Extreme accuracy and muzzle velocity cause up to 18 layers of bloon to be popped per shot - enough to destroy an entire Ceramic Bloon!

Erases 18 layers of bloon per shot - enough to destroy a ceramic.
~ BMC Mobile description

Deadly Precision is the 3rd upgrade for path 1 of the Sniper Monkey. With this upgrade, the sniper monkey can pop 18 layers of bloons at a time, sufficient to pop a whole Ceramic Bloon (Ceramic layer pops in 10 hits, and there are 8 descendants) but cannot pop an entire Super Ceramic. Since its firing speed is not high, this would be a lot more effective when paired in groups. The purple beret now has changed to black.


  • In the mission Fast Upgrades, this tower can be extremely helpful for some rounds.
  • This tower is also very effective in "The Crucible", destroying ceramic bloons with one hit at high speed.
  • The only problem about this tower is that other towers can destroy the Ceramics and release more bloons before the Sniper can attack the Ceramics due to the Sniper's slow attack speed, making the Sniper have to shoot multiple times instead of once.
  • If Deadly Precision Sniper pops a M.O.A.B. by itself, then it will become 64 Blue Bloons rather than 4 Ceramic Bloons. The same thing occurs if it is upgraded to Cripple MOAB. 64 Blue Bloons are very hard to pop for Sniper Monkeys even with Semi-Automatic Rifle. This can be prevented by letting the Sniper deal one hit with 0/0 upgrades, then upgrading it rapidly to 3/x or 4/x. Then, when the M.O.A.B. is popped, it will pop into 4 Ceramic Bloons, which the Sniper Monkey can pop much faster.

  • This can pop 1 Ceramic Bloon faster than it can pop 2 Red Bloons.
  • The Sniper Monkey's sniper rifle gets a Laser dot sight upon getting this upgrade.
  • In the official artwork, the Sniper Monkey had a red scar across its eye.
  • A single Sniper Monkey with this upgrade is capable of beating the "20 Ceramic Bloons On The Wall" Random Mission if it also has Faster Firing, but not without losing lives.
  • Compared with the BTD5 and BMC artworks, the artwork in BTD5 is more angry than the one in BMC and it is peering with its right eye.
  • This tower, along with the Glue Splatter appears at about 0:42 in the BMC trailer.
  • Oddly, in the BTD5 Flash files, Deadly Precision is called "China Shop"(assets.towers.ChinaShop)
    • Deadly Precision with the Night Vision Goggles (x/2) upgrade is called "China Shop Night Vision"(assets.towers.ChinaShopNightVis).
    • The name "China Shop" is likely a reference to the act of breaking porcelain, the name literally referring to a shop full of porcelain, given the associations of incidents of broken porcelain from reckless behavior.
