Jump Spell

A spell appearing in the Home Village and Clan Capital, that temporarily allows ground troops to jump over Walls. In the Clan Capital, it can also be used to cross small gaps of water, as well as vines.



The act of removing a Clan Member from a Clan. Only Clan Elders, Co-Leaders and the Leader are capable of kicking members, and they can only do so against members of lower rank than themselves.

Kill Squad

A common war term used to describe a portion of an army that serves a critical function as a first phase to help the following phase(s) in the attack. For example, in a GoLaLoon attack, the kill squad (usually consisting of Golems, Wizards and Heroes) is typically used to disable the opposing Clan Castle troops, some Air Defenses and the Archer Queen.



A structure in the Home Village that allows you to upgrade troops and spells. Depending on the context, it may also refer to the Star Laboratory.


An Attack Strategy consisting of Lava Hounds and Balloons.


A mechnical Pet in the Home Village that can jump over Walls to attack targets. She has average HP and DPS, but a fast movement speed and attack rate.

Lava Hound

An air unit in the Home Village with a favorite target of Air Defenses. When a Lava Hound dies, it splits up into 8 to 18 (dependent on level) Lava Pups, a weaker version of the Lava Hound. The Lava Hound is a Dark Elixir troop.

Lava Launcher

A Mortar-like defense in the Builder Base that shoots balls of lava at very long range. The lava does only minor damage on impact, but lasts for a considerable duration, with a damage over time effect similar to the Poison Spell.

Lava Pup

A Subtroop that is ejected in masses when a Lava Hound is killed. It cannot be trained directly.


Refers to a specific distribution of buildings, traps and walls. Each layout is typically designed for a purpose (protecting resources, protecting trophies in general, defending against a particular troop like a Hog Rider, etc.). Different layouts not only cause troops to behave in a certain way, it also will typically dictate the attack strategy employed by the opponent.


The way Clash of Clans divides players with different trophy counts, by placing players with similar trophy count together to judge progress. There are eight leagues in the Home Village (namely Bronze, Silver, Gold, Crystal, Master, Champion, Titan and Legend), and each league except for Legend has three divisions. Higher leagues provide higher league bonuses and star bonuses for every victory, but generally the opponents in higher leagues will be harder to beat. To join a League one must complete an attack when they have at least 400 trophies. The leagues reset every month.

League Bonus

Bonus loot won in addition to Resources that were stolen from the enemy, upon achieving a victory whilst in a League. The League Bonus is dependent on how much of the enemy's base was destroyed in the attack; more destruction means a higher proportion of League Bonus is awarded.

Legend League

The highest trophy League in the Home Village, which utilises separate matchmaking rules to minimise the effects of clouds. Players are limited in the number of attacks and defenses they have in Multiplayer Battles each day.

League Medal

A Resource used in the Home Village, won from Clan War Leagues, that can be traded in for various rewards in the Shop.

Legend Trophies

Permanent purple Trophies that are awarded at the end of a Legend League season, in trade for any excess trophies past 5000 the player might have at the end of a Legend League season. These trophies are displayed in the player's profile.

Lightning Spell

A spell appearing in the Home Village and Clan Capital, that invokes a lightning bolt that drop from the sky, damaging all buildings and enemy troops in a small area. The lightning bolt also briefly stuns affected targets, causing them to re-target.


Abbreviation for Log Launcher.

Log Launcher

A Siege Machine which targets the Town Hall and shoots logs on the way. The log deals x4 damage to Walls, and can travel a considerable distance from the Log Launcher. The Log Launcher's health will decrease while attacking, like the Siege Barracks.

Master Builder

The one and only Builder in the Builder Base. He functions just like a normal Builder does, except that he has two distinctions: he controls the Battle Machine, and he is also able to gear up particular defenses in the Home Village. Once the O.T.T.O Hut is fully upgraded, he can freely travel between the Builder Base and Home Village to function as an extra builder for both villages.

Master Builder's Hut

The place of residence for the Master Builder in the Home Village. Only buildable once the O.T.T.O Hut is fully upgraded and O.T.T.O unlocked.


The act of finding an opponent, either for Multiplayer or for Clan Wars.

Meat Shield

A meat shield is one or more troops used as a "distraction" to draw fire away from other troops so they can do damage. The Giant is obviously the most common meat shield because of his high health. P.E.K.K.A is also a great choice for a meat shield because of her high health and high DPS. However, because many people don't have/can't afford a P.E.K.K.A (or do not seem to find it viable), they use Giants instead.

Mega Mine

A Trap in the Builder Base and Clan Capital that does rather heavy damage. Like the Mine, it can be set to attack either ground or air troops.

Mega Tesla

A defense in the Builder Base that does massive damage but has a very slow fire rate. Its chain lightning allows it to hit a second target a distance from its initial target.


Disorganized, free-for-all, close quarters combat. In Clash of Clans terms, a melee troop is one that attacks via hand-to-hand combat as opposed to at range. If a melee troop is in range to attack another troop, that troop can always attack back.

Mountain Golem

A ground troop in the Clan Capital with very high hitpoints. A more extreme version of the Golem, it boasts extremely high damage, but is also extremely slow to move and attack, although the Mountain Golem does not preferentially target defenses. It boasts an extremely high Housing Space requirement, only allowing one to fit in an army at once.

Movement Speed

A number associated with an offensive unit that determines its movement speed across the battlefield; the higher the number, the faster the unit moves.

Multi Cannon

A Defensive Building in the Clan Capital that targets ground troops. It fires a burst of eight cannon shots at a time to a single target, making it an amplified form of the Double Cannon. This gives it a high DPS, but the Multi Cannon has rather short range.

Multi Mortar

A defensive building in the Builder Base and Clan Capital that fires a burst of four mortar shells at a time, each doing splash damage to ground troops.

Multiplayer Attack

See Raid. Multiplayer attacks refer specifically to those raids against another user in the Home Village, and often refer to only those attacks that occur as a result of multiplayer matches.

Multiplayer Match

Multiplayer matching is the act of selecting the "Attack!" button on the main screen while in the Home Village and then clicking "Find a Match" (for a nominal fee of Gold). If a player is currently in a Trophy League and successfully scores at least one star in such a match, that player will receive a League Bonus.

Obstacles include Trees, Rocks, Bushes, Mushrooms, Gem Boxes, and Trunks, etc.


A robotic builder constructed by the Master Builder. It resides in the O.T.T.O Hut situated in the Builder Base, and can function as a builder there.
