20 damage per shot, plus bonus damage to Ceramics.
~ BTD6 description

Deadly Precision is the 3rd upgrade for path 1 of the Sniper Monkey in Bloons TD 6. The upgrade returns in BTD6, but it now deals 35 damage to Ceramics and 20 damage to other bloons. If crosspathed with Shrapnel Shot, its shrapnel pieces will pop 4 layers instead of 2 from Large Calibre, and shrapnel pops 3 bloons instead of 2.

It costs $2,550 on Easy, $3,000 on Medium, $3,240 on Hard, and $3,600 on Impoppable.


The Sniper Monkey now wears a black suit and black beret, and his rifle now has two red bands and a laser sight. In the Portrait artwork, the Sniper also now has a scar across his left eye.

Crosspathing with Path 3 upgrades, changes the beret to receive two colored stripes on the beret. Adding Night Vision Goggles will give the tower night vision goggles. Adding Shrapnel Shot will add an explosion symbol to the beret.



Deadly Precision is a useful early mid-game upgrade for eliminating Ceramics and for chipping down health of early MOABs, all with the advantage of unlimited range. Set the Deadly Precision Sniper on Strong to take advantage of its relatively high single-target damage. With the 3-0-2 crosspath, one Deadly Precision can solo a whole MOAB on short maps when supported by a 0-1-2 or 1-0-0 Ice Monkey for the Ceramics.


  • Set it to Strong targeting as it gains higher value from targeting MOABs and Ceramics.
  • Deadly Precision does decent damage against early MOABs and Ceramics and has the additional benefit of global range.
  • One 3-0-2 Sniper is very helpful on #Ouch due to its global range and instakill Ceramic power on pre-Freeplay rounds.
  • The better crosspath for Deadly Precision is 3-0-2 for most occasions, as giving the Sniper with just over double attack speed greatly increases its reliability at tackling the stronger bloons. The shrapnel from 3-2-0 is powerful, dealing 4 damage per shrapnel piece, but it is quite slow and has the potential to backfire at groups of Ceramics.

Version History[]

As competition against Semi-Automatic in mid-game prowess, Deadly Precision aims to specialize in destroying mid-game Ceramics. The addition of Fortified Ceramics meant that Deadly Precision formerly couldn't actually one-shot a Ceramic technically in a normal game, so it has since been given some extra Ceramic damage to compensate this.

Deadly Precision, like many other Sniper Monkey upgrades, have received crosspathing changes aimed to discourage exclusively Path 3 crosspathing. For this upgrade, the damage buffs to Shrapnel Shot had some impact, but not significantly enough to make 3-2-0 worthy of use.

  • Buff Deadly Precision now deals more damage per shot (18 → 20)
  • Buff Deadly Precision now deals +15 damage to Ceramics
  • Buff 3-2-0 Deadly Precision increases Shrapnel Shot fragment damage (1 → 2)
  • Buff 3-2-0 Deadly Precision increases Shrapnel Shot fragment damage (2 → 4)
  • Buff Affected by base Sniper attack speed buff
  • Buff Affected by 1-2-0 Sniper buff


Official artwork[]


  • In BTD6, the description was formerly "Erases 18 layers per shot - enough to wipe out a Ceramic." but was changed in Version 12.0 to update its new bonus Ceramic damage.
    • This description was exactly the same as the BTD5 Mobile and BTDB Mobile descriptions for the same upgrade name.
  • The purchase of Deadly Precision in BTD6 on Medium will save exactly $1700 compared to BTD5, excluding additional crosspathing. This is due to both Large Caliber and Deadly Precision discounts.
  • Out of all Tier 3 Sniper upgrades in BTD6, Deadly Precision is the cheapest. In BTD5, Deadly Precision is the most expensive Tier 3 Sniper upgrade, even in Bloons TD Battles Mobile.
  • Deadly Precision is the only Sniper Monkey in BTD6 to have clothing covering only its upper legs. If looked closely, the monkey wears black compressionwear on the lower part of its body.
