Barbarians hunt in packs, packs of 4 to be precise. 4 stylish mustaches coming at you can be a terrifying sight. They are unlocked early in the game (Arena 3) and have a pretty basic use. surround and destroy ground units and buildings. They are devastating if left alone in a group but separated or in reduced numbers can be fairly easy to take down.
Barbarians can be used well for defense in situations where the opponent is attacking with point damage troops such as the Prince. Giants also can soon be taken out by 4 barbarians before it gets to the tower. They are very susceptible to splash damage characters however. Wizards have enough range to take them down all together, Baby Dragons can do the same and not suffer any retaliation. Even a bomber on defense will do the job effectively. Barbarians can destroy ground based splash damage troops by placing them directly on top of them and surrounding them. Getting this wrong however can cause the Barbarians to take a lot of damage.
In terms of Offense the Barbarians are not well equipped to attack alone. For 5 Elixir you cannot risk them without backup. They are too easily removed from battle while the opponent has a tower and defensive troops. They are also too slow to act as a surprise attack even when your opponent is shot on Elixir. Even fire spirits will do enough damage for the Tower to finish the job. Failing that a fireball will also do the job and still have a positive elixir trade.
Overall the Barbarians are best used in a defensive state to surround enemy tank units. Take down a giant, frustrate a prince or hold a P.E.K.K.A. long enough to get some help.
