|“||Uses a long range Crossbow that can pop 3 layers of Bloon for every hit.||”|
|~ Official Description|
Crossbow is the third upgrade of Path 3 for the Dart Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It turns the Dart Monkey into a crossbow operator. The Crossbow pops 3 layers instead of one, has 3 pierce instead of 2, and has a 75% larger range than that of an unupgraded Dart Monkey.
It costs $530 on Easy, $625 on Medium, $675 on Hard, and $750 on Impoppable.
A 0-0-3 Dart Monkey will wear a purple headband, a 2-0-3 will also be wearing a purple headband as well as a red tailband, but the 0-2-3 will wear a red headband above the purple headband with purple cuffs, like all the other variants.
- A 0-2-3 Crossbow is generally better than a 2-0-3. While the pierce bonuses from the top path allow the crossbow to pierce through 6 Bloons in a single shot (opposed to 3 without crosspathing), the 33% faster attack speed provided by the middle path far outweighs it in most situations.
- During Version 7.0, famous YouTubers have managed to spend less than $2000 to win Logs Deflation Mode using just Gwendolin and one 0-0-3 Crossbow.
