I. Introduction [01.INTR]

The purpose of this guide is to help Starcraft II campaign players make good
choices on how to spend their limited credits in the Wings of Liberty Campaign.
As with any FAQ, these suggestions are my opinions and nothing more.  After
repeated playthroughs of the campaign, I've come to realize which upgrades are
helpful, and which are mostly garbage.

If you haven't played the campaign, here is the first thing you should know -
the credits you earn in the Wings of Liberty Campaign are not enough to
purchase all of the upgrades available to you.  Here are the totals:

 2,030,000 from mission rewards and bonus objectives (includes secret mission)
   220,000 from excess research points sold to Mobius

 2,250,000 maximum credits per campaign playthrough

V. Recommendations [05.RECO]

These recommendations are based on helping you complete the campaign with
upgrades that are worthwhile and helpful to complete later missions.  Many of
these suggestions will also prepare you to complete some of the harder mission
achievements by utilizing available units effectively.  These upgrades should
be obtained as you can afford them.  Keep in mind that once you obtain the
Zeratul missions after "The Dig", you can rake in a LOT of research points
which you can use to finish off your Lab Research or cash in for credits.

   TOTAL ARMORY UPGRADE COSTS                                 2,025,000 credits

   These upgrades will update the units that you will want to use most often.
   I've ranked these upgrades in priority order.  Depending on which mission
   order you choose, you might have to purchase these in a slightly different
   way.  In general, try to plan your next mission selections so you'll be able
   to afford 1 or 2 upgrades after the mission.  It is also helpful to have
   certain units available before you attempt certain missions.  For example,
   It is strongly recommended that you have Vikings before you attempt
   "The Dig."  If you want to get the "Yippee-Ki-Yay..." achievement, you'll
   want air support to scout for your laser drill.  Trust me.  



   While many players don't like to turtle, it really pays off in the campaign.
   Fortifying your bunkers will be well worth the investment.  Adding two slots
   is a real help since you can get more firepower out of fewer Bunkers.  The
   Projectile Accelerator adds needed range so the Bunker takes less damage.
   Once you fortify them with the Zerg Research upgrade, Bunkers are just plain
   great defensive structures.

   Missile Turret

   Hellstorm Batteries shut down mass air units.  Put a pack of them around your
   base and you'll be well protected from air assaults.  The Titanium Housing
   adds life to them as well, which helps since they can be rather fragile if
   not repaired quickly.


   Until you can unlock Science Vessel, these guys are your only option to heal
   mech units.  The Dual-Fusion Welders help them complete very fast repairs.
   They also make great base defenders when patrolling your defensive line.
   Advanced Construction isn't that helpful because you end up committing too
   many workers to a building project when you could be advancing your economy.
   You might get a building much faster, but once your building is up, you have
   to play catch-up with yourself.  Not worth it.

   Terran Building

   The Orbital Command Center might seem like pure utility at first, but when
   you call down your first MULE, you'll realize how quickly they boost your
   economy.  They might fall apart after a short while, but they're free
   harvesters that are many times more effective than a regular SCV.  The
   Scanner Sweep is a great bonus, especially in the middle of the campaign
   when your detection abilities are rather pathetic.  Fire-Suppression
   can be beneficial if you're attention is somewhat divided during a mission.
   Free building healing is always good.


   Marines are a staple to a Terran army, so upgrading them to full is a must.
   Stimpack makes them a good choice throughout the campaign when paired with
   Medics or Medivacs.  Combat Shield adds longevity to their usefulness, which
   is always good.


   Medics only have one useful upgrade in the Stabilizer Medpacks, but it keeps
   your units alive a lot longer.  The Advanced Medic Facilities upgrade is a 
   waste of credits.  If you really need a Reactor more than a Tech Lab, you
   should probably just throw up a second Barracks and put one on each.


   Marauders are amazing.  Concussive shells is one of the most important
   upgrades in the campaign.  It slows ground movement for enemy troops,
   allowing other units to get more shots off before they can retaliate.
   Adding Kinetic Foam also helps keep them alive longer, which is always a
   good thing.  It's a shame you can't use Stimpacks on them in the campaign.


   Reapers are great at destroying buildings, but their upgrades aren't
   necessary.  If you want to use Reapers, don't worry about needing upgrades.
   Keep in mind that Reapers are excellent when paired with Hellions during
   Colony missions.  They still don't need upgrades.


   Hellions are fast and powerful.  They have very weak armor though, so be
   careful.  With Thermite Filaments and Twin-Linked Flamethrower, they dish
   out a lot of pain to ground troops.  If you can keep these away from the
   front of your mobile forces, they will be very useful to you throughout
   the campaign.


   If it weren't for Multi-Lock Weapon System, Goliaths probably wouldn't be
   as useful.  However, if you send them out with a few SCVs, they can handle
   themselves quite well.  The added range from Ares-Class Targeting System
   is also very helpful when facing groups of enemy forces.

