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

Goblin Knife and GiGoBarch is good though still

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...

2 Lava Hound

This is way too high. They may not do much damage, but they take it so that other flying troops can do damage.

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"

3 Wall Breaker

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

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

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

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

They are just flying archers, yet take 2 housing spots? While they do have the nieche ability of being undetectable by seeking air mines, this is ultimently a hinderence because they make good sacrafices to save a troop like a balloon.

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

7 Dragon Dragon


1. Slow
2. Expensive
3. Really long train time
4. 20 housing space
5. Damage isn’t so great
6. Low level ADs can melt them
7. Dumbest troop (Targeting is broke)

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!

8 Healer

Healer be like ima gonna heal every single other troop except myself

There good for queen walk that's about it really

Always go for the wrong troop

They are not good

9 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

10 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.

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.

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

Barb level 6 r not bad

They are actually useless except for barch or lure

V 3 Comments
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

In groups they are good, but they have very low hitpoints. - micahisthebest

14 Giant

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

Good because they only attack defense s

Squish them and squash them and make them disappear.

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.

Lol don't worry noobs are here for tips lol because theyve been olaying for over a year but they still didn't progress just like your baking a cake for months and still haven't baked.Witches needed meat shields but looks like you needed tips roflmao

17 Miner
18 Baby Dragon (Builder)

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

19 Baby Dragon (Elixir)

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

20 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?

21 Ice Wizard Ice Wizard

Limited time but when I used them? Absolutely garbage.

22 Super P.E.K.K.A
23 Sneaky Archer

Not bad, if I'm being honest.

24 Ice Golem
25 Golem

Golem is so cool!

Golems suck bad golems

Strongest crystal

26 Pumpkin Barbarian


27 Cannon Cart

She easy, move slow.

28 Beta Minion


29 Boxer Giant

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