BTD5 Cannonship

Cannon Ship official artwork.

Cannon Ship is an upgrade for the Monkey Buccaneer in Bloons Tower Defense 5.

This upgrade adds a powerful, independently firing cannon to the Monkey Buccaneer.

The cannon allows the Monkey Buccaneer to pop frozen and lead bloons. Note that the cannon fires bombs separately from the main dart. The explosion size is the equivalent to a Bomb Tower with Bigger Bombs.

Bloons Tower Defense 5Edit

In Bloons TD 5, this upgrade is the 3rd upgrade of path 2 for the Monkey Buccaneer. It costs $1020 on Easy, $1200 on Medium, $1295 on Hard and $1440 on Impoppable.

There are no changes to this upgrade in Bloons TD 5 Mobile and Bloons TD 5 Deluxe.

Bloons Tower Defense 6Edit

In BTD6, Cannon Ship returns as the 3rd upgrade of Path 2 for the Monkey Buccaneer. Just like BTD5, it adds an independently shooting cannon that shoots bombs. These bombs explode up to 28 bloons per shot along with 8 sharp fragments in opposite directions that pop up to 1 bloon per fragment (similar to Frag Bombs). However, there is no automatic camo detection, since Crow's Nest is now alongside a different path to the Cannon Ship. Additionally, Cannon Ship also shoots hot burning grapes from the Hot Shot upgrade. It costs $900 on Medium.



  • This upgrade gives the Monkey Buccaneer slightly more range. This only occurs in Flash versions of the BTD5 series.
  • With this boost, it has more range than a 0-2 Super Monkey.
  • Ironically, this upgrade gives the effects of Dreadnaught despite not being a premium upgrade. It also has an explosion, making some people believe that this upgrade is actually better than Dreadnought.
  • The bombs look like 0-0 bomb tower but the explosion looks like 0-1 bomb tower.
  • The rapid fire upgrade combined with the cannon ship will make the cannon shoot faster.
  • The pop limit of the bomb is 40.
