Ability now increases attack speed and pops by 100% for all Monkeys for 20 seconds.
~ BTD6

Homeland Defense is the final upgrade of Path 2 for the Monkey Village in BTD6. It allows the ability to increase attack speed and pops of ALL towers on screen by +100% for 20 seconds, as opposed to the local +50% attack speed and pierce bonus from the Call To Arms ability. The cooldown stays the same at 60 seconds. It costs $34,000 on Easy, $40,000 on Medium, $43,200 on Hard, and $48,000 on Impoppable.



Homeland Defense is quite a formidable support tower due to it's solid 100% buff to attack speed and pierce. Its global effect, means that it works well even with multiple towers requiring buffs.

The inconvenience of using Homeland Defense comes from it being a huge part of your budget but not being active 1/3 of the time. Compared to Permanent Brew, Homeland Defense lacks in uptime and its more damage-oriented buff, but Permanent Brew's benefits outweigh Homeland Defense's benefits for most towers. 


  • Homeland Defense deserves a mention for its attack speed buff, which means that it is an excellent Freeplay tower and one of the few places where it shines. 
  • Homeland Defense is sometimes used in 2MPC to buff the tower without stealing pops. 
  • Homeland Defense has a unique synergy with Sentry Paragon, because it both doubles their spawn rate and attack speed. 
    • This strategy remains largely unexplored due to both towers generally being difficult to use.

Change balloon Description updated to reflect new ability duration.



  • This does NOT stack with Call To Arms. Instead, it overlaps any active Call to Arms, thereby cancelling them out until Homeland Defense ability expires or Homeland Defense is sold.
  • Homeland Defense's ability cannot be reactivated until it expires, unlike Call to Arms, where multiple can be activated at once.
  • Between Version 9.0 and 18.0, the old description was "Ability affects ALL Monkeys and for 20 seconds." but was since changed to clarify the boosted ability bonuses.
