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.


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

Version History[]

Did not change since it was first released, but it did receive some strange description changes.

Initial release (compared to BTD5)
  • Buff Faster Shooting costs less ($400 → $350)
  • Change Description changed from "All weapons on board shoot 25% faster." to "All weapons on board shoot faster and projectiles fly faster."
    • This description was currently incorrect as the 21.0 update made Long Range gain projectile speed, not Faster Shooting.
  • Change Description now has removed "[...] and projectiles fly faster".
