One of the reasons why most Clash Royale players gets defeated is because of those annoying spell/troop cards and Goblin Barrel is one of them. This article will help you counter them.

Card Overview:

The Goblin Barrel is one annoying spell card. It spawns three Goblins to attack anywhere on the Arena. It also deals minor damage to the area where the barrel explodes. Since they only cost 3 Elixirs, this can deal more damage to crown towers than any other troop if timed correctly.

Strength:

The strength of the Goblin Barrel relies on how you use it. If it is used to attack a tower that has lots of defense, then you are just wasting 5 Elixirs. But, if a Giant is attacking the crown tower, using the Goblin Barrel on that crown tower would be a great idea.

How to Counter the Goblin Barrel:

These cards can counter the Goblin Barrel:

Valkyries: They can counter them quite easily due to her area of effect damage.

Fireballs: Are great for countering MOBs, more likely a group of Goblins.

Arrows: Another great spell for countering MOBs and cheaper too.

Zap: A much cheaper spell to counter a group of goblins.

Spear Goblins: Let them taste their own medicine, and this time with spears.

Archers: They can shoot down those goblins quite easily.

Bombers: With their splash damage, their bombs can wipe out those Goblins in no time.

Minions: Three Goblins against three Minions? The Minions can take them out easily.

  • I'll drop an Electro Wiz just as the Goblin Barrel hits. When timed right, his stun then his shot can take out two of the three goblins before they get a shot- and the tower will usually get the third. Ice wiz dropped just before goblin barrel hits will keep them from damaging your tower as well. -- 20:31, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