   Siege Tank

   Both Siege tank upgrades are very expensive, but with good reason.  With
   Maelstrom rounds, the damage output from a group of siege tanks is crazy
   strong.  Shaped Blast allows your units to move in while under fire
   without worrying about the siege splash damage taking you out as well.


   The Medivac upgrades make them into a mini Hercules with great bio-healing
   (except you don't need a Fusion Core... ugh).  Very useful, even if you do
   get them rather late in the campaign...


   When you start to get air power, Vikings are very versatile - and both
   their upgrades are excellent.  Ripwave Missiles improve their anti-air
   capabilities tremendously.  The range upgrade from Phobo-Class Weapons
   really improves their anti-air, and makes their ground mode much more
   effective.  A mixed group of ground/air Vikings makes a really good
   strike force for their cost in the campaign.


   Banshees are great stealth strike fighters.  A group of them is lethal with
   Shockwave Missile Battery.  Cross-Spectrum Dampeners doubles their cloak
   time, which is really useful in later missions.


   Battlecruisers are great to use in the campaign if you can get a few out.
   However, Battlecruiser upgrades are way too expensive, and rather
   disappointing.  The Missile Pods are a lot like the Hellstorm Battery upgrade
   for Missile Turrets.  However, they require activation just like the Yamato
   Cannon.  If choosing between the two... I always pick Yamato Cannon.  The
   Defensive Matrix upgrade is just like the Science Vessel ability from SC/BW.
   However, it uses a lot of energy that could better be used on Yamato shots.


   Thors are great mobile siege units for the Terran army.  Their anti-air is
   a bit lacking, but they make up for it in longevity and raw power.  The
   Immortality Protocol for Thors helps mitigate the cost of their production
   while allowing you to rebuild them for 200 gas wherever they fall.  Since
   they are rather slow, this might happen more than you want it to.  The 330mm
   Barrage Cannon isn't a BAD upgrade, but for how often you'll use it, it
   really isn't that helpful.  Their standard cannon is enough to take down key
   buildings if you need to.

   THE BAD   

   Conversely, some unit upgrades are simply not worth any investment.  Aside
   from the missions where they are introduced, the following units are almost
   completely useless in the campaign:


   I don't know what they were thinking bringing Firebats back in SC2.  
   Marauders outclass them in EVERY way.


   Vultures are another oddity.  Spider mines are good for base defense in some
   circumstances, but bunkers and siege tanks are much better.  Swann even
   makes fun of them during the campaign if that's any clue.


   Diamondbacks are good for "chasing" units.  Well, since the only mobile
   target you face in the game happens to be during the mission you GET
   Diamondbacks, can you guess how useful they are after that?  Don't bother.


   Wraiths could have been good.  However, Vikings are better at anti-air, and
   Banshees are just plain brutal with Shockwave Missile Battery.  There is no
   reason to use or upgrade Wraiths.


   It really annoys me how ineffective Ghosts/Spectres were in the campaign.
   Still, both units have neat skills that you don't get to use all that often.
   The Snipe ability is really effective if you have a group of Ghosts out,
   whereas Mindblast can incapacitate groups of enemies for a short period.
   Yet for some reason, Ghosts/Spectres can't use EMP outside of multiplayer...
   Unfortunately, most of the enemy bases are swarming with detectors
   (especially when you're against Protoss).  Since you don't get any form of
   mobile detector until you've amassed 20 Protoss research points, this makes
   stealth attacks close to pointless (Banshees are the exception since they
   fly and can make devastating ground bombing runs while cloaked).  They're
   also very costly to produce (150 minerals/150 gas).  Ghosts/Spectres are
   very susceptible to ground based burrowed units and colossi.  They're just
   too weak to be worth any credit investment.  Besides, they don't need
   upgrades to nuke...

 B. Mercenary Contracts [5B.MERC]

  Hammer Securities                                              30,000 credits
  Spartan Company                                                40,000 credits
  Siege Breakers                                                 45,000 credits
  Hel's Angels                                                   45,000 credits
  Dusk Wings                                                     60,000 credits

  TOTAL MERCENARY CONTRACT COSTS                                220,000 credits

  These contracts compliment many of the upgrades mentioned above.  Buy these
  when you don't have enough credits to buy the next upgrade from the Armory
  console.  Jackson's revenge is a strong unit, but it costs a bit too much to
  only get ONE per mission.  Kind of a disappointment.

 C. Laboratory Research [5C.LABO]


   Level 5  - Vanadium Plating

   Vanadium Plating is the better choice.  Those few extra life points really
   do make the difference.  The increase rate of fire isn't that helpful.
   Besides, if you want to increase rate of fire, just use Stimpacks.

   Level 10 - Micro-Filtering

   Micro-Filtering is better than Orbital Depots.  If you really have trouble
   maintaining your army supply, you really shouldn't be playing RTS games.
   I've never been in a situation where I thought, "Man, I need five Supply
   Depots... RIGHT NOW!"  The increased gas production is very helpful once
   you start unlocking more gas-heavy units.

