uranium spikes (when upgraded) at nearly the speed of sound.

The marines ingame obviously don't wear glasses (with the exception of the tough marine in the opening cinematic), look at their portraits.

Yea, but those marines aren't as cool as the Opening Marine.

Im guessing, around 240 bullets. Maybe 250. I stand by my statement!

Actually the marines in StarCraft have a heavy resemblance of astronauts than a modern marine due to use of outer space.
The concept art behind StarCraft II for the Terrans were aimed at to show how it would work if it were reality such as: How a Marine is built in under minutes, how does certain features in and on a Marine armor functions (Tubes on the back, inside the armor's wrist is actually a human hand in control of robotic hands outside, etc) and so on.

Or they just wanted it to look really cool and loosely based the art on already made space marines (warhammer).

So, the question is, how many bullets does a marine need to kill/destroy [unit/building name here] before the marine is killed?
HP / (6 + upgrades - armor)

I've always wondered. How does a barrage of uranium shells not puncture a pathetic larva?

Just last night I learned about the edit button. Sorry for my noobish mistakes X.X
On the internet? Or this forum? I would assume 99% of forums allow you to edit your post as long as your logged in as a member. WHATEVZ.

Well a larvae has a carapace...that of which is like what? Twice as strong of that of an ultralisk? So i'm not really surprised.

Suicidal Insanity -- I ran a duplicate file find tool on my photo drive - it claims 125k potential duplicates based on file size. I wonder if that is just the .XMP files or actual photos. Probably should have excluded XMP now that I think about it.
