Co Op BTD6 Main Menu

Main Menu of Co-Op

Co-Op Mode is a new mode added to Bloons TD 6 in an update that was released on 2nd July, 2019 for BTD6, on Version 11.0. It is unlocked at Level 20. It involves 2-4 cooperating on a random or private chosen game of BTD6 on a chosen map and difficulty.

Co-Op Mode can be accessed on the main menu. Players can either play on Quick Matches or create/join Private Matches. Each player will be assigned a specific number (P1, P2, P3, or P4) depending on their timing to a Co-Op Match.

Players are limited by their respective sides, usually a specific quadrant(s), unless the tower territory distribution is modified by a specific map. Some maps may have universal territories, as indicated by a colored "A" symbol, to represent an "All Players" territories. Players may only transport their own towers via Support Chinook only to within their allocated territory(s). Collectable items, such as bananas from Banana Farms, are only able to be picked up by the owner of the tower(s) that outputted the collectable items. In addition, other players cannot modify other players' towers or sacrifice them, with the only exception being Sun Temple and True Sun God/Avatar of the Vengeful Monkey sacrifices. However, abilities that lack the possibility of accidental sabotage such as Jungle's Bounty (counts everyone's Banana Farms in range) can become influenced or can influence other players' towers.

Every player starts with the same amount of cash minus $100 (-$50 in Half Cash) for 2-Player, and minus $50 per additional player (-$25 per additional player in Half Cash). While playing the game, the full cash is gained for a particular player's cash account while popping bloons or generating cash. Players can share or request cash during the game on at anytime via the Co-Op Communication Menu on the right-hand side of the screen.

Before playing each game, players will be able to choose their own Hero; this is to be done before starting up Co-Op Mode, as there is currently no way to change Hero while waiting for players to connect to a Co-Op Mode game. In addition, players are allowed their own set of Tier-5 towers (i.e. up to 4 of a single Tier-5 on each side, up to 8 for Crossbow Master with special MK), which allows each player to decide on their own sets of Tier-5 towers without another disrupting other players' Tier-5 tower selection progress.

If one player has a given Monkey Knowledge upgrade, the upgrade is applied to all players. For example, if one player has the Bonus Monkey! Knowledge upgrade, every player will start with a free Dart Monkey. However, multiple instances of the same upgrade will not stack, so even if two or more players have the Bonus Monkey! upgrade, only one free Dart Monkey will be given to each player. If a Monkey Knowledge upgrade does not "apply to each player" and only contributes to the overall game instead of each player, then only one instance of any given upgrade will be used. For example, if a player has the Mana Shield Monkey Knowledge upgrade, only one instance of the Mana Shield will be present (i.e. only 25 bonus lives.)

Additionally, Co-Op Daily Challenges may appear around 2 times per week; one on Sunday and another on Wednesday.

Co-OperationEdit

Co-Op BTD6 Comms Menu

Opened Communication menu of Co-Op

Players are able to request and exchange cash from one player to another and send emotes with in-built functions. To access Co-Op related communicational commands, tap the Co-Op button on the right of the screen to open.

Once on the menu, the subject player may request cash by tapping "Request" button. Every other player will be alerted that the subject player requested cash by two alerts: an exclamation mark popup next to their player number, followed by an alert sound effect. The player can also tap the emotes button to open a list of emotes, which can then be sent to other players. The other players will be alerted of the emote by the subject player.

Players can mute other player's cash requests or emotes by pressing that player's mute button on the menu.

If the player(s) lose all their lives, any of the available players must press the Continue button in order to continue (unless CHIMPS Mode, Deflation Mode, or any other mode that limits use of Continues). Players may restart, but only players who presses restart will be redirected to a restarted match.

Available emotesEdit

Here is a list of the available emotes that can be sent to other players.

  • "Hi!"
  • "Ready!"
  • "Well done"

  • A Lead Bloon, likely to be used to warn against rounds with lead bloons such as rounds 28, 30, 37, 38, 45, 50, 59, 63, 69, 75, 90 and 95.
  • A Zebra Bloon, Rainbow Bloon, and Ceramic Bloon, likely to be used to signal against thermal bloons or rainbow/ceramic rushes such as rounds 26, 31, 34, 35, 37, 38, 39, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 69, 70, 71, 72, 74, 76, 78, 79, 83 and 91.
  • A MOAB, BFB, ZOMG, and BAD, likely to be used to notify others to prepare MOAB defenses against rounds such as 40, 50, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 60, 61, 62, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99 and 100.

