Makes darts shoot with greater velocity. Darts move faster and can pop 3 bloons each.
~ BTD5 Flash description

Powerful Darts is the first upgrade in path 2 for Dartling Gun in BTD5, which allows the Dartling Gun's darts pop 3 bloons (4 in BTDB Mobile) each at greater projectile speed. The Dartling Gun is much more powerful with it, as it can be used to counter small groups of bloons. This upgrade also gives a slight dart rate increase for the Dartling Gun, just like the Missile Launcher upgrade on the Bomb Tower.

It costs $510 on Easy, $600 on Medium, $650 on Hard, and $720 on Impoppable.



Powerful Darts increases pierce of all Dartling Gun shots. This makes the Dartling Gun better for handling groups of normal bloons.


  • One Powerful Darts Dartling is better than multiple Dartlings at handling bloons for its price, but worse than multiple Dartlings at single-target bloons.
  • It is less needed in Bloons Monkey City once the Dartling Gun reaches Level 3+ via Monkey Knowledge Packs, as it already will gain a decent amount of pierce to start off. It is still useful for making Dartlings better at grouped bloons, however.



  • There used to be a bug in Bloons TD Battles Mobile where the Powerful Darts description was not updated to match the existing buffs that were done in Version 4.3.1. This has since been fixed in Version 5.0.
