Complete List of All Clash of Clans Buildings

If you spent some time building an aggressive and powerful offense, you're still missing something: a sturdy defense. This is essential in Clash of Clans.

A competent defense will prevent your village from being destroyed and protect your resources from enemies.

This is why buildings are so important in this game. Walls will be the main component of your defense and should be part of your strategy. Plus, other structures are key to resource protection, village development, and army training.

What are all the buildings in Clash of Clans? Read on to find a complete list with all the information you need!

Clash of Clans Buildings

Clash of Clans Buildings

In Clash of Clans, buildings can be broken down into four categories: defensive, resource, army, and others. Find more details about each one below.

Clash of Clans Buildings

Defensive Buildings

As mentioned before, having a strong defense is essential in Clash of Clans. Without this, you won't be able to protect your trophies and resources from your opponents. In other words, all your belongings in this game can be looted.

This is a comprehensive list of all the defensive buildings available in Clash of Clans:

  • Cannon
  • Archer Tower
  • Mortar
  • Wizard Tower
  • Air Defense
  • Hidden Tesla
  • X-Bow
  • Inferno Tower
  • Bomb Tower
  • Air Sweeper
  • Eagle Artillery
  • Scattershot
  • Builder’s Hut
  • Spell Tower
  • Ricochet Cannon
  • Giga Tesla
  • Giga Inferno (Town Hall levels 13, 14, 15, and 16 required)
  • Monolith
  • Wall

Players should see defensive buildings as the backbone of their base's defense and use them to repel attackers. However, it's important to understand that they come in different types. Each one has its strengths and weaknesses.

Resource Buildings

Resource Buildings

If you play Clash of Clans, you need resources to purchase and upgrade your assets. This game has eight different options. These are:

  • Elixir
  • Gems
  • Dark Elixir
  • Builder Gold
  • Builder Elixir
  • Capital Gold
  • Raid Medals

Except for Gems and Raid Metals, which don't have storage structures, each resource has a building. You can use it to store and regenerate them when necessary.

These are the resource buildings you can have in Clash of Clans:

  • Town Hall
  • Elixir Collector
  • Elixir Storage
  • Gold Mine
  • Gold Storage
  • Dark Elixir Drill
  • Dark Elixir Storage
  • Clan Castle or Treasury

Clash of Clans resources can be used for different purposes, such as build-ins and troop upgrades, troop training, spells, Hero upgrades, and more.

Army Buildings

Army Buildings

With these buildings, you can strengthen your attacking army, which can help you win more battles. These structures are a fundamental part of your offensive strategy and capabilities, as you can use them to house and train your troops.

These are the army buildings that you can use in Clash of Clans:

  • Army Camp
  • Barracks
  • Dark Barracks
  • Spell Factory
  • Laboratory
  • Dark Spell Factory
  • Pet House
  • Workshop
  • Blacksmith
  • Archer Queen Altar
  • Barbarian King Altar
  • Royal Champion Altar
  • Grand Warden Altar

Other Buildings

Other Buildings

Besides those mentioned above, your village can house other buildings. Each one can affect your characters in a different way. Below are the most important ones:

  • Boat: Although it looks like just a ship, it serves as a gateway to the Builder Base, connecting it with the Home Village to bring you to the area where you can improve your offensive skills.
  • Airship: By becoming a bridge between the Home Village and the Clan Capital, the Airship allows players to travel from one location to the other.
  • Forge: With this building, you can produce Capital Gold automatically. Although it focuses on this element, the structure can accept resources from other buildings, such as the Builder Base.
  • Decorations: They’re aesthetic elements that you can use to personalize your village. Torches, cornflower beds, rally flags, and weather vanes are some examples.
  • Obstacles: While they aren't technically buildings, these rocks, trees, and bushes can hinder your village's development. However, some may reward you with other resources or points when removed.
  • Loot Cart (appears occasionally): It's a small cart that appears from time to time around your village and offers a small amount of free resources. This item often contains 20% of the loot a player lost after a defense.
  • Strongman's Caravan (appears occasionally but needs Town Hall Level 7): When this traveling showman appears, you can play a fun minigame (Clan Games) where you can test your skills or complete tasks and earn rewards.
  • Super Sauna: The Super Sauna can be used to boost certain troops, transforming them into Super Troops to make your army more resilient in battle and improve your chances of winning.
  • B.O.B.'s Hut: It’s a hunt that doubles as an additional Builder by allowing the B.O.B. to stay there.

Final Thoughts

Buildings are essential for your gaming experience and can even impact the value of your account. The main ones participate in the battle and can define the outcome of combat, while others only enhance your village's functionality. However, they’re all key to customizing your Clash of Clans experience.
