2-0-0 Razor Sharp Shots hitting 5 bloons per shot

Instead of a red headband as its BTD5 counterpart does, Razor Sharp Shots adds a red tailband on the middle of its tail. The monkey appears to be focusing a throwing dart.

Razor Sharp Shots increases pierce of each shot by +2, for a total of +3 pierce without Path 1 upgrades. One sole exception exists; 2-0-5 Crossbow Master which gains +7 pierce for a total of +13 pierce. Dart Monkeys without Upper Path 3 upgrades pierce increases from 3 to 5, while Crossbow and Sharp Shooter pierce increases from 4 to 6. Crossbow Master's pierce increases from 14 to 21. Plasma Monkey Fan Club transformed monkeys pierce increases from 6 to 8.

Targeting Priorities[]

Razor Sharp Shots targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It shoots straight movement projectiles.

  • 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.

Extra pierce is useful for the Dart Monkey at improving pierce. Although less powerful than the Very Quick Shots upgrade overall, a Dart Monkey with Razor Sharp Shots is helpful at hitting more bloons per dart, handy for tackling hard early-game rounds with large quantities of bloons.


  • To make the most of the extra pierce, try letting the Dart Monkey shoot along straight lines.
  • For a 2-3-0 Dart Monkey, the same principle for optimizing the Razor Sharp Shots upgrade would apply, but also try to optimize the laterally thrown darts that are approximately 30 degrees apart by angle.

Version History[]

Balance Changes[]

Razor Sharp Shots has only been changed once with a crosspathing change to Crossbow Master.

The total pierce of a base Dart Monkey with this upgrade is higher, as the base Dart Monkey pierce has increased to 2 instead of 1. However, the upgrade cost is higher in this game.

Initial release
  • BUFF Razor Sharp Shots pops more Bloons (4 → 5)
  • NERF Razor Sharp Shots costs more ($170 → $220)
  • BUFF Razor Sharp Shots now gives +7 pierce to Crossbow Master instead of +2.

Bug Fixes and General Changes[]

Extra Notes (Version History)[]

  • When Razor Sharp Shots' pierce benefit to Crossbow Master was buffed from +2 to +7 in Version 18.0, the total pierce of the 2-0-5 Crossbow Master went down from 26 to 23. Likewise, Version 33.0's generalistic pierce nerf decreased 1-0-5 Crossbow Master's pierce from 23 to 21.
