Clash Royale – Bomber

bomber

“Small, lightly protected skeleton that throws bombs. Deals damage that can wipe out a swarm of enemies.”

 

Summary

  • This card can be found from Tutorial.
  • This card costs 3 Elixir.
  • The Bomber can only attack land units. It deals splash damage.
  • Basically a Skeleton that wears a cap and pilot goggles whilst holding a bomb.
  •  

    Strategy

  • Potent against huge wave of units especially those with low hitpoints, for example, Skeleton Army.
  • Versatile. Can be used both defensively/offensively.
  • You can use it offensively by deploying it with high hitpoint troops such as the Giant to protect them from getting targeted. The Giant will target the tower while tanking the damage while the Bomber will focus on the ground troops.
  • Can be used to destroy the Barbarians.
  •  

    Strengths

  • High splash damage. Seldom, do we have troops that deals so much splash damage with one attack.
  • Cheap. Costing just 3 Elixir, it provides you with a good source of damage.
  • Can be used to destroy troops costing much more Elixir such as the Barbarians. Hence, giving you an Elixir profit.
  •  

    Weaknesses

  • It is not able to attack air units, so they are not able to survive on their own most of the time.
  • Can be easily destroyed by air troops such as the Minions.
  • Not able to effectively destroy semi-tank/tank cards.

    Trivia

  • Part of the Skeleton family. It is related to the Balloon, Giant Skeleton, Guards, Skeleton Army and Tombstone.
  • On 2/2/16, the attack speed was buffed from 2 sec to 1.9 sec.
  • On 3/5/16, the Bomber’s range was decreased to 4.5 (from 5), but its effective range is unchanged. The Bomber’s “range bug” was also fixed.
  • The damage of the Bomber was buffed by 10%. This is as of the 18/5/16 update.
  • Bombers are like the upgraded version of Wall Breakers in Clash of Clans.
  • One of the loading screen which states, “One day, Wall Breakers realized that they could do a lot more damage if they THREW the bomb rather than sat beside it. Imagine that…” is basically referring to the Bomber.
