Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Signal Flare, Cleansing Foam, and a submerged Monkey Sub with Submerge and Support are really helpful because they remove the threat of Camo Bloons.
  • Ninja Monkeys upgraded at least 1/0 are very helpful, as they can see Camo Bloons and throw projectiles quickly.
  • Right after the update, there was a glitch after playing this and starting a regular game, all the bloons were Camo Bloons. This would increase total difficulty of the game. However this was fixed in an update.
  • As per normal, MOAB-Class Bloons and the bloons which spawn from them will neither be Camo Bloons or Regrowth Bloons. That means that M.O.A.B. Maulers can be helpful, even without a Radar Scanner or Meerkat Spy.
  • The Triple Lives premium will make the player start off with three lives instead of one.
  • Beware of round 33. There are Camo Regrowth Rainbow Bloons instead of Yellow Bloons.
    • The iOS version doesn't consist these, so the player has an advantage.
  • Monkey Villages that have the upgrade Radar Scanner are extremely useful, as any tower in its range will be able to see Camo Bloons.
  • This is the only Special Mission on Snake River.
  • The difficulty played on this mission is Medium on Bloons Tower Defense 5 Mobile and Steam.
  • The Pontoon cannot be used in this mission.
