For the BTD6 track, see Downstream (BTD6).
The bloons are heading downstream! Polish up your favorite popping projectile and get out there to stop them. Downstream will require strategic placement of towers to catch the bloons as they split up. Complete each difficulty for an achievement and a wad of Monkey Money.
