Bloon Research Lab

The Bloon Research Lab is a purchasable building in Bloons Monkey City that allows the player to research different bloons. Once a bloon has been researched, it can be used to attack other players with.

The Bloon Research Lab costs $700 to purchase, takes 15 minutes to build, and takes up one tile, and uses BMCF-Power-Icon20. When bought, it will start with Red Bloons, Blue Bloons, and Green Bloons. Level 8 is required to unlock this building (although Level 9 is required for Monkey vs Monkey).

  • Other than Monkey Vs. Monkey, it is impossible to have a tile with Zebra Bloons as the highest-ranked Bloon in the browser Version.
  • For Heavy Bloon Armor and above, the animations in the lab probably are testing the abilities of the Bloons, as the lead Bloon getting hit by seeking darts is probably to test the strength of the lead layer.
  • When the player's highest bloon is an M.O.A.B, the MOAB is struck by lightning.
    • It displays the wrong number of ceramic bloons, in this case 7.
