    Exclamation Correct Head Hunter DPS is approx 550

    A lot of people have been using headhuntes in defensive clan castles since they work well. I've always been surprised just how well they work. They looked like they were doing way more damage to heros than their rated 132 DPS (level 3). I finally got a very clean attack that shows their DPS is WAY above 132. My calculation has it at about 550 DPS.

    In the video you will see my level 75 AQ gets taken from full health (3390) to 0 in 8 seconds by a headhunter and 5 archers while being healed by 4 healers. Video: https://youtu.be/5TyQb3M28vA

    Math:
    archers get about 24 total shots x 31 damage per shot = -744 hp
    4 healers give approximately 220 healing per second for 8 seconds = +1760 hp
    So, head hunter has 8 seconds to take down 3390 + 1760 - 744 = 4406 hp

    4406 hp /8 seconds = 550 dps

    Yup. It's literally stated in the troop description.

    Your math skills are right on the money: 4X132=528
    OP Defense: Any defense the poster doest’t like or know how to work around, nullifies their attack or denies them their rightful three star.

    That happen when people doesn't care about reading the descriptions.

    Your bigger point that Head Hunter is a valuable defensive CC troop is still a valid tip.
    Most requested QoL feature is a regional filter in the recruiting tool. If it is so hard to track players by region, why does the top player ranking show both a global and (in my case) a local U.S. tab?
