Bigger, more powerful magic blasts pop through 2 layers of Bloon.
~ In-game description

Arcane Blast is the second upgrade of Path 1 for the Wizard Monkey in Bloons TD 6. 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.

This upgrade costs $380 on Easy, $450 on Medium, $485 on Hard, and $540 on Impoppable.



The Wizard receives a blue wide-brimmed wizard hat. As a crosspath, this converts the clothing of most Wizards into a blue color, although for Shimmer and Necromancer their clothing become more purple, in addition to yellow plackets and cuffs from Guided Magic.

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[]

Until Version 31.0, which reduced its base price, the only buff was inheriting base Wizard buffs.

  • Buff Main bolt has more pierce (2 → 3, from base Wizard buff).
Arcane Blast's benefit to the base tower is quite small for the price and also doesn't carry on well as a crosspath to the other T3s since they add new attacks instead of buffing the base attack, the price has been reduced to add a little more value here [...]

  • Buff Arcane Blast price reduced ($600 --> $450)
