Archer Queen info

"Towering above all other archers, this graceful huntress is a master of destructive force, Alhough her health is modest, she snipes targets from afar with her powerful X-bow. As a defender she guards the village with a vengeance."


  • The Archer Queen is essentially a more powerful version of the Archer. She is the second Hero, being unlocked at Town Hall 9. In addition to possessing much higher damage and hitpoints, the Archer Queen also shoots 1.5 tiles farther than a normal Archer (5 tiles instead of 3.5 tiles).
  • The Archer Queen shoots 3 rapid arrows per shot. However, these arrows deal damage to a single target.
  • She is automatically summoned once the Archer Queen Altar is constructed, which costs 10,000 Dark Elixir.
  • The Archer Queen is an immortal unit, so she only has to be summoned once. However, if she is injured or gets defeated in an attack, she must regenerate her health by sleeping for a period of time before she can be used again.
  • The Archer Queen will defend the village whenever she's not regenerating health from a previous attack. The Archer Queen only defends her territory around her altar and will retreat if lured too far out. If the village is attacked while she is regenerating health or being upgraded, her altar will be empty.
  • Hero regeneration in the Home Village uses an "extra life" system: when fully regenerated, the Archer Queen has two "life bars", each with health equal to her maximum hitpoints. The first life bar is represented by the bar visible next to the Queen's level, with the second (the "extra life") represented by a heart placed at the end of the first life bar, with a "+1" when it is full.
    • Any damage taken by the Archer Queen when attacking is first subtracted from the extra life bar, with the regular life bar only being reduced when the extra life bar is fully depleted. If the Archer Queen is defeated, a full life bar will be depleted; in particular, if the extra life bar is full when this occurs, it will be completely depleted without affecting the regular life bar. If the Archer Queen is damaged or defeated when defending, the life bars will be completely unaffected.
    • Both the regular life bar and the extra life regenerate at the same rate, with the regular life bar regenerating fully before the extra life bar regenerates. The regeneration time listed in-game is the time taken for one of the two life bars to regenerate, meaning the time taken to regenerate both life bars after both have been emptied is twice the regeneration time.
    • For the Queen to participate in battle, the regular life bar must be full. If the regular life bar is not full after a battle, the Archer Queen will have to sleep for a period to regenerate the regular life bar before she can be used for battle, proportional to the amount of missing health on the regular life bar.
    • Hero regeneration after a Multiplayer Battle starts as soon as the player begins to search for a Multiplayer opponent. So, if the player spent some time searching for an opponent to attack before completing an attack, part of the regeneration will be completed by the time the player returns to their village. However, if the player cancels the attack by pressing "End Battle" before completing an attack, the regeneration will be reset. This effect is more noticeable in the highest leagues below legend where a significant amount of time can be spent searching for such opponents.
  • You can temporarily quadruple the Queen's healing rate for 1 hour by spending 5 Gems, or by using a Training Potion.
  • As a Hero, the Archer Queen has an ability that can be used once per battle. The base ability allows her to regenerate some of her health, while Hero Equipment that she wields may add additional effects to this ability. When unlocked, she starts with the Archer Puppet and Invisibility Vial. At every fifth level, the health regeneration that the Archer Queen gains from using her ability increases.
    • The Archer Puppet allows the Archer Queen to summon a large number of Archers, which match the level of the player's own Archers.
    • The Invisibility Vial turns the Archer Queen invisible and gives her significantly increased damage for the duration.
      • In addition to her default equipment, you can choose between Hero Equipments at the Blacksmith, allowing you to mix and match her abilities.
      • The Giant Arrow launches an arrow that travels the whole village, dealing damage on the way.
      • The Healer Puppet summons Healers, with the number of Healers is dependent on the level of this Equipment.
      • The Frozen Arrow causes her attacks to slow down Defenses, defending Heroes and Clan Castle troops.
  • Unlike the Barbarian King, the Archer Queen can attack air units like Balloons, Dragons, or Minions, making her effective in guarding a village against players who conduct air raids.


