Plasma Blasts is the second upgrade on path 1 in BTD5. It makes the Super Monkey shoot plasma balls instead of lasers that can pop any type of bloon, as well as increasing the number of bloons it can pop by 1. Additionally it will increase the rate of fire to 30/sec. This upgrade returns in BTD6 as Plasma Blasts.

It costs $4250 on Easy, $5000 on Medium, $5400 on Hard, and $6000 on Impoppable.



  • A Super Monkey with Plasma Vision is better at taking down non M.O.A.B. Class Bloons than a Robo Monkey with no Path 1 upgrades.
  • A Robo Monkey with Plasma Vision can fire 2 Plasma streams, with a higher popping power of 5 for each arm compared to the 3 of this tower.
  • In Co-op Mode in BTD5, Plasma Vision used to be nerfed and it shoots slower, but pops twice as much bloons; this was mostly based on computer performance.
  • On BTD Battles, this tower (and by extention the Robo Monkey) is affected by lag, and can in some cases shoot at half speed. While on BTD5 (and Deluxe), it is a solid beam of plasma.
  • On Bloons TD 5 Mobile, and Bloons TD Battles Mobile, this tower shoots slower than double the speed of lasers. This is noticable when comparing its firing speed to the Robo Monkey, the gap between each projectile is larger.
  • In Bloons Monkey City, the artwork shows the "B" from the chest in a mirror-like view.
