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.

I love dragon

12 dragons will take forever to take down, but cost a lot of elixir, so I try to keep a low budget I can. For level 1 dragons the only thing I'd be worried is level 5+ air defense and level 8+ archer towers. Wizard towers level 1-6 are nothing for dragons.

Are you joking me it's a dam dragon!

2 P.E.K.K.A

Pekka is so much more powerful than the barbarian king

P.E.K.K.A is actually no 4 troop in clash of clans. First best troop is electro dragon with dazzling strength and if a electro dragon dies a lighting spell will fall on the ground which can damage the defenses even the inferno tower and eagle artillery. The troops from strongest to weakest are given below :
4. P.E.K.K.A
According to heroes, the best are as follows :
So I hope that this information was good and I hope you would have liked it
So thanks and all the best for the people who are playing clash of clans.
And bye.

It is extremely powerful by itself; this troop is frequently paired with wizards, golems, valkyries, and multiple strategies. A meat shield and an excellent attacker, but they are slow in movement and attack speed. - illusion

Pekka in my opinion is probably 2nd best behind electro dragon pekka being best ground troop and electro dragon being the best air 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!

Wizards are the 2nd best for me behind dragons level 5+ wizards are awesome

These are op

Wizards + Hogs + heal spells = 3 stars (at least for me)

4 Valkyrie

Best defense troop in the game

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!

Valkyrie are boss - BreakFastBeast2005

5 Balloon

Wah re wah balloon,balloon and giant is my favourite

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

It may be slow, and low hitpoints it has a moderate damage, can go through walls because it is in the air (=P) and targets defenses =D

I love lava loon!

6 Golem

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

Most hitpoint troop in ground

7 Hog Rider Hog Rider

Use 70 of them with 5 healers

Useless before lvl5 but second they get there, they become masters. 30 hogs and 3 heals with a kill squad is too much sauce and power to handle


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

8 Giant

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

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.

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.

Max level giants are the best!

9 Archer Queen

Overpowered combine with 1 or 2 golems, witches and archers will get 2 stars for me and on occasion 3

Easily the best unit you can have in the game, the range/ability is amazing

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.

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.

10 Archer

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

They die by one mortar shot, terrible card

The Contenders

11 Lava Hound

My friend got these and they are boss

Lava hound are only useful to save your flying troop

#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)

They are not bad But a Team of lava hounds And giants are good

12 Witch

Yes a single witch CAN take out a Pekka or barb king because they get distracted by the skeletons. It is pretty funny to watch!

I'm pretty sure 1 witch could beat the poop out of barb king and pekka

Keep her a bit away from defences and let her skeletons do the work but be careful because they have that much health

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?

13 Grand Warden

Grand Warden is a butt he sucks

How is he in this position

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. - SunfireCobra

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

14 Barbarian

Yes really. They are deadly in huge hordes and accompanied archers in BARCH Strategy. I use it often.

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 my best troop I put them in groups the only troop that is standard and easy to use I destroy enemies easy in a full group

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.

15 Healer

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. - micahisthebest

Best for loosing space But they are good at there job

16 Bowler

This should be #1


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

Why isn’t this number 1

17 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

Need a good troop in the cc? well the wall breaker is for you

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

18 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. - Oliveleaf

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

19 Miner

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

Miners are so cool put them in the top 12

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.

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

20 Barbarian King

The barb is the best troop in the game

Archer queen is better

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.

21 Minion

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

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

22 Baby Dragon

Dead - BigFatNoob22

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
