Wasp, common name applied to most species of hymenopteran insects, except bees and ants. Insects known as wasps include parasitic wasps, and the stinging wasps, which are the best known. About 75,000 species of wasps are known, most of them parasitic. Common parasitic wasps include the Spider Wasp, common name for any of a family of wasps that hunt spiders to feed their young. A spider wasp quickly subdues the spider it preys on. The wasp's sting affects the spider's central nervous system, paralyzing but not killing the spider. Often the spider is too large to carry in flight and the wasp must drag it to the nest. Some species bite off the spider's legs to make it easier to drag and may drink blood that leaks from the wounds. The wasp lays an egg on the paralyzed spider, which is eventually eaten by the wasp's larva.
Similar to the Hornet but weaker in general combat, the Wasp boasts the unique Assassinate ability. This ability uses a full endurance bar to deal 40% of a target’s maximum health in damage, regardless of its health or defense- 3 stings will kill any unit. This ability makes the Wasp an excellent emergency unit to have on hand, as it can be used to eliminate Loners, high-defense creatures, spotters, and other units that your army may not have accounted for.
