Rocket Balloon Explained
The Rocked Balloon is a powered-up version of the regular Balloon.
Compared to the regular Ballon, the Rocket Balloon is around 10% stronger, moves 20% faster, makes similar damage per second, and double damage upon death. It uses 8 housing spaces instead of 5.
Just as the regular Balloon, the Rocket Balloon also targets defensive buildings.
Special Ability: Boosters
Increases movement speed for the first 4 seconds
The Special Ability is what makes the Rocket Balloon worth the extra housing space: when deployed, the Rocket Balloon gets a huge extra movement speed boost for 4 seconds.
The boost is so huge that feels like it is using a Haste Spell. This not only can save you some spells, but it can also face Air Sweepers without much issues for 4 seconds.
How to Use the Rocket Balloon
The Rocket Balloon uses 8 housing spaces instead of 5 from the regular Balloon with a similar DPS and double death damage, so it's not really worth making a mass Rocket Balloon attack.
However, Rocket Balloons show their true value in the first 4 seconds of the battle. With the huge speed booster, you can easily snipe important defenses prior to your mass Balloon attack, saving you Haste Spells.
Unlocking and Requirements
Power-up your Balloon, transforming it on a Super Troop, costs 25.000 Dark Elixir and requires a Town Hall 12 and above.
It is available starting at Balloon level 8.
