Increases production rate even more.
~ BTD6 description

Even Faster Production is the 2nd upgrade for Path 2 for the Spike Factory in Bloons TD 6. Production of spike piles increases by about +43% faster (x0.7 attack cooldown) than its preceding upgrade, Faster Production, allowing it to produce 1.79x the speed of a normal Spike Factory. Spike piles are now dispensed every 0.98s by default.

This upgrade costs $680 on Easy, $800 on Medium, $865 on Hard, and $960 on Impoppable.

Description[]

Overview[]

Spikemiddle (2)

Even Faster Production with several pre-produced spikes

Upon upgrading to Even Faster Production or crosspathing with Even Faster Production (except for Tier 5 upgrades), the Spike Factory's two storage depots on both sides will become taller. All pre-Tier 3 upgrades except the 2-2-0 crosspath have a black body.

Even Faster Production grants a 0.7x attack cooldown (roughly +43% attack speed) on top of Faster Production, for an overall attack cooldown multiplier of 0.56x compared to a 0-0-0 Spike Factory, or roughly +79% attack speed. Without Super Mines or Perma-Spike, its actual attack cooldown, as a result, is 0.98s.

Targeting Priorities[]

Even Faster Production defaults on Normal targeting priority, which dispenses the spikes onto nearby bloon track in a semi-sporadical behavior. If given Smart Spikes, it will also receive Close, Far, and Smart.

  • Normal: Targets spike piles in a somewhat sporadical way, spreading spikes as evenly as possible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest region(s) of track within range.
  • Far: Targets the furthest region(s) of track within range.
  • Smart: Prioritizes the track with the Bloon the farthest through it, then targets the spot on that track closest to the exit.

Strategy[]

Summary[]

Even Faster Production further improves attack speed of the Spike Factory. It is more expensive compared to its previous upgrade Faster Production and provides a slightly greater attack speed bonus, but this upgrade is worth purchasing for a high-level Spike Factory if even greater production rate is desired. Most crosspaths of higher-tier Spike Factories tend to prefer Even Faster Production for the greater rate of stockpiling and the better synergy with external buffs.

Tips[]

  • It is a great line of defense against escaping bloons, especially when paired with Bigger Stacks.
  • If crosspathed with Path 1, players should get Bigger Stacks before this upgrade, as Even Faster Production is more expensive and has less of an effect at total spikes per second.
  • Most Spike Factories prefer this upgrade for the faster production rate, and thereby safekeeping the areas faster, which is more helpful if bloons regularly take away stockpiles. Spiked Balls and Spiked Mines usually appreciate from this crosspath better, although Smart Spikes has unique niche benefits.
  • 1-2-0 Spactory is decent for purely piling up spikes in the short-term.

Version History[]

Balance Changes[]

Crosspathing with Path 2 has been softened, but otherwise not much changes aside from an overall projectile lifespan nerf without getting the Long Reach upgrade.

Trivia[]

  • Even Faster Production upgrade icon features three gears. The difference from the BTD5 version of the upgrade icon is that the positioning of the gears are arrange more like Mickey Mouse's ears but with one gear smaller than the other. Additionally, the top gears are bronze, and the main gear is steel.
  • Even Faster Production's cost is the same the old BTD6 Spike Factory's pre-23.0 base cost, at $800.
