Shoots even faster!
~ BTD6 description

Even Faster Firing is the second upgrade of Path 3 for the Sniper Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It allows the Sniper to shoot even faster than with Fast Firing, shooting ~42% faster than Fast Firing, which is overall ~2.04x faster than a normal Sniper.

It costs $340 on Easy, $400 on Medium, $430 on Hard, $480 on Impoppable.



The Sniper Monkey gains a black bandolier, and the rifle's barrel and stock gain orange stripes. The grey camo beret is changed to an orange camo beret.


Attacks +42%, equivalent to 0.8874 per shot. The total attack speed increase is +104%, equivalent to 0.49x attack cooldown compared to having no Path 3 upgrades. For all Snipers with this crosspath except Elite Sniper, their attack cooldown decreases from 1.11s to 0.779s. Elite Sniper's attack cooldown decreases from 0.4452s to 0.312s.

Targeting Priorities[]

Even Faster Firing targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It shoots a snipe attack.

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

Can receive Camo Prioritization with Night Vision Goggles, allowing it to prioritize Camo Bloons over other types.



As a pure attack speed upgrade, it is the general go-to upgrade crosspath for Path 1 upgrades Deadly Precision and above, as it benefits the Sniper with far superior overall Ceramic popping power (for Deadly Precision) and blimp-stalling (for Maim MOAB) for a rather low price.

Depending on what is desired for the Elite Sniper, this path could be useful for bloon cleanup. The extra attack speed helps generate more shrapnel.

The Even Faster Firing upgrade is still useful for lower upgrades too. When given to a Sniper with Full Metal Jacket, a 1-0-2 Sniper is highly useful for stripping up early bloons between Black Bloons and Rainbow Bloons to make them easier to pop by other towers. When given to a Sniper with Shrapnel Shot, a 0-2-2 Sniper becomes a decent long-ranged spaced bloon cleanup tower.


  • This upgrade is useful for purely increasing attack speed of higher-level Snipers, and it is a good upgrade for leading towards the Semi-Automatic upgrade.
  • With Even Faster Firing, this upgrade allows a Maim MOAB with such upgrade to almost completely permastall ZOMGs and DDTs, with only a very brief 0.03s gap between. Adding Jungle Drums will bridge that gap, although the gaps between stalls are very insignificant.

Version History[]

Adjustments to Path 3 crosspathing in Version 20.0 has lead to reduction of the attack speed bonuses from the first two upgrades. Technically speaking, the Even Faster Firing upgrade attack speed was buffed, but practically speaking the Even Faster Firing upgrade attack speed remained unchanged.

  • Change Even Faster Firing attacks faster (0.78s → 0.779s), but bonus attack speed decreased from +54% to +42% for both Path 3 crosspaths.
