The Queen Walk has one single purpose and that’s creating a funnel. It will take out a big part of the base and aims to help funnel troops in, take down a defending Hero and also the defending Clan Castle troops.
Queen Walks always start with an Archer Queen and 4 Healers using your Clash of Clans Account. While the Queen deals some proper damage, the Healers will keep her alive. Once the damage gets too high the attacker can use her ability or a Rage Spell to keep her up (dealing more damage and adds more healing).
The ridiculous part, from the perspective of the defender, is that the attacker has all time to watch the Queen performing her walk and help her out with Spells until he starts the main attack. It appears that there is only little we can do, but that is not right.
Defending the Queen’s Attack using your Clash of Clans Account
How to defend against Queen Walks: The general mistake I think many do is expecting an Anti-Queen Walk Base that works all the time and makes the Queen Walk impossible.
I just want to set expectations right at this point – you won’t be able to defend against it all the time, but the good news is that the majority of attackers using it just had some basic knowledge from 1 or 2 videos. They are vulnerable against defending mechanisms that make the Queen Walk less powerful and that are what we’re going to do now.
To make a Queen Walk less powerful we will have to achieve:
- Prevent the Archer Queen to go into the base
- Prevent her to lure Clan Castle Troops
- Make her destroy fewer structures (to save percentage)
- When you achieve this you will not stop any Queen Walk attack on your base, but you will see some of them fail – a saved penny is an earned penny.
Killing the Queen with Defenses and Clash of Clans Troops
One of the weak parts of a Queen Walk is too much damage on the Archer Queen. Of course, she can get backed up with a Rage Spell, but that’s expensive. I don’t see an attacker using more than 2 Rage Spells on the Queen Walk, simply because then there are not that many spells left for the main attack using the main Clash of Clans Account Troops.
Point defenses are perfect because they will make the Archer Queen lose health – even if she is maxed and has 4 maxed Healers on her. You should always aim to have 3 point defenses targeting her.
A best practice is having your Archer Towers on the outside and also has each side of your base covered by an X-Bow. The X-Bow should cover the most outside range without being in range of the Archer Queen.
