Shoots out 12 tacks per shot and increases Ring of Fire damage further.
~ In-game description

Even More Tacks is the second upgrade of Path 3 for the Tack Shooter in Bloons TD 6. It allows the Tack Shooter to shoot 12 tacks instead of 10. Unlike More Tacks, its previous upgrade, Even More Tacks can shoot directly horizontally and directly below the Tack Shooter, as its tack formation is now similar to the number spacings of an analog clock.

There are unique crosspathing benefits that Even More Tacks provides for Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring, granting +2 damage per flame burst compared to not crosspathing with Path 3. Inferno Ring's meteor also gains +300 damage with the Even More Tacks upgrade.

This upgrade costs $85 on Easy, $100 on Medium, $110 on Hard, and $120 on Impoppable.

Description[]

Appearance[]

This upgrade adds two more barrels, for a total of 12.

Mechanics[]

Shoots 12 tacks instead of 10. Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring with this crosspath gains +1 damage for a total of +2 damage, and adds +300 damage (1000 damage) for the Inferno Ring meteor.

Targeting Priorities[]

Faster Shooting shoots a spray of projectiles in an radial spray. Technically, the Tack Shooter is locked on the Close targeting priority. However, for simplicity reasons, Faster Shooting has no targeting priorities.

Strategy[]

Summary[]

Similarly to its previous upgrade, More Tacks, Even More Tacks adds +4 additional projectiles compared to a base Tack Shooter. As such, it is usually used as a cheap way to improve a low-tier Tack Shooter in the early-game. It is a more effective version of its previous upgrade, serving as a cheaper version of the Tack Sprayer upgrade without the extra attack speed.

Tips[]

  • A 0-0-2 Tack Shooter can be purchased immediately before a round starts in up to Impoppable Mode, provided the player has at least $650 to start off with.
  • As a low-cost upgrade compared to the Tack Sprayer, it is a useful lower upgrade for earlier rounds. Upgrading to Tack Sprayer is usually the most likely crosspath for utilizing the increase of projectiles.
  • One of the best uses of Even More Tacks besides further upgrading their subsequent upgrades is in combination with Hot Shots. This will allow the Tack Shooter to deal excellent spaced bloon damage. Similarly occurs when upgrading further to Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring, but instead is far superior as effective damage versus stronger bloons.

Version History[]

Mostly modified crosspathing with Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring, removing the special case granting bonus pierce to each flame ring in exchange for bonus damage.

7.0
  • Buff Affected by base Tack Shooter attack speed buff
20.0
Inferno Ring has felt very outclassed for a long time, and more recently the tack shooter was reworked to give pierce on x2x which made the old 402 pierce crosspath not make as much sense anymore. We wanted to start work on both these issues together by reworking how Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring interact with crosspaths
~ Ninja Kiwi, referring to Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring
  • Nerf Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring no longer gain +20 pierce with Even More Tacks
  • Buff Even More Tacks now grants Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring with +1 damage (3 → 4, 4 → 5 respectively)
  • Change Description changed from "Shoots out 12 tacks per shot." to "Shoots out 12 tacks per shot and increases damage for Ring of Fire."
21.0
The Ring of Fire & Inferno Ring upgrades recently received a crosspath functional rework, as we're happy with the x2x range/pierce combo now this small follow-up is just to bring a bit more impact to the short-range 402 variant.
~ Ninja Kiwi, referring to Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring
  • Buff Even More Tacks now adds more damage bonus to Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring (+1 → +2).
  • Change Description changed from "Shoots out 12 tacks per shot and increases damage for Ring of Fire" to "Shoots out 12 tacks per shot and increases Ring of Fire damage further".
30.0
[...] Inferno Ring itself feels ok but for the difficult saveup not so much, so as a bit of a buff we have added crosspathing to the Meteor attack.
~ Ninja Kiwi, referring to Inferno Ring with Tier 2 crosspaths
  • Buff Even More Tacks now adds +300 damage to Inferno Ring meteor

Trivia[]

  • Even More Tacks adds extra damage to Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring despite neither upgrade involving shooting tacks. This is likely because the increased number of fire barrels increases the intensity of the flame attack, thus can affect more bloons at once.
    • Prior to Version 20.0, both Even More Tacks and More Tacks affected pierce, but this has since changed to a damage bonus for exclusively the Even More Tacks upgrade.
    • But since Version 21.0, the damage buff now applies to both Path 3 upgrades.
  • It is the cheapest Tier 2 upgrade in the game, costing only $100 on Medium.
  • The upgrade icon for Even More Tacks shows three tacks being shot out, but in reality this upgrade only adds two more tacks to the Tack Shooter.
