Sample of towers with a variety of different damage types

Damage Type is the type of damage a certain attack inflicts. There are 10 different types of non-passive damage type: Normal, Acid, Sharp, Explosion, Cold, Glacier, Shatter, Energy, Plasma, and Fire. Certain damage types can be granted lead-popping or camo detection, but all types can affect a different set of bloon types between: Black, White, Purple, Lead, and Frozen.

Towers and Upgrades[edit | edit source]

Below is a list of damage types, special popping powers, attack style, attack behavior, and status effects applied to each attack. The only major statistic measured is damage to bloons, and this does not take into account extra attack speed, pierce, or range (see the Advanced Popology series for specific additional statistics of each upgrade in list form). The list of each towers' damage statistics are shown below:

Note: This does not include specific descriptions of Tower Buffs or Income Generation, and will only merely mention their types of attack; please see their respective pages for a more specific guide on their respective mechanics. An attack is defined as a "tower's act of taking an effort to do something". If there is a noteworthy special crosspath interaction that is worthy to mention (more specifically: those that cause changes in damage type, projectile count, damage per projectile, status effects) it will be mentioned as a special case. For the sake of semi-completeness, any "attack" counts for the table.
  • Any attack that deals damage directly or indirectly is considered an attack, and excludes purely income attacks, with exception of purely income-based abilities, and Farm and Monkeyopolis bananas/crates. Explanations are listed below.
  • Passive buffs such as Village buffs, Carrier Flagship buffs, and Sub Commander buffs will be mentioned, although not mentioned in specific detail. All of them will be the Passive damage type. Assume passive buffs are only within range unless stated otherwise.
  • Efforted buffs (i.e. Alch buffs and Overclock/Ultraboost buffs) count as "attacks", but again addressed in very minimal detail. Like passive buffs, all efforted buffs will be the Passive damage type. Assume efforted buffs are only within range unless stated otherwise. Self-buffs are not considered an attack unless it affects more than itself.
  • Some but not all methods of specific income generation such as Farm bananas are considered "attacks" because they are actively done by the tower itself. All specifically money-generating abilities such as Jungle's Bounty, Supply Drop, and IMF Loan are all considered attacks, albeit passive ones, because they all take user-inputted effort to start the "attack". Auto-income generation methods such as end-of-round income (e.g. Merchantman, Monkey Wall Street) do not count, however, because they are not integrated into abilities. However, Trade Empire passive buff still counts, only because it possesses the Merchantmen damage buff, but the Central Market global passive buff does not because it's purely income-based.
Please see the other tables to look for buffs or income generation. Additionally, assume the listed upgrades do not take into account crosspathing or sacrifices; please see their respective upgrade pages for information about special crosspathing benefits.
