Not to be confused with the Tack Shooter upgrade called Faster Shooting.
All weapons on board shoot faster and projectiles fly faster.
~ BTD6 description

Faster Shooting is an upgrade for the Monkey Buccaneer that appears in Bloons Tower Defense 5, Bloons Tower Defense Battles, Bloons Monkey City, and Bloons Tower Defense 6. In BTD5, this upgrade gives the Monkey Buccaneer a 30% faster fire rate of shooting. In BTD6, this upgrade gives the Monkey Buccaneer a 33% faster fire rate of shooting instead, and affects the Grape Shot and Cannon Ship's attack speed when crosspathed. The BTD6 description, as of 21.0, is incorrect as the increased projectile speed only applies to the Long Range upgrade.

Bloons Tower Defense 5[edit | edit source]

In Bloons TD 5, this upgrade is the 1st upgrade of path 1 for the Monkey Buccaneer, costing $340 on Easy, $400 on Medium, $430 on Hard and $480 on Impoppable. This upgrade gives the Monkey Buccaneer a pirate flag, but the flag will disappear if you purchase any tier 2 upgrade.

BTD6[edit | edit source]

In BTD6, this upgrade returns as the 1st upgrade of Path 1 for the Monkey Buccaneer. It now increases the attack speed of all of the affected Monkey Buccaneer attacks (including Grape Shot and Cannon Ship, as crosspaths) by 33%. It costs $350 on Medium.

Version History (BTD6)[edit | edit source]

  • Change balloon.png Description changed from "All weapons on board shoot 25% faster." to "All weapons on board shoot faster and projectiles fly faster."
    • This description is currently incorrect as the 21.0 update made Long Range gain projectile speed, not Faster Shooting.
