Zerg rush is a term used in several real-time strategy games (RTS) to describe an overpowering attack by a player against his opponent, usually early in the game. This term was popularized by "StarCraft". The Zerg, the most well-known playable race in the game, has the ability to rapidly produce small and cheap offensive units called zerglings in a short period of time, allowing the player to overwhelm his opponents forces very early in the game.
