Best Clash of Clans Troops

What are the best Clash of Clans Troops from Best to Worst?

The Top TenXW


12 Dragons will be extremely hard to take down, and they damages a LOT. One of the best troops.

I wonder why everyone else uses dragons so well. When I use dragons, they always go around the town hall. others keep telling me to use dragons for clan war and trophy pushing, but when I use then, they almost always go where ever I don't want them to go. I have only two starred a town hall 8 once. and I have never done any three star raids with dragons except against town hall sevens, even when I try funneling them towards the air defenses, they never do that. I even have trouble attacking some town hall sevens with dragons. I wonder how a lot of other people use dragons so well. Their my least favorite. After 12 failed raids, I stopped using them

Dragons seem amazing I'm sure they belong in the top 5 due to how much damage they can make. However they are extremely expensive, don't go after what they should be, and are rather slow. I say the should make #3 or #4.

I super hate it

Pekka is so much more powerful than the barbarian king

They are hard to take down and have a powerful attack

The P.E.K.K.A deals tons of damage and unlike the dragon is unaffected by traps and can kill heroes. Dragons can easily be killed by A.D. but P.E.K.K.A's only weakness is hidden teslas. P.E.K.K.A should be #1 on this list in my opinion.

PEKKA should be in first place

Wizards have long range attacks, and if you just put 3 at once beside an archer tower or cannon, it can easily help out the giants and balloons. Wizards can shoot over walls, do massive damage per second, and also have an AFRO!

Wizard does amazing damage and should be #1 not dragons because air defences make short work of them and space and cost they are the most expensive elixir troop and dragon can only be tanked by lava hounds which deal no dame but wizards can be tanked by many troops

Using around 15 or 18 with 3 healers for 3 squads you can use a tripod style attack with 18 giants (6 per squad) with 5 minions and 14 archers at high levels this load out can devastate most bases.

They are so powerful to

Awesome unit, although it's low damage points mean that it takes a lot of time to wreck the wall. Group with a couple of wall breakers and walls will disappear in no time at all. But they are pretty much exposed to eagle artillery especially. Put in giants as well and there will be a bigger possibility that the meat shield will last longer enough for the sweaters like wizards to clean out the rest of the remaining buildings.

Most health out of any troop (including its spawned troops), one of these (along with a decent army comp) can 3 star a base high up in crystal, master, and even champions. Not to mention, used by pretty much all champions league players, aka the guys that are the best at attacking/defending. Coincidence? I tink not.

Golems and Wall Breakers and Healing and Rage Spells are AWESOME

He is I'm possible to take down

5Hog Rider

Hog riders can help because they jump over walls and they do a lot of damage and have a lot of health

Hog Riders are the best! I don't have them yet but have seen them in battle, and I think they are the dragons of the lower level bases! My friends brag about all Hog Rider three star attacks. Dragons are great for higher level bases, and Hog Riders for lower ones! Love these guys, and really want them!

The only thing that can beat hogs are double giant bombs, clan castle troops, and the archer queen. Other then that, they are invincible! They jump over walls and do high damage!

Higher level high riders can destroy ultimately any base. They are great and powerful.

Valkyries are insanely powerful as Clan Castle troops. They can't be killed with one lightning spell and are hard to take out with mass barbarians and archers. The best way to take them out are spread archers, but that uses a lot of time, so they are amazing Clan Castle troops and I agree should be #1.

They aren't too hard to kill, actually. Well, it depends on your army. But Valkyries are good because of their health and damage. - Oliveleaf

Valkyries are great for Clan Castle defense! one valkyrie can take down a number of troops in one swoop of her bid, heavy and dangerous battle axe! The valkyrie is mostly used in war defences, but not much in attacks! Vote for the valkyrie, vote for defense!

Why do people hate it good health nice power can attack at least 5 targets just a lil pricy

It is very fast

Dragoons, and balloonions are my favorite troop combo, in all balloons are the most imp factor, they do and give heavy damage, without balloons dragons will wander, and taken down by air defences and also the minions are too fragile to get exposed, so in all ways it's the best troop of this game... Also the most favourite. - glambert

The Balloon is basically a giant that flies. It does ridiculous damage when massed over one place, and are very efficient.

Balloons at number 6 come on there perfect I attack with them all the time and the last upgrade is boss. I think they should be higher

Best drop bombs in bases

How is the witch lower than barbs and archers? As long as she's kept a little away from the battle, she's a boss! And why's the giant at 10?

Witches are great I don't think she should be #8 she stays a bit behind the other troops she is amazing not to mention she can bring back troops from the dead to help attack.

She does a lot of damage, and her minions will take the damage from defenses or traps for her. 2 or 3 of these will have a devastating effect.

Good, but one lightning spell can kill it. - Oliveleaf

V41 Comments

I like them because they attack the defenses instead of recourses so its more likely for you to win

Still effective in war at th10 if you bring some wiz with them.

