More Info Button
"Blending the powerfully blasty bombs of a Balloon with the rock-hard armour of a Lava Hound, the Lavaloon brings a base to ruin one boom at a time."

Level 1-10


  • The Lavaloon is one of four temporary troops introduced in the Mashup Madness event for Clash-o-Ween 2023. It can be unlocked after accumulating 35,000 Sour Elixir in the event.
  • The Lavaloon combines aspects of the Balloon and Lava Hound. Like Lava Hounds, the Lavaloon preferentially targets Air Defenses; in attacking, the Lavaloon releases its bombs on its way to its target, similar to a Battle Blimp. Each bomb does moderately high damage per hit and spawns a Lavaloon Pup. When defeated, the Lavaloon explodes, dealing high area damage, and releases a few Lavaloon Pups depending on its level.
  • The Lavaloon cannot be upgraded in the Laboratory. Its level is instead determined by the player's Town Hall level.
  • Lavaloons prioritize Air Defenses above all other targets, and will bypass all other enemy buildings and troops while any Air Defenses remain on the battlefield. This is true even if they are under attack by enemy Clan Castle troops, heroes or Skeleton Trap skeletons. Once all Air Defenses are destroyed, they will continue to attack any other remaining defenses. Note that like all troops that prioritize defenses, Lavaloons 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 remaining defenses are destroyed, Lavaloons 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.


Offensive Strategies[]

  • Much like the Lava Hounds, Lavaloons target Air Defenses and drops bombs which a Lavaloon Pup each every few seconds. To get the best value, use Lightning Spells and/or other attacking units to destroy Air Defenses so that the Lavaloons will destroy defenses and the Lavaloon Pups will take out the non-defensive buildings, and eventually destroy the base.
  • In the case if there are any defending Clan Castle troops, use a Poison Spell to slow them down or destroy them.
  • Lavaloons are weak to single-target damage, with traps such as Seeking Air Mines and defenses like single-target Inferno Towers. For the single-targeting defenses, use a Freeze Spell to disable the defense, or use an Invisibility Spell to turn them invisible.

  • You could have a maximum of 13 Lavaloons at one time in a complete set of fully upgraded Army Camps. On the battlefield, you could clone an additional 4 Lavaloons with four fully upgraded Clone Spells (three from the regular spell inventory and one from a level 10 or higher Clan Castle), for a total of 17 Lavaloons.
  • This troop name comes from an army strategy, the LavaLoon.