Offensive Strategy

  • The four Home Village heroes serve different roles in raids. The Archer Queen is the damage specialist hero, while the Barbarian King is the tank specialist, the Grand Warden is the support specialist and the Royal Champion is the defense specialist. Deploy her behind the Barbarian King as he tanks the damage while the Archer Queen does the damage.
  • She has a better range than an Archer (5 tiles instead of 3.5), so a good strategy is to place a group of Giants, P.E.K.K.As, Golems, or the Barbarian King as a meat shield, then a group of Archers, and finally the Archer Queen. That minimizes the chance of her being defeated or even hit and may allow you to use her many times in a row without waiting for her to regenerate.
  • You can use an Archer Queen with a Invisibility Vial in raids to help you clean up buildings for 50%. As damage approaches 50%, simply deploy your Archer Queen and use the ability immediately so that she can destroy a few extra buildings, not taking damage at all by not being targetable, However, she can still be dealt damage from the Archers spawned with the Archer Puppet, so bear that in mind when using this.
  • The Archer Queen and Healer combination, better known as Queen Walk, is a very viable strategy when you're targeting for loot. She can clear large areas of the base, creating an effective funnel. This, however, requires a high-level Queen due to the fact that the Queen alone cannot deal enough damage and will eventually run out of time. Air Defenses bombing the Healers can easily destroy this, but this does not happen very often since the Archer Queen's range and the Healer's range allow the Healers to stay out of most Air Defenses' range.
    • A related version of the Queen Walk is the Queen Charge, where instead of being used for funneling, the Queen and Healers target the core of the base, destroying key defenses. This usually involves the use of Wall Breakers, their super form, or Jump Spells in addition to other funneling troops (such as Baby Dragons) to ensure she enters the base, and then using her abilities to wipe defenses.
    • A similar version of the Queen Walk that can be utilized is with Druids instead of Healers. Unlike Healers, Druids do not have a reduced healing rate when healing Heroes, making them slightly more effective. In addition, their healing bounces from one troop or Hero to another, thereby giving you the ability to add supporting troops in a Queen Walk. The downside to using Druids instead of Healers is that they will only remain in their base form for 30 seconds before transforming into their Bear form. Once they have turned into a Bear, they can no longer heal the Queen/troops and instead target defenses.
    • For a Queen Walk, Rage Spells can be used to boost both the Archer Queen and the Healers/Druids if needed. When boosted by Rage Spells, the Healers/Druids will heal faster, allowing them to heal the Queen quickly if she should take lots of damage. Freeze Spells are also handy to have to stop high-damage defenses like the single-target Inferno Tower, while the Overgrowth Spell can divert the Queen and prevent her from taking damage.
    • Seeking Air Mines can also destroy this. Periodically place some Balloons near the Healers to try and soak them up. These Balloons are often called "coco loons". Try to bring about 3 or 4. Any extra ones may also be used like normal Balloons.
    • The Unicorn can be used in place of a Healer or Druid, However, in a lot of strategies, you see them both used at the same time for maxinum healing to the Archer Queen, which increases her survivability.
  • The Royal Cloak Ability prevents defenses from targeting the Archer Queen, but she can be affected by splash damage; for instance, if the nearby Archers summoned by the Archer Queen via her Royal Cloak are targeted by a Mortar or a Scattershot, the splash projectile of the Mortar and the Scattershot will damage the Archer Queen if she is in range, regardless of whether her ability is active or not. Royal Cloak does not prevent the Archer Queen from triggering Bombs and Giant Bombs and she will still be damaged by them if she is in range when they explode.
    • The Royal Cloak is excellent against single-target Inferno Towers. When used, the Inferno Tower's damage will not only reset, but is often redirected onto a summoned Archer. The queen can quickly finish off the Inferno with her damage under the cloak, while the Archers can provide great cover and overwhelm the Inferno if it is not defended well by splash defenses (or other multi-targeting Infernos).
    • The Royal Cloak ability will also not prevent any projectiles (such as Cannon shots) that are targeting the Archer Queen at the time of the ability's activation from hitting her. If the Eagle Artillery has already locked on and fired on the Queen, activating the Royal Cloak will not prevent the shots from hitting, which will result in great damage against your Queen. Activating the Cloak just before it fires will stop the Eagle Artillery from firing on your Archer Queen, however, and render the Queen temporarily untargetable by the Eagle Artillery as normal.
  • The Archer Queen is not affected by the Spring Trap, like all other heroes, so you can use her to activate them.
  • A good idea is to put the Archer Queen with the other heroes. The Barbarian King soaks up hits, the Archer Queen attacks from behind, the Grand Warden supports them with his Life Aura, and the Royal Champion destroys defenses. If there are troops in the Clan Castle, they also get benefits from the Grand Warden and they can assist the other heroes in terms of defending and stalling. This is also called a hero dive, where you push a certain amount of your heroes into the base a little. This can help with funneling, take out major defense or just percentage in general.
    • Sending the Archer Queen and any other heroes like this with little support (up to about 25 housing space of troops) is known as a Sui Queen. This is best used to destroy outer portions of the base and a few key targets farther in.
  • Beware of the Barbarian King, as he can kill the Archer Queen in a 1v1 if they are at the same level or if the Archer Queen is only 5 levels or lower than the King. If you are going to 1v1 the Barbarian King, place healers to support the Queen or place Wizards or any other high-damaging troop to quickly defeat the King. Headhunters, if you have access, is also good when going against the king.
  • The Royal Cloak ability's mechanism will cause her to be considered as a new target different from the original Archer Queen. Against a defending Electro Dragon, this ability may backfire, as it may cause her to take two hits from the Electro Dragon's Chain Lightning ability.
  • If you do not need to use her ability during battle, you do not always need to. If the battle ends and she does not use her ability, after battle she will recover health equal to the ability recovery.
  • By far and away the most common Pet to pair with the Archer Queen is the Unicorn, as it enables her to be healed over time, greatly increasing her survivability. The Phoenix, when unlocked, can substitute for the Unicorn if the latter is being upgraded, being able to extend the lifetime of the Queen and allowing her to do extra damage before she goes down.
    • The Phoenix can also revive the Archer Queen if she happens to be defeated while under her ability. The subsequent revival allows the Queen to use most of, if not the full duration of her extremely damaging ability.
  • The Archer Queen benefits from having higher-level equipment, so leveling up your equipment will help the Queen Greatly.
  • A good Hero Equipment combination for the Archer Queen includes the Frozen Arrow and Invisibility Vial, as this reduces her incoming damage by slowing down defenses, and making her invisible allows her to deal more damage. However, if you are using a pet, the Pet will not turn invisible, forcing the pet to die early, which can leave the Queen without support.
    • Other good combos include the Frozen Arrow and Healer Puppet, which allows her more healers for extra Health recovery, The Invisibility Vial and Healer Puppet for Guaranteed healing, and the Giant Arrow and Invisibility Vial for ZapQuake Attacks are all good combinations to a certain extent.

