|“||Shoots 12 darts at a time.||”|
|~ BTD6 description|
Lots More Darts is the second upgrade for the Monkey Ace in Bloons TD 6. It allows the Monkey Ace to fire off 12 darts for each volley, four more than without the upgrade. It costs $550 on Easy, $650 on Medium, $700 on Hard, and $780 on Impoppable.
In tandem with the prior Path 1 upgrade Rapid Fire, having Lots More Darts for general effectivity is a must for the Monkey Ace, as it increases its greatest strengths while skirting some of its greater weaknesses. As a consequence of firing 12 darts, the angle between darts decreases from 45 degrees to only 30. This has the benefit of being able to hit bloons more consistently, even at further distances. It also allows for increased potential damage for close range bursts, as the chance for multiple darts to hit the same target would invariably increase. This is more noticeable for MOAB-Class or Ceramics, where an attack that lands all the darts within 90 degrees gains an extra hit for increased effectivity.
Having more darts also benefits the other two Paths by a large margin. Having increased fire rate and more darts helps Path 2 stave off its overall pitiful upgrades for increasing tower performance, as well as allow the Path 1 upgrades to benefit from Spy Plane's Camo detection. Path 3 has Sharper Darts, becoming a greater threat with increased pierce, fire rate and darts simultaneously. With Neva-Miss Targeting, having 33% more darts and faster firing speed is outright imparative to how well it benefits the upgrade. The only issue is that Lots More Darts does not synergize with the Spectre, since Lots More Darts will do nothing more than increased dart pierce, but the prior Rapid Fire does provide some benefit.
- Lots More Darts bears a striking resemblence to Even More Tacks for the Tack Shooter.
- Strangely, both upgrades were introduced first in Bloons Tower Defense 6.
