Bloons Wiki

Throws a single dart at nearby bloons. Short range and low pierce but cheap.
~ In-game description

The Dart Monkey is a Primary-class tower that was released in the initial release of Bloons TD 6. The tower retains its name and role from the Bloons TD 4, 5, and Classic game generations, with significant additions. It was the first non-hero tower to be revealed for Bloons TD 6, introduced on around 26th April 2018. Dart Monkey, as with previous mainstream games, is the first tower to be unlocked in the game, and is introduced by Tutorial Monkey as part of the tutorial for Bloons TD 6.

Dart Monkey attacks at a moderate speed, throwing a dart every 0.95s. Darts deal 1 damage and hit up to 2 bloons per dart. It has a moderately low range of 32.

It costs $170 on Easy, $200 on Medium, $215 on Hard, and $240 on Impoppable.

Description[]

The Dart Monkey is a non-clothed monkey with a tuft of hair for his hairstyle. As with all monkeys in BTD6, he has got big circular eyes, thick brown eyebrows, and fur around most of his head except his face. His fur is brown and his skin is a slightly lighter tone of brown. His belly is oval-shaped with two angular ovals above, colored the same as his skin. His belly also features a small belly button. He carries a dart on his right hand.

Overall, he looks not too different compared to his BTD5 counterpart outside of having the general BTD6 art style. There are minor differences to the Dart Monkey's visual appearance, however.

Dart Monkey is one of the first towers to be teased prior to the release of BTD6. Its base tower image was displayed as part of the way to convince players of BTD5 that BTD6 is still in production. Later, the Dart Monkey was teased in future BTD6 teasers until the official release of BTD6.

Many changes have occurred for the Dart Monkey, the most significant of which is that the base 0-0-0 tower can now pop two bloons per shot instead of one and both the Sharp Shots and Razor Sharp Shots upgrades have been moved to the Spike-O-Pult path. Another significant change is that Dart Monkey now has access to new upgrades that increase attack speed permanently, a first for Dart Monkey. In addition to this is an entirely new set of higher-tier upgrades dedicated to crossbows.

Path 1 is themed around increasing the Dart Monkey's pierce. It starts with increased pierce to darts, then conversion into a Spike-O-Pult which then upgrades into a Juggernaut that can pop Lead Bloons and finally the Ultra-Juggernaut for immense grouped Bloon destruction.

Path 2 is about speed and projectile count. The first two upgrades are pure attack speed increases, something not yet given to the Dart Monkey in the Bloons TD series before. The third upgrade is Triple Shot, allowing it to shoot three darts per shot instead of one. The final two upgrades provide abilities to turn many nearby Dart Monkeys into Super Monkeys for a short time.

Path 3 focuses on more range and damage, with the second upgrade, Enhanced Eyesight, granting camo detection. Most of the upgrades provide extra range to the Dart Monkey, but the Upper Path 3 provides extra damage on top, including semi-random critical hits. The final upgrade, Crossbow Master, gives the Dart Monkey significantly more attack speed, damage, range and pierce. It can also pop any bloon type.

The Dart Monkey is a Primary Monkey.

Target Priorities[]

