This is the Builder Hall 5 version of a layout structure that became more and more popular because working really effective and consists of wall paths leading towards the Builder Hall but using the poor AI to soak troops into the Crusher and the Spring Traps there and not let them directly attack the Builder Hall.

Along with the outside compartments that make it also hard to funnel all troops into the core area and a well-covered area by all defenses make this base absolutely worth using.

I really liked that base layout that is different from what you normally see and tested it with good results. The problem with the diamond base styles is that people start to know how they can beat it and an unusual layout always challenges them on another level. Here you have the Builder Hall in the middle but two sections on the sides.

The Crusher protects one entry point and the trash buildings always funnel troops away from the straight path towards the Builder Hall and there’s no chance to avoid the traps in there. Results have been pretty well with this Builder Hall 5 base.

Here’s a Builder Hall 5 layout that did quite well recently while testing it and defended effectively against ground attacks with Archers and Barbarians and also Baby Dragons.

The Builder Hall is in the center and for ground troops the Crusher position is really nasty to deal with, especially with the traps around it that makes it really frustrating to even deploy troops in waves into it correctly. Baby Dragons had problems to get enough trash buildings to get the air defenses and lost already so much of them that they couldn’t get the Builder Hall, especially with that Crusher position.

The bottom part of this base is working great against ground troops because they get soaked into the funnel and land directly in the Crusher there.

Baby Dragon attacks can get critical at BH5 but the Air Bomb at the bottom side is pretty expensive to clear with the Elixir Storage on the side and the Firecrackers are loaded on the other side so even there you have plenty of defensive power against Baby Dragons.

This BH5 base here holds up pretty well against all kinds of Barbarians or Archer attacks that come for the annoying attacks that take ages but are hard to defend at Builder Hall 5. There’s not many buildings they can reach so they will have to start making them walk longer distances and this will cost them so much time that they will time out in the long run.

This Builder Hall 5 base here has a really cool way how the traps are set up to make sure that the attacker can’t avoid it and the compartment structure is also nice to hold back any attack with mass troops easily plus the Crusher funnel on top of the base is really handy and will give the attacker a hard time.

I used this base here for quite some time now and found it to hold up well against most attacking strategies, unless the attcker has a higher Builder Hall, but in that case no base layout in the world can save you the victory… Builder Hall 5 can be brutal sometimes and the best you can do is to focus on the battles that are in your hand and try to not get demotivated too much when a BH6 attacks you and crushes your base, you simply lack of the defenses to defend that.

This BH5 base s a diamond base (don’t roll your eyes, these bases are so common because they simply work best at Builder Hall 5…), so you have an open-sided core area covered by two lines of walls.

This layout works nicely because you give the attacker a hard time to funnel troops to the core. and control where they will hit the traps.

Most of the time you will deal with Giants combined with Archers/Barbarians and occasional Minions, a mix of Barbarians and Archers without Giants or the classical mass Barbarians or mass Archer attacks.

Let’s start taking a closer look at attacks featuring Giants.

The nice thing here is that the attacker will either come from the side or the top with their Giants, sending them into the immediate death at the Crusher with the Spring Traps.

Attacking from the bottom is only possible with Bombers, otherwise, the Giants will ignore the walls completely with the double-layer and also run towards the sides.

But using Bomber will reveal one problem for the attacker (if he’s BH5 as well) – he is missing forces to crush the core area towards the Builder Hall with all the Cannons, Archer Towers etc. and chances are good that he will run out of troops before he can reach the Builder Hall.

So attacking without Giants… Still a similar problem. Attacking from the top is plain too risky and will often fail dramatically for the attacker so he needs to open up the bottom of the base with Bomber to send in his Barbarians. The problem here is that he also needs to clear the Clock Tower and Star Laboratory (costs at least 10 Barbarians) to send troops into the center of the base.

The problem here is that this won’t be enough to get the Builder Hall and percentage for the 2-Star so some troops have to clear on the sides as well leaving this a pretty risky move for the attacker to take.

Last but not least the Baby Dragon attacks that are pretty strong against Builder Hall 5 bases. Haven’t seen that much but when they attack they try to avoid the Air Bombs at the top and approach either from the side or the bottom.

Both options aren’t that well as the sides will make them run into the Air Bombs pretty soon and this will cost them too many Baby Dragons. Attacking from the bottom will send the Baby Dragons into the Firecrackers all the time so they barely make it to the Builder Hall.

The attacker’s only option is to try getting the Builder Hall with the Battle Machine but most of the there’s not enough trash destroyed so the Battle Machine will get soaked into the Crusher while getting hit by the Archer Towers.

  1. I tried the first layout but I’m not having too much success with it. Am I doing something wrong or am I just that bad at attacking?

