Super Troops Explained

Super Troops are temporarily powered-up versions of regular troops in the Home Village. They are usually stronger, faster, and make more damage than their regular counterpart.

Each Super Troop also features a special ability, which makes them even more special.

Upgrading Troops

You can power-up troops on the Super Troop Barrack, next to the trader.

All upgrades are instant and cost Dark Elixir, around 25.000 each, but may vary depending on the troop you've chosen.

Once purchased, a timer will show up: this is how long the troop you have selected will have the power-up.

The upgrades are all temporary and last for only 3 days and you can upgrade only 2 Super Troops at the same time.

On the 2020 Autumn Update the cooldown to upgrade the same troop again was removed from the game. On the 2020 Winter Update the upgrade time was reduced from 7 to only 3 days and allowed the players to have 2 Super Troops at the same time.


The Super Troop Barrack becomes available once you reach Town Hall 11.

However, some troops can only be upgraded on higher Town Halls depending on their requirements. For example, the Super Giant requires a regular Giant level 9, which is available only on Town Hall 12.

Troop Level

The Super Troop level is based on the regular troop you are about to power-up.

For example, a Barbarian level 8 will be a Super Barbarian level 8 once upgraded.

There is also a minimum level required to be upgraded, and this varies on each troop. The Barbarian must be at least level 8 to be upgraded.


Super Troops can be requested and donated just as regular troops.

However, to receive the specific Super Troop you have requested someone in your clan must have the Super Troop active as Super Troops can't be donated with Gems.

This makes the donation of Super Troops a bit complicated, as there is a chance no one in your clan has the troop you are requesting.
