|“||Powerful jets make Heli move much faster.||”|
|~ BTD6 Description|
Bigger Jets is the first upgrade of the second path for the Heli Pilot in Bloons TD 6. It increases the flight speed for the Heli Pilot from 40 to 70, for a total of 75% faster flight speed. There is a special interaction with MOAB Shove that increases knockback potency versus MOAB-class.
It costs $255 on Easy, $300 on Medium, $325 on Hard, and $360 on Impoppable.
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.
- It is noteworthy that Bigger Jets does make the Heli Pilot move a lot faster than the base Heli Pilot.
- 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.
- 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.
