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, projectile speed, and pierce of the Buccaneer, allowing its base attack to snipe out bloons easier along either dart cannon and improve its overall popping power. Long Range works well with Grape Shot in the early-game to rectify the lower pierce of grapes. The upgrade's faster projectile speed is also effective for Aircraft Carrier main attacks to catch bloons better.
Added a bonus projectile speed and pierce with this upgrade to make crosspathing with Path 3 a bit more useful outside of getting Crow's Nest for camo detection.
Long Range now adds +25% projectile speed for all attacks.
Description changed from "Much Longer range." to "Much longer range and projectiles fly faster."
||Bottom crosspath feels behind compared to others here, so in addition to the new Camo Prioritization filter Longer Range on this path will now also grant bonus pierce. [...]
||~ Ninja Kiwi, referring to Path 3 Buccaneer
