Allows the Wizard to hit Camo Bloons.
~ In-game description

Monkey Sense is the second upgrade on the third path for the Wizard Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It allows the Wizard Monkey attack Camo Bloons. Unlike BTD5, this upgrade is along a different path to Fireball and all other fire-related upgrades. In addition, Monkey Sense Wizards gain access to Camo Prioritization target options.

It costs $255 on Easy, $300 on Medium, $325 on Hard, and $360 on Impoppable.



Visually, the monkey gains a pair of large thin black spectacles, along with a wide-brimmed wizard hat with purple crescents and a large purple gem on the front.


Targeting Priorities[]

Monkey Sense 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.

Monkey Sense can access Camo Prioritization, allowing all its attacks to prioritize Camo Bloons over other types when this secondary targeting option is active.




Simply speaking, this upgrade gives the Wizard Monkey camo detection. In practice, Monkey Sense is useful with Path 2 for cheap Camo Lead popping power, or with Path 1 to pass walls and home energy at bloons. It is also useful for Arcane Spike to detect DDTs.


  • Buy this upgrade once there is an abundance of Camo Bloons or in preparations for Camo Bloons. Don't simply buy it pre-emptively without knowing Camo Bloons are an imminent threat.

Version History[]

Mostly inherits buffs from Intense Magic and the base Wizard. However, Version 28.0 changed Monkey Sense to work as a camo specializer, gaining a Camo Prioritization target option that specifically targets Camos first.

  • Buff Main bolt has more pierce (7 → 8, from base Wizard buff and inherited from Intense Magic).
Instead of saying the same thing each time; many specific crosspaths that add a 'camo specialty' to a tower end up being viewed as rather inferior crosspaths due to camo being quite available to pick up through other methods. To give these upgrades more use even with other forms of camo reveal in play, we have added a brand new Camo Prioritization option that is added to the towers when taking this crosspath. When enabled this filter combines the selected target method with Camo Prioritization (e.g. Strong Camo would work through all Camos in strength order, then revert to normal Strong until any new Camos show up).

  • In BTD5, gaining a pair of large thin black spectacles was for the Tier 1 upgrades for the Monkey Apprentice, but in BTD6 only the 0-0-2, 0-1-2, and 0-2-2 upgrades wear similar glasses.
