Super Hog Rider10
Level 10-13

Summary

  • The Super Hog Rider is a Super Troop based on the Hog Rider. It can be unlocked by boosting the Hog Rider when the Hog Rider is at least level 10.
  • Boosting the Hog Rider requires 25,000 Dark Elixir or a Super Potion, and doing so allows the Hog Rider to be boosted for 3 days. The level of Super Hog Rider you obtain from the boost corresponds to the level of Hog Rider you have.
  • The Super Hog Rider is a ground troop that attacks defenses similarly to the Hog Rider, being able to bypass Walls to that end to achieve this.
  • The troop comprises a Super Rider and a Super Hog, though they attack as one unit initially. When defeated, the Super Rider is knocked off the Super Hog, and the pair will continue to fight as single troops.
    • The Super Rider deals more damage, targets all buildings, but is incapable of bypassing Walls and moves more slowly.
      • However, it deals double damage to walls.
    • The Super Hog continues to target defenses, and can still jump over Walls but has lower DPS.
  • Super Hog Riders 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 Clan Castle troops, heroes or Skeleton Trap skeletons. Note that like all troops that prioritize defenses, Super Hog Riders 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 defenses are destroyed, Super Hog Riders 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. However, they will not switch targets to enemy units until their previous target was destroyed.
  • Because of the level requirements to boost Hog Riders into Super Hog Riders, players require a level 7 Clan Castle to hold one, even though space for it exists in Clan Castles as low as level 2.

Strategy

Offensive

  • Because they are more durable than regular Hog Riders, they can be much more useful in Queen Charges and are less prone to splash damage, such as from Bomb Towers and Scattershots.
  • The Super Hog Rider spilts up upon death, and summons a hog and a rider. The hog is faster and will attack defenses, while the rider is slower and attacks anything. This essentially makes the Hog the tank while the Rider deals the damage.
  • Because the rider will get flung 5 spaces back when the Super Hog Rider dies, try and keep them alive until the center of the base, where the attack won't be completely ruined.
    • Another reason for this is because the Super Rider will target anything, it can help with cleaning building behind due to the damage the Rider has. The Super Hog will continue to destroy defenses and will act as a mini-tanker.
  • It can be used in Miner Hybrid attacks with the Regular Hog Rider, and because of it being more durable and being an okay troop for clean up, it can be a very worthwhile and useful contribution to the army.
  • The Super Hog can jump over walls after spliting, but the Super Rider can't. However, the Rider also deals double damage to walls.
  • The Super Hog Rider will always split into Hog and rider, even when bounced from a Spring Trap, so use this to your advantage.
  • The Super Hog Rider should still be supported by the Grand Warden, as while the Super Hog Rider will be fine, the Hog and Rider won't and will die due to the poison/splash damage.

Defensive

  • In theory, they should be good defending troops, with essentially two buffed Hog Riders for only 12 housing space. However, upon testing by Judo Sloth, it isn't effective as an Archer Queen backed by 5 Healers and a Poison Spell can easily destroy the horde without taking too much damage herself. The Archer Queen could in theory take on 4 of them (48/50 Clan Castle) without the Poison.

Trivia

  • You can have a maximum of 26 Super Hog Riders at one time in a complete set of fully upgraded Army Camps. This number increases to 30 if you include the 4 that can fit into a fully upgraded Clan Castle. On the battlefield, you can clone an additional 12 Super Hog Riders with four level 7 or higher Clone Spells (three from the regular spell inventory and one from a level 10 or higher Clan Castle), for a total of 42 Super Hog Riders.
  • The Super Hog Rider is the only troop in the game to split into two different sub-troops upon death.
