The Mega Knight is one of the newest cards in Clash Royale. He has a myriad of new things that we haven’t seen before like his spawn stomp and his unique jumping attacks. In this tutorial we teach you how to use and counter this new card in Clash Royale.
Using the Mega Knight
The mega knight spawns with a stomp that deals damage on all units in the area. This Stomp does as much damage as a fireball. He takes 1.1 seconds to charge up before jumping and attacking. He, however, will not do air damage. He’ll crush the skeleton army, but an air horde like the minion horde will take him down. He has a one tile melee attack range. If you spawn the mega knight on a Hog Rider he’ll stomp on him and prevent him from getting any hits on your tower. You should note that he keeps taking damage when he is air-borne, unlike the bandit. He can also be used to easily kill the bandit. The tornado will only suck him in when he touches the ground, and he can even jump out of the tornado’s centre and attack the tower. If you’re defending with the Mega Knight you need to spawn him properly and nail the timing. Using him with minions will not only deal with enemy units, but also take out a tower.
Countering the Mega Knight
Pekka is the best counter against the mega knight. If you use a ranged defense like and ice wizard with a Pekka, the she will hardly take any damage against the Mega knight and easily kill him. Using ice spirit or Fire Spirits will do some good damage to him because they move faster that his jump or attack. You can use a knight to counter the mega knight too. This works well because the Knight costs less Elixir. The Log is the only spell the resets the Mega Knight’s charge. Placing a tank to distract him and a ranged attacker will do quick work of him, especially if you use the clash royale gems hack. Something similar can be done with a tank and minions. That’s the beauty of Clash Royale!