Defensive Strategy

  • The Archer Queen is more suitable for defense than the Barbarian King because of her faster attacks and harder hits, and she is able to attack from a longer range (as well as being able to strike air units), but she has dramatically lower health than the Barbarian King. The Queen's altar must be placed 3-4 spaces from the nearest wall to prevent the Queen from jumping out and getting targeted by melee troops.
  • Protect your key defenses by keeping them more than 5 tiles away from the nearest open space, so the queen cannot snipe them.
  • Keep your Eagle Artillery away from the Queen's altar so that the opponent cannot destroy both with Electrone or Blizzard.

Against an Archer Queen

  • The best strategy against an Archer Queen is often another Archer Queen. A Queen Walk or an Archer Queen behind a tank troop can take down an enemy Queen quickly, especially if her Royal Cloak ability is activated.
  • Tanking troops can be of some use, but they will not last long against an Archer Queen. For example, a maxed Golem will last only 10-11 seconds against a max-level Archer Queen, not accounting for any other defenses that may be targeting it.
    • If you are using a similar level, using the Barbarian King as a tank and the enemy Archer Queen is not hiding behind a wall, then the Barbarian King himself will be sufficient to defeat the Queen unless nearby defenses or the defending Clan Castle troops or Barbarian King are also attacking him. Activating the King's ability will allow him to defeat the Queen quicker.
  • If the Archer Queen is near the edge of the base, you can use a Barbarian King to take it out. You might need to use the King's Ability if your king is low leveled.
  • Consider bringing a spell or spells to make the takedown process easier, such as a Poison Spell to slow the Queen's attacks, a Skeleton Spell to distract her, or a Freeze Spell to keep her from killing your troops too quickly.
  • The Grand Warden's Eternal Tome ability can keep troops alive while they destroy an Archer Queen. Because the Queen's health is so low, the short duration of the Eternal Tome ability is rarely a problem.
  • You can kill the defending Archer Queen with high leveled Lightning Spells if she is low leveled. However, this isn't a recommended strategy because you cannot easily guarantee that she will die if you bring too little.
    • Even against higher-level Archer Queens, the strategy can still be useful if you're bringing enough Lightning Spells to destroy other key buildings alongside taking her out (such as the Eagle Artillery).
  • Like with the Barbarian King or the Royal Champion, Headhunters are effective at targeting and attacking the Archer Queen, and they are used in small numbers in most high-level strategies such as Lavaloon where the other troops cannot target or damage her effectively. However, if Headhunters are sent in alone, they'll likely be picked off and killed easily by the Queen or nearby defenses. As such, they are best sneaked in, covered by other attacking troops or by the Grand Warden's ability.

