“It's a Skeleton party in the sky, until all the balloons pop... then it's a Skeleton party on the ground!”

The Skeleton Barrel card is unlocked from Spooky Town (Arena 12). It is a flying, building-targeting troop with low hitpoints. It is a spiked black barrel with a white skull printed on the front tied to three team-colored balloons. Once it reaches a building or it is destroyed, the barrel drops, dealing area damage, and spawns seven Skeletons in a circle. A Skeleton Barrel card costs 3 Elixir to deploy.

Strategy[]

  • The Log, Zap, Barbarian Barrel and the Giant Snowball are the best spells to counter the Skeletons from the Skeleton Barrel since its death damage does not deal too much damage, and these cheap spells can easily destroy all of the Skeletons for a positive Elixir Trade. The player must account for the 0.5 second animation where neither the Barrel nor the Skeletons are considered as entities; if the spell is cast during this phase it will not affect the Skeletons. Since small spells are a cheap and efficient way to clean up the Skeletons, one should consider running cards to bait these spells such as Goblin Gang, Bats, or Skeletons to stretch the opponent's counters thin.
  • Clone is especially effective with the Skeleton Barrel due to the clone's displacement away from the original making it very difficult or impossible to hit the Skeletons that spawn from both with only one spell. It will also push the original Skeleton Barrel slightly to the front, allowing it to connect to the Princess Tower earlier, as well as bypass certain building placements.
  • If the player does not have spells available, area damage troops can negate most of the damage down by the spawned Skeletons. In particular, Magic Archer, Executioner, and Bowler are effective at cleaning up most, if not all of the Skeletons in one or two attacks. Although it is usually a negative Elixir trade, the troops can be used in a counterattack.
  • Minions can easily prevent it from connecting to the Crown Tower, minimizing the damage that the spawned Skeletons will do afterwards. Place them directly on the Skeleton Barrel's path to further lessen the chances of connecting.
  • During the 0.5 second animation time, the Skeleton Barrel can still be displaced by Tornado. This quirk means that the opponent/defender can pull a Skeleton Barrel close enough to their King's Tower to activate it. However, a few Skeletons will still aggro onto the Princess Tower and take up to a tenth of its health.
  • The Electro Spirit is a very good counter to the Skeleton Barrel, as it will chain onto all 7 Skeletons, providing a +2 Elixir trade. Note that the Spirit will not prevent death damage, and be careful with timing, as if you place it too early, the Spirit will target the Barrel and not the Skeletons. It is also recommended to drop the Electro Spirit away from the Death Damage, to prevent it from being stunned from the knockback of the Skeleton Barrel. Fire Spirit can easily counter Skeleton Barrel if placed at the right time and right placement for a positive Elixir trade of 1.
  • Similar to the Goblin Barrel, the Skeletons will only spawn when the barrel falls to the ground and splits open. However, unlike the Goblin Barrel, the Skeleton Barrel deals area damage when the Skeletons spawn. This damage is enough to one-shot any unit with as much or less health than Spear Goblins, which prevents the opponent from preemptively deploying these types of troops at the barrel's landing point.
  • The Skeleton Barrel synergizes well with the Goblin Barrel. When used together simultaneously, it can be very difficult or even impossible for the opponent to hit the spawned units with one spell, and may possibly force them to use another spell or to counter one of the two cards inefficiently. The Skeleton Barrel can also tank a few shots for the spawned Goblins.
  • A Skeleton Barrel should almost never be ignored, as it would bring an equally levelled, fully healthy Princess Tower down below half of its hitpoints for only 3 Elixir.
  • An excellent synergy is with Ice Spirit and Zap. The Skeleton Barrel's death damage combined with an Ice Spirit will take out Goblins and Minions and with Zap, it will take out Archers and Dart Goblins. If the opponent is caught off-guard, this can inflict heavy damage to their Crown Towers. This well-synchronized combination can help protect cards such as the Hog Rider and the Lava Hound.
  • The Skeleton Barrel excels at distracting the Inferno Tower and the Inferno Dragon for a tank since the Skeleton Barrel targets buildings and drops several Skeletons which they cannot deal with independently. This can force out a card that the opponent doesn't want to play, such as a Valkyrie or Zap. However, be sure to time the tank placement; the tank may be targeted by the Inferno in the 0.5 seconds that the Skeletons do not exist, making it a less effective counter. Against the Inferno Dragon, it will also knock it back, for some extra retargeting.
  • The Skeleton Barrel has excellent synergy with Miner where the Skeleton Barrel initially tanks the tower hits for Miner while it chips the tower, and after the barrel dies, the tower will lock onto the Miner in the 0.5 seconds that neither the barrel nor Skeletons exist. Other cheap tanks such as Ice Golem and Knight can tank for the Skeletons like the Miner, however, chip damage is not as guaranteed. It can also apply pressure because the two troops are attacking the tower from the front and the back.
  • The Skeleton Barrel works very well with a Balloon as the Skeleton Barrel can quickly push the Balloon towards a Princess Tower thanks to its melee range and Fast move speed. To do this, tap the Balloon while hovering the Skeleton Barrel, and then tap twice quickly to deploy them. The Balloon will spawn in front of the Skeleton Barrel and immediately begin rushing the tower. If the opponent uses knockback spells on the combo, they won't have those spells to address the Skeletons spawned by the barrel.
    • If the Balloon is not in hand, but is next in the card queue, you can deploy the Skeleton Barrel further back and then drop the Balloon in front of it as it approaches the bridge.
    • This is less effective when the combo is done at the edges of the arena, as the Skeleton Barrel will move past the Balloon after pushing it halfway.
    • If the player has another sufficient anti-air card for the Balloon, the Bomb Tower can be used to specifically take out the Skeleton Barrel thanks to its high health, area damage, and ground-only targeting.
    • They can also work seperately. Due to sharing similar counters, the Skeleton Barrel can be used as a bait for counters so that the Balloon can be placed afterwards in the other lane without being threatened. However, a building or Tornado can easily bring them back together.
  • The Cannon or Tombstone are the most Elixir-efficient building counters to the Skeleton Barrel, neutralizing the barrel for an equal Elixir trade with the help of a Crown Tower. Bomb Tower or Furnace can also work well, but result in a negative Elixir trade if the Skeleton Barrel is the only card countered. However, the former will often stay alive to defend a few other troops and the latter's Fire Spirit can chip the Tower.
  • A risky play is to start the match with a Skeleton Barrel at the bridge. The opponent might not react in time to it and the spawned Skeletons will deal a lot of damage to the Princess Tower. Even if they react quick enough, it will still allow the user to scout the opponent's deck.

