Two guns for twice the fun.
~ BTD6 description

Double Gun is the 3rd upgrade of Path 3 for the Engineer Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It allows the Engineer to attack with two nailguns instead of one, allowing the Engineer to attack twice as fast alternating with each of its guns. Double Gun inherits the properties of the preceding Pin upgrade. It only affects the Engineer's nailgun and not its sentries.

It costs $425 on Easy, $500 on Medium, $540 on Hard, and $600 on Impoppable.



Double Gun sports, well, double guns, each with red lining the end of the barrel, as well as a pair of red earmuffs and golden goggles.

Crosspathing with Path 1 paints the nail guns green, adds a wrench to its back, and then paints said wrench's handle red.

Crosspathing with Path 2 gives it an orange cap with a yellow pencil before swapping it out for a red cap with a white pencil with blue lead and a pink eraser.


Double Gun has all the functionality of Pin with double nail gun attack speed, for an attack cooldown of 0.35 seconds.

Targeting Priorities[]




Double Gun is an excellent solo for the early-game due its high pierce, decent attack speed, and stalling power via the Pin effect. Again, the Double Gun Engineer does the best along straightaways to maximize its pierce.


  • Generally speaking, a 2-0-3 Double Gun is better than a 0-2-3 Double Gun. The sentries have 3 pierce per shot due to the benefits of Oversize Nails crosspath with sentries, and they will deal overall more damage all-round compared to the benefits of longer range and the extra MOAB damage and Fortified damage from the Path 2 upgrades. However, 0-2-3 Double Gun is far cheaper, and works better along straight lines.
  • This upgrade is a helpful early-game tower for general stalling of bloons for a rather low price.
  • On CHIMPS, this upgrade can be useful on Geared for the early-game.

Version History[]

So far, there are no buffs for Double Gun itself, as all buffs for this upgrade are just inherited buffs from the previous upgrades and do not make a significant enough difference to be worthy of adding to this Version History log.


Official artwork[]


  • This upgrade was memed by the community, being featured in "Don't mess with my son ever again!" memes due to its design being similar to the Robo-Monkey.
    • Pat Fusty and the Dart Monkey have also been included in such memes due to Pat resembling an oversized version of a Dart Monkey.
    • Although the design and attributes are similar, the Double Gun Engineer has a slower fire rate than Robo-Monkey, but is still effective at popping Bloons.
  • 2 0-1-3 Engineers can beat up to 25 Rainbow Bloons, or 6 Ceramic Bloons on Logs. (Tested in Hard Sandbox with 5 spacing; they can beat 26-28 with some life loss and maybe 26 NLL with some RNG) 3 are required to beat a MOAB.
  • The concept of the Double Gun upgrade is likely a reference to the Engineer from Team Fortress 2, specifically from the Meet the Engineer trailer where Engineer tells the viewers that he solves practical problems regarding self-protection with "more gun": "The answer? Use a gun. And if that don't work, use more gun."
