Giant Thrower info
"This big budding sportsman throws a heavy bouncing ball at the nearest Building. Then he moves onto the typical Giant smashing!"

Level 1-11


  • The Giant Thrower is a temporary troop introduced in May 2024, for the Clash with Haaland event, requiring 1,000 Res Football to unlock.
  • The Giant Thrower is a Giant wielding a football (from association football). When initially deployed, the Giant Thrower moves towards a building and targets it with a throw in; the football used in this bounces three times in a straight line. Each bounce deals heavy splash damage to buildings, ground troops and Walls, which take 15x damage from the bounce.
    • The building targeted by the Giant Thrower's throw in need not be a defensive building.
  • After the football is thrown, the Giant Thrower acts as a melee unit, behaving similarly to a regular Giant.
  • Giant Throwers prioritize defensive structures above all other targets, and will bypass all other types of enemy buildings and troops while any defenses remain on the battlefield. This is true even if they are under attack by enemy Clan Castle troops, heroes or Skeleton Trap skeletons. Note that like all troops that prioritize defenses, Giant Throwers do not consider the Clan Castle to be a defense regardless of whether or not it contains enemy troops, but do consider the defending Grand Warden and the activated Town Hall weapon (if any) to be defensive buildings.
    Once all defenses are destroyed, Giant Throwers become like any other troop with no preferred target; they will attack the nearest building to them regardless of type, and will turn and attack enemy units if they become aware of any nearby and can fight back against them. However, they will not switch targets to enemy units until their previous target was destroyed.
