Activated ability - Dart-blasting B12 flies escort, recharges over a short duration
~ Bloons Super Monkey 2 Flash Description.

Dart Ace is the Dart arm epic power upgrade in Bloons Super Monkey 2. When activated, it calls in a B12 Ace below the equipped arm, which rapidly shoots volleys of multiple darts in a tight angle for 10 seconds, before flying away for 15 seconds, without taking cooldown reduction into account.

Note that this upgrade is greatly nerfed in Bloons Supermonkey 2 Mobile, as its quantity of projectiles is reduced from 8 to 6, and it shoots darts over 2x as slowly as the Flash variant.

It costs 16,750 Blop Cash Icon on Flash and 335,000 BSM2M blopRed on Mobile.

Strategy[]

On Bloons Super Monkey 2 Flash, the Dart Ace is one of the best, if not the best, Arm Epic Powers in the game. Its biggest drawback is its low uptime relative to its cooldown, as it only lasts for 10 seconds but has a cooldown of 25 seconds, causing it to only be around for 40% of the time without any cooldown reduction. This does not stop it from being an excellent power, due to its rapid attack speed and sheer quantity of projectiles making it extremely powerful at popping all types of bloons.

This does not hold true in the Mobile version, which reduces the amount of projectiles by 2 (33.3% less projectiles) and reduces the attack speed by over half of the Flash Version's attack speed. Combined with Epic Powers not benefitting from any research except Hotter Cooldowns, this causes the Dart Ace to be a fairly poor Epic Power on the Mobile version.
