|~ BTD6 Description|
Frag Bombs is the second upgrade of Path 3 for the Bomb Shooter in Bloons TD 6. It allows all bomb explosions to pop Black Bloons and create fragments that are spread out from the center of the explosion. Upon explosion, the bomb will emit 8 sharp frags that each deal 1 damage with 1 pierce. In addition, the Bomb Shooter gains +2 range, for roughly 4.1% more range.
The overall popping power of the fragments improves by adding Really Big Bombs, Bloon Impact, or Bloon Crush, but doesn't improve by any other upgrades in any other way shape or form. Note that a fragment cannot damage the same bloon that the parent bomb collided with, regardless of conditions.
Frag Bombs adds black-popping power in addition to a spray of fragments. Its main power is the black-popping power, which reduces dependency on other towers and Striker Jones buffs. Frags can also be added with buffs to make them stronger and deal a bit of chip damage.
- It's got extra popping power, but fragments are not reliable popping power when compared to the explosive aspects of Bomb Shooters, even at higher upgrades.
- When used as crosspath to MOAB Mauler it allows to deal some extra damage against MOABs, unlike the Heavy Bombs which is pierce-oriented.
- Usually, this upgrade serves as the stepping stone to Cluster Bombs.
