Advanced Hog Riders Attack Strategy

With Mass Hog Riders Attack Strategy, you can 3 stars almost base under Town Hall 10 easily. You can use this strategy for both farming or Clan Wars. I really love this one because it is one of the laziest Clash of Clans strategies.

Advanced Hog Riders Attack Strategy

Who should use Hog Riders Attack Strategy?

Hog Rider is one of the most powerful and useful troop in Clash of Clans. All Town Hall 8, 9 and 10 villages which have at lease level 4 Hog Rider can use this strategy. If your Hogs are level 3 or below, don’t use this strategy because they are pretty like piglets and it will be a prodigality. Read the Dark Elixir Farming Tips if you think it’s hard to find DE.

Hog Riders Attack Strategy Troop Combination

  • Troops: Heroes, 5 Barbarians, 10 Archers and the rest is Hog Riders.
  • Spells: 1 Lightning Spell and 3 Healing Spells.
  • Clan troops: Wizards.

Barbarians and the Wizards in your Clan Castle will help you remove the Heroes and outside buildings quickly. Lighting Spell for dealing with the Clan troops.

HP is a weakness of Hog Riders. Your Hog Riders will be killed very fast with double Giant Bombs and without your Healing Spells. Never bring Rage Spells while attacking with Hogs because Hogs never stay in a place for a long time.

Attack with Hog Riders Strategy

As I said in the header of this guide, this strategy is quite simple. Just follow these steps, they are very easy to do:

  1. Always lure the Clan troops if you can with your Barbarians.
    If there are Barbarians, Archers and Wizards, say bye with them by using Lightning Spell.If there is a Dragon, lure it out then use your Barbarians as the meat shield and drop your Wizards to attack the Dragon.
  2. Drop all your Hog Riders in two separate lines and around a lot of defense buildings, like this:
    Hog Riders Attack Strategy
  3. Focus on the raid, when your Hogs’ HP are turned to yellow, drop your Healing Spells.
  4. Drop your Heroes and Clan Castle If you still have them on the side where you start attacking.
  5. 3 Stars!

This video gives you some pretty cool examples for this strategy:

I hope with this Hog Riders strategy, you can bring a lot of stars to your Clan!

    my friend th8 hog can 3 starred early th9 war base. he didn’t drop hogs in two spot together, but he specifically drop 3-4 hogs on the each defensive tower. this will reduce the posibility of hogs killed by giant bombs.

    • Will Potter

      Hi Hery,
      Yeah, that is Surgical Hog Strategy. I mentioned it in this guide: http://cocland.com/strategies/ultimate-guide-to-hog-rider-attack-at-th8

      But If he can attack a Town Hall 9 as a TH8, that’s pretty impressive!

      • Hery

        as far as i know, between my friends, he was the one that can analyze many kind of bases, and come up with correct attack strategy to achieve 3 stars.

        thanks anyway for the surgical hog strategy link, i will take a look on it.

  • Wendell Lanphear

    i love mass hog raids. my main goal when i get to th8 is to get level 4 hogs

    • Will Potter

      Yea! We all love Hogs! xD

  • Meh Inc.

    I have a hard time deciding to use GoHo (I would like to try it, read some guides but never done it yet) and mass hogs. I also would like to know if it’s possible to heal hogs when dgb occurs. I recently started hogs and done pretty well. I’m saving dark elixir to upgrade them. I have a war but I don’t know how to deal with a TH 8 base semi-max with 90% archer towers/cannons on first layer, including some wiz tower and mortars but core is huge and very open with air defenses, TH, castle, and some other stuff. There are like 500 places for a double giant bomb in the core. Help?

    • Will Potter

      You can’t heal them If they trigger 2 Giant Bombs at a time, also, level 2 Hogs are very weak. You should use GoWiPe or Mass-Golem IMO.

      • Meh Inc.

        Thanks! I do use gowipe and doesn’t turn out bad. 2 starred a TH 10 with lvl 9 walls with it! And my pekkas suck ๐Ÿ˜› He didn’t have castle troops. ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Meh Inc.

          I’m a new TH 8 so yea. ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Will Potter

          That’s awesome man :D.

    Th7 hogs! strategy
    27 hogs, 5 barbs, 13 wiz and 10 archers 3 heal
    cc-wiz or hogs
    lure cc and take it out by using barbs (to distract tough troops like dragons) and wizards and your archers. then use a hog at a gap where a giant bomb could be, and arm it off and deploy your hogs surgical (around 1 side of base)
    get 3 star and earn war stars

  • Swaroop COC techniques

    why are th7 hogs lvl 1 or 2 considered weak??
    Th7 hogs are really epic and have enough strength to defeat th7 and th8 (maybe not hogs lvl 1 but hog riders lvl 2+ have good strength)
