The Best BH8 Base Layouts (January 2021)

best builder hall 8 base layouts

Versus Battles with your Builder Hall in Clash of Clans don’t just require a good and solid attacking strategy, you also need a base that covers your back – your victory is not only depending on how many stars and percentage points you can get in your attack, it has to be more than your opponent will score against your base at the same time.

If you look for a fresh and well-working base layout for your Builder Hall 8 base you’re in the perfect place.

I do frequently test, build and review base layouts for Builder Hall 8 and give them here ready for you so you can directly copy them without testing or building them yourself

I really hate those sites or videos showing you dozens of bases they copied somewhere without making any deeper explanation why they work so for this reason you will only find bases here that I have tested myself.

Bases here are updated bi-weekly so check back here to get the latest base layouts

This ring base for BH8 worked really well lately and I can tell you that the way how the perimeter is designed makes a huge difference compared to normal ring-style bases you see at BH8. In my tests I only saw successful attacks from attackers that have been a higher Builder Hall level.

This base here brings the ring base approach to BH8 and it works really effectively as attackers seem to not know how to build a proper funnel to prevent seing their troops running around the core and straight into the Crushers. My tests with this base have been really nice with only a few high-percentage 2-Stars.

This diamond-style base for BH8 worked pretty well in my recent tests and with the open sides it’s different from other diamond bases as troops will prefer entering the base from these directions so the attacker often times ruins the attacks. Make sure to place the base in the corner to limit the attacker’s ability to build a funnel.

This BH8 base here has a different approach compared to the other diamonds layouts or closed core layouts as this base uses the Crushers at the entry points to force troops into them as well as the double walls to prevent cracking open any other entrance to the core are. In the core it’s then full force all-in attacking troops versus defenses so the attacker can’t use many troops beforehand to funnel as he will really need them when entering the inside of the base.

This is a really interesting layout for BH8 with the small island in the middle, separated by a wall line in the middle. The effective thing about this base layout is that the attacker can’t get both sides and needs to decide which side to attack. Then there’s the outside perimeter that is really annoying to clear for funneling. Attacking this base is a pain, so use it.

Open diamond layout that works, but in this case the Builder Hall is not in the center to make the attacker choose to either go for the Builder Hall and miss percentage for the 2-Star or going into more defenses and risk not even getting enough percentage for the 1-Star. The outline walls make it hard for ground attacks as breaking through these multiple lines is not easy. Use this base and do solid 2-Star attacks on your own in Versus Battles and this base will deliver results.

Simple diamond shape but with the extra bulkhead layers of walls and the tactical Crusher placement, this BH7 base works really well against pretty much all attacks that you will see in the current Builder Hall 7 meta. It’s all-in defense against offense but the AI often lacks here so you’re in the advantage.

Yes, this base looks a little odd and too open but that’s the advantage. Attacking from the backside is not getting the attacker enough percentage, the sides are well-protected by the double walls and trash buildings around it and the front is simply suicide going straight into all defenses with the traps so the attacker will never make it to the Builder Hall. Maybe not the most creative BH7 base out there, but the one with the best results of all bases I have tested recently.

This is a true ring base and you should understand the mechanics from Home Village. You basically force troops to go around the core and walk into traps and get them decimated before they will even enter the core. The core is well-protected with the Crushers and the other defenses in there so even a late Battle Machine can’t take the Builder Hall easily.

Finally a fresh base layout for Builder Hall 8 and with the intersection walls this diamond variation works really effective in funneling troops into the Crushers and traps as well, making this base a really effective one against the popular attacking styles, especially ground attacks.

Also air attacks are covered, of course. Really nice one to get ready for the jump to the next BH level.

