Type Common
Stats at Level 1 HP (32), Damage (32), DPS (32)
Technical Details Targets (Air & Ground), Speed (Very Fast), Range (Melee), Count (4)
Other Details Four (?) tiny flying creatures with big ears. Having big ears doesn't mean they'll listen when asked to stop attacking you.

Bats Overview:

Bats are available in Arena 8 - Frozen Peak. Their stats are the same as the Skeletons. They are very fast aerial units with low HP. They only cost 2 Elixirs, which is great for Zap bait decks. Once all four Bats are in contact, they can have a total of 335 DPS.

If compared to the Minions, they can do more damage. As the Minions have 252 total DPS. But, they are more fragile.

Min and Max Stats:

HP 32 67 98
Damage 32 67 98
Damage per sec x 2 32 67 98

Balance Updates:

  • On the [Balance_Changes/August_11_2017|August 2017 Balance Update]], the Bats' count is increased from 4 to 5.
  • On the June 8, 2017 Balance Update, Supercell trimmed the number of Bats from 5 to 4.

Bats on Offense:

The Bats task is almost the same with the 1-elixir Skeletons but in mid-air. This card is likely to be used as a support and distractor. Their HP might be low but their gathered damage and attack speed will surely help you in taking down counters.

The Bats are also a great and cheap troop that can fully support your main units. In what we can see, the Bats are fit to Bait, Hog Rider and even in Slow-Push Decks, like Golem and Giant decks.

Bats on Defense:

The Bats are great in defense. This 2-elixir card will help you save towers against ground attackers. Though they can be killed by a single Zap/Arrows, the enemy will likely think twice before using their spells against it.

How to counter the Executioner:

The Bats are best paired with ff. cards:
