All weapons on board shoot faster.
~ In-game description

Faster Shooting is the 1st upgrade on Path 1 for the Monkey Buccaneer in Bloons TD 6. It increases attack speed of all its attacks by +33%. With this upgrade, it shoots darts every 0.75s instead of every 1.0s.

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


Faster Shooting gives the Buccaneer a pirate flag. A golden tooth can be seen in the Buccaneer's grin.



Faster Shooting improves attack speed of the Buccaneer by a fair amount. This is mostly used in combination with Grape Shot and its later upgrades to increase the efficiency of those alternate attacks.


  • Normally, it should only be bought in conjunction with Path 2 upgrades.
  • For Merchantman and above, this upgrade is normally a waste because it doesn't do as much overall damage compared to having Grape Shot.

Version History[]
