Well, well, well, look who we have here! The Bowler! He is the seventh dark troop in Clash of Clans. You can only unlock this bad boy once you upgrade your Dark Barracks to level 7 which cannot be done until you reach Town Hall 10. Bowler’s signature move is, of course, his boulder. He loves chucking it at defenses and troops alike, dealing serious damage with each toss. But here’s where things get really fun – if two enemy buildings are lined up just right, Bowler’s boulder can strike them both at once! Now that’s what we call multi-tasking.
Bowler is an essential part of many popular attack strategies at Town Hall 10 and higher. One of the most well-known strategies is GoBoHo, which sounds like something straight out of a Dr. Seuss book. This zany attack strategy involves Golems, Bowlers, and Hog Riders all working together to get a perfect three-star. Players just can’t get enough of it, and it’s been used to take down various base designs.
Alright, time to break down Bowler’s stats. Bowler is a ground unit and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. He’ll stick to attacking ground-based targets like a loyal foot soldier. So if you’re looking to take down some aerial enemies, you’ll need to call in reinforcements. But when it comes to ground targets, Bowler can cause some serious destruction. His boulder can deal splash damage if his targets are all lined up like ducks in a row. And speaking of targets, Bowler doesn’t play favorites – he’ll go after whatever building is closest to him.
At the end of the day, Bowler’s effectiveness all comes down to his level. He has a total of six levels to his name, and if you max him out, he can deal 102 damage per second and has 500 hitpoints. But don’t worry about housing space – Bowler is a minimalist and only requires 6 housing spaces in your Army Camps. And sure, he might not be the speediest troop out there, but he can still move at a decent clip with a movement speed of 14. That’s just a little faster than the Witch.
Oh, and one more thing – since Bowler is a dark troop, you’ll need to have some Dark Elixirs handy if you want to upgrade him. It’s like the saying goes: no pain, no gain.
Bowler’s Max Levels
Bowler has a total of 6 levels. He gets no level upgrade at Town Hall 15. Here is the list of max levels of Bowler:

Bowler’s Upgrade Cost & Upgrade Time
|Level||Upgrade Cost (Dark Elixirs)||Upgrade Time||Town Hall|
|2||65,000||3 days, 12 hours||10|

|6||305,000||16 days, 18 hours||14|
If you thought Bowler was impressive before, wait till you hear about Super Bowler. This boosted version of the regular Bowler is the stuff of legends. But don’t get too excited just yet – you’ll need to reach level 4 with your Bowler at Town Hall 12 before you can boost him up to Super Bowler status. And it’s gonna cost you a pretty penny – 25,000 Dark Elixirs, to be exact.
But trust us, it’s worth it. Super Bowler is bigger, badder, and just all-around better than his regular counterpart. He may need more housing space in your Army Camps – a whopping 30 spaces, to be exact – but he’s worth every inch. And get this – Super Bowler has a special ability. Instead of just hitting two targets with one boulder like regular Bowler, Super Bowler can hit three! Talk about overachieving.
But that’s not all. Super Bowler has a massive 2,000 hitpoints and can deal double the damage per second of regular Bowler. It’s no wonder some players use him in their attack strategies – he’s a total powerhouse. Move over, regular Bowler – Super Bowler’s in town!
How to effectively use Bowler
So, how do you effectively use the Bowler? Well, for starters, he’s great at taking out groups of enemy buildings. His boulder toss can deal damage to multiple buildings at once. Plus, he’s got some serious range, so you can keep him back from the action and still have him do some serious damage. Another effective way of using Bowler is by pairing him with some tanks, like Giants or Golems. The tanks will soak up the damage from the defenses, while the Bowler and his boulder take out the defenses themselves. It’s like a bowling ball rolling through a bunch of pins – satisfying and effective.
Bowler is a reliable ground troop, but unfortunately, he’s not much of a bird watcher. So, before unleashing your Bowlers, it’s a good idea to make sure the sky is clear of any Clan Castle aerial troops. They can be real pests and wipe out your Bowlers in a matter of seconds. If you’re planning to use Bowlers with Golems, make sure you bring some Wizards to the party. They’ll keep the Bowlers company while the Golems lead the way. The Wizards are great at taking out those air troops, allowing your Bowlers to focus on their objective.
And, as an added precaution, it’s always wise to bring along a Poison Spell. Not only does it slow down enemy aerial troops, but it also deals damage over time, making it an excellent tool for taking down those Clan Castle troops. With these tips in mind, you’ll have those pesky enemy troops running for the hills in no time.
