Bigger Jets improves the overall performance of the Heli Pilot by improving its flight speed. This helps it become better suited for micromanagement and therefore will have a considerably easier time chasing faster bloons. In addition, there is a special bonus for MOAB Shoves with this upgrade that allow them to deal greater shoving knockback versus MOAB-class.


  • Adding this to Pursuit makes the Heli Pilot more reliable at properly managing its automatic flight pattern. In some cases, Bigger Jets is better than adding Faster Firing.

Version History[]

The difference in base Heli speed has increased by implementing a nerf to base Heli Pilot and a buff to this upgrade, specifically designed to encourage more Path 2 crosspathing.

  • Buff Bigger Jets flight speed increased (67.5 → 70).
  • Buff Bigger Jets now improves MOAB Shove knockback.

  • Despite the name, the Heli Pilot's helicopter does not have visible jet engines before or after purchasing this upgrade. This applies to every game that the Heli Pilot has been in.
    • However, most helicopters drive their rotor using what is known as a turboshaft jet engine. This is a jet engine similar to those on winged aircraft, but modified so that the engine's primary output is spinning a shaft rather than expelling high velocity exhaust. This shaft is connected to the rotor of the helicopter. Thus the Bigger Jets upgrade likely increases the size of this turboshaft engine, giving the Heli Pilot a much more powerful rotor.