History[]

  • On 31/10/17, the Skeleton Barrel became obtainable by achieving 9 wins in the Halloween Draft Challenge.
  • From 11/11/17 through 14/11/17, the Shop had a special offer that Arena 6+ players could buy up to six Giant Chests at the normal price that guarantees at least 40% of total cards (or 50% of all common cards) to be Skeleton Barrel.
  • The Skeleton Barrel was added to the game on 17/11/2017.
  • On 12/12/17, a Balance Update allowed the Skeleton Barrel to deal Death Damage.
  • On 12/2/18, a Balance Update decreased the number of spawned Skeletons to 6 (from 8).
  • On 25/4/18, the Clan Wars update increased the number of spawned Skeletons to 7 (from 6).
  • On 5/11/18, a Balance Update increased the Skeleton Barrel's death damage by 62%.
  • On 15/4/19, the Trophy Road Update added an extra Star Level.
  • On 7/4/20, a Balance Update increased the Skeleton Barrel's speed to 快(90) [from 中等(60)] but decreased its hitpoints by 15%.
  • On 9/12/20, a Balance Update decreased the Skeleton Barrel's hitpoints by 19%.
  • The 2021 Quarter 2 Update moved the Arena to unlock the Skeleton Barrel from Builder's Workshop (Arena 6) to Spooky Town (Arena 12).
  • On 27/10/21, the 2021 Quarter 3 Update added the level 14 Skeleton Barrel.

Trivia[]

  • The Skeleton Barrel was playable in the Mirror Challenge on 17/10/17, before its release date, as an unintended glitch. Supercell fixed this glitch with a maintenance break.
    • In the Mirror Challenge, the Skeleton Barrel was shown to spawn all Skeletons in a random pattern. However, this was changed after its general release to spawn the Skeletons in a circular formation.
  • The Skeleton Barrel is 1 of 14 cards associated with Skeletons, including the Bomber, Skeleton Army, Witch, Tombstone, Bomb Tower, Giant Skeleton, Balloon, Guards, Graveyard, Wall Breakers, and Skeleton Dragons, and, of course, Skeletons.
  • The Skeleton Barrel has the same deploying sound as the Balloon, but with a slightly higher pitch.
  • The Skeleton Barrel and the Royal Giant are the only Common Cards that only target Buildings.
  • The Skeleton Barrel loses 1 balloon for each third of its total hitpoints depleted. That means a Cloned Skeleton Barrel only has one Balloon to start with. These balloons do not regenerate if the Skeleton Barrel is healed up to at least one-third (or two-thirds) health.
  • The Skeleton Barrel's visual appearance resembles Clash of Clans' Air Bombs and its projectiles. However, they function very differently. The barrel itself is stylized very similarly to Level 6 and 7 Balloons from Clash of Clans.
  • The Skeleton Barrel could be inspired by Clash of Clans' Drop Ship, which also does damage and summons skeletons when destroyed. Both are called "Skeleton Balloon" if the language is set to Chinese.
  • The Skeleton Barrel is 1 of 9 troop cards that inspired a troop in Clash of Clans, along with the Miner, the Baby Dragon, the Ice Wizard, the Bomber, the Night Witch, the Giant Skeleton, the Battle Ram, and the Ice Golem.
  • In Clash of Clans, the Skeleton Barrel in battle looks identical to an enemy Skeleton Barrel in Clash Royale. Unlike its Clash of Clans counterpart, the Skeleton Barrel in Clash Royale attacks only buildings.
  • The Skeleton Barrel is 1 of 3 cards related to barrels, alongside the Goblin Barrel and Barbarian Barrel.
    • It is the only barrel-related card to be a troop, while the other two are spells.
    • The Skeleton Barrel is also the only barrel-related card to have a Common rarity, with the other two being Epic.
