Faster Throwing

This upgrade changes the "V" shape on its head with a single front-to-back red stripe. Kylie Boomerangs and MOAB Presses have a single red stripe across the middles of their hats instead.

Faster Throwing grants +33% attack speed (0.75x attack cooldown) for an attack cooldown of 0.9 seconds.

Targeting Priorities[]

Faster Throwing targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It shoots a curved movement projectile.

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

Like all Boomerang Monkeys, Faster Throwing can access Change Hands secondary targeting priority to switch hands, changing the origin and direction of the boomerangs.

Faster Throwing increases the attack speed of the Boomerang Monkey, making it marginally better at overall DPS and catching faster bloons. A 0-1-0 Boomerang can also be afforded at the start of a standard CHIMPS game, which can be helpful for catching the early Greens.


  • 0-1-0 Boomerang can be bought at the start of standard CHIMPS, making it a helpful starting tower to catch the Greens and still yet solo well.
  • X-1-X is usually bought when going for an X-2-X boomerang thrower, which increases the attack speed quite a bit. This is can help the top path boomerang do more damage, especially when buffed by an alchemist, help bottom path boomerang knock back MOAB-class more often, or be a stepping stone to a X-3+-X boomerang, which can get a lot of DPS.

Version History[]

Balance Changes[]

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.

Bug Fixes and General Changes[]

  • Change Description changed from "Throws 20% faster" to "Throws boomerangs faster."
