Clash Royale Tower Troops Guide: Introduction, Upgrading, List of Cards, and more

What is the new card type?

Tower Troops have now arrived with the December 2023 update of Clash Royale. The Clash Royale 2024 roadmap had previously discussed this new card type coming to the game, but we already have one card available now with the Tower Princess. So, let us learn about this new gameplay change, and the possibilities to explore with this Clash Royale Tower Troops Guide.

Clash Royale Tower Troops Guide: Overview


Tower Troops are like a fresh addition to Clash Royale. You’ll find them in the Cards tab, right where your Card Collection hangs out. These troops are special because they’re all about defense, stationed on top of your Crown Towers.

The interesting part? Your opponent won’t have a clue about these Tower Troops until the Battle officially begins. Along with this change, the Princess Towers are now renamed Crown Towers.


Every Tower Troop brings its distinct ability, adding a unique flavor to your Clash Royale strategy. Just like your regular cards, Tower Troop comes with rarities and can be sorted according to it. Outside your regular battle, Tower Troops claim a dedicated card slot in your Battle Deck since they are a mandatory part of your Battle Deck. which can be swapped with other cards as soon as they are launched.

Collecting and Upgrading

Tower Troops can undergo upgrades using a combination of Cards and Gold. Tower Troop cards are specifically obtainable from Tower Troop Chests. While Wild Cards and Magic Books don’t apply to Tower Troop upgrades, Magic Coins can be utilized to offset the gold upgrade expenses.

Tower Troops follow a straightforward leveling rule as they can’t surpass the level of your King Tower. Unlike cards that can be over-leveled, if your King Tower is at Level 12, your Tower Troops can’t go beyond Level 12. Let me explain in simpler terms, no Level 13 Tower Troops if your King Tower is at Level 12.