   Level 15 - Automated Refinery

   Automated Refinery complements Micro-Filtering greatly.  Since you don't
   need SCVs to harvest gas anymore, your harvesters can focus on minerals
   and structures.  Hence, Command Center Reactor isn't needed (especially
   if you utilize MULEs like you should be!).

   Level 20 - Science Vessel

   Many of these choices are easy... except the Science Vessel.  Raven's have
   some really neat tricks up their sleeves that deal great damage without
   putting it in harms way.  However, the usefulness of the Science Vessel
   cannot be ignored.  Like the Medivac, flying mobile mech healing is just too
   good to pass up.  Irradiate is also great against large units that you need
   to soften up.

   Level 25 - Tech Reactor

   The Tech Reactor is just plain awesome.  It doubles your production output
   and grants access to all units at each facility.  Drop pods really can't
   compete with that.  


   Level 5  - Fortified Bunker

   The extra life on your bunkers will be well worth it.  The Shrike Turret is
   rather weak, and later in the campaign you'll get frustrated at how easily
   your bunkers fall.

   Level 10 - Perdition Turret

   The Perdition Turret is strong and affordable as a point defense structure.
   The Planetary Fortress is strong, but you'll want to have an Orbital
   Command more for scanner sweeps and MULEs.  Besides, if the enemy has
   already made it to your mineral line, you have bigger problems.

   Level 15 - Hercules

   This tier just plain sucks for both choices.  The Predator is quick and can
   mow down weak units with relative ease, but can't absorb much damage.  The
   Hercules would outstrip the Medivac in usefulness if it wasn't for the fact
   that it requires a Fusion Core to make them.  That alone badly hurts it's 
   usefulness.  Still, if you're going to choose between the two, Hercules is
   the better choice.  It can serve as an early Medivac if you stock it with
   Medics and ground troops.  Just don't expect it to be fast.

   Level 20 - Regenerative Bio-Steel

   Since Ghosts and Wraiths suck and Banshees can double their energy
   efficiency with an upgrade, the only units that will benefit from Cellular
   Reactor would be Medics, Medivacs, Science Vessels (or Ravens), Thors,
   and Battlecruisers.  Healing is definitely important, but it's not worth
   passing up Bio-Steel.  Unless you really need units to come out of the
   production line running, the extra starting energy isn't that useful.
   Free vehicle and starship healing, however, is VERY useful.

   Level 25 - Psi Disrupter

   The Psi Disrupter is where it's at.  This thing slows down ALL Zerg that
   approach it.  When placed at a choke point, your bunkers/turrets/tanks will
   shred oncoming Zerg with impunity.  The Hive Mind Emulator is neat, but the
   units have to be in range first, and the battery takes a long time to 
   recharge between uses.  You could use your time better by producing more


VI. Frequently Asked Questions [06.FREQ]

Q: How many credits are obtainable in the Wings of Liberty Campaign?

A: 2,250,000 credits are available in game between mission rewards and
   extra research sold.

Q: I only got 2,055,000 credits on my playthrough.  What gives?

A: You probably didn't get the secret mission "Piercing the Shroud."  While
   playing "Media Blitz," be sure you destroy the Science Building at the lower
   right of the map.  If you missed it, you'll have to restart to get it.

Q: I forgot to sell my excess research to Mobius before going to Char!  How
   do I redeem these for credits?

A: Just click on the "Research Button" on the bottom navigation.

Q: Can I get any more credits once I complete the game?

A: Nope.  There wouldn't be much point anyway since you can't upgrade units
   after you complete the "All In" mission.

Q: I heard that you could play missions over again and collect more research
   points to sell to Mobius, why can't I get this to work?

A: That was a nice little bug that Blizzard fixed.  The current credit cap
   is all you get.

Q: How am I supposed to get all the Tech achievements if I don't get enough
   credits to buy everything?

A: It requires some planning, but refer back to the guide to plan out your most
   vital upgrade needs.  Bank credits until you have all the units unlocked for
   that tier, then save the game.  Go purchase all the upgrades for that tier
   and get your achievement.  Reload your save and you'll still have the
   achievement.  Problem solved.

Q: Hey!  I tried that and I don't have enough to buy all the Starship upgrades?

A: The campaign has a credit limit.  You can only have 1,000,000 credits at a
   time.  You'll have to buy some upgrades before you can bank enough to do
   the save, purchase, reload trick (may I suggest upgrading Vikings?).

Q: Why are you hating on (-insert unit name here-)?  They're awesome!

A: It seems the campaign was designed to showcase the new Terran units and
   give fan service to the units from SC1/BW.  Granted, it was cool, but some
   units just don't shine well.  Too bad.

Q: How do I get (-insert classic unit name here-) in multiplayer?

A: You can't.  See previous answer.

Q: Isn't there any way to get more credits?

A: Well, you could use the "whysoserious" code, but it disables achievements.
   Have fun, cheater.
