Charlie was an absentee on the first day of military school so he missed the most important rule of explosives handling. After lighting the fuse, STAND BACK. Nevertheless, he can blast his way out of any tricky situation.
~ BATTD Description

C4 Charlie is a Character in Bloons Adventure Time TD. He is unlocked in Haunted Swamp campaign Loch'd and Loaded on any difficulty. An explosives expert, Charlie operates like the Bomb Shooter, throwing bombs that can be upgraded to deal extra damage to MOABs and stun bloons, among other things.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

C4 Charlie serves as a Bomb Shooter analog for Bloons Adventure Time TD, firing off a simple explosive attack that packs a punch and is resisted by Black and Zebra Bloons. Typical upgrades such as Frag Bombs, MOAB Mauler and Bloon Impact make returns from main series BTD5 and BTD6.

As any normal cannon would, C4 Charlie is a phenomenal tower when it comes to blasting large piles of non-MOAB Class bloons, with upgrades like Bouncing Bombs and Double Bomb being very effective at maximizing Charlie's damage output on top the many resulting frags from each explosion. It can be seen that the sheer quantity of frags and explosions even outshines the MOAB Mauler upgrade in terms of raw power, as Trinkets that increase damage are more susceptible towards the attack type with many low damage attacks to magnify.

A weakness that Charlie inherits from the original towers is the lack of Black and Zebra popping outside of Frag Bombs, lacking common workarounds such as Bloon Impact being able to damage explosive-resistant bloons in BTD5 and BTD6. To compensate, C4 Charlie can purchase the ability Signal Flare, allowing him and other non-Camo detecting towers to attack Camo Bloons, allowing for the other major weakness of Cannons to be bypassed. A new threat in BATTD is also in the form of Ghost Bloons, preventing all forms of damage by explosive-type attacks. However the upgrade Burny Stuff will just easily burn through them.

The MOAB Mauler Can rip through MOABs with ease if given enough speed Trinkets and the Time Bomb Weapon. Though Engineers Blueprints may not seem like it would help, it will effect frag bombs and help a bit more at attacking MOAB Class Bloons.
