TH8 4 Mortar WAR Base Designs

1. Anti-Giants / Anti-Dragon / Anti-Hogs TH8 4 Mortar War Base

To protect your base against town hall 8 attackers. Attacks that are usually done with level 5 Giants, level 4 hogs or level 3 dragons. This TH8 4 Mortar war base design will provide you protection in most of the cases giving away only 1 Star!


Although, you do not get attacked with BArch attacks in clan wars, this war base design for town hall 8 will also guard you against giving away more than 1 star in BArch attacks. Placement of most of the traps is done to ensure that the traps get activated before the attacking armies reach the defensive building be it air attacks or ground attacks.  This base provides best results when level 5 or higher archers are placed in the clan castle.

The enemy will have to waste both troops and time in order to take the archers out and destroy them before starting the main attack. Although it is also recommended to include a Wizard within the clan castle, it is not mandatory. This base design holds up against only level 8 town hall attackers who generally come with level 5 ground troops or level 4 or lower hogs.

Unique wall layout ensures that the ground troops are forced to follow the route to the traps before reaching the defensive buildings providing ample amount of time for the splash damage from the mortars to them.

 2. Long Diamond TH8 4 Mortar Anti-Air and Anti Ground Attack War Base

This is the second TH8 4 mortar war base design. Again trap positioning is done to inflict maximum damage to attacking armies before they can reach the defense buildings. This long diamond shaped town hall 8 war base design is particularly effective against most ground attack troops from all sides. The positioning of the defense building ensures that no matter from which direction the ground troops attack, the defenses will take them out easily before they can penetrate into the center of the base.

Although the base looks easy to attack with ground troops from the top, the positioning of empty spaces (which creates doubt in attacker’s mind of placement of Tesla towers) prevents most attacks from top. Plus the positioning of the 3 mortars in the top portion of the base design ensures that any such attacker will not be able to reach the town hall easily. Any air attack from the top will also fail as the air traps are all positioned to provide a strong cover.

The base will definitely get attacked with air troops from top and with ground troops from the bottom. In both the cases, the base is well protected and will only give away 1 star in clan wars. I have tested the base against both ground and air attacks and level 8 town hall attackers usually only get 1 Star.

3. An Inviting Anti-Dragon TH8 War Base Design

This war base design of town hall 8 with  easy looking air defenses is an invitation to attack the base with air troops. In particular, the invitation is for TH8 attackers to use Dragons and Balloons to target the base. Although the defenses look particularly vulnerable they are not! The air defenses are well protected by storages on all sides (and even dragons waste a lot of time to take out storages. By the time the dragons take out the storages, the air defenses will fry them! LOL.

Moreover, the air traps are such positioned that if the dragons survive, they will get activated. This base design has worked particularly well against level 3 dragons almost every time giving away only 1 star. In one clan war, this base got attacked 8 times from different directions and only gave away 1 star at most.
