Glue Storm ability pelts the whole screen over 15 seconds with glue. Glued Bloons take extra damage while glued.
~ BTD6 Description


Glue Storm is the final upgrade for Path 2 for the Glue Gunner in BTD6. It greatly extends the duration (over 15 seconds) of the Glue Strike ability. Cooldown for ability is 30 seconds, alongside a 5 second initial cooldown prior to initial use upon purchase.

As of Version 8.0, all Bloons affected by the Glue Storm's ability glue now take in +1 damage, similar to Embrittlement but can affect MOAB-class Bloons, though the ability will only glue MOAB-class bloons with the Corrosive Glue crosspath as of Version 10.0. Glue Storm will now vastly increase the overall power of high-attack high-projectile towers such as Comanche Commander or Sun Avatar towards Bloons that become vulnerable by Glue Storm ability.

Appearance

The Glue Storm tower adds a third glue tank to the Glue Gunner and makes the suit orange instead of yellow. There are also four smaller hoses on the glue tanks.

Ability

When used, the hoses will extend outwards and flail around to give the impression that they are spraying glue everywhere, while the screen is bombarded with glue for 15 straight seconds. Waves of glue will emerge from the tower. Bloons will be glued every few seconds during the ability, not constantly.

In Version 8.0, a new feature allows the ability to make all affected Bloons vulnerable to +1 damage. This will only apply to glue applied by the ability and not by the main attack or any other glues. Once replaced by other glues, the special property will be negated. Link.
