Clash Royale Rocket

How to use Rocket Effectively

People usually use Rocket offensively but sometimes this card is very useful on defense as we can use it to wipe out a large group of troops immediately. You will only want to use the Rocket If it can damage both the Crown Tower and several troops nearby which are worth at least 4 Elixir in total.

If you want to know exactly how much damage your Rocket deals, simply hold the Rocket icon for a few seconds and everything will show up. This is a very helpful tip for you, especially when you want to use it to finish off a Tower.


You will not want to Rocket tankers such as Giant, Golem, Royale Giant,.. because this will put you to an Elixir disadvantage later when they are about to crush your Tower. It’s recommend to use Rocket to finish off troops and buildings. Also, you will not want to Rocket Dark Prince because of this special shield, you need to break it before doing any further damage.

Sometimes, If people place their support troops behind the King’s Tower, they will most likely drop a tanker right in front of the Tower. You will want to take the advantage of this by using your Rocket in front of the Tower. This is a bit risk but it will give you a hug advantage If done properly.

Rocket Deck works very well against Mortar and X-Bow decks as you can damage multiple defensive buildings at a time and make the most of Rocket.

If you want to use Rocket to take down Prince, Hog Rider, Baby Dragon and other fast moving units, be careful If you don’t want to miss! If you want to Rocket flying units, watch their shadows!



Flying troops tend to fly over Crown Towers. If your opponent drop his flying units after the King’s Tower, you can easily Rocket them by send it to the corner of the Tower nearby:

Because Goblin Hut spawns a Goblin after every 4.9 seconds, you will want to launch your Rocket at the moment you see it spawns the first Goblin so your Rocket will take down the Hut + second Goblin and deal damage to the Tower at the same time. Barbarian Hut spawns 10 Barbarians in total during its lifetime. 2 Barbarians get spawned every 14 seconds so you will want to time this properly. Otherwise, the Barbarian Hut will still be able to spawn 4 Barbarians in total. Just launch your Rocket when the first 2 Barbarians have walked about 15 tiles (right when they cross the bridge if the Barbarian Hut is placed behind Crown Tower).

When you face opponents using Elixir Collector, you will want to save your Rocket exclusively for the Collector. It’s a good trade when you use your Rocket to take down the Elixir Collector and damage Tower nearby. A same level Rocket prevents a same level Elixir Pump from replenishing 7 Elixir. Once they realize you have a Rocket, your opponent will most likely plant it on the side you are not pushing. Just take out the Pump anyway and damage that Tower because it’s a good trade and you may want to take it down later.

If your opponent is smart and plant his Elixir Collector 3 tiles away from the Tower and you can’t damage both it and the Tower nearby at the same time.

  1. If you have Mortar, use it to take down that Elixir Collector for a great Elixir trade.
  2. If you don’t have Mortar, just Rocket it anyway. Chances are you are disrupting their strategy because they probably want to build a big push with lots of Elixir

            Rocket is great in lower arenas as you can destroy a tower in 4 shots. so at arena 1 to 3 Just launch it at the same tower all game and push the other lane. So many players place witch at the back so it generates more larrys and also tanks to give them time to place an attack card in front. Try to destroy something as well as the tower as 6 elixir is quite a lot for 400 tower damage but 6 elixir to take out a witch plus definite tower damage is amazing. In arena 5 they are also great because everyone hut spamms. Place the aim half way over the tower half over the hut or in the middle if double hut. Huzzah.

    hey will can you suggest me a deck which uses balloon and rocket? a low cost deck or a deck which doesnt contain elexir collector is best. i want to use balloon because its my only (epic) card at tourney level. and i want to use rocket cause it does high damage and eliminates an elexir colector for equal elexir trade. Thank you.
