Throws a potion at Monkeys, allowing them to pop Lead Bloons, do extra damage to Ceramic and MOAB-Class Bloons.
~ BTD6

Acidic Mixture Dip is the second upgrade of Path 1 for the Alchemist. It allows the Alchemist to occasionally shoot separate potions at towers that boost their popping power. These special potions sent at towers allow affected towers to pop Lead Bloons and deal +1 damage to Ceramic and MOAB-class bloons for the next 10 shots. The Alchemist throws a potion once every 10 seconds. Unlike Berserker Brew, the chosen target is selected randomly.

It costs $350 on Medium.


  • Unlike Berserker Brew, this buff has no maximum per tower and does not expire by time. Thus, the number of buffed shots stored in a tower can be arbitrarily high.
  • As long as there are no other towers in range of the Acidic Mixture Dip Alchemist, its acid potions can sustain towers of attack speed of less than one attack per second.
  • Confirmed by this Reddit post, Caltrops that are on the track will not wear out its Acidic Mixture Dip if the original tower's Acidic Mixture Dip wears out. In fact, Caltrops that were affected by Acidic Mixture Dip will retain its bonuses until consumed or destroyed.
  • In a similar way, Permaspike can have essentially permanent lead-popping and DDT-popping power just by having an Acidic Mixture Dip Alchemist in range.
