Elite Sniper is the final upgrade of Path 2 for the Sniper Monkey in BTD6. It allows the Supply Drop ability to drop more cash per drop (increases the money gained from $500-$1000 to $1500-$2500), as well as allowing all Snipers (including itself) to gain a new 'elite' targeting option along with improving global attack speed for all snipers by 33%. It costs $11,050 on Easy, $13,000 on Medium, $14,040 on Hard, and $15,600 on Impoppable.

Description

Elite Sniper will gain an improved Supply Drop ability for itself, which grants extra cash per ability from itself, an approximately 150% attack speed boost for itself, a 33% attack speed buff to all other Snipers on screen, and a new "Elite" target priority.

Cosmetically, Elite Sniper will gain a more complex set of goggles, along with a full-black disguise wig and a high-tech support backpack.

Elite Targeting

This upgrade allows all Snipers (including itself) to gain the Elite targeting setting.

The elite targeting option saves the players from microing too often; when set to elite, Snipers will target Strong Bloons normally and then change targeting to First when bloons are near the exit. Snipers set to Elite will also prioritize Ceramic Bloons over MOAB-Class Bloons.

Tips

  • Generally, a 2-5-0 Elite Sniper is better than a 0-5-2 Elite Sniper, due to the extra damage per shot.

Strategies

Since it increases the firing speed of all Sniper Monkeys on screen, this upgrade is extremely useful if players have a large number of Full Auto Rifles and/or Maim MOABs.
