This complete guide will help you with all the RaccoonBot functions in the bot and how to use them. I will go through each tab one at the time, and explain all the options.
The General Tab
Here we got 3 areas and this is the main control panel.
1. Select what the bot should do for you.
- Collect resources: allow the bot to collect from your mines, collectors and drills.
- Build troops: allow the bot to build troops, Quick Train is the only available option here.
- Attack: will make the bot attack, and you can select trophy push. In trophy push, the bot only drops town halls near the boarder and quit.
- Maintain trophy range: let the bot drop trophies for you to maintain a set range.
- Clan Donations: let the bot donate and request troops for you.
- Upgrade buildings / walls: select this to let the bot do this for you.
- Global/Clan Chat/Friendly Battle: select this to send auto messages to clan or Global. Also to send Friendly Challenges
- Re-arm traps/xbows/infernos: the bot will re-arm every time it starts.
- Auto stop module: will stop the bot when preset conditions are meet.
2. Control the bot.
- Start : starts the bot and if bluestacks/memu is not running it will start that and coc, and after that you need to press start again. If bluestacks/memu and coc is running, then the bot just starts. Please use the bot to start bluestacks/memu, this will prevent some issues you could encounter.
- When the bot is running you also use it to stop the bot.
- Pause: is used to pause and restart the bot.
- Hide/Show Emulator: This button is the only way you should minimize bluestacks/memu, or the bot will not function. You also use this button to show bluestacks/memu again.
- Force attack: is used to make the bot attack the current base in search mode.
3. Log window.
Here we get all the information the bot produce.
This is the center for building troops.
- Sets to train- Here you will Select which Army Composition you want to use based on what you have prepared in CoC Quick Train Tab. (see Below)
- Boost: This Option allows you to boost your Barracks from 1x-5x or even Unlimitied times.
- Begin Attacking Phase:
- Minimum needed troops to attack: You can set this to any percentage desired for when you want the bot to attack.(Ex: 50% – Bot will start attack when you have 120 troops in your camp trained. )
- Minimum needed spells to attack: Very similar to the troops, Set it to attack when your spells are all ready or half
- Wait for: (King, Queen, Warden) – When this options are checked, the bot will wait for your hero to be at full health before it attacks. (Make sure to have this option unchecked when your hero is upgrading or you’ll have a continous loop error.)
This is where you setup what to attack and how to attack.
You got 3 different tabs, normal, dead and reduction.
- normal: look at the above image
- Minimum gold, elixir and dark elixir, is the minimum amount, a base you want to attack should have.
- Maximum TH level is the maximum level of TH you want to attack.
- Need all or need any, determine if all of your requirements or any of your requirements should be meet.
- The different deploy algorithms is in the box, here you should choose only one at a time. If you don’t want to attack normal bases, please remember to choose an deploy algorithm all the same, or the bot will not attack.
This is the same as normal
- only dead and slightly dead options allow you choose the type of bases that should be attacked.
- If none is selected, then all bases that meet the requirements for normal and dead according to the base, will be attacked.
- If the slightly dead is selected or both the only dead and slightly dead is selected, then all slightly dead and dead bases that meet the requirements from the dead tab, will be attacked
- If only dead is selected, then it is only dead bases who meet the dead tab requirements the bot will attack.
- Normal bases is all bases where all the collectors is empty.
- Slightly dead bases is when all collectors is level 12 and slightly filled.
- Dead bases is when all collectors if half full or more.
- Enable requirements reduction, allow you to enable or disable this option.
- Reduce requirements by * percent, here you set how many % of reduction you want.
- Every 5 bases, from # 30 to #999 for normal or/and dead bases. This is where you setup how the reduction should work. In the image you see the preset values. If you use this setup the bot will reduce the requirements with 5% after 30 bases, then another 5% after the next 5 bases, and continue with this until the 999. base. It will reduce the requirements for both normal and dead bases, and you are able to choose which should be reduced or not.
Some examples on how to use the attack settings:
- If you only want to attack bases that have all 3 resources, you should set the minimum requirements for all 3 and choose need all. If one resource is not needed, then please choose 0 for that resource. You could also just set 1 resource and 0 for the rest.
- If you want the bot to attack if requirements for any resource is meet, then choose the need any and set the minimum needed amount for all 3 resources. If there is one resource you don’t care about, then set the amount for that resource very high, so the bot will not find any bases that meet the requirement. If you don’t care about dark elixir, the set the amount to 9999. If it is gold you don care about then set it to 2.000.000.
- The difference between need all and need any, is when there is one or more resources you don’t care about, then the resource in need all should be set to 0, and in the need any should be set high, this way the resource would be ignored by the bot.
- If you set a resource to high in need all, then the bot will never find a base, and if a resource is set to 0 in need any, then the bot will attack all bases that have 0 of that resource no matter what the other resources are.
- If you would like to use clan castle troops, king, queen or warden, please choose it here. You are able to choose all of them, none or any mix you would like.
- Trophy push, if only for trophy pushing, and determines how long from the boarder TH is allowed to be.
- Size of troop wave, here you can set the size of troop waves.
- Delay between waves, here you can set the delay between troop waves.
- Size of anti trap wave, here you can set the size of anti trap wave. The anti trap wave is low level troops send in to trigger traps. If you use this option, please remember to have barbarians in your army, or the bot might not be able to attack.
- End battle if no resources change in 10 seconds and a star option, allow you to let the bot end attacks. This is useful when using heroes. Choose how long the bot should wait and if it should stop or not with or without a star. If you don’t enable the and a star option, the bot will end the attack when no resources have changed in the time frame you set. If you enable the and a star option, the bot will not stop if no star is won, even if no resources is changing.
- The avoid strong base option is only for normal bases. When used the bot will dismiss bases with infernos, wizards and walls that is not below the values set by you.
- Request troops here. Enable or disable the option. Set the request text for chat, and set the time between each request.
- Donate to all, will donate troops at hand to requests from clan mates.
- Donate by keywords, will allow you to setup what troops should be donated.
- Check every, here you are able to set a time-frame for how often the bot should check for requests.
- When you use the by keyword option, you should setup which troops should be allowed and which should not.
- For each troop you also can specify which level and if levels should be checked.
- And you are able to setup which keywords should allow donation and which words should be blacklisted.

