Hey Clashers! Its Clash for Dummies here with a brand new post. Now today I will be asking “are X-Bows really as good as they seem?” But what, X-Bows are supposed to be the BEST defense in the game except inferno towers?! So today I’m going to delve into this and see if X-Bows really are THAT good!
So when you see TH9s and TH10s, chances are that they have their X-Bows in the center of their base. But, why? This is caused by a psychological effect in which they automatically think that because X-Bows are unlocked so late in the game that they are naturally the best defense. Lets pair a level 4 X-Bow against a level 13 archer tower and lets see which is better!
X-Bow Archer Tower
Cost- 8,000,000 7,500,000
DPS- 80 98
Hitpoints- 2,700 930
So the archer tower actually beats the X-Bow in two of the three categories. The 500,000 extra cost isn’t a huge deal, but 18 more DPS?! The X-Bow does have about 3 times as many hit points as the archer tower though. But what if we stack the long-considered worst defense in Clash of Clans, the hidden tesla against the mighty X-Bow
X-Bow Hidden Tesla
Cost- 8,000,000 5,000,000
DPS- 80 99
Hitpoints- 2,700 850
Wow, so once again the X-Bow loses in 2 out of the 3 categories. This time it get trounced in cost, and gets beat by even more in DPS. It seems like all the X-Bow has going for it is its hitpoints! Are hidden teslas actually better?
Are X-Bows Worth the Cost?
So we finally get to the whole point of this article! Obviously you should buy X-Bows and and continuously upgrade throughout your Clash of Clans career. But should you upgrade them before archer towers and teslas? I say NO!!!
Lets get into some more math. If you divide cost by DPS you will find out that for every 1 Damage per Second, it costs you 10,000 gold for the X-Bow. But if we do the same thing for a tesla, it costs only 5,050 for 1 DPS. That means teslas are nearly DOUBLE as valuable as X-Bows. In my eyes, X-Bows are overrated and other defenses should be upgraded first! Next time think first about upgrading one!
