Bloons Wiki

Command all your water-based Monkeys to decisive victory. Requires water to place.
~ Admiral Brickell's description, Bloons TD 6

Admiral Brickell is a Hero in Bloons TD 6 who was added in Version 18.0. She is the first purely water-based hero in the game. She dispenses mines into nearby water and fires from her revolver. Her revolver pops one bloon at a time and initially deals 3 damage per shot. Each mine is dispensed around nearby water every 3 seconds and lasts for up to 2 rounds or 120 seconds, whichever comes first. Mines quickly home onto bloons once they are in close range of them. She can be unlocked with a one-off purchase of BloonjaminsIcon5000.

She costs $765 on Easy, $900 on Medium Difficulty, $970 on Hard, and $1,080 on Impoppable. If Hero Favors is enabled, she will cost $690 on Easy, $810 on Medium, $875 on Hard, and $970 on Impoppable.

In Version 20.0, Admiral Brickell was given a new skin, Dread Pirate Brickell. It costs BloonjaminsIcon2500 to unlock.

In Version 38.0, Admiral Brickell was given a new skin, Lifeguard Brickell. It costs BloonjaminsIcon 2500 to unlock.


Admiral Brickell will start upgrading herself every round upon placement. She earns more XP each round to unlock her next upgrade irrespective of how many bloons she pops. Her upgrades can also be immediately bought with cash, though the amount of cash required to purchase the next upgrade will typically increase as the upgrades get higher, making self-upgrading an important element for her overall power.

Admiral Brickell requires 1.425x more experience to upgrade towards each level compared to Quincy, Gwendolin, Striker Jones, or Obyn Greenfoot. Pat Fusty, Ezili, and Sauda all level up at the same speed as Brickell.

Admiral Brickell is a very powerful Hero who can greatly empower nearby water towers (Monkey Subs and Monkey Buccaneers in particular) and can stockpile mines similar to a Spike Factory with Long Life Spikes or higher. When paired with various water-specific powerhouses (e.g. Sub Commander + 2-0-3 Triple Guns spam, Sub Commander + 0-3-2 Ballistic Missile spam, Pirate Lord, multiple Destroyers), her intense synergies become a mighty force, especially whenever her Level 3+ ability is activated. Pairing her with a nearby Energizer or Bloontonium Reactor is also very useful, because it makes her level much faster, further improving her abilities and her main attacks.

Her pistol is useful earlygame as an immediate attack, meaning she can quickly hit fast bloons such as spaced Yellows and Pinks on early rounds such as 14 or 15. As it does not improve much later on, this becomes one of the less relevant aspects of Admiral Brickell.

Her mines serve as stockpiles when a large number of bloons begin to reach a certain section. As of v27.0, when bloons are in range of the mines, only one mine will explode at a time, with a short delay between mines. This prevents all the mines from being wasted on a couple of leaking bloons, but lowers the overall DPS when high-RBE bloons enter the range of the mines.

Her Level 3+ ability, Naval Tactics becomes especially powerful on higher levels, and such an activated ability at higher levels can even eliminate the need to add a Monkey Intelligence Bureau or even a Radar Scanner nearby neighboring water towers. Level 14+ is especially powerful, as her buffs last far longer, which in turn has a significantly higher uptime overall. Additionally, this ability can buff Vengeful True Sun God and Sun Temples if they are placed on water surface, effectively doubling their firepower, making her very useful in Freeplay Mode, although she's outclassed in that aspect by Adora. This buff does not apply to any other land tower standing on ice or a pontoon.

Her Level 7+ ability, Blast Chain, is useful for making a large stockpile of sea mines destroy a large amount of Bloons at once. Sea mines usually have an activation delay of 0.4s which can limit their effectiveness in the late-game, where there will often have to be several sea mines used on one target. Using this ability can be very beneficial to the clean-up capabilities of the sea mines.

