Lotus Island is a Beginner Map in Bloons TD 6. It was released in the Version 19.0 update, on July 9th, 2020, alongside Odysseys.

Overview[]

Lotus Island is a somewhat rabbit-shaped island with lotuses. After three minutes, these lotuses bloom, revealing yellow orbs of pollen. If clicked, an orb explodes, stunning all bloons except BADs or Boss Bloons in its 30 (?) radius for 4 seconds (last 1 seconds for MOAB-Class Bloons). Blasts of lotus pollen have no pierce cap; a single blast can affect an infinite number of bloons. After activation, the lotus closes up and reopens again after another three minutes. Geraldo's Rejuv Potion can also reset cooldown of lotuses.

Lotus Island has a variety of obstacles on the map, blocking towers with Line of Sight. There is one highground spot on the stone podium where Snipers would benefit much from. Obviously, as an island, there's lots of water outside the perimeters of the island. There are a few smaller islands where smaller towers can be placed. The smallest island on the map can place up to one of a moderate-sized tower (i.e. up to the footprint size of Boomerang Monkey, Wizard Monkey, and Engineer Monkey).

Lotus Island also has a hidden function similar to Adora's Temple. When the Vengeful True Sun God is summoned atop the stone podium, the flowers turn from orange to purple, and their pollen explosions are dark red. Other than purely cosmetic, there is no special gameplay effect with that color change.

Tips[]

LotusIsland Early CHIMPS

Lotus Island Diagram of where to put towers

  • For the beginning of CHIMPS mode, put Sauda on the end of the top most claw figure near the end of the track (Circled in Red). Save up for a Ninja Monkey (Circled in Blue) and get it to a 3-0-2 and buff it with a 2-2-0 Alchemist (Circled in Pink). All of these towers can be purchased before round 29. be sure to keep upgrading the top paths on the Ninja and Alchemist Monkeys.
  • Due to their large damage increase (from +2 to +10 as much depending on the tier) to stunned bloons, middle-path Mortar Monkeys are very powerful on this island when using the flowers' stun property.

Trivia[]

  • This is the second Beginner Map to feature a special gameplay-related feature, the first being Frozen Over as of Version 17.0.
  • This map, as it was added at the same time as Odyssey Mode, is a reference to a part of the Odyssey where the Lotus Eaters give the crew magical lotus flowers which cause them to forget where they came from, forcing Odysseus to drag them back by force. The lotus's stunning effect is another reference to this.
  • The shape of the main island loosely resembles that of Australia, with the positions of the lotuses roughly corresponding to the geographic locations of Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Broome, and Darwin. Ninja Kiwi has stated that this is a coincidence.[1]
  • The lotuses are affected by the reset cooldown button in Sandbox, recharging when the button is pressed.
  • The 82nd Race Event, first released a few days after Version 19.0, uses the map Lotus Island.
  • The first ever week of Odyssey Mode in BTD6 started off with Lotus Island as the first island.
  • This map is arguably one of the hardest Beginner tracks due to the lack of junctions, the other being The Cabin. Nonetheless, the map is still much easier than Intermediate maps in general.
  • Before Version 25.0, the soundtrack for Lotus Island was Tribes and Tribulations, but was changed as of said update.
  • This map and Adora's Temple are the only 2 maps that change when the Vengeful True Sun God is summoned, with the buds of the Lotus flowers changing from orange to purple
