Shoots larger bombs, they have a larger blast area and more popping power.
~ BTD6 Description

Bigger Bombs is the first upgrade of Path 1 for the Bomb Shooter in Bloons TD 6. It increases the blast radius by +50% (from 12 to 18 for main explosions) and increases pierce of each main explosion by +6 (from 14 to 20).

It costs $295 on Easy, $350 on Medium, $380 on Hard, and $420 on Impoppable.


Bigger Bombs looks very similar to the regular bomb tower. All that changes is a larger mouth and the added red ring around the mouth of the Bomb Tower.



Bonus blast radius and pierce is useful for the Bomb Shooter's role at area damage. Because Bomb Shooter explosions have small blast radiuses and less pierce than other area-of-effect sources such as Mortar Monkeys or Ice Monkeys, the Bigger Bombs upgrade slightly improves the base Bomb Shooter's main role.


  • This upgrade rarely occupies an important role and is generally only used as a crosspath for either MOAB Mauler or Cluster Bombs.
  • Extra blast radius can be helpful for hitting more bloons per shot, but since this upgrade is quite expensive it generally isn't very worth the price.
  • As the most expensive Tier 1 Primary Monkey upgrade, it is worthwhile to let the Bomb Shooter be near a Primary Mentoring in order to receive the Bigger Bombs upgrade for free.

Version History[]

The overall pierce gained from Bigger Bombs has been reduced to basically nerf 1-3-0 Maulers.

  • Nerf Bigger Bombs now grants +6 pierce instead of +10 pierce and pops 20 bloons instead of 28.
  • Buff Bigger Bombs costs less ($400 → $350)