Her Level 10+ ability, Mega Mine, is great for stopping hordes of MOAB-class bloons and break down larger blimps into more manageable chunks. However, the Mega Mine will only damage the top layer and not pop through layers, thus huge numbers of Ceramics may spawn if this ability is not used carefully. Because Mega Mines only target MOAB-class bloons, although they can damage non-MOAB-class bloons, it is most useful when the Mega Mine is manually placed where the explosions can optimize their maximum range and maximum pierce. Mega Mines are especially useful for dealing damage to BADs, especially at Level 20 when her Mega Mines deal 11,000 damage instead of 4000.


  • Admiral Brickell is specially powerful on maps with a lot of water, such as Spice Islands, Off The Coast, Peninsula, and Flooded Valley, as her Naval Tactics ability can be utilized to affect many more water-based towers within her range. However, she loses a lot of the support potential on maps with limited water placement.
  • To optimize her pistol attack and mine attack, try placing Brickell somewhat close to the end of the map, but not too far such that there is less room for nearby water towers.
  • Mega Mine's damage doesn't transfer to other MOAB-class layers (unlike First Strike). It is best used on blimp clusters to deal a lot of damage on total.
    • Note that multiple stockpiled Mega Mines can trigger at almost the same time as each other, allowing for a semi-penetration of blimps and their offspring; however, this trick is quite difficult to pull off especially without multiple Mega Mines at ready.
  • It is important to add Bloontonium Reactor or Energizer nearby Brickell for decreased ability cooldowns. In this way, her uptime for her abilities become much faster.
  • Take care when using her Mega Mines ability, as it is capable of spawning large magnitudes of Ceramics and/or lower-level MOAB-class bloons if it explodes many blimps at once. Be sure to have effective Ceramic damage to compensate. The best examples of this are Perma-Spike and Ground Zero, as they do well with both large hordes of Ceramics and weaker blimps.
  • Try pairing Admiral Brickell with water towers that have high synergetic potential. Destroyers and Pirate Lord have exceptionally higher synergy with Admiral Brickell, compensating their typically low pierce for much stronger overall DPS, especially at Level 8+ once she gains a buff that applies permanent +1 pierce to nearby water towers.
    • During the extreme late-game, Admiral Brickell can be used to buff True Sun God (including Vengeful True Sun God) and other Sun Temples if placed on water by use of frozen water (via Arctic Wind and above). This allows her to apply Naval Tactics' double attack speed buffs onto those high-DPS towers for a significant boost of damage at will. Her synergies with them aren't as strong when compared to Adora, but is still quite a viable synergy.
  • For Ranked Boss Bloon Events, Brickell is occasionally seen for Least Cash and Least Tiers events, where she is used to buff Destroyer spam. Her Mega Mine is also useful for its decent boss damage and ability to clean up Lych-Soul and Rock Bloons. For Timed Events, she can still be used to buff the VTSG, but she is generally outclassed in this role by Adora.

Version History[]

Balance Changes[]

Admiral Brickell was overall nerfed since she was added into the game. She remains usable in niche strategies where a majority of defense involves water-based towers, but is no longer the dominant hero since her Version 20.0 nerf alongside nerfs to Ballistic Missile and Sub Commander. Although she was fairly popular during the first few updates after her debut, she had gained a resurgence in high popularity since Version 35.0 after significant nerfs to Geraldo and large buffs to Pirate Lord. She also has improved pistol damage so that her pistol can scale better throughout stages of the game.

