Archer: Upgrade Cost, Max Levels and Upgrade Time

Clash of Clans: Archer Upgrade Cost and Upgrade Time

Ah, Archer! The poster troop of Clash of Clans. I mean, let’s face it, without Archers, what’s the point? These little darlings are experts at shooting bows and arrows, and they never miss their mark.

Whether their target is flying high or crawling low, these Archers are ready to unleash their deadly skills on anyone who dares to cross their path. Frankly, they make Robin Hood look like an amateur.

From the moment you start your adventure at Town Hall 1, Archer is at your service, ready to strike down your enemies. To unlock this troop, all you need to do is upgrade your Barracks to level 2.

And the best part? Archers only need a single housing space in your Army Camps. These deadly Archers don’t have a favorite target. Anything that comes within range of their arrows should get ready to get face them.

Now, let’s talk about Archer’s drawbacks. They might not pack a lot of punch with their low hitpoints and damage per second, but they only need a single housing space in the Army Camps.

You can train loads of them to swoop in and steal your enemies’ resources with ease. However, when it comes to war, they’re not the top pick.

Their small hitpoints make them vulnerable to splash attacks, which is why they’re not always preferred as a war troop.

Archer Max Levels

Archer gets a certain max level at each Town Hall. Each upgrade improves its hitpoints and damage per second. Here is the list of max levels of Archer at each Town Hall level:

  • Max Level of Archer at Town Hall 3 is level 2.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 5 is level 3.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 7 is level 4.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 8 is level 5.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 9 is level 6.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 10 is level 7.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 11 is level 8.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 12 is level 9.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 14 is level 10.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 15 is level 11.
  • Max level of Archer at Town Hall 16 is level 12.

Archer’s final level is level 12 which is available at Town Hall 16. It gets no level upgrade at Town Halls 4, 6, and 13. Barbarian and Archer have similar upgrade levels at every Town Hall.

Archer in Offense

While Archer might not be the go-to choice for serious attack strategies due to its low hitpoints and damage per second, it can still be a useful troop for farming until Town Hall 9.

After that, players typically switch to using Miners and super troops for farming at higher Town Halls. Despite its limitations, Archer is a key troop in popular farming attack strategies like GiBarch or Barch.

In these strategies, higher hitpoint troops like Giants and Barbarians serve as damage tanks while Archers focus on taking out resource buildings.

Thanks to their ranged attacks, Archers are great for creating a funnel before launching a ground-based attack strategy like Queen Walk or GoWiPe.

By cleaning up extra buildings, they create a path for your troops to easily navigate through the base and reach its core.

Another perk of Archers is their ability to target both air and ground units, making them especially useful for luring and killing Clan Castle troops.

With their arrows, Archers can clear out enemy Clan Castle troops and send them to sleep, making them a good addition to any attack strategy.

Super Archer

When you reach Town Hall 11 and upgrade your Archer to level 8, you’ll unlock the popular super troop – Super Archer. However, you will need 25,000 Dark Elixir to boost your Archer to its super version for the next 3 days.

So, what makes Super Archers so special? For starters, they have a unique ability to deal damage to multiple targets with a single arrow.

Their arrows can penetrate through multiple buildings, making them a good addition to your army combination. It’s no wonder that Super Archers are a popular choice among Clash of Clans players at higher Town Halls.

They’re often transported to the heart of the enemy’s base via a Battle Blimp, where their ability to target multiple buildings at once can cause absolute chaos.

If they reach the core of the base, they can quickly wipe out key buildings, leaving the enemy’s defense in shambles.

Super Archers can also be used to create a funnel for Queen Charge attacks, making them an excellent troop for strategic funneling.

All in all, if you’re looking to maximize your Clash of Clans experience, it is worth investing those 25,000 Dark Elixirs in Super Archers.
