The Black Border is a lustrous border, more esteemed than the Gold Border, awarded for one of three difficult feats in Bloons TD 6. The first is beating C.H.I.M.P.S. mode without exiting to the main menu or retrying any rounds. Doing so will award the player a black CHIMPS medal, as opposed to the red version. Some have even extended the definition of Black Bordering to include beating any gamemode without exiting to the main menu or retrying rounds. The second accomplishment is completing all medals/game modes of a map including the Black Border CHIMPS Medal. This will surround the map image with a glistening Black Border.

The third accomplishment is collecting all 64 Insta-Monkey crosspaths of a single tower, including the tier-5 versions. Similarly, this will surround the Insta-Monkey icon for that tower with a glistening black border. As there are 1,472 possible Insta-Monkeys that are randomly awarded, without any reliable method for choosing, incredible luck and time is needed to achieve all crosspaths of a given tower. To date, only a handful of players have touted a Black Border Insta-Monkey collection legitimately, leading many to consider it the most difficult achievement in Bloons TD 6.

Receiving Black Borders has no impact on actual gameplay, nor does it award any extra trophies, Monkey Money, or other rewards. It solely serves as a testament to the dedication and skill of a player's thorough completion of the game.


Individual Black Borders[]







  • The color of a Black Border is a lighter color of black. The in-game files for the Black CHIMPS badge describe it as "hematite", the color of an iron ore that has a glistening black color.
