  • The Yeti is a single-target damaging Elixir Troop unlocked once the Barracks is upgraded to level 14, which requires Town Hall level 12.
  • Yetis possess above-average health and attack compared to most damage units. When deployed, they carry a set amount of Yetimites; for every 600 damage he takes, the Yeti spawns a Yetimite, if he still has any remaining. Once destroyed, the Yeti releases any remaining Yetimites he still has.
  • Yetis have no preferred target when attacking; they will simply attack the closest building. However, if 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), and can fight back against them, they will leave their previously targeted building and instead engage the enemy troops. Once all of the nearby enemy troops are defeated, the Yetis will proceed to attack the nearest structure.


Offensive Strategy

  • The Yetis' above-average health and relatively high attack can help the funnel of the main army, especially when the Yetimites that spawn have a deceptively large amount of health to distract other defenses, they can jump over Walls and do a large amount of damage to defenses, making the funnel even smoother.
  • Ensuring that a Yeti gets hit enough to activate Yetimites is essential to increase the damage output of the Yeti, since the Yeti doesn't deal a lot of damage by himself, but if the Yetis get destroyed, then the Yetimites can be destroyed easily.
  • A good strategy with the Yeti is called the Yeti Smash, where you use Yetis and other support troops and heroes to push the Yetis into the base, which is a very effective strategy, since the Yetimites actually do a lot of damage with the Yetis being an effective tank that can't be easily wiped, and the Yeti himself can actually do some decent damage if left unchecked.
  • When paired up with Healers, Yetis can also act as a tank. This is commonly used after a Warden Walk. This works very well since they can spawn Yetimites and make sure the Yeti can tank more, and let them take out the Air Defenses before they target the Healers.
    • When not under Healers, they have comparatively low health compared to other troops of similar housing space, so Yetis should be deployed behind other high-health troops such as Golems, Ice Golems, or P.E.K.K.As.
  • Due to the high damage output of Yetis, a common and viable strategy is to fill the Battle Blimp with Clan Castle Yetis, then send in the Blimp to drop the Yetis on key defenses such as Inferno Towers and Eagle Artillery, paired with a Rage.

Defensive Strategy

  • The Healers maximize the potential of the Yetis. Protect the hard-hitting Air Defenses and keep them out of the way of possible Yeti attacks to maximize value. One tip is that attackers will try to grant Yetis access to the core.
    • The Eagle Artillery and the Scattershot can also destroy both Yetis and their Yetimites. Keeping them off-center and away from possible attacks to limit their effectiveness.
  • Due to the relatively low health of Yetimites, Poison Spells can be deadly, greatly limiting the effectiveness of a Yeti in the Clan Castle.
  • Due to the relatively small health pool and inability to hit air troops without Yetimites, the Yeti makes for a poor defensive choice in Clan Wars or for general.
    • However, due to the lack of both at Town Hall 6, Yetis can serve as a decent defending troop, and it is the only Town Hall level where they can.
  • Splitting the Yetis can reduce their effectiveness by reducing the amount of Yetimites and also the total HP. Giving too much access is an easy way to do this. Additionally, this will also split the healers up.

Upgrade Differences

The Yeti undergoes visual changes at all levels.

  • Initially, the Yeti is a large blue creature covered in fur with two magenta horns on his head. He wears a khaki basket and carries a group of Yetimites in it.
    • At level 2, the Yeti's fur becomes a darker color. The horns change from magenta to purple. The Yetimites change to a similar color of the horns.
    • At level 3, the Yeti's fur and horns becomes an even darker color, and the Yetimites in the backpack change from purple to violet.
    • At level 4, the Yeti's blue fur becomes slightly darker, gains a purple fur on his feet, and his eyes turn white.
    • At level 5, the Yeti gains golden armbands.
    • At level 6, the Yeti's horns are now golden, and his Yetimites turn maroon.

  • You can have a maximum of 17 Yetis at one time in a complete set of fully upgraded Army Camps. This number increases to 19 if you include the 2 that can fit into a level 8 or higher Clan Castle. On the battlefield, you can clone an additional 8 Yetis 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 27 Yetis.
  • Yetis have the most complex subtroop spawning requirements, requiring a certain amount of damage taken to spawn one. All other troops either spawn periodically or on death.
  • The Yeti is the only Elixir Troop that can spawn other units (Yetimites), excluding temporary troops.
  • The Yeti is one of the few troops to have upgrade differences at each level, the others being the Dragon, P.E.K.K.A, Dragon Rider and the Headhunter.
  • The Yeti's description states that hurting him will make the Yetimites angry, but in the Yetimite's description it says they get angsty.
  • Like all Elixir Troops unlocked after Town Hall 8, the Yeti's theme corresponds to one Town Hall (13 in this case) but is unlocked at the Town Hall before (12).
  • The Yeti, along with the Dragon, Dragon Rider and Headhunter are the only troops in Home Village that do not appear in Clash Royale, excluding Super Troops (with the exception of the Inferno Dragon).
  • If the Yeti runs out of Yetimites to spawn (which is possible by the Yeti being healed), his basket will appear empty. Interestingly, the basket will always appear full of Yetimites, regardless of how many Yetimites he actually has remaining.