  • A piggy bank, likely to notify others about farming or to collect Monkey Banks.
  • Icons of Support Chinook health crate, Jungle's Bounty, and Merchantmen, likely to notify others about farming.
  • The hero icons of each hero that the players on the team is using.

Special tower interactionsEdit

There are some interesting interactions that are worth noting that may cause changes in tower behavior and player strategy, including:

20190725211742 1

Trade Empires stacking across multiple players

  • After ending each round, the total gained Hero XP is divided evenly to each player's placed Hero.
  • Level 4+ Benjamin's Skimming income generation will increase every player's income evenly (so +$0.5 per bloon for 2 players, $0.33 per bloon for 3, $0.25 for 4). This income generation, however, does not stack with other players' Benjamin Skimming income generation (?).
  • Jungle's Bounty (x4x Druid) affects all players' nearby Banana Farms within the Druid's own bounty range.
  • Super Monkey Fan Club (x4x Dart) affect up to 10 nearby Dart Monkeys regardless of owners, respectively. (?)
  • Plasma Monkey Fan Club (x5x Dart) affect up to 20 nearby Dart Monkeys regardless of owners. (?)
  • Total Transformation (x5x Alchemist) only affects the player's own towers. (?)
  • Spirit of the Forest (x5x Druid) on-track thorned bramble growths can stack with other Spirits of the Forest, producing extra damage to all bloons on screen.
  • Sub Commander (xx5 Sub), Energizer (5xx Sub), Prince of Darkness (xx5 Wizard), and other Tier 5 towers that add buffs to other towers do not stack their own buffs when multiple of them are placed. However, multiple Sub Commanders without the Sub Admiral MK can still add limited-range buffs to Monkey Subs nearby.
  • Trade Empire (xx5 Buccaneer) will stack effects with other player's Merchantmen. The parameters of this require further testing.
  • Shinobi Tactics and Poplust buffs can only stack up to 20 times and 5 times, respectively, towards their respective towers (Ninjas and Druids, respectively), regardless of player ownership.
  • Alchemist buffs and Monkey Village buffs can target any players' towers.
  • Multiple Obyn Greenfoots use their own respective Wall of Trees for each respective player.
  • Overclock and Ultraboost abilities may be used on any available tower, regardless of player ownership.
  • Adora can only sacrifice towers owned by the player who owns her.
  • The "Come On Let's Go" MK is separated from each player, and thus is treated for each player as though the other players' Primary Monkeys do not exist.

MapsEdit

Unlike BTD5, all maps are available for Co-Op. However, each map has different territory distribution boundaries depending on the nature of the map. Some maps, such as Firing Range and all Expert Maps, do not have any boundaries; these maps are marked on the map display with a colored "A" symbol to indicate that all pieces of land are universal. The game uses the same configuration for 3-player games as it does with 4-player games, but one of the quadrants will be available to all players. The following key will be used to identify maps' configurations:

  • All = All players can place towers anywhere
  • Horizontal = Split a horizontal line across the center of the map
  • Vertical = Split by a vertical line down the center of the map
  • Down Diagonal = Split by a diagonal line from the top-left to the bottom-right of the map
  • Up Diagonal = Split by a diagonal line from the bottom-left to the top-right of the map
  • Straight 4 = Split into quadrants by a horizontal and a vertical line.
  • Diagonal 4 = Split into quadrants by 2 diagonal lines.

Co-op daily challenges can overwrite a map's configuration.

BugsEdit

CoOpDCGlitch

Player 1 can send an Obyn Greenfoot emote even though the Co-Op Challenge doesn't allow the usage of heroes.

  • If too many people join a private match at the same time, the co-op match can glitch. This was patched on version 11.1.
  • Players used to not earn progress towards achievements such as Survivor or Inflated in the game (reaching round 100 on Apopalypse or Deflation respectively). However, these achievements can still be earned outside the game (in Steam achievements, Game Center, etc.). This was patched on version 11.1.
  • There is a known bug (commonly known as the "Thanos Snap") where if you reach a certain round, at the end of the round when the server refreshes the map many towers can disappear, which can be infuriating and may cost the game. This bug occurs due to poor server communication or when crashing other players from the game, and it is known to happen later in the game, usually at or around rounds 59-60, rounds 75-80, and rounds 90-100. Depending on the severity, it might only affect one player's towers or all the towers besides the ones placed early in the game. While this glitch can still happen, it's now less likely to occur since version 12.0.
    • It was presumed that having an IMF Loan could be the cause of activating this glitch, but this was proven false when this glitch even occurred on C.H.I.M.P.S.
  • If the above glitch occurs, one player might get the Defeat screen but the other players can get the Victory screen. Only the players who reach the Victory screen will get the rewards; the player who got the Defeat screen will earn nothing.
  • If a player leaves the game and the person who gets the leaving player's hero has the other costume of the hero active, it will change to the new costume when the hero levels up. For example, if the player who left had the regular Gwendolin skin but the new player who has Gwendolin has the Scientist Skin active, it will change to Scientist Gwendolin when it levels up. This also affects voice lines.
  • Since version 11.1, sometimes the "P# has left the game" message can reappear for a number of times later.
  • In some cases, it might be impossible to give money to a player even though they are in the game. This has been patched around version 12.0.
CoOpDCBuggeeRewards

