Quick Shots about to throw a dart

This upgrade gives the Dart Monkey a green headband. For Spike-o-Pult and Juggernaut, these color changes are painted on the grips of the catapults instead.

Quick Shots grants +17.6% attack speed, (0.85x attack cooldown) or an attack cooldown of 0.8075s.

Targeting Priorities[]

Quick Shots targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It shoots a straight movement projectile.

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

Adding Enhanced Eyesight adds Camo Prioritization, allowing all its attacks to prioritize Camo Bloons over other types when this secondary targeting option is active.

Quick Shots adds a small attack speed boost to the Dart Monkey. Without additional upgrades, a Dart Monkey with only Quick Shots is less efficient than multiple 0-0-0 Dart Monkeys, but the Quick Shots upgrade is quite valuable when paired with additional Dart Monkey upgrades, especially Tier 3 and above.


  • Like many other low tier Dart Monkey upgrades, the main use of this upgrade is to cheaply improve the Dart Monkey, or serve as a stepping stone to a higher tier upgrade.
  • It is usually the best crosspath for both the top and bottom upgrade paths for the Dart Monkey, and even better with Very Quick Shots, its next upgrade.
