Shoots 10 tacks instead of 8, plus increases Ring of Fire damage.
~ BTD6 description

More Tacks is the first upgrade of Path 3 for the Tack Shooter in BTD6. 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.

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


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 Tack Shooter earlygames. 


  • 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 (BTD6)Edit
