Pop Count

Pop Count is how many bloons a tower has popped. Every layer of a bloon a tower pop adds one to the towers pop count. Every time a tower hits a Ceramic Bloon, M.O.A.B., B.F.B., or Z.O.M.G., that does not go to their pop count, except in Bloons Tower Defense 6 where they count. However, if they get their multi-hit layer destroyed completely, it does count and gives the Pop count equivalent to the multi-hit layer bloon's children. However, in Bloons Tower Defense 6 damaging a Ceramic Bloon and M.O.A.B. Class Bloon does count.


  • Even though some towers like the Banana Farm do not pop Bloons, they still have a pop count.
    • In the mobile version the Banana Farm doesn't have a pop count. Neither does the Monkey Village, which will get pop count if upgraded to High Energy Beacon though.
  • Before the 5.0 update in BTD6, the pop count increases with cash collected from Banana Farms or other money-making towers like Merchantmen.
    • This was replaced with a new "Cash Count" icon.
  • In Bloons Tower Defense 5 Mobile, the Pop Count counter becomes 0 when a tower gets upgraded. This also applies to Bloons Tower Defense Battles Mobile and Bloons Monkey City Mobile, but in both cases it becomes normal again when that tower pops a bloon or if the player exits the tower's menu and reopens it.
