4Strategy To Use With WallBreakers


Since Wall Breakers are expensive, you need to deploy them safely in order to make sure each one goes off and hits its target wall. In order to drop them safely, you both need to trigger initial traps as well as drop tanking units. The Giant makes for the ideal tanking unit. Drop 1-2 Giants and when the Cannons and Archer Towers start to focus on the Giants, drop your Wall Breakers. Make sure to time your Wall Breaker deployment in between Mortar shots so that the Wall Breakers do not get hit by Mortars.

War Armies:-

Wall Breakers are very useful for war armies in Clash of Clans if you are using ground troops (other than Hog Riders). You would use them in the same way you would with a farming army – to break down walls and access the center portion of the enemy’s base.You want to use the Wall Breakers earlier in the battle rather than later. Once you take out most of an enemy’s base, there are less towers up dealing less damage to your army, allowing them to more easily break down enemy walls.

Rage Spell:-

If you run into a very lucrative enemy base or are battling in a War and plan to use the Rage Spell (or multiple Rage spells), be sure to adjust your Wall Breaker usage. A Rage Spell will not only allow the Wall Breaker to get to a wall and blow up faster, but the damage boost also often means that a single Wall Breaker will be able to take down a target enemy wall. If you are planning on using a Rage Spell or two, you can take down most of an enemy’s walls with around just 10 Wall Breakers. 

WallBreakers And Giants:-

WallBreakers act as gateways for other troops to infiltrate the base of an enemy.

WallBreakers are costly and have very low health, so they must be used wisely. To counter this, place some Giants first to distract the nearby defense like canons and archer towers. This way WallBreakers get a small window to destroy the walls without being attacked by the defensive structures.

In short, using Giants alongside WallBreakers is a very good idea where one resists defense while the other makes a clear path to move forward. Then Giants can infiltrate and take out the defense but beware, mortars can take out several WallBreakers in a single shot.

6Defense With WallBreakers:-

Wall Breakers are among the most hated units to use in the Clan Castle. They do little damage to regular units, since their 40x bonus damage to walls only. Even though they deal splash damage when they explode, the damage is so light that it hardly matters. Most of the time the Wall Breaker will not even go off since it takes a full second for them to pop.

7Defense Against WallBreakers:-

• Layering walls is also not very effective against WallBreakers as they blast themselves and have a splash damage, this way a WallBreaker will destroy all the layers in its blast range.

• Also, it is not possible to fool WallBreakers with decoy walls, i.e. A WallBreaker will never target a single wall. There must be more than 2 walls connected for a WallBreaker to target it. Also, the walls must protect a building partially or fully.

• To increase the chances of killing the WallBreakers, always have some unimportant buildings outside the walls, so that the attacker has to place their WallBreakers farther than usual. (Unimportant building include – Builder huts, collectors, etc.)

Note: Use WallBreakers wisely as they can turn out to be the bane of your enemy! And always keep this in mind.

"Nothing warms a Wall Breaker's cold and undead heart like blowing up walls. A squad of them will make way for your ground units, and they will do it with a BANG!"
