Bowler Summary

  • The Bowler is a troop which throws a large boulder that bounces; dealing splash damage on the initial bounce and dealing splash damage again when it lands.
  • The Bowler is the first ground troop unlocked that can damage multiple targets in a straight line.
  • The Bowler’s boulder will only roll far enough to hit two targets.
  • Bowlers have no preferred target when attacking; they will simply attack the closest building. However, once they become aware of enemy Clan Castle troops, Heroes, or Skeleton Trap skeletons (either by being attacked themselves or by being near another friendly troop under attack), they will leave their previously targeted building and instead engage the enemy troops. Once all of the nearby enemy troops are defeated, the Bowlers will proceed to attack the nearest structure.

"This big blue dude digs the simple things in life - Dark Elixir drinks and throwing rocks. His massive boulders bounce off their targets and hit again behind it for double strike!"

Offensive Strategy

  • The Bowler doesn’t have a lot of hitpoints so it can be taken out when not protected, so be sure it is behind tanks like Golems or Giants.
  • The Bowler can be a great unit for funneling due to their ability to be able to hit 2 structures at any given time. This allows better funneling compared to using Wizards.

Defensive Strategy

  • The Bowler has splash damage similar to the Wizard. But unlike the Wizard, the Bowler can reach deeper through the opponent’s Troops allowing the Bowlers to take out damaging units such as Wizards, Witches and the Heroes.
