Reloads faster.
~ BTD6 Description

Faster Reload is the first upgrade of Path 2 for the Bomb Shooter in Bloons TD 6. It allows Bomb Shooter to shoot 33% faster (from every 1.5s to every 1.125s).

It costs $210 on Easy, $250 on Medium, $270 on Hard, and $300 on Impoppable.



This is a basic attack speed bonus for the Bomb Shooter, which helps it apply explosions at a faster rate, although Bigger Bombs may be the better option for countering large groups of slower bloons.


  • Although mostly used as a stepping stone for the next upgrade, Missile Launcher, It might be used as a 2-1-0, for the extra damage.

Version History[]

  • Although Faster Reload was claimed by NK to be buffed in attack speed bonus from +20% to +25%, it was actually buffed from +25% to +33%, the 20% and 25% values are actually the decrease in attack cooldown.
