Clash Royale – Archers


“A pair of unarmored ranged attackers. They’ll help you with ground and air unit attacks, but you’re on your own with coloring your hair.”



  • This card can be found from the Tutorial.
  • This card costs 3 Elixir.
  • It summons a pair of Archers.
  • The Archer is a land, ranged unit that uses a bow for attacking. They can attack both air and land units.


  • Usually used as a support for high hitpoint troops to deal damage to towers, for example, Giant Skeleton.
  • Can be used to defend against low hitpoint troops such as Goblins.
  • Time your placement of Archers properly to ensure that it does not get wipe out by opponent units and to allow it to attack a few more times before opponent reaches your tower.
  • Can be used to reshuffle your deck without sacrificing too much Elixir.
  • Works extremely well defensively as it can bait opponent’s troop such as the P.E.K.K.A to attack them while also dealing damage.
  • If placed behind a tank card such as the Knight when defending, it can deal quite a bit of damage. It works the same offensively as well.


  • Cheap.
  • Attacks both land and air units.
  • Can be used to complement with a lot of cards.
  • Decent attack speed. Able to wipe out low hitpoint melee troops.
  • Can deal a lot of damage when there is a tank card to tank the damage for them.


  • Splash damage. A Bomber can easily wipe them out due to it having low hitpoints.
  • Easy to be defended against. Does not deal much damage against towers as its damage is pretty low. With its low hitpoint, opponent just has to place a unit to bait them and the tower can kill them easily.
  • Most players, also just ignore the Archers and let them hit the Tower as it deals very little damage.
  • The Musketeer, which costs just 4 Elixir is a huge upgrade from the Archers.
  • Baby Dragon can easily defeat the Archers, but the Musketeer can take down the Baby Dragon.
  • The Musketeer, can also deal more damage to the Tower as compared to the Archers.
  • Even though the Archers are slightly stronger than the Spear Goblins, most players still use the Spear Goblins due to the lower Elixir Cost.
