How to counter Bomb Tower

Bomb Tower is the beefiest defensive structure in the game and does relatively high amounts of splash damage to ground troops. However, it’s glaring weakness is that it only damage ground troops, so air troops can easily take it out. If your opponent drops a Bomb Tower, do not drop off Barbarians or any other ground troops with less HP as the Bomb Tower will make quick work of them. Instead, Minions, Minion Horde, or Baby Dragon should be able to do a signficant to the Bomb Tower if it is close to the river. Alternatively, dropping a massive tank such as a PEKKA, Golem, or Giant along with supporting ranged troops makes a beefy push that can easily deal with the Bomb Tower and then some.

 

Bomb Tower Strategy

  • The Bomb Tower can be used to distract troops that target Buildings, to protect a tower, such as Giants or Balloons.
  • Its very effective against a swarm of low hitpoint troops, such as the Skeleton Army or Goblins.
  • The Bomb Tower can be effectively placed, in the radius of the players Tower, as any opposing offensive troops attacking the Bomb Tower, will be targeted by the defending Arena Tower.
  • Keep in mind that the Bomb Tower cannot attack air units. This means that Minions can take it out without taking damage on their own.
