The Giant is first tanking unit in Clash of Clans with ability to target defensive structures as priority. As tanking unit giant is able to take huge amount of damage in order to defend weak units like archers. In this article we will describe briefly statistics and the best strategies as well as common mistakes that players are making.
The primary role of a giant is to be a walking shield in the game. The production time is 2 min. for one giant with the cost of five supply units for one giant. For additional resource you may check clash of clans hack tool and obtain enough resources for mass production.As you may suppose, they are slow units, with speed of 12 tiles, but they have huge amount of health points. Their preferred target is defensive structures and you will need to upgrade your barracks to level 4 to start their production. With such statistics Giants are best tanking units able to receive huge amount of damage, and take down defensive structures. With upgrades they gain even more health, so upgrading them will help you to create powerful shield in front of your archers and other weak units.They are, in fact very popular units in the game. But, they are not perfect. Their weak spot are spring traps and their low damage makes them slow at the breaking down defensive walls.
To take walls down much faster use several Wall breakers. They will create entrance for Giants that will destroy remaining defensive structures. Another option is to combine Giants with some ranged unit like archers. You can also add healing spell to give additional survivability to your Giants. They can be useful for farming, but on higher Town Hall levels. This strategy is very simple, just to deploy a giant and after that place several wall breakers. When they take down the walls deploy your other Giants together with archers. Sometimes new players think that they can have an army made only from Giants, but that’s it is not useful. That is one of very common mistakes in the game.
The reason is high cost of such army and relatively low damage output. At the lower levels of the game barbarians are more effective for farming then Giants, and we must say, much cheaper. You can use Giants for farming at higher levels of the game. The greatest danger for Giants are traps that can easily kill a Giant in a moment. To prevent that, combine your Giants with fast goblins that can activate traps and clear the path for your Giants.read more
