Striker Jones is a strong Commander who uses his knowledge of long range combat to greatly boost the power of explosives.
~ Bloons TD6

Striker Jones is a Hero in Bloons TD 6. He specializes in military weaponry. He's unable to pop camo, and mainly supports Bomb Shooters and Mortar Monkeys. He's also unable to pop Black Bloons, until level 5, which makes all Black Bloon properties less resistant to explosives. When he reaches at least Level 19, the Black Bloon property is fully nullified while he is on the map, thereby allowing any explosive projectile to damage Black Bloons, Zebra Bloons, and DDTs.

He costs $640 on Easy, $750 on Medium, $815 on Hard, and $900 on Impoppable.

UpgradesEdit

Striker Jones will start upgrading himself every round upon placement. He earns more XP each round to unlock his next upgrade irrespective of how many bloons he pops. His upgrades can also be immediately bought with cash, though the amount of cash required to purchase the next upgrade will typically increase as the upgrades get higher, making self-upgrading an important element for his overall power.

TriviaEdit

  • Both Jones and Captain Churchill use military weapons.
  • The Biker Bones skin is based off of a meme in the Bloons community where Striker Jones is referred to as Biker Bones, using the emoji for the B blood type (🅱️) to subsitute for the "B"s in his name. This meme originated from when Jones was considered one of the worst heroes to use and was mockingly called Biker Bones, the same way Peter Griffin from Family Guy is sometimes called Beter Briffin by memers.
    • The skin is also a reference to Ghost Rider from Marvel Comics, being a skeletal biker with flames, and a spirit of vengeance.
