The Barbarian is the very first troop you unlock in the game and used for trophies at lower Town Halls but becomes a farming troop or a troop used to lure Clan Castle troops at higher levels. Barbarians are relatively cheap and quick to train. Barbarians are also spawned by the Barbarian King's Iron Fist ability if the King is at least Level 5. Stats for the Barbarian can be found on this wiki.

Strengths and Weaknesses of Barbarians[]

Barbarians are melee troops that have moderate health and low damage. They are strong against single target troops like the P.E.K.K.A by swarming them but weak against splash damage troops like the Valkyrie, which can kill multiple Barbarians in one hit.

Pros of Barbarians:[]

  • They can survive a shot from the Cannon or the Archer Tower with the health
  • They can swarm a P.E.K.K.A or Ice Golem
  • They are cheap and quick to train
  • Barbarians only take 1 housing space so a lot of them can be part of an attack.

Cons of Barbarians:[]

  • Massed Barbarians can get killed by a Valkyrie or Mortar in one or two shots
  • Barbarians have trouble against Walls, which can cause them to get grouped up.
  • Barbarians are weak against defending troops behind a wall.
