Everyone who plays Clash of Clans longer than just one year knows that each year in October, Supercell celebrates Halloween in Clash of Clans with a special event that features a Halloween theme and a seasonal obstacle – this year however, Supercell just seems to follow their recent trend from the Christmas Event and the anniversary celebration to include a lot more in these events with seasonal troops and much more.
Pumpkin Barbarians & Giant Skeleton Troops
This time we will see two seasonal troops for Halloween, the Pumpkin Barbarian and the Giant Skeleton (for those of you being familiar with Clash Royale not an unknown troop).
I was wrapping up everything you need to know about them.
The Pumpkin Barbarian is basically nothing else than a Barbarian with an extra shield. The Pumpkin will absorb the first hit and then fall off. I know that some of you might have seen some leaked material in the past days about it and many people say they are wrong because of the low hitpoints of the Pumpkin Barbarian, but that’s just the hitpoints of the Pumpkin 🙂
This stuff is all in the game files so it’s 99% save to believe it will come in the next weeks.
How about gameplay? Well, here’s how this new seasonal troop will look like when played in the game:
To be honest not that overwhelming, especially for those of use who are in the end game but a nice addition to make some Halloween flair in Clash of Clans.
This one here is really interesting – it’s basically a tank that carries a big bomb that will explode when the Giant Skeleton gets “killed” (well, as far as a skeleton can die).
This bomb deals massive damage, able to take down a complete structure like spell factories which can make it a great addition to gameplay.
Here’s what happens when a Giant Skeleton gets killed:
I’m really looking forward how this will work with existing troop compositions and this might be the first seasonal troop that I really want to have permanently in the game!
Halloween 2017 Obstacle
The 2017 seasonal obstacle is no secret since it was in some Sneak Peek material last week – it’s a skull that looks a lot like a Baby Dragon skull:
Like every other Halloween, it will cost 25k Elixir to remove and reward 75k Elixir, but I’m sure that most of us just want to keep one on the outside ring of the village instead 😀
In addition, I also expect another troop 1 Gem boost period – we got that in every past Halloween so it would be a surprise if it wouldn’t happen this time.
