Bat Spell info.png

"Summon an army of Bats anywhere on the battlefield!
Deploy aerial reinforcements wherever you need them most. Bats do not trigger traps."

  • Offensive Strategy
    • Bats can destroy most single-target exposed defenses relatively easily.
    • Bats can distract Air Defenses for air troops (Balloons, Lava Hounds, etc.) for some time.
    • Bats can be very effective in distracting single-target Inferno Towers from targeting your tanks (Golems, Lava Hounds, etc.). But, against multi-target Inferno Towers, the Bats will get killed quickly.
    • Wizard Towers are excellent in countering Bat-based attacks. Consider their placements carefully when planning such an attack. Either distract them with another troop like a Giant or Ice Golem or use a Freeze Spell to stop them.
    • It can be viable to use Bat Spells in masses with Lava Hounds, although this can be very costly in Dark Elixir. The Lava Hounds will be able to tank well for the Bats (as well as shield them from Inferno Towers) while the Bats do damage.
    • If defenses are targeting your tanks, place the Bat Spell on the defenses to destroy them.
    • A good strategy for Bat Spells would be to place a lot of them down near the center of the base, along with a Rage Spell and a Freeze Spell aiming to destroy single-target Inferno Towers, Air Defenses, and the Eagle Artillery at the beginning of an attack. Anything else would be a bonus. Then use the rest of your attack to maul the rest of the base.
    • With a similar thought process, use something else that does not require more than one or two rages to take out a portion of the base, along with the Town Hall and Splash defenses to create a clear path and make the job much easier for the bats to breeze through the rest of the base.

  • Defensive Strategy
    • One hit from a Scattershot can take out a horde of Bats quickly. However, due to the Scattershot's slow attack and the Bats' speed as well as the Scattershot's blind spot, a Scattershot may be swarmed before proving to be useful. Make sure to surround your scattershot with several defenses in order to stall the bats.
    • If multi target Inferno Towers are unavailable (due to being upgraded, for example), having X-Bows set to ground air mode can also destroy Bats quickly. Archer Towers set to fast attack can also prove viable.
    • Air Bombs can be helpful to sweep up Bats that are following closely behind other air troops, but as the Bats cannot trigger the Air Bomb themselves, it may not be a reliable option.
    • Having a defensive Archer Queen and other Clan Castle troops that can target air can also be useful to defend against Bats. The Bats will not attack these units; however, they may be too fast to tackle. It may also be possible these defensive units target other air troops instead.
    • A massive swarm of Bats may be terrifying but can easily be stopped by Wizard Towers, and multi-target Inferno Towers. The Giga Tesla and Giga Inferno also can mow down bats quickly.
    • If Bats are very close to each other, one shot of the Eagle Artillery could take them all out, but this is not a reliable option, because if other troops are on the battlefield, it is unlikely the Eagle Artillery will target Bats due to their low hitpoints.

  • Trivia
    • The Bat Spell was added in the December 10th, 2018 update.
    • When deployed it makes a similar sound effect to the Clone Spell.
