Miner – New Clash of Clans Troop!

Okay guys so finally Supercell has revealed the next new Clash of Clans Troop in the upcoming May Update – The Miner! Let’s take a look and see what we got today about this new guy!


Clash of Clans – The Miner

The Miner easily burrows underground, bypasses beneath Walls and pops up right next to the target. Obviously, nothing can target him while he is digging underground. Every time after destroying a target, he burrows underground again and get to the next target. Because of this, he doesn’t trigger any trap while he is underground. He does trigger traps when he is on the ground, stands next to the target.

  • He is unlocked at Town Hall 10 and he is Elixir Troop. He takes 5 housing spaces and takes 5 minutes to train. He is also pretty cheap, just about 4200 Elixir.
  • There are 4 levels in total.
  • The Miner has no favorite target.
  • Miners are affected by Spells even when they are underground.

It seems like pretty cool do get your Super Queen inside and then use the Miners. They will become real monsters!

What do you think about the Miner in this new update guys? Please share your opinions!

  • Yofriadi Yahya

    Its more excited if it targets defensive building

    • Jeffrey Lam

      Then it would just be a copy of the hog rider.

      • Jayce429

        No, he’d be an OP copy of the hog rider.

        • Sean Eredia

          If its a miner, should it only target resources?

    • Will Potter

      Yea but it ‘s a good troop overall. i still very like it!

  • TheTruth

    The update seems to heavily favor TH 11. I think Supercell is pushing TH 10 to advance. Otherwise they will be crushed by the clone spell, miner etc

    • Will Potter

      They are trying to make TH10 balanced xD

  • Yet another reason to rush to TH9!

    • Will Potter


    • Will Potter

      This is so true! LOL

  • Pranjul Yaduvanshi

    now have enough elixir to unlock new spell nd troops

    • Will Potter

      Hope you will get this guy soon buddy!

  • Kabir Raj Singh

    Miner miner miner on the way……

  • Clash of R.A.V.E.N.

    Where can you train a miner, when it costs elixir and not de?

    • Will Potter

      He is in the normal barrack buddy!

  • Ace 22

    SC will overdo it in this update

  • MahmudKamal

    although iam a th9, i thought it should be a really terrifiying if combined with tankers such giant and golem

    • Will Potter

      Yea! Gonna try to use some strategies with this new guy :D.

  • Hadipurnama Ktp88

    All the update will be awesome, wondering when the update will come true lol. I am th 9 with almost max defense, lv 9 wall, i want to join in a good war clan, cause my clan now just dying hiks, 44 member, but only 7 active player

    • Ace 22

      You’re welcome to join our clan, its level8 and we do a war search 24hrs after a war ends.

      • Hadipurnama Ktp88

        Thanks bro, what is the name of your clan

        • Ace 22

          Blique is the name, code: #8QPLYY8G

    • Will Potter

      The update is just released now :D.

  • Vihag

    maybe it could be of dark elixer too,no one knows when supercell will change their minds

  • Ace 22

    They should release a dark troop that targets resource buildings as well

    • Oupal

      we have minion for farm and he is enough in my opinion.

      • Ace 22

        It would be fun to have another, like in the case of dragon and baby dragon

  • Daniel M. Ramos

    Yawn! I am sure it has its uses, but it seems to duplicate many of the abilities already offered by hog riders. I suppose this is meant to be the hog rider for th 10 and 11, since the use of hog riders against th 10 and 11 bases is pretty much non existent. One thing this troop does do is almost completely negate the power of long range defenses such as x bows and archer towers. The x bow and archer towers are only effective because they can keep peppering attacking troops as they close in. The miner’s underground immunity makes such defenses almost useless.

  • Sunrit Roy Karmakar

    supercell forgot about us low level guys. we at th8 have no way to keep our resources safe anymore. people will just come and raid us like it’s their father’s base. this makes our defences weak and invalid. i suggest release a defence to counter this troop too. and that too at th8 and th7 , not at th11 -_-

    • Khamis Salem

      Th9 gets smashed easily by th10 and 11 and you are speeking about th8 lol

  • 1hentho

    Can anyone answer, what the point of spring trap level 3-5 are? The idea of the levels are to increase how many troops it flings when troops travel in Packs (Mass giant, Mass valk etc). So they have the following traits:
    Lvl 1: 1 valk or 3 giants
    Lvl 2 2 valks or 3 giants
    Lvl 3: 2 valks or 3 giants
    Lvl 4: 2 valks or 3 giants
    Lvl 5: 2 valks or 3 giants

    And I dont think any other troop travel in large enough packs to all be together on one spot? Other than maybe bowlers, but then lvl5 is still a pointless upgrade?

    • Oupal

      Level 1: 3 wizard
      Level 2: 4 wizard.
      Not really necessary to upgrade it to level 4 actually until the 10 (from 2 to 3 bowler)

  • Dayle King

    I’m a serious ROOKIE when it comes to COC! I’m winging it with every step I take. Is there anyone who can put COC into REALLY SIMPLE TERMS for me?

    • Will Potter


    • Tony Ingram

      Try our clan dayle, Brit alliance 3 we war 2 times a week with all level players who are happy to help, are British based with some international players

  • KingOfGames

    What troops from Clash Royale do you want to see in COC? In my opinion, I want to see Giant Skeleton as a DE troop.

    • Will Potter

      I want to see the Miner LMAO
