The Hog Rider is a strong card that is unlockable in Arena 1 - Goblin Stadium. He focuses on buildings only. His most unique feature is he can jump from the river to reach the other lane.


The Hog Rider deals out a great amount of damage and can be paired effectively with the Freeze Spell. He is very fast and wired to focus on buildings. Additionally, he can distract enemy troops if situations arise for it.


Since the Hog Rider is wired on buildings, he will go straight to the nearest building to him. He will get distracted to attacking that other building instead of going straight to the tower. Also, he won't be able to attack any troops because of it. This will render him useless in the face of Swarm Troops.

How To Counter The Hog Rider:

A swarm of troops around towers will make quick work of the Hog Rider. Try playing Goblins, Skeleton and Minions around the tower he's attacking to counter this card. Virtually any card can counter the Hog Rider because his HP is just moderately high. This is the reason why he's always partnered with the Freeze Spell.

Throwing another building to the arena will also distract him away from your towers. This should give you time to send a swarm of troops after him.

Despite his glaring weakness, the Hog Rider is extremely popular, and will continue to be popular for the time being. If you, on the other, is on the receiving end of a Hog attack, wait if he has a Freeze Spell first. Or you can strategically position your counter troops so that all of them will not be immobilized by the Hog Freeze combo.


The Hog Rider is one of the most popular cards up until the latest arena in Clash Royale. Its HP and damage is big and strong enough making him as the main demolisher of the team. Though there are so many ways to counter him, players tend to look for ways to support him.
