This is a great upgrade for improving the overall power of the Tack Shooter. It comes at a relatively low price, so it is good to get this upgrade, especially to improve Faster Shooting. It contains a very significant boost to a Tack Shooter's attack speed, and it is usually the dominant crosspath choice for most Tack Shooter upgrades because of this.


  • This is generally a good crosspath for both tier 5 Tack Shooters, but it is most arguably a good crosspath for The Tack Zone. Since it already has good range, Even Faster Shooting will allow it to shred bloons even faster.
    • With nerfs to The Tack Zone's range in Version 23.0, this upgrade is still good, however Path 2 now provides improved range and pierce.
  • Buying this upgrade as a step towards getting Hot Shots is a viable option against lead bloons.

Version History[]

Tiny buff due to the base Tack Shooter attack speed buff.

  • Buff Attack speed increased (0.72s → 0.63s), as a result of the base Tack Shooter attack speed buff


Official artwork[]


  • The emblem of an Even Faster Shooting Tack Shooter in BTD6 uses four tacks instead of three. In BTD5, the Tack Shooter's top emblem only features more tacks when given its respective Even Faster Shooting upgrade.
