Scattershop Explained

The Scattershot is a type of trebuchet or catapult that launches boulders at the nearest enemies.

You can build up to two Scattershot's on Town Hall 13 and they can be upgraded to level 2.

Capable of targeting ground and air troops, it is extremely effective against support ground and air support troops.

Cone-Shaped Blast

The Scattershot makes area damage, being capable of killing most support troops and damaging even high HP troops and Heroes as well.

Upon impact, the bundle will break apart causing additional damage in a cone-shaped blast, dealing splash damage to the troops behind.

Range and Dead-Zone

Clash of Clans | Home Village | Defenses | Scattershot |

The Scattershot has a range of 10 tiles but has a quite small dead zone around. With only 3 tiles, most ranged troops will not be able to get into the dead zone. The Mortar, another defense with a dead-zone, has a range of 4-11 tiles.

Upgrading Scattershots

Upgrading the Scattershot increases its damage per second and hitpoints.

Tips & Tricks

Scattershot is, among with the Giga Inferno, the signature defense from the Town Hall 13, therefore it's a very powerful defense that you must always take into consideration while preparing your attack.

Both new defenses on Town Hall 13 are extremely strong against small/weak troops. Scattershot makes splash damage and the Giga Inferno targets multiple units at the same time. With these new defenses, the gameplay is changing to heavier and stronger troops to destroy them.

Its damage is so high that it can even kill the Archer Queen during the Queen Walk, so on offense be prepared to use Rage Spell to save your Queen.