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

20.0
Dart Monkey at its core is an early game focus tower, so we added some projectile speed options to try and help with its tendency to miss faster Bloons. Spike-o-pult's rate was also increased and damage type changed to shatter to be more versatile of a stepping stone in niche setups saving for Juggernaut
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff 3-x-x Spike-O-Pult can now pop frozen Bloons.
  • Buff 3-x-x Spike-O-Pult attack rate increased (1.25 → 1.15).
  • Buff x-x-2 Enhanced Eyesight projectile speed increased (300 → 330).
  • Buff x-x-3 Crossbow projectile speed increased (300 → 360).
  • Buff x-x-4 Sharp Shooter Eyesight projectile speed increased (300 → 400).
22.0
We're happy enough with most of Dart Monkey's bottom path, but the T4 stepping stone has always felt pretty undesirable for the price point compared to T3 so we have just increased the attack rate slightly at tier 4.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Sharp Shooter reload time reduced from 0.95s to 0.85s. Does not affect Crossbow Master reload time.
23.0
While we're happy with Dart Monkey being a more niche or early use tower, too many people were finding Juggernaut itself even further niche or lackluster on first impression. While retaining the overpower power potential we've added a beefy impact to each individual target hit, and we've tweaked sharpshooter slightly to provide similar power but with more of a speed focus to enable more distinct crosspath choice between speed and pierce.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Juggernaut damage increased (1 → 2).
  • Nerf Juggernaut pierce reduced (100 → 50).
  • Buff Sharp Shooter attack rate increased (0.85s → 0.75s).
  • Nerf Sharp Shooter damage reduced (6 → 5).
  • Change Crossbow Master is completely unaffected by these changes. Despite NK stating that all Tier 5 Dart Monkeys are not affected by this change, only the Crossbow Master damage is unchanged. Ultra-Juggernaut's small secondary Juggernaut balls are affected by this change, but not for the main large Ultra-Jugg balls.
24.0
The previous sharpshooter rework caused more trouble than intended in setups without much other cleanup by popping Black Bloons into large clusters of reds which then clogged up the pierce. We decided to keep the buffed attack speed value as well as adding back the stronger damage value.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Sharp Shooter damage increased (5 → 6). Does not affect Crossbow Master.
25.0
For new players, camo is the first real game mechanic that presents a wall for new players. To combat this we have swapped the initial unlock costs of Spike-o-pult & Crossbow to nudge new players more towards upgrading down the camo path for Dart Monkeys first.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Nerf Spike-o-pult XP unlock cost increased from 1,900 XP → 2,100 XP.
  • Buff Crossbow XP unlock cost reduced from 2,100 XP → 1,900 XP.
26.0
While overall good, the difficulty of using PMFC to its full potential doesn't feel quite worth it so price has been cut to make it a little easier to reach.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Plasma Fan Club price reduced from $50,000 to $45,000.
28.0
Instead of saying the same thing each time; many specific crosspaths that add a 'camo specialty' to a tower end up being viewed as rather inferior crosspaths due to camo being quite available to pick up through other methods. To give these upgrades more use even with other forms of camo reveal in play, we have added a brand new Camo Prioritization option that is added to the towers when taking this crosspath. When enabled this filter combines the selected target method with Camo Prioritization (e.g. Strong Camo would work through all Camos in strength order, then revert to normal Strong until any new Camos show up). Individual Monkeys are called out below.
~ Ninja Kiwi, referring to Camo Prioritization
  • Buff Enhanced Eyesight now grants Dart Monkey the new Camo Prioritization filter.
  • Change Dart Paragon has had a slight performance change to improve bit rate issues when streaming. This will not change power in any way.
30.0
Juggernaut relying on ricochets felt too niche in the current game, sadly excelling in far too few situations, so instead the Ceramic damage strength has been increased leading a little better into the T5 and benefiting it in more general straight line situations. Crossbow Master is pretty much around the entry level T5 that we want, but a little too expensive for something that brings no extra utility.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Juggernaut ceramic bonus increased from +2 -> +3
  • Buff Crossbow Master price $25,000 -> $23,500
31.0
To add a little more synergetic crosspath use for the Juggernaut 402 crosspath, xx2 will now also grant bonus projectile lifespan, this applies to any use of that crosspath though we feel it will in particular pair nicely with the ricocheting projectiles. Juggernaut in general is also seeing a small utility knockback buff to help it carry on a little longer into the game.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Long Range Darts also increases projectile lifespan +15%
  • Buff Enhanced Eyesight also increases projectile lifespan +20%
  • Buff Juggernaut now applies a speed-based knockback onto non-blimp bloons similarly to Buckshot except for 0.1s.

Bug Fixes and other changes[]

3.0
  • Dart Monkeys will no longer miss bloons directly in front of them.

  • Master Double Cross (a Monkey Knowledge that allows you to have two Crossbow Masters at once) now works more consistently.
11.0
  • Placing a Dart Monkey Insta-Monkey will no longer consume all of your free Dart Monkeys.
12.1
  • Buff x-x-5 Crossbow Master's base attack damage (correctly) increased (5 → 6).
    • This was the result of a 12.0 Sharp Shooter buff not being inherited by Crossbow Master until this bug fix.
20.0
  • Master Double Cross no longer allows you to use 1 Crossbow Master in Daily Challenges where this tower is prohibited.
24.0
  • x-4-x Super Monkey Fan Club description has been updated with more detail.
27.2

Trivia[]

  • In the middle of the Hedge map, there is a Dart Monkey statue that rotates 90 degrees when it is tapped.
  • The fifth tier on path 3 has a similar color scheme to the hero Quincy.
  • The Dart Monkey is the second tower to receive plushies of them, the first being the Super Monkey.
    • The October 8th 2021 NK blog suggests that Makeship, Ninja Kiwi's fundraising partner, will likely allow NK to fundraise other limited-time plushes other than Dart Monkey Plush, given how overwhelmingly well the Dart Monkey Plush sold.
