In BTD6, additional upgrades may modify the original suit, or it may change the currently dominant upgrade's appearance. When pairing it with Path 3 upgrades, the beret will be colored purple on one side plus grey/orange (depending on upgrade) on the other side. Adding Night Vision Goggles will give the tower night vision goggles. Adding Shrapnel Shot will add an explosion symbol to the beret. Adding Bouncing Bullet will turn the army hat's coating purple. Adding Supply Drop will color the "bush hair" purple with black.
