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 XBow and all you can do is watch your towers get crumpled and crumbled! Boo-hoo!

But no worries, RockU got your back and me ItchyMonkey will teach you a thing or two for countering those nasty Xbows! The X-Bow is unlockable in Barbarian Bowl - Arena 3.


So this little devil (specially level 4) from Clash of Clans also landed to Clash Royale. Aah yes, we know that. And we also know that the first thing on an X-Bow's mind is destroy - destroy whatever big and strong on the other side of the fence - which usually are your towers!

But of course let us go ahead and kill this son of the devil itself and hear yourself say "Damn Daniel!" if Daniel's your name that is.


X-Bow is weak against aerial troops like the Minion Horde. Spells like the Fireball can damage it well.

How To Counter The X-Bow:


The XBow's dirty tactic made a nice impact in the game in its first months. Though it is not being widely used right now than before, utilizing it in some other ways is possible. Like friendly battles and the like will let you still experience the fun. Who knows, maybe they will try to make a buff for this card in the future, again.
