The collect radius of Bananas is larger and uncollected bananas auto-collect for half value. Monkey Banks will glow when full and ready to collect.
~ In-game description

EZ Collect is the first upgrade on path 3 for the Banana Farm in Bloons TD 6. It allows easier collecting of bananas and banana crates by expanding their hitbox. In addition, expired bananas will autocollect for 50%.

When upgraded as a crosspath to Upper Path 2, this upgrade instead highlights Monkey Banks when they are full, including IMF Loans and Monkey-Nomics. The former can be helpful to quickly collect bananas if the player needs money fast or if they are in a difficult spot, but the collecting of bananas is already simple to achieve. The latter can be helpful for providing efficient withdrawals through the use of visual cues but comes with the cost of not being able to crosspath the first two tiers of the first path for the Banana Farm.

It costs $210 on Easy, $250 on Medium, $270 on Hard, and $300 on Impoppable.

Appearance[]

Two brown crates are placed on each side of the Banana Farm. This also includes crosspaths with EZ Collect.

Summary[]

As the name suggests, EZ Collect is all about easy collection of income. Allowing bananas to be collected from a further range decreases the amount of manual movement required to collect income. In addition, it provides a cushion of convenience to banana farming, compensating unpicked bananas for a smaller income gain. For Monkey Banks, this allows Banks to visually indicate when they are full, for greater visual convenience, although the leading upgrade after EZ Collect, Banana Salvage, is far more desirable for income convenience purposes.

Although worth keeping in mind to reduce micromanagement, the one major downside of EZ Collect is that it locks out one of the other paths, whether it be the bonus income of Path 1 or the mixed bag of increased banana lifespan and further income generation of Path 2. As such, besides going for Marketplace, EZ Collect in itself remains hardly useful of as a crosspath option.

The autocollect salvage portion is suitable for players who AFK, but it is still more efficient to be picking up the bananas anyway. The greatest downside for the EZ Collect upgrade is that most of the time the superior upgrades for the Banana Farm are Path 1 for the increased income gain and Path 2 for longer banana lifespan and even more income gain, leaving this upgrade usually untouched unless saving for its higher upgrades. Of course, there is also Banana Salvage for secondary perks too, which for a low-cost extra can assist in further autocollection salvages and a better Farm sell price.

Tips[]

  • EZ Collect is helpful for players who use touchscreen devices, especially smartphones, since often the radius for collecting bananas is too small compared to the size of one's fingers, often leading to the tiring inaccuracy of moving one's finger around. With EZ Collect, one can simply hold their finger at the target Banana Farm(s) to easily collect all of the bananas easily.
  • This upgrade is the prerequisite for Banana Salvage, and as such it is worth upgrading further in order to utilize even more extra utility benefits. This is because the EZ Collect upgrade is overall not very useful on its own, except if it is to allow Monkey Farmers to pick up the Banana Farm's bananas from slightly further than the Farmer's own range.

Version History[]

Minor quality-of-life changes. EZ Collect now also uses the pre-28.0 Banana Salvage autocollection salvage benefit as well. Version 28.0 added this to give Path 3 crosspath some competition on expensive upgrades.

  • Buff [Undocumented] Monkey Bank with EZ Collect (or Banana Salvage) will now glow upon detecting full once it adds another pocket of cash, rather than just after the round it becomes full.
28.0
Banana Farm's xx2 upgrade is the inferior crosspath, so we've amped up the utility with the lazy aspect so that if it's going to be inferior for production, it's at least going to be extra lazy & less far behind. [...]
