Heroes are a new addition, added in Bloons TD 6. They are a series of very powerful towers that have unique attacks and activated abilities. The player may choose one of these heroes for every game. Only one type of hero and, currently, one hero only may be placed on the track per game; the sole exception is Co-Op Mode, where each player may place their own selected hero on the map, though Hero XP is split among each player.

Using Heroes[edit | edit source]

Unlike normal towers, only one hero can be placed on the track for each game and automatically gaining XP needed to upgrade itself, making them more useful the earlier they are placed. XP gain can be increased or decreased by outside factors, such as Energizer.

However, they can also be upgraded instantly for a sum of in-game cash. The more EXP a hero already has, the lower the amount of cash required to upgrade the hero to the next level. Spending money to level your hero also increases sell price.

Each hero has multiple abilities (all have two with the exception of Ezili and Adora, who both have three) that can be used in your advantage. The first ability is unlocked at level 3, and the second ability is unlocked at level 10; for both Ezili and Adora, they gain their third ability at Level 7. The highest level a hero can be is 20.

Hero Levelling[edit | edit source]

Heroes require a set amount of XP per level (see BTD6 Heroes XP). For most purposes, the amount of money needed for an upgrade is the amount of XP required. Heroes gain XP at the end of the round by the same formula as towers (see BTD6 Towers XP).
