"Who would've thought that pumpkins make for good makeshift armor? The pumpkin helmets provide these regular Barbarians some extra hitpoints until they get destroyed."

  • Summary
    • The Pumpkin Barbarian was a temporary troop that was available during the 2017 Halloween, along with Giant Skeleton.
    • They act like regular Barbarians wearing pumpkin helmets that prevents them from being killed in one shot, like the shields in Clash Royale. However, they can still be bounced away by Spring Traps.
    • After the pumpkin helmet gets destroyed, they become regular Barbarians.
    • Pumpkin Barbarians have no preferred target when attacking; they will simply attack the closest building. However, once they become aware of enemy Clan Castle troops, Heroes, or Skeleton Trap skeletons (either by being attacked themselves or by being near another friendly troop under attack), they will leave their previously targeted building and instead engage the enemy troops. Once all of the nearby enemy troops are defeated, the Pumpkin Barbarians will proceed to attack the nearest structure.

  • Offensive Strategy
    • The Pumpkin Barbarians are completely superior to normal Barbarians of equal level, having a shield in the form of a pumpkin whilst having the same health, damage and training cost. If you use Barbarians in your attacks you can replace them with Pumpkin Barbarians which can be more helpful in your attacks.
    • Since they have a similar nature to Barbarians, you can use them in the same fashion as you would with regular Barbarians. For instance, you can pair them with Archers (and Minions) to form a cheap farming composition.
    • Since their pumpkins prevent them from being one-shotted by anything, it is much less risky to use them in large groups since a Giant Bomb will merely remove their pumpkins if they still have it on. However, the pumpkins have low hitpoints and can be easily removed by any ground defense or even a Bomb.

  • Trivia
    • You could have a maximum of 240 Pumpkin Barbarians at one time in a complete set of fully upgraded Army Camps. This number increases to 345 if you include the 45 that could fit into a fully upgraded Clan Castle. On the battlefield, you could clone an additional 80 Pumpkin Barbarians with two fully upgraded Clone Spells.
    • Like all other temporary troops and spells, the Pumpkin Barbarian can't be donated ,and can't be upgraded in the Laboratory. However, their levels are dependent on Town Hall level.
    • This troop's mechanics could have been inspired by a Clash Royale troop, Guards. This was the first temporary troop not to come from another supercell game.
