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.

Dragons are the best troop! I always use dragons with lightening spells for attacking for trophies and in wars! Very successful troop! My favourite!

I thing dragon is best troops to get 2 stars or 3 Stars on the 10 or 11 and if their is more then 5 dragon it may be take 1 star at least. So by my way all dragon is best strategy.

Dragons are great at high level and can act as a shield for balloons

3 Wizard

Wizards are the best

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!

Awesome for TH5, TH6, TH7, TH8 mainly

High damage

4 Valkyrie

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

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

My one of the favorate troop

5 Golem

I like him cause he is good whenever you have him even th12

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.

Golem's are so cool

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.

6 Giant

Simpley epic

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.

7 Archer

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

use full

I vie
Fhhffdggg

They are cool

8 Hog Rider Hog Rider

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

My friend is going to give me one

I love the hog it is great it jumps walls which is a easier way to take down these towers

9 Balloon

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

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.

Wah re wah balloon,balloon and giant is my favourite

10 Witch

Best unit like ever

They are infinite troop sources

They're pretty good actually. But only high level one

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!

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.

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

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!

12 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

13 Archer Queen

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

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.

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

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.

14 Wall Breaker

Good support

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.

15 Goblin

I'm the green goblin?! no I am!

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

16 Healer

Amazing support

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

17 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.

18 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

17 Comments
19 Bowler

Bollywood are best

This should be #1

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

Why isn’t this number 1

20 Baby Dragon

Amazing for th4 5 6 7

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

21 Miner

Great troop

WHO MADE THIS THEY ARE SO DUMB MINERS aren't THE WORST TROOP THEY ARE TOP 8 FOR SURE

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

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.

22 Grand Warden

Grand Warden is a butt he sucks

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

How is he in this position

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