Builder Hall 8 Base – May 11th, 2020

bh8 base may 12th 2020

This Builder Hall 8 base here worked quite well recently when I tested it with really effective traps that catched many attackers quite well and messed with their attacks. The core area is full defensive power so they need to push through all of it (and very likely won’t make it) with only little option to break from the backdoor into the Builder Hall. None of the attackers that got the Builder Hall was able to get the 3-Star, so doing a decent attack yourself will help you win the Versus Battle

Builder Hall 8 Base – April 27th, 2020

bh8 base april 28th 2020

With all the diamond bases out there here’s a fresh base that uses more smaller compartments with a rung around the Builder Hall in the center and nice entry funnels with traps that work really well against ground troops. I like that there’s no direct path towards the center of the base and this messed up several attacks and got me some nice victories.

You can also switch the Double Cannons with the Crusher, this has been getting me some more victories against attackers that spam attacks

Builder Hall 8 Base – April 13th, 2020

In this base layout, you have no outstanding unique things but it combines the best practices in defending at Builder Hall 8 in Clash of Clans. I really enjoyed how the outside ring of Mines/Collectors did mess with funneling when the attacker attacks from the bottom or top side of the base (and normally that’s the side for ground attacks) and did miss creating a proper funnel for the troops first.

The inside area is full defense-stuffed with the Crushers at the entry that will cost the attacker troops, no matter what he does and with the strong defenses around the Builder Hall you have good chances to prevent a serious 3-Star, unless the attacker is a BH9 (but in this case no base can save you, to be honest). Solid layout.

Finally a fresh layout that is not diamond and it works really well, especially against Night Witches because the distances between the buildings will give you defenses some more time to deal with the bats.

The funnels in around the compartments with the Builder Hall are also helping to funnel troops and mess up with the attacker’s strategy quite well as they need to adapt because this general setup is fresh and they don’t have their strategy against this base they can run down

Builder Hall 8 Base – February 3rd, 2020

Yes, it’s a diamond base and we all know how lame they are but the cold hard truth is that these bases work good at Builder Hall 8 and this one has also some cool features that will help you win more Versus Battles.

You have the core as you know it from normal diamond-shaped bases but the top area with the double layer funnel and the tesla combined with the traps work really well against attackers that come from that side (and most do because going full-force through the bottom side is not a smart way to attack). Also the sides have open funnels that make it work well against attackers that don’t give their best (and we all know that many won’t)

Builder Hall 8 Base – February 2nd, 2020

bh8 base february 3rd 2020

Here we have another layout that has a different approach than the bases you see frequently with a double layer – we can call it a ring base. The nice thing here is that it’s not easy to get a funnel done that will lead troops into the core and the more time they spend walking on the outside, the more your traps and defenses can shred them plus time will become an issue.

By the time they get towards the inside they already lost substantial strength and won’t make it through the area that will be full of defenses.

Builder Hall 8 Base – January 13th, 2020

best bh8 base layout january 2020

This whole general base setup is nothing new and also useful at BH9 and still among those layouts proven to work best overall.

In general you have a large core area where the Builder Hall is surrounded by the hardest defenses and also high-hitpoint buildings. The sideway entries are guarded by Crushers that will put a lot of damage to any ground attack style.

The attacker basically has two options to attack this base… one is going from the Builder Hall short end but this means he will get the Builder Hall but struggle to get enough buildings down to get 50% (with a decent risk to not even get the Builder Hall, depending on his attacking strategy).

His other option is taking the long run from the opposite side – this will get him enough percentage for 1-Star but it’s hard to get the Builder Hall for the second Star – and this is what most attackers still struggle against this base. This comes down to very precise timing as well as a quantum luck after all.

You can see in the image that troops won’t make it long enough to reach the Builder Hall because they have to fight through pure rows of defenses line after line and the strongest ones are the ones last in line next to the Builder Hall when the troops are weaker anyways. And, like I said, an attack from the other side can fall short as well (easily). Troops seem to not be able to bypass the Crushers just like that and they always get soaked into them.

No matter how you play it, here and there a good attacker will pick up a higher 1-Star or very low 2-Star attack against this base, but after all this design will really help you win at Builder Hall 8. 3-Star attacks are really uncommon against this base, unless your defenses are at BH6 level or crucial defenses are under upgrade at the moment.
