The Overseer works in concert with other Scourge forces much more than the Desolator, which seeds wanton destruction everywhere. Instead, it increases the destructive capability and plasma energy of nearby units, creating a more insidious threat.
Bizarrely different from most Scourge units, the Overseer has little by way of offensive weaponry in the classic sense. The bulbous structure below the hull houses the Ion Cradle, which feeds energy from the huge power plant into nearby units. This boosts the already potent plasma weapons in its allies, upping their energetic potential considerably. This can be channelled into greater damage at short range or increasing the range of plasma blasts; both options cause dismay to the enemy, caught unawares as heavy units die in droves and strongpoints thought to be out of reach suddenly come under fire.
The Ion Cradle’s energies crackle around it, creating a halo of dangerous energy. In its only direct offensive capability, the Overseer can unleash this pent up potential, annihilating aircraft within close range, but doing little to ground based targets as the construct relies on the boosted damage of its ground based minions for this instead.
