"This undead creature poses little threat by itself. But it never fights alone, since the Drop Ship can throw an endless horde of Skeletons at your enemies!"
Skeletons are melee units dropped by the Drop Ship.
Skeletons have no preferred target when attacking; they will simply attack the closest building to them. However, once they become aware of enemy Guard Post troops (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.
Skeletons are dropped in groups of 3 by the Drop Ship.
Unlike in the Home Village, Skeletons do 5 less damage per hit.
Skeletons can distract ground defenses from targeting more valuable troops, such as a Night Witch, while they take the defenses out.
Skeletons can get stuck on the Crusher and take a long time to take it out, so placing the Crusher near air defenses like Firecrackers and Air Bombs can stall the Drop Ship, allowing the air defenses to take it out.
The Roaster can hit both the Skeletons and the Drop Ship at once, given that they are in the same location, so make sure to distract it with a high-hitpoint troop or hero, such as the Battle Machine.
Skeletons have the same damage per second as bats; however, they hit twice as fast while dealing 1/2 the damage per swing.
