Throws boomerangs faster.
~ BTD6 description

Faster Throwing is the first upgrade in Path 2 for the Boomerang Monkey in BTD6. It increases the Boomerang Thrower's attack speed by 33.33%~ (25% reduction in reload time). This allows it to attack every 0.9s by default.

It costs $150 on Easy, $175 on Medium, $190 on Hard, and $210 on Impoppable.


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.

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.
