Clash of Clans Canon are the first defensive base building you can build. At lower levels they are cheap and quick to upgrade.

Canons can only target one enemy at a time and deal moderate damage compared to other defensive base buildings.

  • Can only target ground troops.
  • Strong against Giants and Barbarians.
  • With additional upgrades. Canons are helpful against Heroes.

Gearing Up Cannons

  • At level 7, if you have a Master Builder and one Double Cannon in the Builder Base at level 4 or higher. The Master Builder can gear up a Cannon to make it resemble a Double Cannon.
  • The upgrade doubles the damage a cannon can inflict but reduces its range from 9 to 7 tiles.
  • You can only gear up one Cannon.

Defensive Strategy

  • Cannons have a high rate of fire which makes them an ideal deterrent for Wall Breakers (which have very low hitpoints)
  • Since Cannons can not target air units. They should have overlapping Air Defenses to keep them safe.
  • Cannons struggle against swarms of troops. Since they can only target one at a time and inflict no splash damage.

Offensive Strategy

  • When attacking Cannons check if they have air defenses nearby. If they do not. Then you can easily wipe them out with Balloons, Dragons, or Minions without taking any damage.
  • Cannons are only able to damage one unit at a time. This makes it very easy to overwhelm them with large groups of Archers or Barbarians.