    At the moment I’m defaulting to the predictable diamond base which is still good but it’s so common that most players know how to deal with them now

  2. Hey, sorry for this being off topic but I couldn’t find another article to post it on. Timmy, my clan is a level 2 starter and we have some th9swith lavaloonion and a couple strong th7-8. What should our war competition be? Like how many of each town hall. (10v10) Also what should we do about cc troops which are a huge part of many of your strategies. Our highest is a new th10. We don’t have any 9.75-11. Any suggestions for that?

  3. The 3rd has worked well for me. Raised about 800 trophies in the 3 Weeks I’ve been using it. Only 3* 1 in that time. Lots of 1 and 2* efforts. Earlier today I got a guy 19% but got the TH. He got me 49% not TH so I won. Would recommend this base 100%

  4. anti 2 star base… what is the chance of you always getting a 2 star… i’m builder hall 5 and i’m already attacking people with night witches

    • Battle Machine is a grind but you can expect BH7 that will get released soon to bring BM Level 15, so I’d rather take the BM to have it done quickly although the additional 5 Level won’t bring that much of a benefit in total.
      But before you do that, I recommend you to at least get your Archer Towers and Cannons to Level 6 because then they will need 1 shot less to kill Archers, Barbarians (you might also want to consider Firecrackers because they will 2-shot lvl 12 Minions instead of needing 3 shots).
      Hope this helps πŸ™‚
      PS: You will probably have some downtimes in between and try to also keep your Lab running, so I recommend you to do one of the above named defenses upgrades and then one BM Level, then one defense again and so on πŸ™‚

  5. Tried out the funnel base with full level 4 walls with most defenses maxed out for a th5 except for a lvl 2 multi mortar. Found myself getting 3 starred every other attack with the non-3 stars being at least 75% 2 stars (2400+ trophy zone). The first and last bases do look very promising though, going to see how they turn out.

  6. Hey Tim,
    I’ve tried the first two bases but I’m not impressed by this bases, tbh. Much defeats with 2 stars, demolition percentages of about 70%, so I quickly switched back to my old base.

  7. Hi I’m bh4 right now and I’m in the 1500 trophy range. I play against players who are bh 5 and bh6. They usually have 2 crushers and 2 firecrackers and I only have 1 of each. They also have battle machines. Do you have any general multiplayer tips in the builder base or any tips on attacking players who are higher builder hall levels. I have read about the GiArch strategy but I just need to upgrade my giants to get to a high enough level

  8. Hi guys, this builder base is a lot of crap, I am a max th11 and supercell need to wake up to keep us around, will not waste time on this. Waiting more than a day for attack is ridicules. I am not enjoying COC anymore for the first time in 3 years

    • U are not getting any raiding base that doesn’t mean there’s no TH12 or something but this is because almost every TH12 owner buy guard to protect their base from being attacked cuz they all want to secure their positions on global lvl moreover they dont have to do anything with gems cuz already maxed base so they only purchase is guard. So enjoy COC by playing war and by donating. This seaxy game is awesome af.

  9. I can show you my base and you can copy it. They work but your defenses need to be level 4 and up, with the exceptions of the mortar, guard post, and fireworks.

  10. I have made 3 of your designs and consistently get 3 starred. Not impressed.

    Plus – when I leave the website it directs me to an advertiser and I can’t leave it unless closing the tab. Lame

  11. The trap surprise base looks fairly easy to get a high two star on. Just put the battle machine in on the sidebar with the clock tower to distract the multi mortar and then lay in 6 giants on the right corner to bust through the wall, Andy the new archers behind them accordingly

    • I have a base that I made it works and you rarely get three stared unless the opponent has maxed troops. Also you need your archers to level 5 and canons can be level 4 but it would be better if you upgrade to level 5. Multi mortar at level 2 and higher just haven’t upgraded it in a while. Your fire works should be at level 3 and higher. Crushed should be at level 2/3 but I have mine at 1 and it still works. Your double canons need to be at level 4 or higher and gourd post can be any level. Tesla level should be level 3 or higher. I will try to show my base and you can try it. Make sure that your attacks are good too or else this base won’t work. Most people never get lower than 36% and the most is about 51% so make sure that you can pull of at least one star. Also you need the battle machine to get stars on attacks. It’ll improve your chance of winning.

  12. i actually attacked that first base and got 2 stars on it by bomber at the top and putting my giants and battle machine b4 barbs to get to the core

  13. All of them are easy 2* with bombers. Except the first one.

    The first needs to be attacked at 10-11 oclock with one giant, then two bombers to open. Another giant, a few archers. Another giant. Then when the center is open by bombers, all in with giants archers and hero. Should be around 65-80% with two stars with troops :

    Archers : 10
    Giants : 8
    Bombers : 1
    Hero : 1

    I higly recommend the first as nearly no one know how to attack this. Usually ending with 30-55% and only 1 star max.

    And one more thing : If you are under 3000 on the 19th of June, never, ever put your bombs in air mode. Never. Baby dragons are not seen enough to bother for them.
