The Bats are first launched in the form of a Draft Challenge held on June 2017. This card can be obtained from the Frozen Peak - Arena 8.

The Bats are dubbed as the fastest aerial units you can use in the arena. For only 2 elixirs, they can counter almost every unit if left ignored. They might be weak alone, but can be very effective in distinct situations.

Due to the Night Witch's reign in the past, Supercell trimmed down the number of Bats. In this card, from 5, it is now 4 in total.

How to Counter the Bats:

Using Spells:

In countering this 2-elixir card, you have many options on how to counter the Bats. One is by using cheap spells.


The Zap can quickly annihilate these troops in just a flick. Aside from it, Arrows or Tornado are also some of the best answers to take it all down. The Fire Spirits are also a great counter card just like the Zap. It only costs 2-elixir that can provide an even trade in such situations.


Using Splashers:

Of course, Splashers will take this troops down in an instant. Depending on the enemy's play, they can outsmart your units through using the Bats alone.


Even cheap units such as the Archers and/or the Spear Goblins/Goblin Gang can wipe them out one by one in a snap.


Other Units You Can Use to Counter the Bats:

Princess Executioner Minions Arrows Spear Goblins

Decks That Can Counter the Bats:


Giant-Loon No Legendary Deck for Arena 11


Giant Witch Musk Deck for Arena 4


Goblin Gang Cycle Bait Deck for Arena 9


Hog Bait Cycle Deck For Arena 11


Baby Giant Night Witch For Arena 10


Royal Tornado Splash for Arena 7 and Above


The Bats can be considered as the Flying Skeletons. They can be killed in an instant but can be very useful in different scenarios. Like what other clashers see, this unit is best mixed with the popular Bait Decks today. Also, they can be very powerful if combined with Slow-Push Decks like the Golem and Night Witch mashup. Additional Bats all over!
