Attacks faster and freezes for longer.
~ In-game description

Enhanced Freeze is the first upgrade of Path 2 for the Ice Monkey in Bloons TD 6. An Ice Monkey with the Enhanced Freeze upgrade receives an attack speed bonus of +33% (every 2.4s to 1.8s by default), and increases freeze duration from 1.5s to 2.2s.

It costs $190 on Easy, $225 on Medium, $245 on Hard, and $270 on Impoppable.



An Ice Monkey with Enhanced Freeze gains a pair of red earmuffs. With Cold Snap and above, it also wears a light black hat overlapping the earmuffs.

Targeting Priorities[]

Enhanced Freeze produces freezing blasts in a zone-like style. Technically, the Ice Monkey is locked on the Close targeting priority. However, for simplicity reasons, this monkey has no targeting priorities.



Enhanced Freeze improves the effectiveness of the Ice Monkey, patching not only its slow attack speed but improving its freeze duration. Combining the two benefits makes adding the Re-Freeze upgrade very useful for stalling.


  • 0-1-2 Ice Monkeys (Enhanced Freeze + Refreeze) are very helpful for stalling bloons in place for an almost permanent stall. Especially for Super Ceramics.
  • This is the most useful crosspath option for the Ice Monkey because of the added attack speed bonus that increases its overall reliability.

  • Unlike in previous games, instead of increasing the Ice Monkey's range, this version of Enhanced Freeze adds attack speed.
    • Enhanced Freeze exists in BTD4, however, it is called Improved Ice Tower and works similarly to its BTD5 counterpart.
  • This version of Enhanced Freeze does not add extra range; increasing radial size of Ice Monkey can only be readily obtained via the Larger Radius upgrade (besides Snowstorm and Absolute Zero, as well as Cryo Cannon if conversion into traditional projectile-firing towers counts).
