Clash Royale – Hog Rider
“Fast melee troop that targets buildings and can jump over the river. He followed the echoing call of “Hog Riderrrrr” all the way through the arena doors.”
This card can be found from Arena 4, P.E.K.K.A Playhouse.
This card costs 4 Elixir.[/li
The Hog Rider only targets Buildings.
It is able to leap over the river rather than just using the bridge.
The Hog Rider is one of the most popular cards in the game.
Use it with a high hitpoint card, such as Golem so that it can attack buildings while the Golem is soaking up the damage from surrounding opponent troops and towers.
Part of the notorious Hog-Freeze combo. It basically allows the Hog Rider to attack the Tower without getting damaged.
It can be deployed to “counterattack” the other tower while a fight is going on one of the tower. With its fast movement speed, high hitpoints and damage, it is more than capable of dealing insane amount of damage to a tower if left undefended.
Deploy the Prince at one side of the arena, and deploy the Hog Rider at the other side arena. Opponent’s will have a problem defending against one side of your attack.
With its fast movement speed, you can get to reach a tower fast enough to deal some damage at least.
It has sufficient hitpoints to at least tank some damage, before dying, to deal some damage.
Damage is quite decent. Able to deal significant amount of damage if played correctly.
With its ability to leap over the river, you can choose to deploy it from the middle of your base for it to leap over to avoid the battlefield.
Players have no choice but to react/defend against the Hog Rider, if not it is able to wreck havoc to your towers.
Air units are able to destroy the combo of Golem-Hog Rider easily.
It focuses on buildings, hence a Tombstone is able to counter it easily as once it is destroyed, 4 Skeletons are produced to help destroy the Hog Rider.
A well placed Barbarians can easily destroy the Hog Rider even before the Hog Rider can get a hit off your tower.
Placing a building card in the middle of the arena, will bait the Hog Rider to hit it, which allows both Towers to attack it.
Swarms like the Minion Horde can easily destroy the Hog Rider.
||Damage per second
Only card that is able to jump across the river.
Description is based on the Clash of Clans commercial, Ride of the Hog Riders.
It yells “Hog Rider!”, when it is played.
It is similar to the Hog Riders in Clash of Clans, based on their ability to jump and them prioritizing in destroying buildings.
Used to share the same attacking sound as Barbarians.
The deploy sound of the Hog Rider was changed. This update is as of 3/5/16.
