Wall Breakers is a very low health Skeleton with a special ability to explode themselves when they reach walls.
They are the only unit on the game that prioritize walls over all other buildings, but they don't run towards any wall segment. They will always look for the closest building protected by walls. Once they reach the wall, they will explode. For this reason they will skip single segment of walls and walls with an open gap.
The explosion makes splash damage and can affect 2 rows walls if they are close together. For this reason double walls are not recommended anymore.
The damage from the bomb is quite low but it is multiplied by 40 when reach a wall, making them very useful to destroy walls and nothing more.
If he is killed before hitting the walls he will not drop the bomb and will not cause any damage.
Wall Breakers are a very useful troop but its use can be quite tricky if you don't plan correctly.
The big problem of the Wall Breakers is their extremely low health. They can easily be destroyed by all defenses that make splash damage: Wizard Towers, Mortars and even traps.
For this reason Wall Breakers can't be released alone. First you should always deploy other troops to distract the defenses and make the path safe for them.
Since traps can easily kill them, it is recommended to release just a single Wall breaker first to search for traps.
Wall Breakers are always released in small groups. You must always find out how many Wall Breakers you need to destroy the specific wall level you want. There is no reason to send 10 all Breakers if only 3 could do the job. However, it might me a good idea to send one extra unit just in case a single-target defense kills one of them.
Multi-target Inferno Towers can easily destroy hordes of Wall Breakers, so use Wall Breakers near them unless you have a plan. There are two ways to make them survive long enough to explode the walls: you can use a Freeze Spell on the Inferno or you can send 5 high health troops to distract all Inferno Tower flames. This can be easily done with Giants.
Rage Spell works great with Wall Breakers. It makes them even more powerful and reduces the number of Wall Breakers required to destroy walls.
