Hurls a giant spiked ball that pops lead and excels at crushing Ceramic Bloons.
~ Bloons TD 6 description

Juggernaut is the fourth upgrade of Path 1 for the Dart Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It deals 2 damage (+2 to Ceramics), as well as popping Frozen and Lead Bloons. Juggernaut balls each have 50 pierce (51 with "Extra Dart Pops" MK). It also increases the tower's range by 15% or 4.5 units and the attack speed from per 1.15s to 1s. Juggernauts additionally have greater projectile speed and a larger projectile size compared to its preceding Spike-o-pult upgrade.

It costs $1,530 on Easy, $1,800 on Medium, $1,945 on Hard, and $2,160 on Impoppable.

Juggernaut is a decent option for dealing high Ceramic damage along straight lines. It also serves as Dart Monkey's cheapest method of lead-popping compared to getting Crossbow Master or Plasma Monkey Fan Club. However, the combined increased pricetag plus the existence of alternate good anti-Ceramic options, Juggernaut struggle to outcompete cost-efficiency at handling Ceramic Bloons.


  • The Juggernaut is best placed at the end of a long, straight path and a target priority of last or close to making best use of its long range and high pierce. However, the Juggernaut's projectiles can also bounce off of objects that stop most other projectiles, potentially bouncing back and popping Bloons multiple times, and even reaching Bloons behind sight-blocking objects if positioned just right.
    • This can prove useful in maps such as Hedge and Balance, which, with strategical placement, would make the projectiles reach multiple paths (or stretches of path).
  • In BTD6, the "Force vs Force" Monkey Knowledge allows the Juggernaut to do 4 damage instead of 2 to MOAB Class Bloons.

Version History[]

Juggernaut originally had a special niche of providing very high popping power along straight lines, perfectly viable for Race Events, but has since been adjusted to become more practical as general grouped damage option. This was because newer players generally found this upgrade to be too niche or even underpowered, according to Ninja Kiwi.

In general, it was buffed overall in general cases but nerfed overall under Race Events scenarios.

Initial release (compared to BTD5)
  • Nerf Juggernaut cost increased ($1500 → $1800)
While we're happy with Dart Monkey being a more niche or early use tower, too many people were finding Juggernaut itself even further niche or lackluster on first impression. While retaining the overpower power potential we've added a beefy impact to each individual target hit, and [...].
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Buff Juggernaut damage increased (1 → 2)
  • Nerf Juggernaut pierce decreased (100 → 50)
