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 BH7 and will also update them constantly.
All base designs here are now up to date 🙂
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 7 Base Layouts
Before I show you the best defensive Builder Hall 7 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 BH7 completely without any problems 🙂

Builder Base 7 Layout
I like layouts that are not like the 90% of designs you see all the time and this one here has a not only interesting and new but also an effective layout that works well defending your base and Builder Hall.
Builder Hall 7 Base
Another base design that works effectively for Builder Base 7 with a multilayer layout that will work basically by forcing the attacker to go full forces through everything or only get a 1-Star or very bad 2-Star by coming from the back.

BH 7 Layout
This kind of layouts have become the most effective ones where the Builder Hall will require a whole army to be taken down but then there’s not much left to get the extra percentage to get the 2-Star at all or even with a decent percentage.

Builder Base 7 Layout
This is the Builder Hall 7 adaption of a popular BH8 layout where the Builder Hall is protected in the middle by the Air Bombs and Roaster, protected by the Crushers and all the other point defenses beforehand. To get to the Builder Hall, the attacker will need to go thought either pretty much all defenses from the right side (won’t make it) or might get the Builder Hall from the backside but will lose the whole army and won’t have enough percentage for the 2-Star.
Builder Base 7 Anti 2-Star Base Layout
The Builder Hall is protected by the extra ring of walls that will funnel ground troops, including a clearing Battle Machine in air attacks, around the Builder Hall to prevent the 2-Star – the attacker has to make sure to get the Builder Hall down with the air troops or can’t make the 2-Star, this is what makes this base quite effective.
Anti Bomber Builder Base 7 Layout
The extra wall pieces at the outer ring will keep Bombers busy and distract them from the inside while the attacking troops will get cleared off. If you think it’s easy to get the Giant Cannon from the back with a bunch of Minions, you will see that this is a lot more expensive than you thought as they will always go a little bit to the side where they get in range of the air defenses so it need a whole army slot for this single defense.

Diamond BH7 Base Layout
Diamond bases will never stop (probably), but they still work, esepcially with the strongest defenses protecting the backside that will cost a big part of the army to get the Builder Hall and can prevent enough percentage to prevent a 2-Star.
Good Builder Hall 7 Base
This base is an adaption of the famous layout with the more exposed Builder Hall but centralizes the Builder Hall a little bit more to make the 2-Star more difficult to get.

Anti Nightwitch BH7 Base Layout
This base is working great against Night Witch combinations (including Night Witch/Minion) as the arrangement of defenses will take away the advantage of the long distance away from them – all important defenses are in the middle so the Bats get taken down early and the Beta Minions will waste their longshot against the trash on the outside.
Anti-Everything Anti-2-Star Builder Hall 7 Base
This base works against many different compositions with the double layer design that will shot down Bomber or mass Archer attacks. The Roaster & Air Bombs will take down Night Witch attacks and this will give you a great defensive part in your versus battles at BH7.
Anti Ground Builder Hall 7 Base
This base works great against ground attacks with the Crushers at the bottom and the compartments on top guarded by the Giant Cannon and the offset Guard Post that will drag attacking troops to confusing and ruining funneling.
Amazing BH7 Base
The reason why this base here is on the list is that it uses a completely different defending approach with the four independant compartments that will drag Bombers and Giants either away from the core or directly into the traps.
The core itself in this BH7 base is just stuffed with all the strong defenses that get supported by the leftover Archer Towers in long-range mode and the Cannons that make this base a nightmare.

BH7 Anti 2-Star Base Layout
This base here comes along with a hard to control huge core area that is surrounded by the compartments that make it hard ti funnel and also slows down Bomber effectivity as they will use their ability on the most outside spot that won’t break the whole compartment open.
You can see in the replays that this base work great against Night Witches 🙂
Anti Witch Builder Hall 7 Base
Night Witches are extremely popular at BH7, but this base will put attackers into a tough spot with the Air Bombs on one side of the Builder Hall and the Roaster on the other side – both in tough positions that can’t simply be tanked.
BH7 Ring Base
Not a single Builder Base Layout update without a ring base, huh? Well, they work and are successful, so no reason to say more.
PS: put this base directly in the corner to make it more powerful 🙂

Anti-2-Star Builder Hall 7 Base Design
Let’s start off with this solid base that will help you prevent getting 2-Stared with a simple but effective layout basic concept.
Either the attacker will have to go through the whole stuff of buildings and defenses from the bottom and will not reach & get the Builder Hall down as there is no way to get the Builder Hall from the back with the Battle Machine – this will result in a high percentage 1-Star.
The other option is going for the Builder Hall from the back, but getting enough percentage for the 2-Star isn’t that easy neither -> 1-Star or low 2-Star.
For some extra spice I recommend you to fkip this base 🙂
Diamond BH7 Design
This second base is also working great with the Giant Cannon as the key element of defense.
No matter from what side the attacker chooses to approach the base, the Giant Cannon is not reachable and will deal its deadly damage all the way throught the whole attack and prevent any big defeat.
The Roaster and the Air Bombs take care that the attacks from the back going straight for the Builder Hall can get stopped early enough that even a lost Builder Hall won’t end up in a big tragedy for you.
The front side of the Builder Hall is protected well by the Crusher that will stop either the Barbarians or, in case the attacker wants to send in the Battle Machine at the end, the Battle Machine.
Nice one 🙂

Great BH7 Layout against Barbarians
This base uses the vertical wall segments at the back to confuse the Bomber AI as they will start throwing their bombs against the closest wall piece. This will result in Barbarians smashing walls and getting taken down by defenses and can mess up an attack.
The Giant Cannon is here centralied building and with the Cruser, Bomb Factory, Builder Hall it’s surrounded by all the high hitpoint defenses that will make it extremely hard to take it down before the attack is over.
You can see in the replays how often attacker with different troops get frustrated by the different sides of the base 🙂
Builder Hall 7 Base Anti 3-Star
This base has a setup that you don’t see that often and the defensive concept behind it is also convincing.
The inside area with all the splash defenses is protected by the bulkheads of the storages, Clock Tower and Lab with the high hitpoints that will slow down attacking forces long enough for the tough defenses in the core to build up their damage.
Alright, that’s it – take one of the bases above and you’re good to go for Builder Hall 7 with a solid defending concept.
But please keep in mind that they are all with well-upgraded defenses so you might see not the exact same results if you just upgraded to BH7 🙂
