Summary

  • The Hog Raiders are a squad available in the Clan Capital, available when the Hog Raider Barracks is constructed (this requires the Dragon Cliffs district to be unlocked, when the Capital Hall is upgraded to level 6). The squad spawns two Hog Riders and one Hog Glider.
  • The Hog Glider is similar to the Hog Glider in the Builder Base, in that it is a Hog Rider on a glider that attempts to crash onto the nearest defense, stunning it for 4 seconds if it succeeds. Regardless, the Hog Rider will drop down and continue to fight.
  • The Hog Riders are defense-prioritizing troops that can jump over Walls and small water gaps if required to attack defenses.
  • Hog Raiders 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 troops stationed in defense posts (Super Giant, Raid Cart, and Super Dragon Posts). Note that the defense posts themselves are not considered defensive buildings, regardless of whether or not their stationed troops are still alive.
    Once all defenses are destroyed, Hog Raiders 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.

Strategy

Offensive

  • Just like Hog Riders in the Home Village, Hog Raider squads can be used in mass to destroy large numbers of weak defenses; the squad effectively deploys three Hog Riders for 15 housing space, while the Hog Glider and its potential stun can be treated as an added bonus. Healing Spells synergize excellently with them due to their middling hitpoints, and these spells can even be set up in a prior attack if so desired.
    • However, the high damage of defenses in the clan capital and the number of traps can make this strategy ineffective, so just beware and it could be good to use tanks to test for traps before this.
  • Alternatively, Hog Raiders can be used surgically; the Hog Glider's stun can be a good alternative for Lightning Spells if important defenses, especially Inferno Towers or the Capital Hall, are exposed. The Hog Glider stuns and damages the defense upon crashing while the Hog Riders deal more damage to the defense.
    • Do be careful to protect the Hog Glider when using Hog Raiders in this way, since only one Hog Glider is present in the squad, and it can be picked off by anti-air defenses. Air Defenses and Rapid Rockets that are nearby to shoot down the Hog Glider should be distracted or otherwise neutralised before deploying the Hog Raiders, and Zap Traps (which will destroy the Hog Glider) should be checked for.
  • They can also be used to destroy exposed compartments with lots of air defenses and little to no ground defenses, which due to their damage, can help to snipe such compartments for an effective air attack.

Defensive

  • Keep your important defenses out of reach from Hog Raiders. Place other defenses such as Cannons and Spear Throwers to soak up the stun and damage from Hog Gliders and to distract Hog Riders.
  • Heavy splash defenses such as the Rocket Artillery can do severe damage to a group of Hog Riders, allowing them to be easily finished off should a Healing Spell not be used.
  • While both Hog Riders and Hog Gliders can bypass Walls, only the Hog Gliders can bypass rocks. Use the rocks to your advantage to split up Hog Riders and Hog Gliders, allowing defenses to destroy them easily.

Trivia

  • You can have a maximum of 16 groups of Hog Raiders at one time in a complete set of fully upgraded Army Camp.
  • The hogs are most likely a "Phacochoerus africanus" (common warthog). Common Warthogs are smaller than boars but more agile which might explain why the Hog Rider can move particularly fast. Warthogs also have tusks, which is like the Hog Rider's hog in Clash of Clans.
  • Hog Glider is a clear pun on Hog Rider and hang glider.
  • The Hog Rider bears more than a passing resemblance to Mr. T and Zangief from Street Fighter.
  • The addition of Hog Gliders alludes to the fact that the Hog Rider, seen in the video introducing the Builder Base (two years before the update that added it), did not make an appearance in the Builder Base until then.
  • Interestingly, the Hog Riders spawned from the Hog Gliders are named "Hog Rider" in game files; Hog Riders in the Home Village are called "Boar Rider" in game files.
  • According to an AMA response by Darian, the Hog Glider was inspired by a scrapped idea for a main village Goblin Glider.
  • In Hog Mountain, 2 Hog Rider statues can be seen behind the enemy's King's Tower in Clash Royale.
  • In Clash Royale, the Master 2 League badge resembles a Hog Glider's hammer.
  • The hog is heavily implied to be as sentient as a human by the commercials, being seen playing cards, training with the rider, giving baths and even singing in English.
  • Despite the Clan Capital not having Dark Elixir, the Hog Rider from the Glider creates a Dark Elixir bubble explosion upon death.
    • This is likely due to the fact that Hog Riders are made of Dark Elixir.

Comparisons

  • Hog Riders along with Barbarians, Archers, and Miners are the only 4 troops not based on fiction or legend/myth. The P.E.K.K.A may be based on fiction but it is currently unknown.
  • Hog Raiders have the most legs of any troop with a total of eighteen (including riders and hogs).
