Shoots glue more than 3x as fast!
~ BTD5 Description

Glue Hose is the 3rd upgrade of Path 2 for the Glue Gunner. This upgrade makes the tower shoot glue more than 3x as fast and glue twice as much bloons with an update, allowing many more bloons to be glued, and, if paired with Corrosive Glue, popped. This tower, along with other glue towers, should generally be placed at the beginning of the map for the best effects. It is nearly useless late in the game in BTD5, when most bloons are M.O.A.B. Class Bloons.

This upgrade returns in BTD6 as the third upgrade of Path 2, but strictly triples attack speed with no impact on pierce. As with all Glue Gunners, it can now target MOAB-class bloons if Corrosive Glue is bought as well. However, it can also prevent other Glue Gunners from targeting MOAB-class bloons if coated with said glue, though stronger solvent glues (Bloon Dissolver, Bloon Liquefier, and The Bloon Solver) can easily override any Glue Hose glue. It costs $3250 on Medium.

Update History (Bloons TD Battles Mobile)Edit


Buff Glue Hose price decreased ($3250 → $2200).


  • This upgrade seems to halfen the glue duration gained from the Stickier Glue perk.



  • When stacked with the Tier 2/4 Glue Specialty Building, Glue Hose will slow to 30/15% speed respectively.
  • Although it's called Glue Hose, it shoots small balls of glue quickly rather than full stream like a hose. This might be because if it did it would be really overpowered.


  • This upgrade is one of few upgrades that attacks exactly 3x faster than their predecessors, the others being Overdrive and Semi-Automatic.
    • Artillery Battery used to attack exactly 3x faster than Heavy Shells, but this is no longer the case due to a buff to its attack speed (4x instead of 3x).
