Base Design matters a lot in Versus Battles – it is responsible for half of your success and no matter how good you are at attacking, if your base gets constantly wrecked you won’t be able to get into the higher Trophy Ranges where the loot is good. I gathered together the latest solid base designs for BH5 and will also update them constantly.
All base designs here are updated with the latest Clash of Clans Update!
One thing before we start, if you use a base you find on the internet you should always try to change it a little bit. Here’s a short guide how to do it:
Builder Hall 5 Base Layouts
Before I show you the best defensive Builder Hall 5 Base Designs, I also want to recommend some articles about the Builder Base that you should read as well:

These two guides will help you beat BH5 completely without any problems 🙂
Anti 2-Star Builder Hall 5 Base Design
Archers are a common problem at Builder Hall 5 with their annoying high percentage 1-Star strategy – but this base will make you beat them easily by scoring a 2-Star attack on your own while this base can’t get 2-Stared with Archers.
Also all armies with Giants will fail as they get soaked into the Crusher from the bottom side or walk through Spring Traps from the other sides while all damage dealing troops will get stuck behind on the high hitpoint trash buildings.
One key of this base are the Archer Towers on long-range mode, so make sure to get them upgraded with the highest priority!
Diamond BH5 Design
Here’s another interesting base layout I found very helpful. The general layout in the diamond shape is common but yet still very effective as most attackers simply spam into the base and hope for the best – a good situation for you that will let them fail.
Also Dragons will try to get the Air Bomb down at the bottom but stuck at the storages that will cost them so many Baby Dragons until they can hit the Air Bombs 🙂
BH5 Anti-2 Star Base
Here you can see a really nice Builder Hall 5 setup with the traps protecting the entry points and the sideways compartments that make it hard to get any troops into the core of this base.
Also, sniping is not a good option as only half of the base is reachable from the outside so Archer have to walk long distances into the inside of the base and make the attacker fail big or much 🙂
Anti 3-Star Base Layout BH5
Getting any troops inside this base is almost impossible and so many try to clear and then send their Battle Machine for the Builder Hall – but not with this base.
The Crusher holds strong against all attacks and the point defense damage will take down the Battle Machine easily and get you a nice victory when you manage to properly attack yourself.
They forget that Giants will then start walking around the base to the front instead of hitting the walls for the inside compartment.