  • Released
  • NERF Bugfix: Now uses correct, slower, XP curve. (XP requirements changed from 1x to 1.425x)
  • NERF Level 10 Mega Mine now properly has a lifespan (180 seconds or 4 rounds, whichever is shorter)
  • BUFF Level 10 Mega Mine can now be supported by a Techbot
  • BUFF Level 10 Mega Mine has a 5s stun as well.
  • BUFF Level 20 Mega Mine has a 10s stun as well.
While Brickell setups have a very specific select group of interactions, it is clear her abilities in this interaction are over performing so we want to try take a slow approach toning these back while we continue to review all Heroes each update.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Resolved an issue where reloading with level 20 Brickell reduced Mega Mine to level 10
  • NERF Level 3-13 Naval Tactics Duration reduced 10s → 9s
  • NERF Level 14+ Naval Tactics Duration reduced 15s → 12s
  • NERF Level 10-19 Mega Mine damage reduced from 5000 → 4000
  • NERF Lvl 5: Due to a bug, Naval Tactics no longer allows nearby Water Monkeys to pop all Bloon types.
  • BUFF Lvl. 5: Naval Tactics now correctly allows Water Monkeys to damage all Bloon types.
Due to much user concern with Brickell's Sea Mines seriously overkilling weak targets and wasting themselves in this way, they now have a short delay between activations.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Change Sea Mines now only set off a maximum of one mine per 0.4s.
To help Brickell excel a little better at her thematic niche of water support, we have added a small permanent buff to all water in her radius to allow her to give them a bit of extra juice even during ability downtime. Additional minor buffs to her main slow-hard hitting revolver attack as she levels up.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Level 8+ Brickell also grants a permanent +1 pierce to all water towers in radius
  • BUFF Level 15-16 Brickell revolver attack damage increased from 7 → 9
  • BUFF Level 17+ Brickell revolver attack damage increased from 7 → 11
The Sea Mines delay that was added back in 29 has done well for reducing some of Brickells weaknesses, but as we expected somewhat does add in new weaknesses to rush rounds of Bloons that can now sneak past before all of her mines have been able to acquire a target. To help lessen this new issue she has gained a brand new ability that will allow more Sea Mines to rapidly deploy and find a target over a short duration.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Level 7 Blast Chain utility ability added for Admiral Brickell. For 10 seconds all sea mines have their delay halved (the new one added in 29), & their projectile speed doubled.
We had people request a specific funny use case of Brickell on Ravine, which we respect and approve, and overall we wanted to scale her main revolver attack better into late game, so she is seeing slight and slightly experimental improvements.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Mega Mine detection and explosion no longer gets blocked by Line of Sight
  • BUFF Level 12-14 main revolver damage increased 7 → 8
  • BUFF Level 15-16 main revolver damage increased 9 → 12
  • BUFF Level 17+ main revolver damage increased 11 → 18
Brickell has shown exceptional high level performance, while not fitting in as any intended strong early solo carry. Her base cost has been increased so she won’t come into early play, and Lv20 Mega Mine is having its damage taken down to not quite decimate late game somuch. [sic] In return she will have much more pierce, and as it is mainly a niche utility we also want Blast Chain to be available more often.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Admiral Brickell price increased from $750 → $900
  • BUFF Blast Chain ability cooldown reduced from 60s → 45s
  • NERF Lv20 Brickell Mega Mine damage reduced from 15,000 → 11,000
  • BUFF Lv20 Brickell Mega Mine pierce increased from 100 → 150
We aren’t happy with strats that start looking like exploits with frequent sell-replace loops.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Selling Admiral Brickell will now cause all of her placed Mines to expire along with her as well
We still want a little more out of Brickell’s single target Revolver attack as it’s the least exciting per [sic] of her arsenal so are decreasing the attack cooldown, however her mega mine ability also performs exceptionally well throughout all moab rounds so we want to slightly increase its final cooldown instead
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Admiral Brickell Lv2-11 Revolver cooldown reduced (0.7s → 0.65s)
  • BUFF Admiral Brickell Lv12+ Revolver cooldown reduced (0.4s → 0.35s)
  • NERF Admiral Brickell Lv18+ Mega Mine cooldown (40s → 45s)
Sorry Brickell, at least there's a bunch of Buccaneer & Sub changes and 2 paragon friends to work with!
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Admiral Brickell's Mega Mine lifespan reduced from 180s to 150s
  • BUFF Level 6-11 Admiral Brickell's Revolver damage increased from 5 to 6
  • BUFF Level 12-14 Admiral Brickell's Revolver damage increased from 8 to 12
  • BUFF Level 15-16 Admiral Brickell's Revolver damage increased from 12 to 18
  • BUFF Level 17+ Admiral Brickell's Revolver damage increased from 18 to 40
While we like giving players lots to choose from as early as possible, we’ve seen feedback that the current hero unlock flow can feel overwhelming with all Monkey Money unlockable heroes becoming available immediately at account level 10. To address this, we are spacing this period out with a few different groupings of Hero unlocks and holding back some of the more complex Heroes until account level 35.
~ Ninja Kiwi, Version 42.0 preview notes
  • NERF Admiral Brickell now unlocks at Level 35 instead of Level 10
We’ll probably regret this, but the nerf made people very sad, and that is not a life goal 😢
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Level 18+ Mega Mine cooldown reduced from 45s to 40s

