“This big blue dude digs the simple things in life - Dark Elixir drinks and throwing rocks. His massive boulders roll through their target, hitting everything behind for a strike!”

The Bowler card is unlocked from the Rascal's Hideout (Arena 13). He is a medium-ranged, area damage troop with high hitpoints and moderate damage. The Bowler throws massive boulders which roll linearly, damaging and knocking back his target and any other units in the boulder's path. A Bowler card costs 5 Elixir to deploy.

Strategy[]

  • The Bowler's knockback effect functions identically to a Fireball, pushing back small to medium sized ground units, and minimally damaging heavy units such as a Prince. Troops vulnerable to knockback will have their attack animations reset and they are knocked back. (causing troops with slow attack animations or troops with charges to be incredibly less efficient)
  • The Bowler has a linear attack that passes through all troops, allowing him to damage support troops behind a tank and clear swarms with ease. Maximize his damage potential by lining up enemies with the Tornado.
  • The Bowler can counter the Goblin Barrel if he is played behind the Crown Tower. His deployment timer should finish just as the Goblins spawn.
  • His high health, linear attack, and knockback effect makes him a strong defense against pushes, damaging both a tank and the support units behind it. As an added bonus, his inability to knock back tanks means he can separate the tanks and the support units, making them easier to deal with individually. He is extremely effective when paired with an Ice Wizard and Electro Wizard as their slowing effects coupled with the Bowler's knockback make for a near impenetrable wall.
  • The Bowler is one of the best counters against spawners. He can one-shot Spear Goblins, Goblins, Fire Spirits and Skeletons. He can also take out Barbarians since he constantly delays them with his knockback, giving himself enough time to take them out. If he lands the final blow on a Tombstone, he will not only destroy it, but also destroy the Skeletons that would have spawned from it. This also makes him a very strong counter against the Witch since he can easily tank her attacks and will destroy any Skeletons she spawns.
  • Minions and Inferno Dragon can take out a Bowler without facing retaliation. Despite his splash damage, his slow attack-rate means that he can still be taken out by swarms like the Skeleton Army if he is surrounded.
  • He has a slow hit speed and low damage per second, so he may need to be supported by troops with a faster attack and higher damage output such as the Musketeer and the Witch.
  • He can counter Elite Barbarians with the help of an Arena Tower due to his knockback ability and high hitpoints, preserving most of his health for a counterpush.
  • He is not very good at countering tanks due to their high health, their inability to be pushed back, and his low damage per second.
  • The Executioner can be a reasonable substitute for him. Executioner counters air, but has lower health and cannot counter ground mini-tanks. Bowler's knockback effect allows it to counter many grounded units one-on-one, but it is not very effective against large, heavy troops that ignore his knockback effect, as well as aerial foes whom he cannot target.
  • While a player is defending against the Bowler, they should try not to place troops between the Bowler and their Tower, as his boulder rolls for a long distance and could lead to unnecessary Tower damage.
  • Unlike most support troops, the Bowler has far higher health and a knockback effect. This means that the Bowler cannot be countered by most Mini-Tanks such as the Knight. He is also spell-resistant, able to survive an equal level Rocket. These factors make him a powerful support troop. However, he also costs more than most support troops, and his slow attack rate makes him prone to being overwhelmed.
  • The Prince and Dark Prince are both excellent counters to an attacking Bowler. They have knockback immunities and can fight a Bowler head on without being constantly pushed backwards.
  • The Bowler will heavily slow the Ram Rider and Battle Ram, as his knockback will repeatedly reset their charges.

History[]

  • The Bowler was added to the game on 4/7/16 with the Tournaments Update.
  • On 24/8/16, a Balance Update decreased the Bowler's Elixir cost to 5 (from 6), decreased its hitpoints by 7%, and decreased its damage by 10%.
  • On 19/9/16, the September 2016 Update changed his description. The description used to say "This big blue dude digs the simple things in life - Dark Elixir drinks and throwing rocks. His massive boulders bounce off their target, landing behind for a double strike."
  • On 1/11/16, the November 2016 Update changed the Bowler's sound effects.
  • On 4/8/20, a Balance Update decreased the Bowler's sight range to 4 tiles (from 5 tiles), increased his projectile range 7.5 tiles (from 6 tiles), and increased his hitpoints by 8%.
  • The 2021 Quarter 2 Update moved the Arena to unlock the Bowler from Frozen Peak (Arena 8) to Rascal's Hideout (Arena 13).
  • On 27/10/21, the 2021 Quarter 3 Update added the level 14 Bowler.

Trivia[]

  • The Bowler is the first troop that could push back other troops with its attack, and also the first one with a piercing area damage attack.
  • The Bowler is 1 of 16 troops which first existed in Clash of Clans, the others being Minions, Archers, Goblins, Barbarians, Giant, Valkyrie, Wizard, Hog Rider, Witch, P.E.K.K.A, Wall Breakers, Golem, Balloon, Lava Hound, and the Archer Queen.
    • The Bowler was originally a troop idea for Clash Royale, but being scrapped, it was transferred to Clash of Clans. Ultimately, the Bowler was added in one of Clash Royale's updates.
      • The Bowler's description is very similar to its description in Clash of Clans. Before the September 2016 Update, the description erroneously stated the Bowler's boulders bounce, which do in Clash of Clans, but not in Clash Royale.
      • There is also a Loading Screen Hint that is similar to its card description.
      • In Clash Royale, the Bowler's bowling action resembles a more conventional underhand style of bowling (as would be seen in ten-pin bowling, for example), as opposed to in Clash of Clans, where he hurls his boulder overhand (resembling that of a bowler in cricket).
    • The Bowler's pose image above his stats screen came from his old info image in Clash of Clans.
  • The Bowler's description mentions Dark Elixir, which does not exist in Clash Royale.
  • In Clash of Clans, The Bowler has glowing red eyes, however in Clash Royale, The Bowler has normal eyes.
  • The Bowler has the 3rd highest hitpoints out of any ranged troop, only less than the Royal Giant and Lava Hound.
  • The Bowler is 1 of 6 ranged troops that cannot target air, along with Sparky, Cannon Cart, Royal Giant, Lava Hound and Bomber.