It's good when you just start, because lower levels usually have a hard time getting rid of the defenses with just barbs and archers. - Oliveleaf

Giants are the most important troop until dark elixir is unlocked

In my opinion strength in numbers is key. What I do is spawn in 5-10 giants to draw the defenses fire then I spawn in about 50 barbs and let them tear it apart. Usually by the time the giants are dead the barbs have finished trashing the place and dominate the renaming defenses.
Their only downfall is that if the mortars and wizard towers don't get taken down quickly you are so screwed if you only have Barbs. which is why it is always handy to have a healer or two handy. If things still are not working for you get a lightning spell and healing spell into the battle.
I could go on for about 50 more reasons why this troop is the best. Also don't dislike this comment because I put barbs instead of Barbarians.

Barbarians are better than archers they have more health and are more powerful. They work great together in groups like 15 barbs after the same thing destroys it pretty quickly. Mortars can get these guys though so beware of putting them in groups sometimes.

Barbarian are very good troops they have the most damage in tier 1 group troops and they take only 1 housing space they do quite good amount of damage and goes will with king under ability,their only major weakness is splash damage although that doesn't matters much they can easily overwhelm any point defense and are good for farming and cleanup as they are extremely cheap!

Why the Barbarian

The Newcomers


Who the hell is the king pekka If he would be relesed that would be the end

The Contenders

11Lava Hound

My friend got these and they are boss

#1 in my opinion because they basically a flying golem, but even better, they don't split into 2; they split into 8(or more)

Lava hound are only useful to save your flying troop

Is impossible to take down

Archers are very effective when in a group they can shoot from a distance so they aren't always the center of attention. But they have low health so they die easily and their damage per second is low. They are quick though. Just watch out for mortars with these guys.

Archers are great, the only thing about them though is that they are killed in one shot by mortars, so heal spells won't even do anything.

The best troop in my opinion! You can drop 220 of them on a th9 and get a lot of loot without loosing trophies. Will almost always score a 50% damage using them. Combine with 8 earthquake spells and you can raid deep into a base and its storages using only archers

Archers aren't good my opinion is they should not be in place 12 before archer queen

V33 Comments
13Archer Queen

She does a lot of damage but her health is lower than a barb king. I'm not sure which one is better. I just know she costs more than a barb king but both can defend your base. And her upgrade to send out archers while she cools down is cool.

Archer queen 'SHE SHOOTS WALLS' she can be useful at times but she loves storages that sometimes makes me mad I HATE when she shoots walls but other then that she it pretty cool #worse then the barb king

Weird it does a lot more damage than barb king but normal barbs do more damage than normal archers

How is the archer queen lower then barbs and archers

V29 Comments

Come on healers are raid savers. Look at my story on the archer queen and you'll de what I mean.

Healers are good for th 6&7 but in th 8+ they are useless because the air defenses becomes more stronger and can easily take down a healer, that's why I wish I was in lower th and not in th 11

Best for loosing space But they are good at there job

Only good if high leveled - Oliveleaf

V21 Comments

When tanked with balloons, their destruction is total.

Add some dragons and balloons to the list and you will dominate

I like using minions for farming, just not for farming dark elixir

They blow ass

16Barbarian King

Well, every town hall 7 just can't WAIT to get their first hero. The barbarian king. The barbarian king is important because it shows a symbol of accomplishment of how far you have got to be here. And I also can symbolise the hard work you took getting and saving the dark elixir for something that precious! You'll never feel alone in your village and the other raiders would fear upon you in all kinds of attacks! And with your handy king, you can take damage more than a giant, and use the rest of the troops for back up. The amazing-spectacular part is - that you don't have to get more! #NotAnAdd

Barb kings are boss. They can take out almost anything with one hit. Also they spawn other barbs.

Barbarian Kings special ability is called iron fist which summons more barbarians when activated

Same queen comment

V22 Comments

Great for loot raids but that's about it. They wont do well for u if u are trying to trophy raid.

They should make goblins smarter. Since they are the fastest troops, they can run away from any clan castle troop. - Oliveleaf

The best farming troop all time

Very helpful

Farms and raids. What better combination? - Imusquishu12345

19Maxed Town Hall 11

First of all its not made of ice because it came out last year and second of all it is not a troop it's a Town Hall that looks like a white building with plants and a flag and other color detail.

Apparently, town hall level 11 is coming out soon and it is going to do made out of ice! By Max

Th11 is thing and a new hero is out the grand warden

Max town hall no one can beat us

V17 Comments
20Wall Breaker

Wall breakers are great they can break walls so the troops like giants can cross to go after defenses.

They should be in the top ten a good pack of wall breakers could get you all the way to the town hall area for me I use like 4-6

Wall breaker are only good for busting walls for golems or giants.

Good For Blasting Through Walls for ground troops like giant and barbarian and they do it with a BANG!
