The Art of Deploying Troops

Hey guys! Today we will discuss about “Clash of Clans and fingers” and the questions is “Are you using your fingers to deploy troops properly?”. When I started playing Clash of Clans, It took me months to control my fingers properly while raiding.


The way you drop your troops is very important. If you do it wrong (not at the right time, too fast, too slow, wrong places,…), it can ruin your attacks anytime.
Normally, when we start loving and playing this game, most of us use just 1-2 fingers to deploy troops. If you don’t know, your device screen allows you to do more than that, you can use 3-4 fingers at a time,… and even slide your hands on the screen.

 Advanced Clash of Clans deployment tactics

Deploy troops with one hand

You can use 2-3 or even 4 fingers at a time to deploy your troops quickly by tapping them all on your screen. This allows you summon a bunch of troops in a line of a side to overwhelm and distract defensive buildings easily. This manipulation is most popular and I always use it when I want to break inside via 2 directions for Storages.

To Slide, just use 2-3 fingers, hold down on the screen for 1-2 seconds then slide. By sliding, you can summon and spread your troops out faster. I always use slide when I want to take down outside buildings and attack the base from one direction. You can see more details in this video:

Deploy troops using 2 hands

I think this method is pretty new with a lot of players.

Four fingers: This is the fastest way to deploy all your troops on all sides of the base within seconds and with the best balanced distribution of troops. This method works perfectly when you want to overwhelm a large number of defensive buildings at the first layer around the base. By using this method, you also can take down all collectors and mines around the base for ultra saving your time.
Ensure that all bombs and traps outside are gone before deploying your troops. You also need to beware about the enemy Heroes because they can lure your troops and ruin your attack anytime.
To use this method, you need to use 2 hands, 2 thumbs and 2 index fingers, hold done your index fingers on the top and your thumbs on the bottom of the base then slide back and forth throughout the corners of the base, gently and swiftly.

Multi-Tap and Slide
After trying all methods above, you are ready for learning this most effective deployment methods: Use your right hand to summon troops and use your left hand to switch between different kind of troops and vice versa.

We can’t do this well at the first times for sure. Keep practicing and you will be a master finger in Clash of Clans!
