Bat Spell Explained

Clash of ClansSpell Bat Horde

The Bat Spell spawns several Bats over time on the battlefield.

Bats are fast, low health troops that target defensive buildings only. Only when all defenses are destroyed they will target other buildings.

Like Skeletons, Bats no longer trigger traps, so they can't be used to "clear the skies" before an air attack or Queen Walk.

This spell uses one housing space, just as all Dark Elixir spells.

Upgrading Bat Spells

Stacking Bat Spells is possible and commonly used.

Using many Bat Spells at the same time increases the spawning rate of Bat. Since it has a housing space of only one, you can replace two Rage Spells with four Bat Spells and flood the battlefield with many, many Bat.

Stacking Bat Spells

Stacking Bar Spells it's possible commonly used.

Staking multiple Spells on the same area increases the spawning rate of the Bats. Since it has a housing space of only 1, you can replace 2 Rage Spells with 4 Bat Spells and flood the battlefield with many, many Bats.

How to Use the Bat Spell

Bats have quite low life so it has to be used as a support spell and never by itself.

Bats are powerful only when they are in large quantities.

Due to its low health, its best use is against single target defenses as they can easily overwhelm them. It also does a great job distracting single-target Inferno Towers.

Since we are talking about a spell, the Bats can be spawned right on top of the defenses, including single Inferno Towers. However, this spell is most commonly released on the sides of the village and the Bats fly over your army while targeting defenses.

Bat Spell is also useful to support air attacks. They are quite fast and will easily take the lead on mass Balloons attacks, distracting Air Defenses, and single-target Inferno Towers.

Watch out for Wizard Towers, multi-target Inferno Towers, and Air Bombs. They can easily kill hordes of Bats.
