This article contains lore taken from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness, Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.

From the deep, subterranean halls of Khaz Modan, the Dwarven Demolition Squads come to aid the Alliance in their crusade for the liberation of Khaz Modan. As masters in the handling and arming of explosives, these Squads are renowned for their ability to demolish any obstacle - from a mighty wall to a bulwark of solid stone. Reckless and bold, these Dwarves are zealous in their loyalty to the Alliance and would not hesitate to detonate their explosive payload should the situation turn grim...[1]

Information

  • Dwarven Demolition Squads are fast units with a suicide attack that deals 400 Piercing Damage to all adjacent ground units and buildings when they detonate (enough to destroy a Farm). This is their default action when you right-click on an enemy building or unit.
  • They will not deal damage if they are killed before they reach their target, even though their death animation shows them exploding.
  • They can also be ordered to attack normally, but are weak and fragile, just barely stronger than a Peasant. If attacked by an enemy unit, their default reaction is to flee.
  • Casting Invisibility or Unholy Armor on them will kill them instantly.
  • The computer player is not programmed to use Demolition Squads; if put under computer control in a custom map, they will just stand around doing nothing.