5. Trophy range
- This is where you setup the maintain trophy range option. With the settings in the image the bot will start to drop trophies when at 1950 or more. It will continue until it reach 1650 or less. When the bot is dropping trophies, it will not attack any base that meet your requirements, it will only drop trophies.
6. Auto-stop module
- If you selected the auto stop module in general tab, then it is here you setup the module.
- You should select what the bot should do and when it should do it.

Reserve Resources, here you are able to limit the amount the bot is able to use on upgrades. Put in the minimum amount you want to have left after an upgrade, but remember that you should also allow the bot to have enough for the upgrades.
- In the box you are able to let the bot wait for expensive and upgrade in the order you set. If you choose skip to affordable, then the bot will upgrade items on the list when the resources allow to upgrade one of them, and not look at the order.

- Select if the bot should do clan chat, how often and what it should write. You could also let the bot vary the message.
1. Optional Features
Click rate humanizing option will make the bot click slower to look more human. This will make troops deploy slower and loot will be less if you use spam armies like BAM, barcher or gobarch. Disable it to make the bot deploy troops faster and gain more loot with spam armies.
2. Recommended Practices
When you click this option the bot will select the algorithms we deem safe and enable them in both normal and dead tabs in the attack tab. The check-mark will become green and indicate this option is selected.
If you select a algorithm who is not on the safe list, then the check-mark will become a red X, indicating that an algorithm not on the list is selected.
This is only a guide line to what we think might be safer to use, it is not a guarantee that you will not be banned while using those algorithms.
Information about ban risk
Supercell ToS say that use of 3. party software is not allowed. Supercell made a software to detect use of 3rd party software, and launched the ban waves, to permanently ban 3rd party software users. Those ban waves was targeting only users of modding software like imod, xmod and certain bots using modding software.
Supercell announced that the use of emulators like bluestacks and memu is against the ToS, but that it is not a ban reason. They don’t recommend using emulators and they offer no support if you use emulators.
We have never seen any members who was banned because they used this bot. The only reason people get banned for using a bot is: if you post in clan chat or global chat that they use a bot, if you post evidence online of you using a bot in images or video with your village name visible, if you post in the Clash of clans forum that you use a bot together with your village name, or if you mail Supercell that you use a bot and tell you village name.
We have a member who send Supercell a mail with video evidence of a bot attack made by his own account, asking to ban his own account for use of a bot. Supercell send a mail answer back, and said thank you for the help, but the account was not even banned. This show that even you get reported for use of bot, then Supercell might just ignore this and do nothing.
We believe that the risk of a ban for using this bot is very low, even if you don’t use the click rate humanizing or algorithms who are human-like. We cant guarantee that you will not be banned for using this bot, because it is against the ToS. But we believe that it is unlikely to be banned if you make sure not to tell anyone in the game that you use a bot, and if you don’t post online evidence for you using a bot.
- General stats, this show your run-time, average loot per hour, number of attacked bases, how many skips and how many upgrades the bot made for you.
- This show your start resources, please remember if the bot restart after PB or some errors, this change to the new start stats.
- Your current stats.
- Last attack show you loot from last attack.
- The total loot gained from you start the bot and forward. Remember this is only the resources and trophies gained or lost from attacks. The bot don’t count collected or lost resources/trophies from defenses and collectors in the statistics.
- Here you are able to reset the statistics.
The last thing you should know are these buttons
- The first one is for you to choose preset settings for different TH levels.
- The second one is for you to save your settings, please choose a name for your setting when saving.
- The last one is for you to load your saved settings.
Please remember if you use settings from a old revision on a later revision, you could get issues if there have been changes made to the way those settings files are used.
