Icon for Alternate Bloon Rounds

Alternate Bloon Rounds is a mode in BTD6. Players start on Round 3, like Hard Mode. Bloon rounds are not the same as the standard rounds, but instead there is an entirely unique set of rounds. Stronger types of Bloons appear in rounds earlier than normal, making the difficulty more challenging. For example, Camo Bloons appear on Round 5 as opposed to Round 24.

Rounds[edit | edit source]

ActualBloonsInRounds alternate.png

*Note: Rounds 1 and 2 do exist in the code, but never appear in normal Alternate Bloons gameplay. Round 1 has 10 very spaced Blue Bloons, while Round 2 is almost identical to the normal rounds. These rounds can be seen in certain challenges (including Odysseys).

First instances of types of bloons are in bold.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In this mode, the MOAB is the only MOAB-Class Bloon whose non-Fortified form appears more than one round later than its Fortified form.
  • The Alternate Bloon Rounds rules only continue to Round 100 and after that, standard freeplay rules and ramping applies.
  • On Round 5, a Camo Regrowth Red bloon appears as the last bloon of the round. This is a reference to a meme in the BTD6 Community where it is seen as a bloon that is extremely difficult to pop.
  • The Z.O.M.G. and D.D.T. are the only MOAB-Class Bloons that do not appear as a fortified variant on their standard debut round, rather having 2 highly spaced Z.O.M.Gs or 4 D.D.Ts
  • The icon for Alternate Bloons Rounds is identical to the icon for Freeplay Mode when it appears after winning any game.
