The Royal Hogs is available in Arena 10 - Hog Mountain. The card four Hogs to make buildings and towers crumble is added to the game to have an additional win condition.

This 5-elixir Rare card can deal around 2,000+ DMG if left unattended and definitely be a players' worst nightmare. Here is how you can counter the four Hogs.

The Royal Hogs are tower locking units that can devastate a building or a tower. Each Hog has almost the same HP as a single Musketeer. One Hog's damage is fairly low but all four of them can deal around 2000 DMG at tourney standard.

How to Counter the Royal Hogs:

  • All four splashers and any ground splashers should be placed at the side to hit all the Hogs.
  • Spells such as Fireball should be accompanied by the Zap, Giant Snowball, and The Log to completely eliminate them.

The Royal Hogs is a great addition to the Clash Royale arena. One of the most popular combo it had when it came out was the Royal Hogs 3M Deck. Where players have to choose as to which card to Fireball, the Elixir Collector, Three Musketeers, or the Minion Horde. The best choice is to counter the double Muskies.
