  • This card is unlockable from the Training Camp (Tutorial).
  • The Musketeer is a strong troop, effective against air troops, such as the Balloon and Building targeting troops, or Minions, that have a small amount of hitpoints.
  • The Musketeer face is very similar to the Archers face, and her purple hair is similar the the level six Archers in Clash of Clans.
  • The Musketeer is also similar to a Zooka in Boom Beach, as it has a long range, and has a similar shooting animation.

 

How to counter Musketeer

Glass cannon ranged troop that can deal a lot of damage from afar if left alone. Always protect your Musketeer with a troop or tower to tank for her. To counter someone playing Musketeer behind their tower, use a Fireball on her and the tower and pray one of your troops hits her once. To counter a Musketeer that has crossed over to your side of the arena, simply drop something cheap such as Goblins or Knight on top of her to quickly take her out.

 

Musketeer Strategy

  • The Musketeer can be used to backup higher hitpoints troops such as Giants.
  • As the Musketeer can target both Air & Ground troops, its a powerful substitute to Archers, albeit at the cost of higher Elixir 4 Elixir (Musketeer) for 3 Elixir (Archers).
  • Its large range allows the Musketeer to help lower hitpoints from a distance without engaging with defending troops.
  • The Musketeers long range (6.5 tiles) is effective, as it can only allow a single Crown Tower to target the Musketeer.
  • The Musketeer can only attack targets one at a time, so cards such as Skeleton Army or Tombstone are effective counters against the Musketeer.
  • Musketeers are also effective counters against a Cannon. Due to their long range, they can outrange the Cannon and take it out from a safe distance.
