Best Ways to Use Archers in Clash of Clans


Archer is the second unlockable elixir troop in Clash of Clans. Players can unlock archers right after reaching Townhall 2. She is a single-target ranged troop who attacks any nearby building or enemy units. As archers are available from the first day, players should know how to use archers in their battles. This guide will tell you the best ways to use archers in Clash of Clans.

How to Use Archers in Clash of Clans

With archers, the only problem is their low health. Players must be wary of splash damage defenses and traps when deploying archers. A single shot from most splash damage defenses is enough to kill archers. Because of this, players should always bring tanky troops to protect their archers.

In lower Townhall levels, archers see heavy usage, but players soon shift to other troops after making progress in the game. Let us look at the best ways to use archers in Clash of Clans:

1) Creating a funnel by sniping undefended buildings

Archers are one of the best troops for clearing vulnerable buildings. Players can drop a few archers on corner buildings at the start of the battle to gain some extra destruction percentages and create a funnel for their main army.

2) Barch Army

Barbarians and archers together are one of the best farming armies in Clash of Clans. Players can use the Barch army to wreck entire bases in lower Townhall levels. But above Townhall level 6-7, the Barch army is good enough for farming only. Players can use barbarians and archers to destroy resource collectors. This army can also use lightning spells for zapping collections located deep into the base.

3) Luring clan castle troops

Archers only take one housing space and, therefore, are expendable. Players can use archers to lure clan castle troops and kill them away from defenses. Lower Townhall players can deploy archers in a circular area to kill powerful splash-damage troops like dragons, baby dragons, etc.
