Complete Update List for Builder Base Update

The Clash of Clans May Builder Base update is finally live in Clash of Clans. This update added a whole new village, the Builder Base! Here are all of the update features that comes with this new update, with new update articles coming soon explaining more of the Builder Base.

Clash of Clans Builders Base May 2017 Update

New Features

Thanks to the Master Builder’s talented touch, you’ll see interesting twists on familiar buildings, such as:

  • The Archer Tower’s switch toggles between fast attack or long range.
  • The Multi Mortar’s multi-barreled attack is tough for troops to dodge

New Buildings

He’s also dreamed up some exciting new buildings! These brand new additions include:

  • Crusher: A powerful new defense that does exactly what it sounds like— crush enemies!
  • Push Trap: Scatter attacking armies by tossing troops in a direction of your choosing.
  • Gem Mine: Collect gems over time! Upgrade it to increase its output.
  • Clock Tower: Boost the speed of everything in the Builder Base, from build time to resource mining!

New Abilities

The crystallized elixir found on this side has given familiar faces a new look with new tricks that they can use in combat! Upgraded troops gain powerful special abilities, such as:

  • Sneaky Archer: “Cloak” makes her invisible to enemy defenses for a short period of time.
  • Boxer Giant: “Power Punch” makes his first attack do huge damage!

New Troops

The Master Builder has harnessed the power of this new resource to train up new troops. For example:

  • Bomber: Tosses big bombs that can blow up several buildings at once.
  • Cannon Cart: A four-wheeling fortification brought to the front line.

New Hero

Some heroes are born, others are built. Once unlocked at Builder Hall 5, the Master Builder will join the fight in his Battle Machine! Upgrade this mechanical monster to level 5 to unlock its “Electric Hammer” ability.

New Battle Mode: Versus Battle

Introducing a brand new way to fight: Versus Battle! This new battle style lets you take on opponents in a head-to-head attacking competition! Similar to Clan Wars, both competitors attack one another and the best attack wins the prize. Resources won’t be lost on defense.

Win three Versus Battles per day to get the biggest loot payout, then continue battling for new Versus Trophies. Follow the competition on the new leaderboard!

New Game Mechanics

The Builder Base’s setup has ease of management top of mind. Over here troops train automatically, Walls come in segments and you cannot be attacked while away.

Troops are trained in groups and each Army Camp holds one group at a time. Upgrade troops to fit more units per camp and build more camps to diversify your ranks. With no Master Wizards around spells haven’t made it to these shores, so take advantage of your troops’ special abilities instead!

Where Old Meets New

Leverage the Master Builder’s expertise to enhance your home village. Once your Cannon is at a high enough level, you’ll see a “Gear Up” option when you tap on it. Gearing Up this defense will give it the same awesome abilities as its Builder Base counterpart: the Double Cannon!

“Gear Up” is only available when the Master Builder isn’t busy in the Builder Base. It’s a long trip, so make sure he’s free. Keep an eye out for more Gear Up options in the future, too!

So this update is so awesome so far from how long I’ve been playing it! I personally love what Clash of Clans has done with the new Builder Base and am excited to see more updates to it in the future. Thanks for reading, looking for more articles on Builder Base in the future and comment down below your first thoughts on this brand new May update for Clash of Clans!

  2. I hope bomber isn’t as weak as in clash royale, everyone is saying that bomber needs a buff in clash royale, but I think it’s great, maybe this bomber need a nerf instead……

  4. There is actually so much more! You should put the double cannon up in the new features section along with the multi-mortar and the new archer tower. Also, there are a lot more special abilities, like the barbarian’s rage effect when placed. There is also a new trap, a bomb with fairly far range but low damage.
