  • Summary
    • The Giant is the third troop unlocked in the Barracks.
    • The Giant’s first target is defenses, making them an ideal troop to deploy to get rid of defenses fast. However, due to their low attack damage they are better used in large groups.

  • Offensive Strategy
    • Giants have a lot of health but are slow and have low attack power, so use them in groups. however, giants are weak against many powerful defenses grouped together. You can use Giants as a cheap meat shield while deploying other, higher damaging troops to destroy buildings and defenses, resulting in a good synergy used for lower THs. In general, giants make better distracting troops than Barbarians due to their much higher health. Because of this they are less vulnerable to Mortar fire and other splash damage, and are much harder to kill.
    • At the beginning of a Raid, send in several Giants closest to the Mortar(s)/Wizard Tower(s). As soon as the Mortar hits the Giants, send in the Wall Breakers to break through the walls. Once the Mortar(s) and Wizard Tower(s) are attacking the giants, you can send in swarms of lower hit point Troops such as Goblins and Archers depending on your preference. But if you are able, you can send a group of Wizards instead, as they are even better. Another variation is to send many Giants with three or four Healers. Be wary of Air Defenses primarily however, as Healers are very weak to them. To counter this it is recommended to bring support(DPS) troops as well, like a Wizard to destroy them. These strategies are helpful for Town Hall 3-6, especially in wars.
    • Giants ignore defensive troops and heroes(Clan Castle Troops, skeletons from Skeleton TrapsBarbarian King and Archer Queen) as long as there is still a visible Defensive Building on the base. Be sure to eliminate defensive troops ASAP to protect Giants.
    • Giants are inferior tanks compared to P.E.K.K.As, Golems and Ice Golems. Their advantage is that they have less housing space, meaning you can fit more in your camps. Once you reach town hall 8, Giants lose their ability as a main tank due to said competition and stronger splash(2 Levels to Wizard Towers compared to one level for Giants and addition of the Bomb Tower). Instead, they become utility tanks, where you can place one or two down to tank for a few seconds for something more important, such as a Wizard, Hog, or even a Siege Barracks. Mastering this can improve your attack.
      • One use of this that is important for early levels and can easily be used in later levels is if you are uncertain about making sure you can wall break the troops you want in, send in one giant first and then the necessary wallbreakers. The giant will tank for enough time for the wall breakers to break the wall, and then you can send the other troops in. As long as you can place the giant right, it is very reliable.

  • Defensive Strategy
    • Giants can be especially susceptible to Sablon:Hs due to the predictable nature of their AI, and the fact that it can destroy 3 Giants at a time because a level 4 spring trap can kill 16 housing space and Giants only take up 5. Use this to your advantage and place strategic gaps in your Sablon:H with defensive structures behind them, and fill the gaps with one or more Sablon:Hs.
    • Giants are somewhat good defensive Clan Castle Troops, as their high health means that multiple offensive units will have to be dispatched to deal with them (a Lightning Spell will not be sufficient). They will also take a relatively long time to kill, delaying the enemy attack. However, the problem with using giants as Clan Castle Troops is that when they come out to defend, they take up five spaces. This means that if the enemy has enough troops to one hit a giant, it will be more efficient to use five Barbarians, as the enemy troops will have to reload. As such, it will take five times as long.
      • However, compared to better choices, such as a Baby Dragon,Ice Golem,Headhunter, or Valkyrie, you should try not to use them if you have access to these.
    • A Wizard Tower surrounded by a layer of walls can severely cut down the HP of a group of giants, without the help of a heal spell. In between the wall and the wizard tower, place a Mortar to help attack the supporting troops and also tank the giants a little longer once they break through the walls.
    • Giant Bombs can Heavily Cut down the HP of Giants. It is even more effective because they can also one-shot support troops like the Wizard no matter the amount of healing.

  • Upgrade Differences
    • The Giant undergoes significant visual changes at levels 3, 6, and 9.
      • Initially, the Giant has a brown tunic with a red belt and copper buckle around his waist. He otherwise has no accessories.
      • At level 3, the Giant gains iron cuffs around his arms and iron knuckles on his hands.
      • At level 5, the Giant exchanges the Iron cuffs and knuckles for golden - brass colored ones.
      • At level 6, the Giant upgrades his cuffs and knuckles to a black metal. He also grows a long, thick red beard and dons a black feather cape.
      • At level 7, the Giant acquires a golden chestplate underneath its brown tunic that reaches to its shoulders.
      • At level 8, the Giant acquires golden spikes on both his cuffs and his knuckles.
      • At level 9, the Giant acquires brown-colored armor plating on his shoulders. His cuffs are removed, and his knuckles have studs on it rather than spikes.

  • Trivia
    • Sablon:MaximumTroopCount
    • Of of the 3 troops that occupy 5 housing space (Giant, Balloon, and Hog Rider). All 3 of them target defenses. Out of the 3, Giant has the highest health, second-highest attack speed, second-best movement speed, the cheapest out of the 3, and has 1 additional level. Hog Rider has the best movement speed, attack speed, and damage per second while Balloon has the highest damage per hit, along with the fact that the Balloon flies.
    • The Giant's low damage is visually seen by the attacks with their bare fists.
    • The Giant's main Barracks image changed substantially as part of the "Witch" update (29 July 2013). However, this change did not affect the look of the in-game unit; when viewed in Sablon:Hs or in battle, the Giant still has the same look as it did prior to the update.
    • When the Giant attacks a building, a puff of smoke rises from the target.
    • The Giant is one of four troops in the Home Village that can be upgraded to level 9. The others are the Wizard, Hog Rider, and Golem.
    • Since the 2014 Winter Update, the Giant is unlocked at Barracks level 3 instead of level 4. In addition, this update reduced the cost to train Giants of levels 1-5 by 250 elixir.
    • Of all the Elixir troops, it is the one that deals the least DPS per housing space, with only 11.4 DPS per housing space at max level.
    • On 11/8/17, low-level Giants could be seen working on buildings as temporary builders, having replaced the Barbarians which in turn replaced the Builders at their job following the latter's departure. In addition to this, when a Builder's Hut was destroyed in battle, a defensive level 1 Giant came out. A week later, on 18th August 2017, the Giants' role as the Builders was taken over by the Witches.
    • The giant is the first unlocked elixir troop that targets defenses.
