Archer Tower Explained

The Archer Tower is a rapid-fire single-target defensive building, dealing low to moderate damage to air and ground troops.

This is one of the first defenses unlocked on the game and it's quite strong on lower levels, but as you progress on the game and upgrade your Town Hall and troops, it slowly loses importance to stronger defenses.

Gear Up: Fast Attack Mode

Clash of Clans | Home Village | Strategy Guide | Gear Up Defenses | Archer Tower Gear Up
Fast Attack vs Long Range

The Archer Tower is one of the three defenses that can be "geared up", among with the Cannon and Mortar. Gear Up Defenses adds an extra configuration option to the defense.

Unlocked from level 7, you must have an Archer Tower level 6 on your Builder Base. This will add a "fast attack" mode that increases the damage in exchange for a shorter range, similar to the Archer Tower from the Builder Base.

It is currently possible to "Gear Up" only one Archer Tower.

Range

The Archer Tower has a large range of 10 tiles.

If you "gear up" the Archer Tower, the range is reduced to 7 tiles in exchange for more damage per second.

Upgrading Archer Towers

Upgrading the Archer Tower improves its damage and hit points.

Starting on level 7 you can "gear up" a single Tower as long as you have an Archer Tower level 6 on the Builder Base.

Tips & Tricks

With a large range and capable of targeting air and ground units, the Archer Tower is usually placed near the edges of the village to protect the buildings outside the walls and prevent an easy funneling.

With a fire-rate of only 0.5s, it is one of the fastest defenses on the game, making it very powerful against smaller troops that are used in large quantities.

If you are attacking with stronger troops, such as Giants and Golems, you should worry more about Cannons as they are more powerful.
