Potions splash over more Bloons in a larger area.
~ In-game description

Larger Potions is the first upgrade on the top path for the Alchemist in Bloons TD 6. It improves the splash radius and pierce of all attacks. It increases the splash radius of the potions by +7 (from 14 units to 21 units) and pierce by +6 (from 15 to 20). Larger Potions also affects the splash radius for most other potion attacks such as Unstable Concoction or Rubber to Gold, but not for Acid Pools. If crosspathed with Transforming Tonic, it increases laser pierce by +3, from 6 to 9. Unstable Concoction's concoction potions gain +1 pierce, while Rubber to Gold's special goldifying potions gain +5 pierce.

This upgrade costs $210 on Easy, $250 on Medium, $270 on Hard, and $300 on Impoppable.




Larger Potions

An Alchemist with Larger Potions gains a large backpack. All Alchemists up to Tier 4 with this crosspath also each gain a large backpack. Alchemists with Larger Potions gain extra pierce and extra splash radius. The increased pierce affects all attacks except Acid Pool, and the increased splash radius affects all potion-specific attacks.

Targeting Priorities[]

Larger Potions targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It lobs potions at bloons based on current targeting.

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

Larger Potions adds both a greater splash radius and slightly more pierce for each potion. Greater splash area is helpful for a more reliable attack at hitting more bloons per shot, including for crosspathing benefits. The extra pierce provided by Larger Potions is also helpful for the same reasons.


  • Note that the damage of the potion remains the same, simply the Alchemist can hit more bloons, with a bigger area and a higher pierce. Stronger Acid is required to deal more damage.
  • This upgrade is important for Rubber to Gold, as it allows the goldify attacks to hit more bloons.
