Sharp Shooter does powerful Crit Shots every few seconds that do a lot more damage.
~ BTD6

Sharp Shooter is the fourth-tier Path 3 upgrade for the Dart Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It changes the original crossbow design to a more advanced design. This upgrade also gives the Dart Monkey black boots and a black cover for its tail.

It costs $1,700 on Easy, $2,000 on Medium, $2,160 on Hard and $2,400 on Impoppable.

This upgrade allows the Dart Monkey to shoot stronger arrows that can pop up to 6 layers. It also allows the Dart Monkey to shoot arrows that deal Critical damage, which pops at least 50 layers instead of 6. In this way, the Sharp Shooter can pop an entire Ceramic Bloon in a single shot if a Critical shot is made in the earlier rounds, and can defeat a MOAB in two Critical Hit Shots if all other shots also hit.

How critical damage works is that the arrows will shoot a critical damage arrow onto bloons once every few seconds (once every 8-12 shots).



Sharp Shooter can frequently miss its shots and its crits can be inconsistent. Due to this, many upgrades are more reliable than it. Its main attack gains extra damage, by +3 to be precise, but it otherwise only acts as supporting damage, due to the unreliability of the random critical hits.


  • This upgrade can be useful for chipping away at Zebras and Rainbows and for easily eliminating anything below them.

Update HistoryEdit


Buff Sharp Shooter now deals more damage per shot (4 —> 5).


Buff Sharp Shooter now deals more damage per shot (5 --> 6)



  • In Version 4.0, the Sharp Shooter normal damage per shot has become matched the normal damage that Crossbow Master makes minus the lead popping power.
    • In Version 12.0, the Sharp Shooter main attack damage per shot has been increased by +1, but has again ignored a buff to Crossbow Master. This gave Crossbow Master less non-crit base damage per shot.
      • This has since been fixed as of Version 12.1.
