The Archer is one of many Regular Troops in the Clash of Clans game.

These sharpshooters like to keep their distance on a battlefield and in life. Nothing makes them happier than single-mindedly taking down their target.


The Archer is a female warrior with sharp eyes. She wears a short, light green dress, a hooded cape, a leather belt and an attached small pouch. She has a quiver slung to her back, a short bow in her left hand and a golden band on each of her upper arms.

She is a ranged unit, the first such unit unlocked in the Barracks, and the second overall troop unlocked.

Archers have no preferred target when attacking; they will simply attack the closest building to them. However, once they become aware of enemy Clan Castle troops, Heroes or Skeleton Trap skeletons (either by being attacked themselves or being near another friendly troop under attack), they will leave their previously targeted building and engage the enemy troops instead. Once all of the nearby enemy troops are defeated, they will proceed to attack the nearest building from their current location.

Pick your favorite and tell us why – you could win 1000 gems!!! We’ll announce the winner tomorrow!”. The winning comment was made by Paula Shayne Lao Olbes, supporting Archers. She said:

From a women’s perspective, Archer definitely… its cheap, fast, versatile (back up to giants or can be used with barbarian), and stylish too. Plus it is the name of my 2 month old baby :)
