These skeletons with bombs as their partner is everywhere in Clash Royale right now. These Balloons can be a force to be reckoned with and destroy any Crown Tower if played well. The balloon is a single target, aerial troop that you can unlock from the (Arena 2) Bone Pit. This flying wrecking ball is not just useful when it's working, but it also deals a big damage when it's deflated or destroyed, because it drops a huge bomb that can destroy nearby troops or buildings.


This flying bomb dropper doesn't just aim on Crown Towers, it can also destroy buildings too! This means high-attack cards like the X-Bow and the Bomb Tower will be at the mercy of the balloon.


The Balloon is more like a flying Giant because it just focuses on buildings. If you strategically put down the right troops, you can destroy it without it damaging your towers at all.

Popular Balloon Decks:

The Clash Royale Balloon is not just for support. In some good cases, you can disguise it as your main attacker without your opponent noticing it.

A great offensive deck. Two tanks and one spell card to destroy all the towers. Try this deck and win matches quickly!

Intimidate your Clash Royale opponent by continually pushing until he just drops whatever he has.

This Redditor shares his F2P Deck that helped him survive Arena 7 and join the high rankers on Arena 8!

How To Counter The Balloon:

Since the Balloon is an aerial troop, this can be countered with Minions/Minion Horde or any ranged troop like Archers or Spear Goblins. You need, however, be mindful of the bomb it drops once killed. It will be better to put you counter cards behind him. In this, when the bomb explodes, your troops have already walk away.


The balloon is another solid support for your Clash Royale deck. You can also try making it the focus of your attack as the bomb it leaves behind can kill troops, and even towers, in no time.
