Clash Royale X-Bow Interview:

I know you've been there, doing the usual hoarding of elixirs, thinking of what card to use, and then boom somebody pulled up an X-Bow and all you can do is watch your towers get crumpled and crumbled. Unlockable in the Barbarian Bowl - Arena 3, the X-Bow is a building type troop that can target ground troops and buildings from far away.

How To Counter The X-Bow:


The X-Bow is the original building destroyer in the early days of Clash Royale. Depending on the meta updates, the X-Bow remains a very good fast counter to the likes of the Princess and other small HP troops, as well as another building that can stand on the way of an incoming Hog Rider or Giant.
