Clash Royale Giant

Slow but durable, only attacks buildings. A real one-man wrecking crew!

Clash Royale Giant

  • The Giant is unlockable from Tutorial (the Training Camp).
  • He is a single target, melee Troop with high hitpoints.
  • He wears a large, brown, cloth coat and has ginger sideburns and bushy eyebrows with blue eyes.

  • The Giant is effectively used as a shield for other troops. He can soak the damage of enemy troops while other units deal damage.
    • Dealing with an opposing Giant that is paired with another troop can be difficult. You must wait for the troop(s) to cross the river, then take them out with an appropriate troop. Dont forget to deal with the Giant right after, or distract him with some buildings to give your Crown Towers more time to take him out.
      • Keep in mind that waiting like this gives the enemy more time to add more strength to their push.
  • A good way to eliminate the Giant is by using high damage troops like the Mini P.E.K.K.A. and Prince, or using swarms of troops like the Skeleton Army or Minion Horde. If the enemy has low hitpoint troops behind the Giant, you can use Arrows to eliminate them, and then deploy any of the above mentioned cards.
    • The Witch is also a good way to eliminate the Giant. While her damage is very low, she continuously spawn Skeletons that can build up to enormous strength. The Skeletons can then produce a counter-push.
  • One of the most effective counters is the Inferno Tower, which can eliminate a Giant in seconds.
  • An overlooked Giant attacking a Crown Tower can easily deal an immense amount of damage on his own.
  • The Giant can be easily distracted by placing a building next to him, such as the Tombstone. Once the Tombstone is destroyed, the 4 Skeletons spawned will aid in eliminating the Giant.
  • A Giant can be used to protect troops from spawners, like Spear Goblins from the Goblin Hut.
  • When a Crown Tower starts targeting a Giant, it will not switch targets until the Giant is dead.
  • This makes using a Goblin Barrel when the Crown Tower is focused on a Giant very effective, as the Giants large number of hitpoints will allow the Goblins to deal immense damage.
  • Placing a Prince behind a Giant is a good idea since the Princes charge speed will speed up the Giant.
    • Just remember to put in a troop that does splash damage to support the troops, as both the Prince and the Giant are weak against swarms of troops.
  • Countering a Spawner with a Giant is not a good idea, as he will let the troops build up to a strong push.
    • Support the Giant with area damage troops, such as a Bomber, Valkyrie or Baby Dragon to eliminate these spawned troops.
    • This is a better option than the Giant Skeleton because it targets buildings, does more damage and has better defense.
