Best BH8 Base Layouts – Builder Base 8 Designs

Every month you will find here the most-recent and well-working Builder Hall 8 Base Layouts to directly use.

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 πŸ™‚

Without wasting any more time, here are the bases:

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.

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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.

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)

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 πŸ™‚ In the gallery you will see some examples of attacks with Night Witches and Cannon Carts.

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.

  1. So dumb question, Im trying to set this base layout but when doing the very low corner with the BM, I just cant get the walls to match symmetrically. Either there is an empty spot on the corner or they miss match leaving one side longer than the other

  2. 2 stars for this base bombers, 2 sets of giants 2 sets of cannons 1 pec and your battle bot.
    drop 2 giants to take heat off the 2 bombers once they clean out some walls drop 2 more giants and 2 cannons behind them to clean out resources than rest of bombers and rest of giants follow with pec and battle bot to each side of bottom follow with rest of cannons…. Bob is your uncle nice 2 star… I will say a lot of people have read this cause I am trashing this base all over the place….. not bad though


    • ???? that’s right, if you know how to attack it you can get it done, still, I’d say with 10M+ active players and the number of people visiting this page to use the design you’re still ahead of most of the players πŸ˜‰
      Anyway, I will update the base designs in the coming weeks… πŸ™‚

  3. when the new upload comes out allowing you to leave a link to copy these straight into coc can you add it please.

    • I will as much as possible πŸ™‚ The thing is, I don’t know if it’s working if you set up a BH4 base with my BH8/BH9 account, but we will see how it works. I personally want to use this feature that’s for sure πŸ™‚

  4. What about Super PEKKA attacks? I’m seeing a lot of those attacks. Will it defend against different Super PEKKA variation attacks?

    • Yes, Super PEKKAs aren’t that crazy powerful anymore, especially if you max out your mega tesla. They can’t really funnel into the core (where their exlosion would deal massive destruction) and the teslas are in the complete center so no sniping possible here as well.
      Also, most people that use Super PEKKA aren’t the good attackers that have the scouting and timing skills to use something like Drop/Minions or Cannon Cart combinations properly (doesn’t mean that any attacker user the pekkas is bad, but it’s more prefered by bad attackers because they can spam them and still get their 1-Star with brute force).
      Hope this helps πŸ™‚

  5. Hey when will see new bh8 base cause every Base try the new giant strat wrecks it. My defense levels or 7&8 they are almost max. Major defense’s are max just towers and Tesla remaining

      • Hey bro the high anti 2 base doesn’t work efficiently because I have max defenses and the giant and cannon cart attack wreck it/ 3 star it 4 time in a (row). This is killing builder base. Although it’s almost dead already

  6. I think something changed. On the home page when i scroll down and try to load the second set of posts, it just keeps doing the loading circle thing forever. I’ve tried on many different devices. Ive tried on data and different wifi and it still doesnt load more posts. Anybody else having this problem?


  7. The Labyrith Is Awesome Gonna Try It. I Just Hit BH8 3 Days Ago And Have Constructed The 6th Army Camp And Mega Tesla, Saving Elixir To Upgrade Lab.

  8. Hello….i mistakenly made leader to an inactive id…..i want to get my leadership back.. Please please help me…..

  9. I used that top base. The “Anti-3-star” supposed base… The first attack against me, my opponent scored 96% and the only reason he didn’t manage 3 stars was that he timed out. What a load of rubbish these bases online are. Trying to convince people that the bases are awesome. They are terrible. My own base designs work better and whenever I come on a site like this and think, okay, I’ll try one of these bases and see if it’s better, I get owned by attacks my own base defended against fine. You’re not an expert at all. These bases don’t do the job and I would suggest anyone else looking for a base design looking to improve their defence, wants to look elsewhere.

  10. In an effort to keep a large area clear in my Builder Base, I bought bonfires and targets and stone paths and trees, etc. Now when I want to create a new base (using layout editor) and remove all, I have to replace all those items before I can even test the base. Any ideas or shortcuts? Sometimes the bases just don’t work well, and it wastes a lot of time putting all those things back!

    • Attacking powet at BH8 is really high and with bases it is never about that you can stop every single attack -> it’s more like some will crush your base and you need to accept that but it’s about how much the average opponent get πŸ™‚
      Anyway, they are fresh bases after the release and I will update them soon πŸ™‚

  11. hola Timmy queria saber cuando sacaras mas diseΓ±os en el taller de constructor para lvl8 , podrias visitar nuestro clan para practicar #QJVQVRPC πŸ˜‰
