The Eagle Artillery is an absolute beast of a defense in Clash of Clans that gets available at Town Hall 11. This bad boy has the longest attack range in the game, covering the entire village and keeping invaders at bay.
However, it’s worth noting that the Eagle Artillery does have a tiny no-fire zone around it, which means it can’t target any units that are too close.
The Eagle Artillery won’t be activated until the enemy deploys a 200 housing space worth of troops. This magical defense building deals splash damage, which means it can damage multiple units with a single shot.
And get this – every time it strikes, a shockwave is sent, causing even more damage to troops in the surrounding area. With all these killer perks, it’s no wonder the Eagle Artillery is considered the most powerful defense in Clash of Clans.
One more thing that makes the Eagle Artillery such a powerful defense is its ability to take down both air and ground units with equal ease.
Whether you’re sending in Dragons or Golems, the Eagle Artillery will target them with its massive damage output.
And when this baby’s at max level, each hit it lands will deal a whopping 500 points of damage, plus additional shockwave damage of 40. That’s one heck of a strike!

Strategic Placement of Eagle Artillery
If you want to get the most out of your Eagle Artillery, it’s important to position it strategically within your base.
If you’re at Town Hall 11, we recommend placing both the Eagle Artillery and Town Hall at the core of your base. This layout ensures that two of your most vital buildings are well-guarded and much harder for attackers to reach.
However, things work a bit differently at Town Hall 12 and beyond. At these higher levels, Town Halls come equipped with their own signature defenses to help them fight off invaders.
Town Hall 12, for example, features the fearsome Giga Tesla defense, which activates when the Town Hall takes hits from enemy units or when the total base destruction reaches 50 percent.
Once you reach those higher Town Hall levels, it’s better to keep your Eagle Artillery and Town Hall separated from one another.
If, for example, your Town Hall is positioned on the right side of your base, you’ll want to place your Eagle Artillery on the left side.
This way, if one of these important defenses falls, the other will still be standing strong.
At these Town Hall levels, both the Eagle Artillery and the Town Hall’s signature defenses (such as the Giga Tesla or Giga Inferno) are equally important.
By placing them on opposite sides of your base, you won’t lose both of these defenses together when an enemy attacks your base.
If you’re at Town Hall 15, there are some neat tricks you can use to boost your Eagle Artillery. For starters, you can pair it up with a Spell Tower that’s loaded up with a Rage Spell – this will increase Eagle Artillery’s damage output and firing speed.
To keep your Eagle Artillery safe from approaching troops, you can also consider pairing it with a Spell Tower loaded with a Poison Spell. This will give Eagle Artillery a better chance of fighting against approaching troops.
And here’s another pro tip: consider using an Invisibility Spell on the Spell Tower closest to your Eagle Artillery.
This way, when enemy troops get too close, the Eagle Artillery can disappear for a few seconds, increasing the chances of its survival.
