Shoots 10 tacks instead of 8, plus increases Ring of Fire damage.
~ In-game description

More Tacks is the first upgrade of Path 3 for the Tack Shooter in Bloons TD 6. It allows the Tack Shooter to shoot 10 tacks instead of 8. However, the arrangement of the tack formation will be different, preventing the Tack Shooter from shooting directly horizontally or directly below, until Even More Tacks is purchased. When crosspathed with Ring of Fire or Inferno Ring, it adds +1 damage.

This upgrade costs $85 on Easy, $100 on Medium, $110 on Hard, and $120 on Impoppable.



This upgrade adds two more barrels, for a total of 10. It also replaces the flanged base with a circular base.


Shoots 10 tacks instead of 8. Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring with this crosspath gains +1 damage.

Targeting Priorities[]

More Tacks shoots a spray of projectiles in an radial fashion. The Tack Shooter has no explicit Targeting Priority, but it is technically locked to Close whenever the Pierce capacity is reached.

For a rather low price, More Tacks adds +2 bonus projectiles. As such, it is usually used as a cheap way to improve a low-tier Tack Shooter in the early game. It is usually a stepping stone to its further upgrades, but in itself it can be useful in a very few special scenarios.


  • Blade Shooter and its upgrades generally benefit more from the top crosspath, although Blade Maelstrom and Super Maelstrom abilities do not benefit from any of the crosspaths.
  • Inferno Ring generally prefers the middle crosspath as it gives it more area where it can damage the bloons.
    • The bottom crosspath can achieve similar damage, but only if the placement is unfavourable to the additional range.
  • Avoid purchasing this upgrade unless it is to get Even More Tacks, although in a few cases it can be a clutch benefit in certain situations.

Version History[]

Balance Changes[]

Mostly modified crosspathing with Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring, removing the special case granting bonus pierce to each flame ring in exchange for bonus damage.

  • Buff Affected by base Tack Shooter attack speed buff
Inferno Ring has felt very outclassed for a long time, and more recently the tack shooter was reworked to give pierce on x2x which made the old 402 pierce crosspath not make as much sense anymore. We wanted to start work on both these issues together by reworking how Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring interact with crosspaths
~ Ninja Kiwi, referring to Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring
  • Nerf Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring no longer gain +10 pierce with More Tacks
The Ring of Fire & Inferno Ring upgrades recently received a crosspath functional rework, as we're happy with the x2x range/pierce combo now this small follow-up is just to bring a bit more impact to the short-range 402 variant.
~ Ninja Kiwi, referring to Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring
  • Buff Ring of Fire and Inferno Ring gain +1 damage with More Tacks
  • Change Description was changed from "Shoots 10 tacks instead of 8." to "Shoots 10 tacks instead of 8, plus increases Ring of Fire damage."


Official artwork[]


  • More Tacks is one of four upgrades in the game whereby the cost of the Path 3 Tier 1 upgrade cost is exactly the same as the cost of the Path 3 Tier 2 upgrade, the other being Sniper Monkey's Fast Firing and Even Faster Firing, Monkey Village's Monkey Business and Monkey Commerce, and Wizard Monkey's Intense Magic and Monkey Sense.
  • On Version 20.0, the 0-1-3 Marketplace (with Long Life Bananas) and the 4-0-1 Ring of Fire (with More Tacks) were both upgrade crosspaths with no benefits compared to their no-crosspath counterparts. This is no longer the case, because 4-0-1 Ring of Fire as of Version 21.0 now adds +1 damage.
  • The upgrade icon for More Tacks shows two tacks being shot out, even though technically the Tack Shooter only shoots out 1.25x the tacks compared to before the upgrade.
