Camo Bloons popped by this tower permanently lose their camo status, and can be attacked by towers without camo detection.
~ Official Description

Signal Flare is the third upgrade on the second path for the Mortar Tower in Bloons TD 5. It allows the Mortar Tower to detect and attack Camo Bloons while also stripping the camo property out of any bloon hit by the explosion. In Bloons TD 5, the Mortar Tower cannot target Camos without this upgrade. When a bloon is struck by this upgrade, the bloon loses its camo status, allowing any tower to freely attack it. In Bloons Monkey City, a perk from the Mortar Monkey's knowledge pack allows this upgrade to both drop the camo and regen property off bloons.

It costs $425 on Easy, $500 on Medium, $540 on Hard, and $600 on Impoppable. In Bloons Monkey City, it costs $750 normally and about $640 when favored.



Signal Flare both strips off camo and deals effective bloon damage. It is useful for decamoing various bloon types, especially groups of Camo Bloons, as well as valued mostly for popping Camo Leads reliably.