Top: Co-op rewards displayed correctly, middle: co-op rewards displayed as a normal map attempt, bottom: co-op rewards displayed and given correctly

  • If the server refreshes the map and the Pre-Game Prep MK is enabled, the road spikes will be reset after the refresh. Even if the road spikes run out, when the server refreshes, the road spikes will come back. It can be particularly helpful on some maps like End of the Road, Haunted, and Quad.
    • This has been adjusted with the new restart mechanic on version 13.0; now whenever the server refreshes, all of the Pre-Game Prep road spikes will disappear.
  • When restarting a Co-Op Game with the "Restart" button, the free Dart Monkey from the "Bonus Monkey" MK does not become available again. This does not occur for the "Military Conscription" halved Military Monkeys MK.
  • Likewise on older versions of the game, restarting a Co-Op game may keep all Ceramic Bloons from MOAB-Class Bloons "Super Ceramics", even before round 81.
  • On version 12.0, there are numerous disconnections that may happen suddenly or even before the round starts.
  • On version 12.0, it might be impossible to place towers on a certain part of the map after a player has left. This does not happen on maps where the player can place towers anywhere at the start.
  • In Co-Op Challenges, the available hero emotes will always be the hero the players starts with before starting the challenge, even if it the hero is forced and no one has the hero prior to starting the challenge. This can result in players having emotes of other heroes that cannot be used in the challenge.
  • Co-Op Challenges does not display rewards correctly on the teammate screen, but will appear correctly after the Co-Op Challenge is complete.
  • If the game is lagging, you might be able to stack other towers on top of each other while waiting for the server to communicate.
  • if the player selects a tower and then another player upgrades that tower, the upgrade paths won't update even though the artwork updates
  • if the player has the jukebox enabled and leaves an in-progress co-op game, the music from the game plays on top of the main menu music. This seems to only occur when a round is in progress

TriviaEdit

  • Ninja Kiwi released Bloons Tower Defense 6's Co-op mode in update 11.0, which allows up to four players to play at the same time.
  • For some tracks (such as Firing Range), players can place towers anywhere on the map.
  • In contrast to BTD5, even if all other players leave the game, a Co-Op medal will be awarded to the remaining player(s) for a win.
  • If all players have the same hero, some buffs will not stack.
  • If a co-op game is set to a map with quadrants, and a player left, the space for that player will be available to all players, also, the towers/powers that are left are also available to all players to access.
    • Towers/powers are distributed evenly between the remaining players
  • Unlike most Tier-5 towers, only one Avatar of the Vengeful Monkey may be on the map at any one time. In addition, other players' The Anti-Bloons and Legends of the Night will be disabled if an Avatar of the Vengeful Monkey is on the map.
  • It is possible on Quick Matches to be involved in difficulties that cannot be encountered by normal means, such as Easy Reverse or Medium Magic Monkeys Only. If these modes are completed, the player will only be rewarded for the Monkey Money and earn no medal for completion of the mode.
  • If the player completes a match for a mode that is not unlocked, the player will still earn the medal for completing the mode if the team wins. For example, if the player hasn't unlocked C.H.I.M.P.S. for the map but joins and completes a C.H.I.M.P.S. game for that map, the player will earn the C.H.I.M.P.S. medal despite not having the Impoppable medal.
  • Even though the badge for a red Co-Op C.H.I.M.P.S. medal exists in the game, it cannot be obtained as the player cannot leave a Co-Op game and come back, meaning that the players who complete C.H.I.M.P.S. on Co-Op will always get the black medal.
  • All of the maps except for Bloody Puddles has been solved on Co-Op C.H.I.M.P.S.
