Adds a large missile array and a powerful machine gun.
~ Official Bloons TD 5 Mobile description.

Apache Dartship is the final upgrade on the first path for the Heli Pilot in Bloons TD 5. This upgrade adds four homing missiles with infinite range and a powerful machine gun to the Heli Pilot. The regular Quad Darts attack is retained. In Bloons TD Battles Mobile, its machine gun deals 2 damage but attacks at half the speed.

In BTD5, this upgrade costs $14875 on Easy, $17500 on Medium, $18900 on Hard, and $21000 on Impoppable.



Apache Dartship provides a large amount of high damage for highly mobile range. Compared to Spectre, Apache Dartship produces many more projectiles per second with its incredibly quick machine gun attacks.

Version History (Bloons TD Battles Mobile)[]


BUFF Apache Dartship price decreased ($17500 → $14000).



  • This upgrade is somewhat similar to the Spectre, as both shoot some type of explosives and darts.
    • Additionally, they are both on the first path of their respective towers, and both towers are uniquely able to move and fly.
  • Apache Dartships become less powerful if used in packs, as they can push each other out of the way.
    • However, their missiles will always fire due to their infinite range.
  • The Apache Dartship is a reference to the AH-64 Apache, a military helicopter which is still in use today.
  • In Bloons TD 5, Two Apache Dartships can easily beat the MOAB Madness special mission.
  • The in-game Apache Dartship has no visible rocket launchers on the sides but still shoots missiles.
    • The artwork shows missiles on the wingtips, however.
  • Apache Dartship's missiles have infinite range, unlike the dart attacks.
  • If set in a location where only its missiles fire, every time it fires its central gun spins, possibly implying they fire from there, however this is unlikely, as the missiles appear to originate from central gatling gun and the twin guns on each side of the main cannon.
  • The Apache Dartship is the fastest dart-shooting tower in the whole game (without ability boosts), as the main gun shoots every frame (60 shots per second barring lag).
