Strategies and TacticsEdit
As a fifth-tier tower, only one PMFC Dart Monkey can exist at a time so time your ability usage correctly. It's also not a bad idea to invest in many miscellaneous Dart Monkeys in order to maximize the ability's potential.
Due to the ability cooldown nerf in BTD6, most towers with abilities, including the Plasma Monkey Fan Club, will start with one quarter of cooldown time, which means players cannot buy this to save your skin in a pinch. Players must plan ahead when using this tower.
It is also important to note that the ability can transform the equivalent of four other Super Monkey Fan Clubs for a total of 40 monkeys.
When it comes to usage of the ability, it essentially functions as advertised: a vastly-stronger version of the Super Monkey Fan Club ability, turning legions of feeble Dart Monkeys into a nigh-unstoppable army of Plasma Monkeys. If players feel that you may be overwhelmed, or a particularly strong bloon such as a Z.O.M.G. or B.A.D. is onscreen, do not hesitate to activate the ability. Combined with a Homeland Defense Village, the monkeys can easily tear through almost anything.
If a Total Transformation (Tier 5 Alchemist) is placed near some Dart Monkeys that are in the vicinity of a PMFC then it is possible to do even millions of DPS by using the PMFC ability followed by Total Transformation. (Using them in reverse order will not work)
