The giant troop unit in Clash of Clans (COC) is a normal elixir unit which can be found in the barracks. The giant troop unit generally is known for its high durability against splash attacks like mortars because of the high number of hit points they possess. The Giant keeps changing little by little as it gets upgraded in the laboratory and also gets a massive increase in the number of hit points.
The Giant troop unit generally has its eyes only on the enemy defense structures. It finds the nearest defense unit and attacks it before moving on to the next structure. Now you may have a question as to what makes this unit different than a PEKKA. Well, the answer to that lies in the amount of damage it deals with the enemy defense units and the types of units it chooses to attack.
Support Troops for Giants
The amount of damage dealt by the Giant Troop unit is considerably less than the damage dealt by any other attacking unit. It makes them the best choice to use as a defensive unit or as a distraction. They can draw out enemy troops from the clan castles or bring out the heroes from the wall so that other attacking units can effectively take them down without the other units losing their hit points.
The most effective units that can support the Giant Troop Unit is the wizard unit from the normal barracks and the valkyrie units from the dark elixir barracks. These two units deal a lot of damage in a short amount of time, which makes the attack more effective after the initial defense units have been taken out.
In a different scenario, the Goblin is also a very good unit that supports the Giant along with some wall breakers. It makes it easier for the Giant to break through the enemy defenses. Once the defense structures are taken out, the Goblins can take out the resources very effectively. This is only possible if there is a high number of all of these troops in the Army Camp in the first place; otherwise, it will not be as effective.
Spells for Giants
If you choose to use the Giant troop unit, I would suggest using the Healing spell. It is important that the giants dont lose their only advantage, and it increases the durability and time duration of the unit so it can defeat the structures on the outside.
Once this is done, there is very little chance of having any wall breakers left. Thus a Jump spell is very effective in helping the units jump over the walls and attack their targets. This spell comes in handy for the Giant units but also for the Heroes and PEKKAs when it is necessary to break a high-level defensive structure.
If in case there are no wall breakers in your arsenal, earthquake spells are effective to break walls. Then deploy the giants so that they don't lose hit points in trying to break the walls.
These are some of the tips and tricks you can use to get the best out of your attack, whether it be in a clan war or any multiplayer battle.
