Clash of Clans Siege Machines Explained – How to Unlock, Tips, and more


Here is a quick guide on how to unlock the Siege Machines in Clash of Clans, the ultimate defense wrecker. There are six siege machines in the game.

Clash of Clans is a Massive online multiplayer strategy game. The game has an RPG element with quite a lot of grinding elements. Supercell’s first breakthrough game that took over the world, Clash of Clans, has become a legend in the mobile game industry with millions of downloads.

The game has progressed with time and rolled out Town Hall levels with additional content and new troops and spells. Siege Machines are a TH 12 addition, created from the workshop. They are the ultimate wrecking machines that create havoc in your opponent’s bases.

How to Unlock Siege Machines in Clash of Clans?

You can unlock siege machines at Town Hall level 12, with a new building called the Workshop. You can level up the workshop up to 3 levels in TH 12. Each level of the workshop unlocks a new type of Siege machine. The very first Siege Machine you unlock is the Wall Wrecker.

You can also get early access to the Siege machines via Clan donations as long as your clan castle is level 6. So, at TH10+ you can request for siege machines from your clan members.

Keep in mind they are all spell immune, this is to stop them from breaking the game. These machines are already pretty sturdy on their own and adding spells to them would just topple the game mechanics.

This is also like the name suggests a blimp for battle, unlike your regular blimps it is made to absorb attacks.

The wall leveler

As the name suggests this siege machine launches logs like The Log from Clash Royale. Logs are preferred to be used against walls, the range of logs is 20 tiles or 4 buildings.

The latest siege machine

This is also one of the diminishing health siege machines. The flame flinger targets defenses so it is more of an assistant to your attacks. Flame Flinger does area splash damage making the spot where the flames drop deal damage. Much like a mortar, this has a lot of range and the damaged area has a burning effect.
