Attack Strategies[]

QW, Walk

Short for "Queen Walk"

The Archer Queen is used with Healers to destroy key defensive buildings and take out enemy Heroes or Clan Castle troops. The Archer Queen can attack an Air Defense while keeping the Healers out of range, while the Healer can often heal up moderate damage received. Often used as the first stage of an attack to clear a path for the main attacking force.


Short for "Queen Charge"

Variant of the Queen walk, used to get rid of dangers, especially the eagle artillery, to an invading army instead of obtaining value

Warden Walk

Short for "Grand Warden Walk"

Grand Warden Walk is less common than Queen walk. The Grand Warden is deployed with Healers out of the Air Defense range, while the Healers can often heal up moderate damage received. Similar to the Queen Walk


Deploying Wizards and P.E.K.K.A.s to deal high dps. Usually involves both healing spell and rage spell.

Hog Rider Rush

Hog Riders are deployed en masse to take out defenses. Attackers usually use Healing and Rage Spells.


Lava Hounds are deployed. Then Balloons are deployed. The Lava Hounds shield the balloons from air defenses while the Balloons take out all of the bases defenses, if only Lava Hounds and Balloons are used the strategy is vulnerable to Clan Castle troops.


Golems are deployed as tanks and shields and Hog Riders are deployed to take out defenses quickly.
