Larger freeze area.
~ In-game description

Larger Radius is the first upgrade of Path 3 of Ice Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It increases the Ice Monkey's range by +7 (from 20 to 27), for roughly 35% compared to an unupgraded Ice Monkey.

This upgrade costs $150 on Easy, $175 on Medium, $190 on Hard, and $210 on Impoppable.

Description[]

Appearance[]

This upgrade gives the Ice Monkey light grey gloves. When crosspathed with Arctic Wind, its gloves become red, while Snowstorm changes them to white.

Targeting Priorities[]

Larger Radius produces freezing blasts in a zone-like style. Technically, the Ice Monkey is locked on the Close targeting priority. However, for simplicity reasons, this monkey has no targeting priorities.

Costs[]

Updated as of Version 31.0. Listed prices exclude buffs, sacrifices, and Monkey Knowledge.

Strategy[]

Summary[]

While in most cases Enhanced Freeze will freeze more bloons, Larger Radius still may be useful in rare cases when there needs a bit more of a range coverage. Larger Radius also leads into a powerful upgrade, Re-Freeze, that combos well with Enhanced Freeze for a permanent stall. Larger Radius also increases range for an Arctic Wind platform.

Tips[]

  • Larger Radius can be used to increase range for an Arctic Wind platform. In that case, Re-Freeze might not be necessary unless needing to stall Super Ceramics.
  • On Race Events, this upgrade can be used to reach a bit more coverage for a better early utilization of the Ice Monkey's pierce.

Version History[]

The Larger Radius upgrade has long been untouched but it later received a nerf in Version 28.0, mainly to make 0-1-2 Ice more expensive, as well as to make the Larger Radius upgrade a little harder to get on Race Events. This one nerf has also made it impossible to start off with 0-0-1 Ice on a standard game of CHIMPS.

28.0
[...] Additionally some smaller price nerfs have been made along the lower tiers of bottom path as each of these upgrades has been standing out a little much.

Trivia[]

  • The effect of this upgrade is almost identical to a Monkey Knowledge upgrade called Icy Chill.
    • Together, they can give the Ice Monkey a lot more range.
