  • The Rocket Artillery is a defensive building in the Clan Capital, unlocked at Capital Hall level 5.
  • The Rocket Artillery periodically fires rockets at ground and air troops at a long range, dealing heavy splash damage in a similar vein to Mortars. However, the Rocket Artillery is unable to attack troops in close range due to its small blind spot.
  • The Rocket fired is not homing - it locks on to a troop's location instead of the troop itself. This means that if the troop moves away fast enough after the rocket is fired, it may be able to avoid the damage.



  • The Rocket Artillery is effective at staving off hordes of smaller troops and capable of doing significant damage to higher-health troops like groups of Super Giants or Raid Carts. Due to its rather slow fire rate, however, other splash defenses like Bomb Towers may be more suitable at short range, and the Rocket Artillery can be overwhelmed if surrounded by ranged troops.
  • The Rocket Artillery should be well-protected to prevent melee troops from exploiting its blind spot and destroying it without retaliation. Taking advantage of its range and placing it deep in the base will allow it to contribute to the defense for much longer than if placed as a front-line defense. Surrounding it with Walls gives it just enough buffer to prevent ground melee units from entering its blind spot without first breaking the wall.


  • Taking down surrounding defenses and enabling the deployment zone to extend close to the Rocket Artillery is the key to destroying it.
  • Squads of Sneaky Archers will be able to deal considerable damage to the Rocket Artillery if they are able to get into range and stay cloaked. Defense-targeting troops such as Super Giants and Hog Raiders are also able to deal damage to the Rocket Artillery within its blind spot, enabling them to take it down effectively.
  • Because the Rocket Artilery has a bad aim, fast units can outrun it and will take no damage if the Rocket Artillery is targeting them while they are moving. Rocket Balloons are effective at doing this, as they can rush to the Artillery at a very fast pace and reach its blind spot even if the Artillery is surrounded by walls.

Upgrade Differences

Rocket Artillery undergoes significant visual changes for levels 2, 3, and 5.

  • When initially rebuilt, it is a red-painted rocket with metal plating at the nose and fins. It is supported with an angled wooden plank and supporting beams chained at the wooden platform surrounded by stone bricks in its perimeter.
    • At level 2, the metal plating at the nose and fins is replaced with gold. The wooden platform receives a metal ring with iron spikes around.
    • At level 3, the metal accents around the beams, the chains, and the spiked ring around the platform are replaced with gold. The base gains four golden metal legs.
    • At level 4, the base of the platform receives another golden metal accent at either end.
    • At level 5, the base of the platform receives another golden metal accent at either end, once again. In addition, the stone perimeter is now painted in a red color. The rocket itself also receives multiple golden accents around the nose and becomes bigger in appearance.
