Faster Firing increases the fire rate of the Tack Shooter by 33%, increasing its damage output considerably. With an increased fire rate and a naturally high projectile count, Faster Firing and subsequent upgrades in this path provide good MOAB-class Bloon damage for their price. In conjunction with More Tacks and Even More Tacks, the faster fire rate can deal plenty of damage to single MOAB-class targets in the early game.


  • On CHIMPS, a 1-0-1 Tack Shooter is affordable at the start of the game.
  • Faster Firing and Even Faster Firing is the preferred crosspath for The Tack Zone, allowing it to attack 66% faster and significantly bolsters its MOAB-class damage output as a result.

Version History[]
