Dart Monkeys throws single dart at nearby Bloons. Short range and low pierce but cheap. Most of the time, Dart Monkeys are used as a starter while farming money for heroes, because this tower is unlocked first in every Bloons TD version.
Dart Monkeys (0/0/0) looks like a real monkey with brown skin and looks very different on its tier 5 upgrades.
The price varies on difficulty, as shown below:
- Easy – $170
- Medium – $200
- Hard – $215
- Impoppable – $240
Just like previous version (btd 5) you can choose on three different paths with unique attack, strength, and weaknesses.
This path excels on creating havoc. If you manage to upgrade into 5th tier, you can see spiked balls everywhere. Great on ceramic rounds.
- Tier 1: Sharp Shots – can pop one extra bloon per shot.
- Tier 2: Razor Sharp Shots – can pop two extra bloon per shot.
- Tier 3: Spike-o-pult – converts the dark monkey into a Spike-o-pult that hurls a large spiked ball instead of darts. Good range, but slower attack speed. Each ball can pop lots of bloons.
- Tier 4: Juggernaut – hurls a giant spiked ball that excels at crushing ceramic bloons.
- Tier 5: Ultra-Juggernaut – gigantic spiked ball splits twice into six Juggernaut balls for even more destructive power.
Plasma Monkey Fan Club Path
I rarely use this path because I prefer Super Monkey towers instead. But if you want to experiment on your strategy, you might want to use this path.
- Tier 1: Quick shots – shoots 15% faster.
- Tier 2: Very Quick Shots – Shoots 33% faster!
- Tier 3: Triple Shot – throws three darts instead of one.
- Tier 4: Super Monkey Fan Club – an active ability that converts up to 10 nearby Dart Monkeys including himself into Super Monkeys for 10 seconds.
- Tier 5: Plasma Monkey Fan Club – elite membership of this club grants the Dart Monkeys even more power!
Crossbow Master Path
My personal favorite. Crossbow Master is insane! It can destroy a normal MOAB in seconds, this tower is a must have. Make sure to unlock two Crossbow Master using knowledge feature.
- Tier 1: Long Range Darts – makes the dart monkey shoot further than normal.
- Tier 2: Enhanced Eyesight – shoots even further and can detect camo bloons.
- Tier 3: Crossbow – uses a long range Crossbow that can pop three layers of bloon every hit.
- Tier 4: Sharp Shooter – does powerful crit shots every few seconds that do a lot more damage.
- Tier 5: Crossbow Master – shoots really fast and devastates most bloon types with ease.
