Cyanide: TH9 War Base, Anti GoWiWi/GoWiPe/GiWiPe/Air

While surfing on Clash of Clans forum, I saw this Cyanide Town Hall 9 base design, which was made by Dejavux98. This base can defend your base against some most useful attack strategies like Dragons, GoWiPe and GoWiWi,… With 3 years experience of playing Clash of Clans, I think the author has done his best to design this base!


Cyanide War Base was created to stop 2 star wins from:

How does Cyanide work?

Note: In these screenshots, there are:

  • Multicolored ‘X’ = Where the troops enter the base
  • Purple Area = Defenses area that it covers
  • Yellow Arrow = Pointing out a noteworthy defense
  • Red Arrow = Troops path through the base
  • Blue = Outlining the Walls

The defense method

Theย defense method of this base is getting troops to go around your base in circles, prevent them from touching your core. This is channeling, one of the most effective defense methods for Town Hall 8 and 9. You can see exactly how it works in this screenshot:


No matter where the attackers’ troops come from, they will go around your base in a circle.

Cyanide and attack strategies:

GoWiPe: If the attacker uses GoWiPe, he will deploy the Golems first then Wall Breakers for destroying the walls to begin the battle. After clearing an area with Wizards, he will deploy his P.E.K.K.As. Like Golems, P.E.K.K.As will easily distracted the defenses in this channel and won’t come into the core, like this screenshot:


While PEKKAs and Golems are going around, the Teslas in the core will hit them till the end. Teslas will do 2x damage to the PEKKA, there are no chance for them!

Giant-Healer: With this classic strategy, the Giants will go around the outside channel and the Healer will be taken down by your Air Defenses.ย  Besides the middle compartment, With the mortars are on the outer edge, they can cover almost your base.


Air Attacks: This base does a great job with almost air attacks. The best way to stop air troops from destroying your base is spreading them out.

Almost attackers will brings some Lightning Spells to clear an Air Defense. With two Air Defenses on the opposite sides, take all them down is not easy because they will hate the ADs in the core. The Wizards Towers beside will also do a great If the attackers use Balloonion or Lavaloonion.


I will update the defense logs and the video ofย Cyanide from the Author as soon as they are ready.


  1. goholo wouldn’t be bad against this as the NE and SW corner AD are easily accessible via hogs, which will also lure your CC and leave you with your lavaloon army vs. 2ad and the WT’s definitely doable.

    Another weakness that would help the lavaloon is how easy it is to take out the queen. Sacrifice your king and you’ve got the queen no problem.

    Also, channeling isn’t all that much of a problem if you’re trying to get into the core as all you have to do is drop your attackers in waves, and funnel your troops into the middle. Also, if you can get wall breakers into the middle it would screw up the channeling you’re going for.

  2. This base… One jump spell will easily get all golems and pekkas into the center of this base and I rareley see a gowipe without jump. There is no reason they will circle, they will attack anywhere, get to center, and jump into the center No Problem.

  3. just 3 starred this base using gowivalavaloon. drop 1 golem, drop wizards to clean outside structures, drop wb, drop valks and heroes, once they get into the “ring” use jump, use the opp CC to pull your valks+heroes+wiz inside. once the valks get in the core drop 1 heal 1 rage, once the 3 ads are toast, proceed with 1 lava followed by 3 balloons behind to clear the ad and last at. then proceed to droprest of balloons in pairs and singles to clear the remaining defenses.

  4. I copied for latest war base, been attacked 4 times and gave up 2 stars. I’m #8: attackers in order, #8 ballonion for 0 stars, #7 gowipe for 1 star, #6 lavaloonion for 0 stars and #3 gowipe for 2 stars. #9 of enemy used same base but swapped wizard towers with mortars lost one star by our #7 doing lavadrag attack. So far loving base, thanks for sharing.

  5. been using this design since I upgraded to TH9 and nobody 3 stars it…well, Th10 with a 4 lava and balloons or max hogs can 3 stars this base…no TH9 has ever 3 stars this base so far…it’s been 5months already. anybody tried to squeeze the 2 air sweepers? trying to max it by putting it inside with the TH but can’t seem to perfect it…thanks again for the design…^_^

  6. will try it out and let you know how it goes! sadly i am very rushed, but that means the lower (less experienced) players attack me, so i hope it goes well! war is in 2 hours so im hoping this will ruin the other teams attack strategy on me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. HEY , I switched my war base last war, to try out the base u guys recommended, although I was hit with a useless attack I like the look of this base so thanks,, I did make 2 slight alterations just to include my sweepers but, yeah I’m happy , so thanks, there’s a link below to the replay,, thnx again, I’ll run this for a little longer
    ..Keep Clashing..

  8. this base sucks. I three star it every time i see it. So many people use it too. A simple GoHoWi destroys it no questions asked. take out the queen and cc troops with a golem wiz king and queen with a rage from the SW side and drop the hogs on either the NW or SE side with three heals. by the end of the attack there will still be a giant herd of hogs almost every time.

    • This base was created a long time ago, before the Earthquake Spell so it doesn’t have the anti-Earthquake feature of course. Also, IMO a Town Hall 10 always can 3 stars a Town Hall 9, not like TH9 Vs. Town Hall 9. Your defenses are also pretty weak as a Town Hall 9.

  9. I actually love these bases…as an attacker. Goho using (semi)asian wall can certainly 3 star these bases. Logowipe and govalo can also 3(if queen doesn’t mess up) but if not they can still be reliable (80%>destruction).

  10. luckly i got this base in my last war. my clan as well as the enemies clan is lvl8 , and the guy who used this so called ‘CYANIDE’ was 3 stared not only once, but actually twice. firstly i 3 stared it with GOHO(2 golem, 20 hogs, 12wiz) and later another of my clan mate also 3 stared it, he was learning how to do goho, and still he managed to get 3 stars…… so all people out there don’t go on this base if you want your clan to win wars.
