|“||Attacks faster and freezes for longer.||”|
|~ In-game Description|
Enhanced Freeze is the first upgrade of Path 2 for the Ice Monkey in BTD6. Unlike in previous games, instead of increasing the Ice Monkey's range, this upgrade increases the attack speed of the Ice Monkey by +33% (from per 2.4 seconds to per 1.8 seconds). The freeze duration is also increased from 1.5s to 2.2s, similar to in previous games. Increasing radial size of Ice Monkey can only be obtained via the Larger Radius upgrade (besides Snowstorm and Absolute Zero).
It costs $190 on Easy, $225 on Medium, $245 on Hard and $270 on Impoppable.
In BTD6, the upgrade visual adds a pair of red earmuffs.
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.
