So you want to learn the correct Terran units to counter with? In this guide I will show you the basics of countering as a Terran game player when playing against Zerg or Protoss players. This a general guide and is meant as an overview of the Terran counter units.

First we will talk about playing against a Zerg player. Countering early Zergling attacks as well as the other different units they can trough at you. The correct Terran counter unit for this attack is the hellion as it will do very good damage to groups of ground units like the zergling. Another attack the Zerg likes to use is the roach and hydro combo. The best Terran counter unit for this is the tank and thor combo as they will simply destroy the Zerg attack. The last thing a Zerg player might try is the mutalisk attack in which case you should just make marines and if you have a starport build some Viking units.

When playing against a Protoss player the first thing you should look for the is zealot and stalker combo. A good Terran unit counter for this is again the tank and thor combo, just make sure you have a few marines in front to protect the tanks. The Protoss player may try using colossus or immortals. To take out colossus just use thors as the colossus is not good at doing damage to large units. To destroy the immortals you will need to use marines and maybe some hellions, keep your tanks and thors away from the immortal as it is desgined to take down large units. Lastly he may try to use void rays and the perfect Terran counter unit for that is your vikings. Just build a few and you should have no trouble taking the void rays out.

If you learn these Terran counter units you should have no trouble beating even a diamond ladder Protoss or Zerg player!

Anyways, good luck to all of you and I hope to see you on BattleNet!
