Bloon Buster Mortars smash through 2 layers of bloons at once!
~ Flash description

Bloon Buster is the 3rd upgrade in path 1 in Bloons TD 5. It pops 2 layers of Bloons. It is powerful against a group of Bloons. The Mortar Monkey's color changes from green to white. Groups of Bloon Buster Mortar Monkeys can really thin massive amounts of Bloons.

It $680 on Easy, $800 on Medium, $865 on Hard and $960 on Impoppable.



  • It adds the explosion sound again to the Mortar Tower in BTD5.
    • Not only that, but it also makes the explosions smaller again. This is probably unintentional.
  • There is a small orange skull symbol on the Bloon Buster in BTD5.
  • It was the name of WW1 Anti Balloon plane units.
  • In BTD5, the monkey controlling the Mortar Tower has the same suit as a Glue Hose Glue Gunner.
  • Using this can reduce a Lead Bloon to four Pink Bloons, making it much more effective against them, especially with Burny Stuff (as this reduces those to Blue Bloons).
  • So far, this is the only upgrade that was downgraded from a tier 3 to a tier 2 upgrade in BTD6.
