Targeting Priorities[]

Long Range Darts targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It shoots straight movement projectiles.

  • 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.

Adding Enhanced Eyesight adds Camo Prioritization, allowing all its attacks to prioritize Camo Bloons over other types when this secondary targeting option is active.

More range can be useful in a few select scenarios where needing to shoot further is necessary. Many of these involve needing to make shots sooner, or to just reach slightly further to hit a particular section of track. However, most occasions tend to call for an additional tower, or opting for the speed or pierce upgrades for consistent shots.


  • Simply buy this upgrade if more range is necessary. This may help the Dart Monkey throw along straight lines more effectively or to simply reach bloons from further.
  • Long Range Darts has as much range as the base towers for Bomb Shooter, Wizard Monkey, Ninja Monkey, or Engineer Monkey.

Version History[]

Balance Changes[]

Gains a projectile lifespan increase in an update to incentivize crosspathing interactions with the Path 3 crosspath.

To add a little more synergetic crosspath use for the Juggernaut 402 crosspath, xx2 will now also grant bonus projectile lifespan, this applies to any use of that crosspath though we feel it will in particular pair nicely with the ricocheting projectiles. [...]

  • BUFF Long Range Darts also increases projectile lifespan by +15%