Hero Skins

Skin Availability

Below is a table that lists all Hero skins for the Archer Queen and the month in which they were available, in chronological order. Skins are divided into three classes:

  • Gold denotes a skin that was featured as a Gold Pass skin in Season Challenges.
    • All Hero Skins from the Gold Pass since April 2023 have been available as the first reward on the Gold track.
    • Prior to this, they have all been the last reward on the Gold track unless specified.

2 Indicates animations for these skins were not different from the original 3D Archer Queen model prior to its replacement on December 12, 2022.


  • If you tap on the Archer Queen, she will yell a high pitched battle cry and stand still for a moment, similar to the Barbarian King. Her default skin will wave a hand towards the player.
    • If she is wearing her Gladiator or Champion skin, she will instead bow down towards the player.
    • If she is in her Valkyrie Queen skin, she will raise her modified X-Bow and stand tall.
    • The Autumn Queen skin will spin counter-clockwise, with a bow in hand.
    • If she is wearing the Ice Queen skin, she will pull her hand up to her face.
    • If she is wearing the Warrior Queen skin, she will bow down to the user.
    • If she is wearing the Primal Queen skin, she will put her hand on her costume and look up.
    • If she is wearing the Clockwork Queen skin, she will load and fire her crossbow.
    • If she is wearing the Pirate Queen skin, she will be waving at the player.
    • If she is wearing the Rogue Queen skin, she will wave toward the player in a very similar way to the original skin.
    • If she is wearing the Jungle Queen skin, she will bow down to the left side.
    • If she is wearing the Party Queen skin, she will clench her right fist and lift it to the player.
    • All Archer Queen skins are left handed.
  • Some of the Archer Queen skins have some unique features that other skins from the Archer Queen don't have.
    • The Warrior Queen skin has unique pink colored particles after she is deployed.
    • The Ice Queen skin has unique ice-like particles when you activate her ability.
    • When you tap the Archer Queen while she is wearing her Clockwork skin, she fires a single arrow. However, while attacking in battles she fires three.
    • Before skins and 3D models were added, the Archer Queen used to have recoil when she attacked. A clip of this can be seen here.
  • Before the Archer Queen's texture was converted into a 3D model, she had visual changes at levels 10, 20, and 41.
    • Initially, the Archer Queen is similar to a giant Archer, but with a modified X-Bow, a silver crown, purple hair, and a green dress.
    • At level 10, her crown became golden.
    • At level 20, the stock of her modified X-Bow became golden as well. Her shots used to change from Elixir-colored to gold.
    • At level 41, her cloak received a golden rim, and her golden modified X-Bow stock became a darker gold color or gained a purple glow outline.

  • If the Archer Queen attacks while her Royal Cloak ability is active, her arrows change from their normal Elixir-like color to bright orange.
  • When she is injured or falls in battle, a small explosion occurs, she yells in pain, and a red beam shoots to the sky. After that, like all other heroes, the Archer Queen stands still and a "dizzy" animation is engaged.
  • Sometimes the Archer Queen attacks a wall but then may seemingly retarget and attack another wall; this is most often caused by her retargeting to a different target (usually because her previous target was destroyed).
  • While attacking, if your opponent's Archer Queen Altar is empty and the Archer Queen wakes up during the battle, the Altar will have a short sparkling animation but the Archer Queen will not appear to defend the base.
  • If your Archer Queen wakes up while you are in Village Edit Mode, a sparkle will appear wherever in the Altar's original location (even if you moved it already).
  • A maximum level Electro Dragon under a maximum-level Rage Spell can one-shot a level 1-78 Archer Queen, but a level 79 or 80 Archer Queen survives.
    • A level 79 Archer Queen survives with exactly 2 hitpoints left.
  • Each successive upgrade of the Archer Queen adds approximately 2.1% health and 2.5% damage, but every five levels add a constant two minutes to her total regeneration time. As a consequence, the Archer Queen's regeneration rate changes as she levels up.
  • AQRegenChart

