Bloon shattering explosions do massive damage and can stun MOAB-Class Bloons.
~ In-game description

Bloon Crush is the fifth upgrade of Path 1 for the Bomb Shooter in Bloons TD 6.

As an upgrade from Bloon Impact, Bloon Crush can stun both regular bloons and MOAB-class Bloons for 2s, making it extremely effective in later rounds where many ZOMGs and DDTs are spawned. Combined with its fair attack speed, it can essentially permanently stun any bloon (except the BAD). It now pops any bloon type, including Black Bloons, which means it can also affect DDTs effectively.

As with many of the Path 1 crosspath benefits, the 5-0-2 Bloon Crush crosspath increases potency of Frag Bombs, producing 16 powerful fragments. Each fragment deals 12 damage plus another +12 versus Ceramics, and gains a massive pierce increase from 3 to 20, a massive DPS bonus in comparison to the stats of the 4-0-2 Bloon Impact.

This upgrade costs $46,750 on Easy, $55,000 on Medium, $59,400 on Hard, and $66,000 on Impoppable.

Description[]

Appearance[]

This upgrade is significantly larger than its predecessor, sporting a dark blue color scheme with lighter blue stripes, as well as a spiked orange-red barrel and large wheels with black tires and spiked red hubcaps. On the back of the dark blue body is an emblem of a red right-handed fist (thumb on right-side palm side facing up).

Mechanics[]

Bloon Crush improves the stun applied by Bloon Impact, causing it to last 2 seconds and affect all stunnable MOAB-class bloons. It also improves base damage to 12.

Crosspathing with Frag Bombs causes the frags to deal 12 damage, 24 to Ceramics, with 20 pierce, instead of the 3 and 3 respectively for Bloon Impact; however there are still only 16 of them. They also inherit the increased lifespan and size.

Targeting Priorities[]

Bloon Crush targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It shoots straight movement projectiles.

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

Strategy[]

Summary[]

The Bloon Crush absolutely halts almost every round up to 99 as long as there is damage support for the dense clumps of MOABs and Super Ceramics, such as from Sun Avatar. Unfortunately, the Bloon Crush lacks self-sufficient damage and comes with a very high price, making it fairly difficult to use in a normal game without decent income generation. In freeplay late-game, Bloon Crush occupies the role of a staller, which makes it fairly useful in normal late-game too.

Tips[]

  • For the Bloon Crush, it is strongly advised to place it on "Strong" target priority so it can focus on MOAB-class Bloons.
  • Due to the increase in stun time, even without crosspathing the Bloon Crush can reliably stun MOABs. However, the 5-2-0 Bloon Crush crosspath is usually the best option if there are too many bloons nearby to keep its stun reliability, though 5-0-2 offers much stronger fragments.
  • An extremely powerful combo is to use Bloon Crush with Pop and Awe and Striker Jones. The stun from Bloon Crush roughly triples the damage from Pop and Awe due to the latter's special properties, and Striker Jones can reset the Pop and Awe ability, provide additional stun and increase all properties of both towers. This combo struggles against the BAD, so some BAD-specific support (like a Perma-Spike or First Strike Capability) is recommended.
  • Place a Bloon Crush in areas where the track intersects itself multiple times. This will make the Bloon Crush more effective, as it will be able to stun MOAB-class Bloons multiple times over instead of just in a small area.
  • Use Jungle Drums to increase the attack speed of the Bloon Crush to ensure that it stuns as many Bloons as possible.
    • A Radar Scanner is also recommended as it will allow the Bloon Crush to target DDTs.
    • Striker Jones' ability Artillery Command at level 20 is useful as it gives double damage and pierce to all Bomb Shooters on the screen for 10 seconds. Additionally, at level 4, Striker Jones makes all Bomb Shooters on screen fire ~11.1% faster (or ~23.4% at level 18)

Version History[]

Bloon Crush has been slightly buffed overall over time. The biggest buff here is refreshing stuns, allowing Bloon Crush to permastall bloons and blimps if hitting them persistingly. Some massive changes are given to the Frags crosspath in order to give this option some DPS value.

7.0
  • Buff Bloon Crush damage increased (6 → 12).
8.0
  • Buff Bloon Crush (along with Bloon Impact) can now refresh their own bloon stuns.
16.0
  • Buff Bloon Crush range increased (40 → 43).
18.0
  • Buff 502 Bomb Shooter increases pierce of frags from 1 → 2.
  • Buff 502 Bomb Shooter increases damage of frags from 1 → 2.
  • Buff 502 Bomb Shooter increases lifespan of frags from 0.191s‬ → 0.322s.
22.0
Some low tier Bomb pierce has been shifted further up into the 2xx Heavy Bombs upgrade to [...], but the price of these upgrades and [...] have both been buffed to benefit other variations of bomb better. Bloon Impact's price was increased as it didn't need to benefit from this buff, and a buff was made to 502's Bloon Impact's frags to alter this underused crosspath.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Bloon Crush pierce increased (48 → 50).
  • Buff 502 Bloon Crush frag damage increased from 3 → 12.
  • Buff 502 Bloon Crush frag pierce increased from 2 → 3.
25.0
  • Change Indirect buff, as Bloon Impact no longer stuns Black Bloons without support.
31.0
The Frags crosspath for top path Bomb Shooter has always been quite a poor choice, trying to compete with attack speed as a benefit for stun utility isn’t going to ever work out so we have instead gone the route of turning the frags crosspath into a DPS/Stun hybrid with a lot of small buffs to frag power.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff 5-0-2 Bloon Crush frag damage gains +12 bonus damage to Ceramics. Base damage remains 12.
  • Buff 5-0-2 Bloon Crush gains more frags 8 → 16
  • Buff 5-0-2 Bloon Crush frag pierce increased 3 → 20

Trivia[]

  • In Version 1.0, Bloon Crush was the most expensive Primary Monkey upgrade. This was overtaken by MOAB Domination until Version 30.0, when MOAB Domination's price was finally changed back to its original price.
