Clash of Clans Wall Breaker Summary

  • The Wall Breaker is the fifth overall troop unlocked in the Barracks.
  • The Wall Breaker’s appearance is that of a small skeleton that wears a brownish-orange aviator hat and has a small scar across its right eye socket. It carries a large bomb.
  • The Wall Breaker attacks by locating the nearest protected (read: wall enclosed) building and destroying its protective Walls by blowing itself up kamikaze style. It deals splash damage around its target and deals 40x damage to Walls.
  • Wall Breakers are kamikaze troops. When the bomb explodes, they will also be destroyed.
  • Wall Breakers prioritize Walls above all other targets, and will completely ignore any building or enemy troop while even a single segment of Walls exists on the battlefield.
    If all Wall segments are destroyed, Wall Breakers become like any other troop with no preferred target; they will attack the nearest building to them regardless of type, and will turn and attack enemy units if they become aware of any nearby.

Offensive Strategy

  • Wall Breakers destroy Walls faster than any other unit and make gaps for other units such as Giants to enter the opponent’s base.
  • Wall Breakers will look for the nearest building/turret that is trapped (fully or partially) by Walls and target any Wall that is trapping them. The exact mechanic can be found in the video below.
  • Wall Breakers cost a significant amount of Elixir and, due to their low health, spamming Wall Breakers result in many losses. To combat this, one or two Giants may be placed first to distract the nearby defensive structures. Wall Breakers can then be used to target Walls without being fired upon.
  • Giants and Wall Breakers make an excellent team: The Giants distract and in return the Wall Breakers destroy the wall. Then the Giants can move in successfully. All possible with teamwork.
  • Wall Breakers can be extremely effective if deploying 2 at a time very quickly, and do a straight line of 2 Wall Breakers each.
  • Once Wall Breakers have destroyed a protecting Wall(s), the remaining Wall Breakers will proceed to destroy the protecting inner Walls.
  • Wall Breakers have small amounts of health so use them wisely.
  • Before you deploy Wall Breakers, place a couple Barbarians to soak up hits so the Wall Breakers don’t die before they explode. It is helpful to place the Barbarians a short distance away from the target Wall so that splash damage from a Mortar or Wizard Tower won’t catch the Wall Breakers as well.
  • Wall Breakers do splash damage, so it can also be used to finish off buildings close to the Walls.

Defensive Strategy

  • Wall Breakers are no longer fooled by spiked or decoy Walls.
  • Wall Breakers won’t target a Wall unless it can see a building behind it.
  • Note that Wall Breakers will not target single Walls. There needs to be at least 3 connected Walls for a Wall Breaker to target it, and it must be protecting a building fully or partially.
  • Having double layers of Walls is ineffective vs. Wall Breakers, as Wall Breakers deal splash damage that will destroy both layers of Walls.
