Worst Troops In Clash of Clans

You want to attack with a good army, but people are saying that a troop is bad and others are saying that they are good. So which troops should you NOT use?

The Top Ten

1 Goblin

Actually really great for wrecking bases early on after mortar is gone. - computerfan0

Wizard towers, bombs and mortars are lethal, other than that they would be alright.

Not used them since early days...

But maybe goblins is not bad.goblins can destroy outside town hall for doubled damage

2 Lava Hound

Why number one worst troop? They have tons of health and their awesome. Their one of my favorites. Lava hounds can be used to occupy the air defenses while balloons wreck the base. The balloons can do massive damage but air defenses can take them out easily. But when air defenses are attacking something else, the balloons can wreck the base without worry. The lava hounds are the best, troop, for the air defenses to be occupied on when the balloons wreck the base. A lava hound can occupy and air defense for quite a long time.

Oh these comments, it's a tank. It's like a flying golem.

Of course it doesn't do any damage because it's job is too soak up all the damage from the defenses.

The lava hound said "I am just going to fly over this air defense and let it kill me"

It's job isn't to do damage it's job is to take in damage, it should be the number three best troop

balloons do lots of damage but have little health, lava hounds are the opposite

if you could get the air defense to only target your lava hounds while your balloons destroy all the defenses, you win, and it's easy to do that.

3 Wall Breaker

They don't go alone. Walls are a deadly defense and will cause your troops to go around the base instead of into the center. Wall breakers are great for breaking walls, for just a few housing spaces they can break through a layer of walls and allow your other troops to wreck the base

Uh, the strategy of HOW you use them matters. - Turkeyasylum

Wall breakers are powerless against defences but are quite good for destroying walls.

The wall breakers are just stupid so so stupid because it sits besides the bomb and waits when the bomb is going to blast if they did like bomber in clash royale and had a high HP it would be one of my favorite troop

4 Wizard

Why is wizard of here

Why is Wizard here? He is a good troop.

They do tons of damage, and with golems to distract the defenses, wizards might wreck the base.

Level 7 Wizards are good because they do a lot of damage and they do a area splash

5 Archer

They are the worst

The archer is weak

Great range but I personally don't really like them, in higher levels all they do is take out some outer buildings to help your secure the 50% win

I'm an archer. I get one shotted by falling rocks from a level 1 mortar.

6 Minion

Minions are good as masses but they have little health. And wished they did more damage.

I'm minion. I fly around and poop on defenses.

Your screwed if an air bomb hits them

I wish they had health the are poop

7 Dragon Dragon A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.

You all are just mad because you don’t know how to funnel. You after th7 and can't really spam them anymore

Are you kidding me? Dragons are the best! A lot of these troops are actually really good, you just have to use them the right way. But I do agree about Goblins definitely being the worst!

They suck, they just fly around the air defenses and let the air defenses take them out. I failed so many attacks with dragons and I never use them anymore

dragons use up so much elixir, you run out of elixir soon if you keep using them

Dragons are good if you place them right.

8 Bowler

Bowler is my favorite troop. They can destroy things over walls, and are great for war. They aren't the best for farming, though.

Whats wrong with you people bowlers and miner will three star a max th 10 easily and no a level 1 bowler does anlotnmore damage than a level 2 archer even a level 7 archer

I'm a fat blue dumbass and I need a wizard to create the rock out of thin air!

Less damage per unit space than a level 2 archer

9 P.E.K.K.A

Are you mad I think the creator need to go to the mental hospital...man he is seriously ill or mentally disturbed they are the best troops...(according to me )once I used them and caused huge damage to the enemy

Good, but it's expensive. Drags and wizards top it slightly.

Somebody (a TH9) used 1 PEKKA and a lot of Wall Breakers on my base (TH5) and won. - computerfan0

I like pekka but I wish they moved faster and did damage faster.

Always go for the wrong troop

They are not good

The Newcomers

? Ice Wizard Ice Wizard
? Night Witch Night Witch

Many complained the NW was OP. So Supercell did what they normally do. Since they seem to have no clue how to properly balance, but only talk about it, they went the other way and completely nerfed her. Now it is extremely difficult to win any versus battles with her. Thanks Whiners! You succeeded in screwing up another troop for the rest of us! Anything else you want to whine about?

The Contenders

11 Valkyrie

If you speak with "u" instead of you people won't take you seriously

You're all wrong that it was a great troop...

This Troop Sucks - 12cc

Who even uses these?

12 Barbarian

Level 1 is perfect.

They are actually useless except for barch or lure

Unlike clash royale,they are very easy to be killed by a archer tower

Barb level 6 r not bad

13 Balloon

They are very slow and easily kill by air defense.

They are so fragile and attacks so slow. Only good as a clan castle reinforcement. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Cool balloons and dragons

Balloons r sic when max

14 Giant

Good because they only attack defense s

Squish them and squash them and make them disappear.

These are pretty bad, but good with heal spells. - micahisthebest

Super slow and have a low fire rate

15 Hog Rider Hog Rider

At most levels, a giant bomb can only bring a hog rider to low health, if the hog rider is at full health before the explosion. A healing spell could heal hog riders to full health

Why is hog riders here, they can jump over walls but they are killed easily by giant bombs, so beware

They are the best they shouldn't be on this list

The Hog Rider said, "I'm going to attack this cannon while I get blown up by a giant bomb."

16 Witch

Witches suck. They can only send up dead troops that get killed easily.

Lol your a noob aren't ya? You didn't really know how to use a witch properly rofl

Too weak.It just make skeletons and the are also too weak,a witch will be killed by a giant bomb and it was very expensive.I bet it should be the second worst troop.

Even worse than goblins.Deal to their low health,attack strength is just so-so.Giant level 1 is already 300 health but already not high.600 health is a comparible level giant with a level 1 witch.Giant's health is twice as high as witch's but it witch housing space is more than twice of a giant. Witches are a complete useless! I'd rather use giants. their habits like lower attack,lower housing space,slower and high health makes them really durable with defences with spells and huge amount. Giant is 5x better the the witch.

17 Baby Dragon (Builder)

They only work effectively when they are alone. This sucks because you can't win with one troop only

18 Baby Dragon (Elixir)

Baby dragon is a good meat shield but it has terrible attack and its ability doesn't help that much. - Crabmccrab

19 Super P.E.K.K.A
20 Sneaky Archer

Not bad, if I'm being honest.

21 Golem

Golems suck bad golems

Strongest crystal

Golem is so cool!

22 Miner
23 Pumpkin Barbarian


24 Cannon Cart

She easy, move slow.

25 Beta Minion


26 Boxer Giant

Horrible. Slow, easy to kill, and of pretty much no use.
