Bloons Wiki

Ranged is an attack style characterized as an attack done from a distance between the attacker and the target. It is a type of method of attacking. It is part of the attack interactions family.

Ranged is represented on Bloons Wiki as Ranged (Creates an attack by the use of a ranged attack), the hero icon for Quincy in Bloons TD 6, who wields a bow as his weapon, and bows are the most popular form of representation of ranged weapons in media. The icon was chosen over the upgrade icon for Long Range Darts in Bloons TD 6 to maintain thematic consistency with its counterpart Melee (Creates an attack within close range via melee means) Melee and to avoid potential confusion with Extended Range (unspecified extension of range beyond current base range, whether it be infinite range or just extended range) Extended Range and Moderate Seeking Moderate Seeking, which have similar looking icons.

In the Bloons TD series, ranged attacks involve either projectiles or gradual movement of attacks outside the point of origin, or both. As almost all Bloons TD towers have this method of attack, Ranged is generally omitted from being indexed in attack interactions lists and tables for these towers due to its ubiquity in the Bloons TD series.

In Bloons Adventure Time TD, ranged attacks play a more important role for Characters, specifically because of trinkets that grant bonuses to ranged attacks.
