The base upgrade gives the Boomerang Monkey an orange jumpsuit with a yellow stripe on its chest and a yellow arrow on its head, and red accents.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Red Hot Rangs is an average upgrade on its own, which enables the Boomerang to deal 1 extra damage and pop Frozen and Lead bloons.
  • Its main use arises from crosspathing.
    • Top Path crosspath are generally better for Middle Path Boomerang upgrades, as middle path already is a damage powerhouse in the higher tiers.
    • For Top Path Boomerangs, however, Red Hot Rangs essentially doubles their popping power due to them only having 1 damage.
      • There is a special case for when Alchemist-buffing your Top Path boomerangs, whereas the Alchemist already provides the extra damage, the Middle Path upgrades give extra attack speed.
