Wall Breaker Strategies

  • Using Wall Breakers to destroy walls helps improve your attack a lot since other troops will not get killed quickly as they don’t have to cluster to focus on walls
  • Wall Breakers will not destroy wall if they can’t see any buildings behind it (empty compartments).
  • Don’t bring too many Wall Breakers into the battle because that will eat your housing space badly. You just need couples of Wall Breakers to get into the core.
  • While doing raid, you can use other troops (Giants or Barbarians for example) to distract the enemy defensive buildings so your Wall Breakers will not get attacked while finishing their duty.
  • Sometimes, depending on your Town Hall level, you need 2 Wall Breakers to destroy walls. You can read more about this at Walls and Wall Breakers.
  • If there are still Wall Breakers after destroying walls, they will come to destroy inner walls.
  • Because they can do splash damage, sometimes you can use them to finish the low HP buildings located next to walls easily.
  • Most Clash of Clans ground attack strategies need Wall Breakers. They play a big part in this game!

  • Hussein Vincent DeBrodelle

    absolute crap, i dropped to 0 cups and used it back up, and lost! WTF

  • Austin-plays-clash-of-clans

    i used it in my lp’s and i lost 25 raids with this. This is a fake and crap guide, i even saw a guy with 4.3k cups in my clan use this strategy in bronze I and he got only 27% This is a dumb guide, no one can master it.

  • zebra

    this is one stupid guide, my little sister raids too much, she raided over 2k bases in the past 3 seasons, and she hasn’t won 1 attack once using this strategy. This is a scam!!!

  • adit

    i still find it difficult to adjust the deploying time and the movement speed.
    i often end up got my wall breakers hit by mortars.
    any suggestion?

    • Will Potter

      Observe carefully, drop your Wall Breakers once the Mortar Ball hits the ground so them wont be hit by the next one.
      Keep practicing and you will do it great.
      There is no trick or tip here. Just practice!

  • Luke

    Would wall breakers be effective in the clan castle as defense if they had a stronger cc unit tanking for them?

    • Rohit Victor

      The wallbreakers would simply drop the bomb on the attacking troop/s, killing itself and damaging the attacker, possibly killing it if it were a low HP troop.

    • Daniel M. Ramos

      There are actually some youtube videos out there where someone packed their CC with wall breakers. It was hilarious to watch. All they did was blow themselves up near the troops. They weren’t very effective. It is too bad they don’t keep their X40 damage when in the CC, that would be awesome.
