"Nothing says 'STAY OUT' quite like a good old-fashioned hidden bomb."

Level 1 & 2 Level 3 & 4 Level 5 & 6

  • Summary
    • Traps are relatively inexpensive structures (although the Giant Bomb costs 12,500 gold at level 1) that remain hidden until they are activated by an attacking troop moving into their trigger radius.
    • Once activated, traps must be re-armed in order to be a part of the next defensive Layout.
    • Traps can greatly improve the effectiveness of a village's defense if properly placed, but you need to make sure you re-arm them. For example, say your village successfully defends an attack while you are not playing, but several of your traps are triggered, then any attacks after that will not have to deal with those traps until you re-arm them.
    • Even though traps are classified as "Defensive Buildings", they are not buildings and do not need to be triggered/destroyed for your enemy to reach 100% destruction (nor do they count toward it).
    • The Bomb explodes when an enemy comes into proximity. It works well near outside of village so larger areas of Troops are weakened before breaking through.
    • Does splash damage.
    • By itself, a single Bomb will not do a great deal of damage to even the weakest of Troops (although every bit helps). However, several Bombs in a cluster can significantly damage or even destroy an entire group of Archers or Goblins, for instance.
    • The Bomb takes a little time before it can explode.

  • Defensive Strategy
    • One defensive strategy commonly used for the placement of Bombs is to place them around the outside of the base mostly to prevent large numbers of tier 1 troops (and sometimes Giants, too).
    • Alternatively people decide to create little sections on the outside of their base which contain a defense and are open for a Giant to walk in as a trap for them. People like to wipe out a Giant by placing a Spring Trap at the entry to these outer spaces.
    • Be cautious when upgrading the Bomb as this will reveal its location to future attackers. Combat this by relocating it during the upgrade period. A Bomb cannot be triggered during an upgrade.
    • Placing two bombs side by side is a good strategy to kill or severely damage tier one troops, especially archers!

  • Upgrade Differences
    • At level 3, the Bomb becomes a little bigger and gains 4 golden spikes around its circumference.
    • At level 5, the Bomb is encased in a metal shell that has 4 golden spikes and several golden bumps on its surface.
