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.

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Both Jones and Captain Churchill use military weapons.
  • Coincidentally, Jones also does not know what a B.A.D bloon is, Depicted from when he says: "Target that big huge one!"
  • 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.
  • The Octojones skin resembles Davy Jones from the Disney series Pirates of the Caribbean, but the skin is not named "Davy Jones" due to copyright reasons.
  • Striker Jones is the third Hero to gain a second skin, the first Hero being Quincy, and second Hero being Gwendolin.
