Hallucinated Powerup

For the Computer game Starcraft.


To execute this glitch you will need to hallucinate a powerup. There are two ways to obtain a hallucinated powerup. One, you can preplace it using the editor with the Hallucinated box checked, or two, Hallucinate a powerup that has health with a High Templar.

Next, grab one of the hallucinations with a worker. Once the hallucination wears off, you'll notice the worker will still be holding the other one that was hallucinated.

So guess what happens when that worker is destroyed? The game crashes. If the worker is destroyed before hallucination wears off, it won't crash. (Thanks MrrLL for discovery).

Now there's more to this glitch than it seems. See, because the hallucination wears off, it simply doesn't exist anymore. The reason behind crashing is that it drops its powerup(which we know doesn't exist anymore), and it tries to drop "nothing". BUT, if NEW units are created, it will drop that new unit(actually, it will move it) once the worker is destroyed. Now, the new unit that it drops can actually be picked up!!! This is what gives the glitch its attention.

So, how do you make it work correctly? Once the hallucination runs out, create as many units as there were hallucinations, and then a few extra as a precaution for crashing.

Once you think you are ready, kill the worker and it will move whatever unit you built after to its location. There are many interesting side effects for this glitch.

 You can move buildings and/or units AS they are being constructed or trained.
 You can move Nuclear Missiles out from their silo(and launch them after).
 You can move Scarabs or Interceptors out from their Reavers or Carriers.
 You can make Map Revealers appear after it is created with a map trigger.
 You can pull units out of transports or bunkers(unit icon remaining inside).
 You can move addons without having them disconnect.

Now the unit that moves can be picked up, so it is time for more explanation. See, when you pick up the unit, it will "become something else". This new unit --or overlay, for the technical term-- does not really exist, because it's just an image of the unit(Like a fake, I guess we can call it). But picking up some units can actually crash your game, so if you're interested, there is a list of stable units here:
