Bigger, more powerful magic blasts pop through 2 layers of Bloon.
~ BTD6

Arcane Blast is the second upgrade of Path 1 for the Wizard Monkey in BTD6. It increases projectile size of the Wizard Monkey's magic bolts, and it allows them to pop through 2 layers per shot. This upgrade does not increase damage of any other attacks.

It costs $510 on Easy, $600 on Medium, $650 on Hard, and $700 on Impoppable.



Mainly a source of extra damage for the bolt attack. It currently does not possess any special crosspathing interactions whatsoever, so it will be useless in combination with most higher-level upgrades other than simply going for Arcane Mastery and above.


  • This upgrade is helpful when paired with Intense Magic for the significantly increased pierce.
  • 2-0-1 Wizard can make early-game considerably easier.
  • This upgrade is a good stepping stone to higher Path 1 upgrades (Arcane Mastery, Arcane Spike, and Archmage), as it can pop decently.

Version History[]

Only major change was inheriting a base Wizard pierce buff.

Buff Main bolt has more pierce (2 → 3, from base Wizard buff).
