In his armored tank, the Captain is a no-nonsense powerhouse on the battlefield.
~ Bloons TD 6

Captain Churchill is a Hero in Bloons Tower Defense 6 who was added to the game in the 2.0 Update. He pilots a tank, as such he utilizes explosives as his main form of attack. The tank launches explosive shells that generate multiple explosions, and leveling him up adds more weaponry to the tank. Churchill is currently the most expensive hero in the game so far, costing $1,700 on Easy, $2,000 on Medium, $2,160 on Hard, and $2,400 on Impoppable. In addition, he is only unlockable by a one-off purchase of BloonjaminsIcon 2,500.


Captain Churchill will start upgrading himself every round upon placement. He earns more XP each round to unlock his next upgrade irrespective of how many bloons he pops. His upgrades can also be immediately bought with cash, though the amount of cash required to purchase the next upgrade will typically increase as the upgrades get higher, making self-upgrading an important element for his overall power.

Captain Churchill requires 1.71x (2x before Version 8.0) as much experience to upgrade towards each level compared to Quincy, Gwendolin, Striker Jones, or Obyn Greenfoot.

His tank also spins and acts differently when Churchill levels up. It costs BloonjaminsIcon2500 to purchase this skin, and it can only be unlocked upon purchasing Churchill.

  • He is a very expensive hero, but he is useful against MOAB-class bloons later on in the game, especially with Armor Piercing Shells ability and the MOAB Barrage ability.
  • Since he levels up slowly compared to other heroes, he benefits most from the Empowered Heroes Monkey Knowledge, a Monkey Knowledge that allows all heroes to automatically start at Level 3.
  • Churchill cannot pop DDTs without abilities, so be wary if you use Churchill as your main defense against MOAB-class bloons.
  • He is somewhat map specific as he is best used on maps with straight lines to shoot down so he can maximise the amount of explosions from each of his shots.
  • His slow leveling rate is not necessarily a bad thing. Because he is stronger than most heroes relative to overall levels, this makes Churchill a good candidate to pair with Overclock, for higher overall uptime.
  • MOAB Barrage ability is weakens the strongest MOAB-class bloons into much more manageable chunks, but like Admiral Brickell's Mega Mine, Churchill's MOAB Barrage ability can also cause more work by spawning many groups of weaker blimps or Ceramics. However, try pair this ability with the Armor Piercing Shells ability to take advantage of the extra damage versus larger groups of Ceramics and MOABs.


  • MOAB Barrage does not target blimps correctly. It is intended to always target the largest blimp on screen, but it appears to target the last blimp on screen with the last 9 missiles. Despite 14.0 supposedly fixing the bug, the bug still occurs.
