Targeting Priorities[]

Long Life Bananas produces bananas that are tossed erratically around its range. Like most Banana Farm upgrades, Long Life Bananas lacks any real targeting priority.

Long Life Bananas increases lifespan of the bananas, allowing them to last longer before disappearing. It does nothing in terms of improving overall income, but rather this upgrade is purely for player convenience. By having this upgrade, managing between banana collection and defense micromanagement becomes more convenient; the player can focus on other defenses for a bit longer before going back to collect the bananas.


  • This upgrade is often considered to be one of the least effective upgrades to buy due to the Monkey Farmer automatically collecting the bananas in under a second, thus rendering this upgrade as a stepping stone to Valuable Bananas or Monkey Bank. Just like on BTD5 and Battles Flash, the cursor should be able to collect bananas fast enough.
    • However, if Monkey Farmers are unavailable, it might be fine to get this upgrade to have more time to pick up bananas, especially if the player has tens of Banana Plantation farms.
  • Do not use this with Marketplace, as it does nothing to enhance the Marketplace in any way, wasting money, unless going for Valuable Bananas.

Version History[]

Long Life Bananas is fairly cheaper than it did in BTD5 and provides more overall banana lifespan compared to both the Flash and Mobile versions of BTD5. No changes in BTD6 since initial release, however.

1.0 (compared to BTD5)
  • Buff Long Life Bananas costs less ($500 → $300).
  • Buff Long Life Bananas banana lifespan increased (20s/25s → 30s).
