~ BTD6 Description

Long Range is the first upgrade of Path 3 for the Monkey Buccaneer in BTD6. It increases range of the Buccaneer from 60 to 71, as well as increases projectile speed of all attacks by +25%.

It costs $155 on Easy, $180 on Medium, $195 on Hard, and $210 for Impoppable.


The cannons are now tipped with golden rims. In the artwork, the Buccaneer is sticking its tongue out.



Long Range improves the range and projectile speed of the Buccaneer, allowing its base attack to snipe out bloons easier along either dart cannon. It is also effective for Aircraft Carrier main attacks because of the increased projectile speed.


  • The Monkey Buccaneer already possesses a generous range, so only use this upgrade in itself if there is a specific region of the track that may need more coverage, or if dart sniping is necessary. Otherwise, you should use this upgrade to lock in towards the Crow's Nest upgrade.
  • Just as how dart sniping is useful with this upgrade, this upgrade pairs reasonably well with Grape Shot for the early-game.

Version History[]

Added a bonus projectile speed with this upgrade to make crosspathing with Path 3 a bit more useful outside of getting Crow's Nest for camo detection.

Buff Long Range now adds +25% projectile speed for all attacks.

Change Description changed from "Much Longer range." to "Much longer range and projectiles fly faster."



  • There was a bug where the Faster Shooting upgrade description mentions the Version 21.0 projectile speed buff of Long Range, rather than doing so for the Long Range's upgrade description. This was fixed in Version 23.0 (?).
