A group of boomerang throwers with the 3-1-0 upgrades (Glave Ricochet and Faster Throwing) can be used for crowd control and easly dominate most non-M.O.A.B. class bloons with the help of a 0-2-0 monkey village.

A boomerang thrower with the 0-1-4 upgrades (Faster Throwing and M.O.A.B. Press) can be used to delay a MOAB, BFB, or ZOMG bloon for a short time.


  • 0-1-0 can be bought on CHIMPS Mode.

Version History[]

Buffed to give better crosspathing variety.

  • Buff Reload time decreased (0.80x → 0.75x).
    • The patch notes erroneously stated it as a 20% -> 25% attack speed bonus.
  • Buff Base Faster Throwing attacks faster (1.065s --> 0.90s), due to base Boomerang Monkey attack speed buffs.


Official artwork[]


  • Prior to the Version 7.0 buff, the description was "Throws 20% faster" but was changed because it was inaccurate and misleading, and also because this upgrade received a small buff to the attack speed bonus.
