Best Clash of Clans Troops

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

The Top Ten

1 Dragon

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

very good health, good DPS and splash makes it a strong defensive choice

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

I do not use dragons for attack but I donate them as cc troops because they are so good at wiping out archers and wizards

2 P.E.K.K.A

Pekka is so much more powerful than the barbarian king

too it with healers have you if defences through wipe can you win should They

P.E.K.K.A are so strong and are great for funneling, but in defense they are killed easy.

I use P.E.K.K.A. and Wizards for farming and I use GoWiPe for wars and it is so good. P.E.K.K.A. acts as a tank and an attacker at the same time. Just bring in some Rage, Healing, and Haste spells and watch your enemy's base get destroyed. It's my number 1 favorite troop!

3 Wizard

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!

best DPS per unit space hands down, can take out many point defences

Wizards are really great especially with P.E.K.K.A. Also they have fancy robes!

Wizards are awesome in groups! They may not have much health but they are great at just attacking! I myself like to use these paired with Dragons and I find them easy to donate to my clan members most have 20 Clan Castle space so 5 fills em right up! I love to use them against Resource bases because you can place 3 down, destroy the base, then end the battle and I get 6 - 10 easy trophies! Then spend 2 minutes to let me get 3 more, then head back out into battle! This works especially well for lower level players that are Silver II and under and can give you 100 trophies in under an hour!

4 Valkyrie

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

It's my favorite troop I am a th 10 and I always use 10 or 15 at a match.
They are very powerful in groups and I beet th 11 with them.
They destroy walls so quickly no jump spells needed.
Best for th 8,9,10.

Op in clan castles able to take out a swarm of barbs archer wizards with ease

Valkries are great in the CC. They can defeat a lot of barbarians with one swing of their ax.

5 Golem

Great tank! It has very good hitpoints and even damages buildings when it dies!

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.

Golem's are my favourite troop because they can be a huge tank and he is very reliable for an army to soak up damage and let the others do some damage.

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.

6 Giant

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

Giants are extremely slow and die before destroying all defenses. Half giants die before destroying level 4 walls. But Giants are still important because before unlocking dark elixir troops if they die the game is lost.

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

Giants are great because there cheap and they don't take that long to train there even better paired with wizards I would advise you use them if your a farmer but they still work great even if your not a farmer. there a bit slow but also paired with rage there not to bad they can help get past some tough spots.

7 Archer

solid pick for early game, hits over walls and good for cleanup

When you put some giants down to soak up some damage archers are the way to go

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.

8 Hog Rider

bypasses walls totally, can run faster than most clan castle troops and heroes

The hog riders are so good for funneling. If they couldn't jump over walls unless you use a jump spell, I would probably have not gone to crystal league as a th7.

Hog riders are good because you can mack them jump over walls without a jump speel

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

9 Balloon

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.

Balloon is good to take out defences because of its high damage. Although it has low life, lavahounds can distract most defences. In my opinion, though, dragon and pekka aren't that good. They have almost no brain

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

10 Witch

If in the CC, the witch would be dominating the battlefield. The ability that it could spawn skeletons is so powerful!

I love the Witch because of its good damage and its ability to summon skeletons!

bring out Larry! witch good very good the skeletons in fact are dead barbarians

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?

The Contenders

11 Barbarian

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!

Depends what level. Gold 3 and below barbarians are a huge help. Above that barbs are only used to help out the better troops. I think valkyries should be 1 or 2 along with dragons.

12 Lava Hound

great with baloon and dragons, once their air defenses are gone, its game over

I love how it goes to the air defense to tank other air troops like Balloons and Dragons

My friend got these and they are boss

Lava hound are only useful to save your flying troop

13 Archer Queen

can take over can entire base by itself and with the help of healers

Two words will explain why I love the Archer Queen and that is "Queen Walk"

Is god of range and can summon a crap ton of archers to do massive damage while u have meaty pekka up in the front. Just OP for every situation

Queen with a few healers can clear so much of the base and help so much in directing troops. Bowlers are the best, but they aren't on here, so I went with the queen because she is so important to a bowler healer army and healers aren't useful throughout many town hall levels. Dragons in mass are good but can be a little unreliable, PEKKA's even more so even when used in a gowipe or something. However the queen has the invisibility ability helping her get out of the tight spaces she gets herself into. Furthermore, she is useful in any army composition either to direct troops or clean up.

14 Wall 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!

15 Goblin

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.

Goblins are awesome! Best for loot! There favourite targets are Resources, Town hall and clan castle

Goblins are fast so they can steal loot fast for you

16 Healer

essential to queenwalks, saves you having to pack heal spells and makes tanks last longer

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

They should be 5-10, they are better than the normal heal spell.

17 Barbarian King

I like the Barb King because it is more powerful than the Grand Warden.

Barbarian king is OP and summons super overpowered barbs to tank damage and destroy while king does WORK plus it puts a rage spell for even more damage

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.

18 Minion

The mass minion strategy is so good for the goblin maps. With lv2 minions, I wrecked the goblin map called Rolling Terror in less than a minute.

When tanked with balloons, their destruction is total.

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

Good for the amount of housing space with seeking air mine proof

19 Bowler

it is so good how the ball bounces then hits another building it is awesome and it looks like a goblin a bit

These troops are awesome for taking out buildings behind buildings

A lot of them with heal spells and you will get stars

Throws huge boulders between buildings and causes double destruction.

20 Baby Dragon

I don't use Baby Dragons but they are very good cc troops especially for players below level 6 townhall because it can kill some archers and wizards very fast

Yes! As I'm writing this, the baby dragon and the miner have just come out 3 days ago. Everyone was hoping supercell added troops to clash of clans from clash royale, and they finally did. The only weird thing is that the baby dragon requires a higher leveled barracks than the dragon. I don't know about you, but in war, I'd rather have an adult on my side than a baby.

If you can circle a base with baby dragons they get raged and do more damage

The baby is much more cool than the adult.

21 Miner

The miner is invincible underground and using all 144 slots (max base) you can 1 hit everything in under one second, this leaves them up for less then one second meaning 1 shot or less will be shot at them. They are too overpowered.

Good at taking out barbs and archer queen on defense especially when archer queen behind a wall.

Don't have it, but I've seen gameplay with it and it's awesome

Miners are super op, and you can actually just spam 'em all in one place and they'll almost always get 2star, sometimes even 3stars.

22 Grand Warden

constant healing and great range, saves troops from exploding giga teslas and giga infernos as well as eagle artillery

IS THE ULTIMATE SUPPORT UNIT. can heal max pekka to full health and does ok damage. just a amazing unit.

How is the Grand Warden lower than FAKE troops?! I mean, he's not all that great, but that's why he's used for support rather than power like the Archer Queen or Barbarian King. Hopefully over time this list will clean up.

His supporting to other troops is amazing and he can save your pekka, for example, from a single target inferno with his ability.
