Bloon Beacon is a game mechanic in Bloons Adventure Time TD which serves as an everyday event that allows the player to play a previously completed track to earn free Star Level Currency of any random type, including Cosmic Essence, along with Shards, and bonus Coins, and bonus XP.
There's no great hurry to complete Bloon Beacon challenges as the activation of a Bloon Beacon automatically sets going the countdown for the future availability of the next beacon. The current beacon will indicate a selected track. Previously completed levels of difficulty for that track will be indicated as immediately offering beacon rewards. However, players still retain the option of playing the track at a previously unplayed level of difficulty. When completed, that difficulty option will belatedly be highlighted as offering beacon rewards. It just needs to be played again. Bloon spawns and rounds will be exactly the same as what it would normally do without Bloon Beacon.
Bloon Beacon can be unlocked at Level 5. Bloon Beacon active once every 4 hours, before resetting to a new map and reward. Player may speed up cooldown of Bloon Beacon, 15 minutes per ads watch or 1 gem per 5 minutes.
Prior to the 1.2 Update, each time the Bloon Beacon was available, it would direct to a random track that the player has already completed on a random difficulty that the player has also already completed for that track. The reward system was also not dynamic, meaning a Bloon Beacon on an Extreme Difficulty yielded as much Star Level Currency as one at a Normal difficulty.
