*Unlike in BTD6, it is not possible to purchase both [[Full Metal Jacket]]/[[Large Caliber]] and [[Night Vision Goggles]] at the same time. For most occasions, the Path 1 upgrades are better, unless aiming towards a 0-2-5 [[Elite Defender]], since Elite Defender with [[Shrapnel Shot]] has overall higher DPS than the 2-0-5 crosspath.

Attacks 3x as fast!
~ BTD6 description

Semi-Automatic is the 3rd upgrade of Path 3 for the Sniper Monkey in BTD6. This upgrade allows the Sniper Monkey to fire three times as fast. Compared to BTD5's Semi-Automatic Rifle upgrade, a Sniper Monkey with Semi-Automatic will shoot substantially faster; it shoots 3x faster than Even Faster Firing, equating to ~7.7x faster than a normal Sniper. However, it cannot pop Frozen or Lead Bloons without Full Metal Jacket or upgrading further to Full Auto Rifle.

It costs $2975 on Easy, $3500 on Medium, $3780 on Hard, and $4200 on Impoppable.

Trivia

  • Although the upgrade name suggests that the sniper rifle becomes semi-automatic, the monkey still operates the bolt to re-chamber.
  • In BTD6, the Semi-Automatic upgrade icon features two large magazines of long pointed high-caliber bullets. In contrast, in BTD5, the upgrade icon features three darts zooming past in sequence.
  • Semi-Automatic Rifle gains a pair of earmuffs instead of a new black metal helmet.
  • This upgrade is one of few upgrades that attacks exactly 3x faster than their predecessors, the others being Overdrive and Glue Hose.
    • Artillery Battery used to attack exactly 3x faster than Heavy Shells, but this is no longer the case due to a buff to its attack speed (4x instead of 3x).