Bug Fixes and General Changes[]

  • Level 3's description slightly changed from "Naval Tactics Ability: Greatly increases attack speed of nearby water-based Monkeys for a short time." to "Naval Tactics: greatly increases attack speed of Brickell and nearby water-based Monkeys for a short time."'
  • Level 7's description changed from "Brickell gains increased attack range and Camo Bloon detection." to "Blast Chain: Sea mines fire off quicker for a short time. Brickell gains increased attack range and Camo Bloon detection."'
  • Resolved an issue with Brickell’s Mega Mine not switching cosmetic assets


Admiral Brickell has different cosmetics that can be bought to add visual flair to her. These are purely visual and do not influence how she performs in-game. Hero Skins for Admiral Brickell are available once she is unlocked.


Admiral Brickell has two hero skins available. Her first skin is Dread Pirate Brickell, which dons her as a traditional 1800's style Caribbean pirate. Her second skin is Lifeguard Brickell, dressing herself as a lifeguard on a floatable boat, wielding a water pistol and bearing a white flag with an orange reticle symbol in the middle.

  • The maritime flags that she carries changes as she levels up:
    • From level 3 to level 9, she holds a yellow and blue flag in her hand, which means alphabetically 'Kilo' or "I wish to communicate with you".
    • From level 10 to level 19, the flag is moved to the mast on the back of her ship and becomes 2 triangular shaped flags, one yellow and one blue, there is a set on both sides.
      • Coincidentally, when reaching level 20, both flags now become gold colored. This does not translate to any official meaning, other than to accommodate Admiral Brickell's black and gold color scheme.
  • Admiral Brickell is the fourth female hero to appear in the game, with the first three being Gwendolin, Ezili, and Adora.
    • As of update 24.0, Sauda is the fifth female monkey in the game.
  • On both Small Monkey Towers Option and Big Monkey Towers Option, when using Mega Mines, the preview of the mine will either be small or big depending on the option. However, when deployed, they are of normal size. Her Sea Mines also remains normal size on these modes.
  • She is comparable to Commander Cassie, due to both being water heroes with military related powers.


  • Admiral Brickell is the first Hero monkey not to have been leaked from game files at all, unlike Adora.
  • Limerick is a city in the Republic of Ireland, which was taken from Ninja Kiwi's tweet.

Balance changes[]

  • Prior to Version 18.1, Admiral Brickell required as much experience to upgrade towards each level compared to Quincy, Gwendolin, Striker Jones, or Obyn Greenfoot, meaning she could get Level 20 far before Round 100 on most maps. Rohan from Ninja Kiwi addressed that she was meant to level as fast as Ezili.
  • Before Version 21.0, her Naval Tactics can boost Sun Temples and Vengeful True Sun Gods, even if they are not on water. In Version 21.0, these towers have to be on water surface to receive this buff.
  • After Version 31.0 Admiral Brickell is currently the fourth monkey in the game with three abilities total, the first one being Heli Pilot, the second being Ezili, and the third being Adora.
  • Mega Mines used to be able to be stockpiled even when Admiral Brickell was sold, and her ability would immediately be usable once reaching Level 20. As a result, stockpiling extremely large amounts of Mega Mines was a viable way to beat bosses like Vortex nearly instantly by themselves, though it required an immense amount of cash to continuously buy, upgrade, and sell Brickell multiple times. This was later nerfed as Ninja Kiwi felt it verged on being an exploit.

Community achievements[]

  • Jajajosh used Admiral Brickell to beat 20x HP MOABs on Dark Castle. Link. He even used her to beat 200x HP MOABs on Dark Castle. Link. Even more surprisingly is that this was done after her XP leveling nerf in Version 18.1.
    • Because Mega Mines has a time-based expiry as of Version 19.0, this is no longer possible to do as of Version 19.0, as it required excessive stalling while massively stockpiling with Admiral Brickell's Mega Mines ability.
