The Seraphim T1 Combat Scout, nicknamed the Selen, is a Seraphim unit. It is a utility unit. The Selen has both stealth and cloaking capabilities when it stands completely still, rendering it immune to detection except from Omni sensor arrays. It can be used to set traps if used properly and if the enemy is the same tech as its opponent. The stealth and cloaking require no energy whatsoever, but just remember that these abilities disappear the moment the selen moves or attacks, until it stands completely still again.

It is important to remember that, despite its effective weapons, the Selen is a scout, not a light assault bot. At least three selens are required to take out any light assault bot, at about 1.5x the cost--selens are not effective for preventing rush attacks. They are best reserved for sneak/surprise attacks and traps, which they excel at. See Using the Seraphim for Rush Attacks for more information.

Sneaky Tip:Edit

If set to "Hold Fire" and parked directly on top of a mass extraction point, a Selen will block an enemy engineer from building a Mass extractor there. This makes it even more important to send selens with the rest of your attack force...any opportunity you can take to block off a strategic build point, such as a mass deposit, divert your selens to block off that point before an engineer can build an extractor there. Note: If the enemy engineer performs an "attack move" across the mass extraction point, it will reclaim the invisible Selen and then will be able to build a Mass extractor if queued to do so.

Uses as a combat scoutEdit

In games of LAB Wars, the Selen is both a hindrance and a blessing. With it's stealth and cloak, you could set up a hidden army outside of your enemy's ACU's omni range and destroy any expansions bases they attempt to make. However, the only way you will be able to defeat an opposing army is to outnumber it and hope there is no enemy ACU among them, unless you bring your own ACU along. Also, they cannot be loaded onto a transport to make a ghetto gunship.

In normal games, build selens to cut off mass extractors or prevent the construction of expansions. Use them like an undetectable scout until they are close to an ACU or omni, and always move them further along while your opponent is too busy to notice so you can gain more intelligence.
