I am Raygoza and keep contact with mod developers of mods I like, I like to help my offering suggestion and ideas. When it comes to modding I am not good at it, I am only able to change a few things in StarCraft and Homeworld 2.
Raynor's Raiders discovered the creature and destroyed its holding cell. When the cell was destroyed, the reaver then proceeded to destroy the facility. The Raiders barely escaped into a Hercules, after which the reaver "screamed" at them.
