For the similar upgrade in BTD6, see Large Calibre.


Point Five Oh is the second upgrade on Path 1 for the Sniper Monkey in Bloons TD 5. It can destroy 7 layers per shot and thus can destroy a Lead or Zebra Bloon in one hit. This upgrade can also turn a Rainbow Bloon into 8 Red Bloons or a Ceramic Bloon into 16 Yellow Bloons.

In BTD5, it costs $1870 on Easy, $2200 on Medium, $2375 on Hard, and $2640 on Impoppable.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The head of a Sniper Monkey with this upgrade is the symbol of Easy Difficulty on Extreme tracks.
  • There is a 25-point achievement in SAS: Zombie Assault 3 called "Point 5 Oh". SAS: Zombie Assault 3 is a game made by Ninja Kiwi, the creators of Bloons TD games such as BTD5 and BTD6.
