Clash Royale – Cannon
“Defensive building. Shoots cannonballs with deadly effect, but cannot target flying troops.”
This card can be found from Arena 3, Barbarian Bowl.
This card cost 3 Elixir.
This Cannon, if left undamaged, lasts for 30 Seconds.
The Cannon is primarily used for defending against land troops and it cannot attack air units.
The Cannon only attacks one unit at a time.
Place in the range of Towers, to prevent air troops from easily destroying it.
Can be used to reshuffle your deck without sacrificing too much Elixir.
Can be used to slow down the tempo of the game.
Can be used with the Inferno Tower to deal huge amount of damage.
Can be used to bait target-building cards such as the Hog Rider to hit it instead of your towers. It is cheaper than the Hog Rider, hence you will have an Elixir Advantage.
Cheapest building card, and it deals fairly high amount of damage.
Decent attack speed.
Air troops can easily destroy it without being damaged. An example would be the Minions.
Lifetime is only 30 seconds.
The Tesla is a huge upgrade to the Cannon and it only cost 4 Elixir.
Can be easily destroyed by a spell such as the Fireball.
Musketeer has a higher range, hence it can destroy the Cannon without getting damaged.
