Activated ability: unlocks locked Dartling Gunners and boost their swivel speed for a short time.

Emergency Unlock Icon

Emergency Unlock is an upgrade in the Military Monkey Knowledge Tree that was first introduced on Version 22.0. When at least one Dartling Gunner's targeting is set to Locked, it gives Dartling Gunners a new ability that makes Dartling Gunners that are locked become unlocked instantly, as well as boosting their swivel speed by +33% for a short time, for ~5.0s. Cooldown is approximately 10 seconds, although this cooldown hasn't been formally tested as of present. It does not have a prerequisite Monkey Knowledge requirement.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Don't be tempted to always try to use this MK. Realistically, this MK should only be used to unlock multiple Dartling Gunners locked in place, or if there is at least one Dartling Gunner that needs to catch bloons moving straight past it/them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is one of the few Monkey Knowledge upgrades that give a tower a new ability, the others being Vine Rupture and Door Gunner.
  • The ability is (currently) the only ability that is available on a base, upgradable, tower, as well as the only whose availability is based on the tower's targeting.
  • Emergency Unlock is the first new MK Point to have no MK prerequisites.
  • Pressing the Emergency Unlock button (i.e. activating the Emergency Unlock ability) makes a low-pitched button noise, followed by a siren noise along with the sound of fast-moving equipment.