    Regeneration rate for each level; click to enlarge

    The Archer Queen's regeneration rate fluctuates each level, with drops in the regeneration rate every fifth level and small increases for every other level. From an initial regeneration rate of 72.5 HP per minute at level 1, it reaches a maximum of 77.1 HP per minute at level 4 and shows a downward trend up to level 25, where there is a minimum of 59.65 HP per minute. Beyond level 25, the drops at every fifth level are outweighed by the increases from the other levels, eventually reaching 88.25 HP per minute at level 79 before dropping once more to 84.88 HP per minute at level 80.
  • Prior to the January 29th 2014 update that introduced hero abilities, and prior to the October 12th 2020 update that removed sleep button for heroes, the original description for the Archer Queen, as well as the Barbarian King, were "Heroes can attack enemy villages or guard your village. Heroes can be injured, but are immortal. Heal them by letting them sleep or using the Heal button. Heroes won't defend the village while sleeping."
  • The Archer Queen's regeneration time has been reduced multiple times. The most recent reduction occurred on June 22nd, 2020.
  • The total upgrade time for the Archer Queen to get from level 1 to level 85 is 391.16666 days.
  • When initially released, the Archer Queen cost 40,000 Dark Elixir to summon. This was later reduced to 20,000 in the March 2020 update, and further reduced to 10,000 in the April 2021 update.
  • The first person to max out Archer Queen and Barbarian King was the player named jessiebrar. (during the initial release of Heroes, the max level for both heroes was 30.)
  • The Archer Queen appears with long wristbands in her artwork, but doesn't appear with them in battle.
    • She used to appear with long wristbands in her 2D sprite before being converted into 3D.
  • The Archer Queen's crossbow fires out three arrows, despite that it is designed to only be loaded with a single arrow.
  • The Archer Queen is the only Hero to appear in Clash Royale.
    • The Archer Queen's Royal Cloak ability in Clash of Clans functions similarly to the Cloaking Cape in Clash Royale. In addition to its Clash Royale effects, it partially heals the Archer Queen and summons Archers when used in Clash of Clans.
    • Unlike the Archer Queen in Clash of Clans, the Archer Queen in Clash Royale isn't enormous.
  • The Archer Queen is one of two Heroes along with the Barbarian King who appears as a character in the mobile game Squad Busters.
  • With the Champion Queen and Clash Games skins, the Archer Queen holds a bow instead of a crossbow.
  • The "Town Hall 16" update on December 12, 2023, reduced the Archer Queen's hitpoints and damage by around 20% each and changed the Royal Cloak ability to be split into 2 parts, Archer Puppet and Invisibility Vial. This was done to make Heroes weaker on defense. Also, her description was changed. It used to read "This graceful huntress is a master of destructive force, though modest in health. She snipes targets in her territory when defending, and can summon stealth and terrifying damage when attacking once her Royal Cloak ability is unlocked!"


  • The Archer Queen is one of the only units that can attack an Air Defense while being healed by a Healer without the Healer being in range of the aforementioned Air Defense. The other units capable of doing this are the Grand Warden and the Super Archer.
  • The Archer Queen is the only hero to appear barefoot in her default skin.
  • She is the only hero to appear in Clash Royale.
  • The Archer Queen is one of the three troops associated with Archers, the others being the Sneaky Archer and Super Archer.
  • The Archer Queen is one of the 13 units to appear in a Scenery, the others being the Barbarian, Goblin, Balloon, Hog Rider, Barbarian King, P.E.K.K.A, Baby Dragon, Skeleton, Grand Warden, Dragon Rider, Cannon Cart, and the Party Wizard. In her case, she appears in the Clashy Constructs (as Clockwork Queen), and the 9th Clashiversary Scenery (as Party Queen).
  • The Archer Queen and the Barbarian King were the first Heroes added to the game.
  • The Archer Queen has the highest damage out of all the Heroes, including troops.
  • The Archer Queen and Barbarian King have the highest levels out of all heroes.
