For the Sniper Upgrade, see Faster Firing.
Faster attack speed
~ BTD6 description, as of Version 18.0

Faster Firing is the second upgrade on Path 3 (first upgrade on Path 3 prior to Version 18.0) for the Heli Pilot in BTD6. It allows the Heli Pilot to shoot 25% faster.

It costs $295 on Easy, $350 on Medium, $380 on Hard and $420 on Impoppable.


  • As of Version 18.0, the Faster Firing upgrade pretty much costs $550 on Medium, due to how Faster Darts simply provides next to no benefit for the Heli Pilot besides the occasional good sniping.

Version HistoryEdit


Change balloon Faster Firing and Faster Darts upgrades are swapped



  • Faster Firing and Faster Darts are the only pair of tower upgrades in the main Bloons TD series to have swapped places (Faster Firing used to come first).
    • Bloons Adventure Time TD was technically the first, but it isn't part of the main Bloons TD series. Interestingly, this was for Marceline, who attacks most similarly to the Heli Pilot.
