Cannon Basic Information

As your first defensive structure, Cannons play a big role when just starting out and continue to do so throughout your Clash of Clans career. This is because they will usually be the first units you upgrade to their low cost and quick upgrade times.

(In-Game Description)

“Cannons are great for point defense. Upgrade cannons to increase their firepower, but beware that your defensive turrets cannot shoot while being upgraded!”

One of the best things about a cannon is that it can shoot at any Ground target coming its way from 9 tiles away. Cannon damage is usually strong enough to take out Barbarians, Archers, Goblins, and Wizards in only one or few shots, depending on the level of the Cannon and units.

However, there is a very obvious Cannon weakness: it cannot attack air troops. This means that without protection from an Archer Tower or other structure capable of shooting at airborne enemies, a Cannon will be unable to defend itself.

Cannon Defense Strategy

The Cannon upgrade cost is always lower than other defensive structures of the same level, making it a good option for solidifying your defense. But when it comes to Cannon vs Archer Tower, only one is able to attack air troops. So even though cannon upgrade prices are lower, leave them for after you’ve invested in better Archer Towers in order to avoid getting wrecked by an aerial assault. Of course, whether you upgrade a cannon or archer tower first becomes less important at later levels when you have several of both.

Cannons are perfect for the outer perimeter of your village as they have a great rate of fire and good range. This means they can take out Wall breakers as well as any other oncoming units at a distance. Just make sure to always pair Cannons with structures like Air Defenses, Wizard Towers, or Archer Towers so they don’t get taken out easily by air troops

Cannon Offensive Strategy

Since Cannons damage only ground troops, they can easily be taken out with Minions, Balloons, or other air units if they aren’t near a defensive structure that can attack aerial enemies. Since they are also only capable of shooting one unit at a time, one Giant and a few Archers (or something similar) is usually all it takes to get rid of it.
