Clash Royale – X-Bow
“Nice tower you got there. Would be a shame if this X-Bow whittled it down from this side of the arena…”
This card can be found from Arena 3, Barbarian Bowl.
This card costs 6 Elixir.
The card, along with the Mortar, has the longest deploy time, at 5 seconds.
The X-Bow, if left undamaged, will last up for 40 seconds.
Can be used for both attacking and defending.
The X-Bow can is able to attack opponent’s towers from your side of the base.
Has a very long range.
The X-Bow, along with the Mortar is the only card that can attack opponent’s tower from your base.
Works well with supporting units such as Minions. If used properly, it can be a very promising duo.
Works well with supporting buildings as well such as Cannon and Inferno Tower. This trio is able to frustrate opponent as the X-Bow will focus on dealing damage to the Tower while the Cannon and Inferno Tower take down troops trying to get to the X-Bow. If the X-Bow is not able to take down the tower, sneak in a Rocket or Lightning in your deck to finish the job for you.
Works well with Rage as it decreases its long deploy time to prevent opponent from defending against it and increasing its hit speed which is already very fast.
Works great against squishy units as it is able to outrange them.
Versatile. Able to be used for both attacking and defending.
The X-Bow complements well with a lot of cards.
Opponent will usually get very frustrated when you use the X-Bow. Using a X-Bow can catch your opponent offguard as not many people uses the X-Bow deck.
The low damage is compromised by its fast attack speed.
Opponent has no choice but to react to the X-Bow if not it is able to deal significant amount of damage to the Tower.
Extremely weak against Rocket. It is possible to be one shoted by the Rocket.
Not able to protect itself against air units as it can only target land units. Using the Minion Horde can destroy the X-Bow without getting much damage in return. It is also able to destroy the trio of Cannon, Inferno Tower and X-Bow. You will have an Elixir advantage after that as you only used 5 Elixir to destroy the trio which costs a total of 14 Elixir.
The Zap is able to change its target.
Opponent can easily overwhelm it with a swarm of troops such as the Barbarians. Even a Giant by itself will be able to take it down.
Opponent is able to react to it due its long spawn time. (5 Seconds)
All opponent has to do is to deploy sufficient amount of troops before the X-Bow is up to bait the X-Bow to attack them instead of the tower.
