Tower sacrifices enhance and modify the Temple's attacks.
~ BTD6 description
The Temple demands sacrifice. All nearby towers will be destroyed, enhancing the Temple's incredible power in different ways. You have been warned...
~ Warning prior to upgrading to Sun Temple

Sun Temple is the fourth upgrade of Path 1 for the Super Monkey in Bloons TD 6. It shoots hypersonic blasts of energy which pop 5 layers per hit and have 20 pierce, along with +30% range to the temple itself. It acts similarly to the Temple of the Monkey God in Bloons TD 5; however the Sun Temple's sacrifice mechanics work differently. Instead of 4 specific tower types plus one single miscellaneous towers category for each sacrifice category, the Sun Temple splits each of its 4 sacrifice categories into Primary, Military, Magic, and Support, but can only accept 3 of the most expensive categories sacrificed to it.

It costs $85,000 on Easy, $100,000 on Medium, $108,000 on Hard, and $120,000 on Impoppable, although these upgrade costs do not take into account the costs of sacrifices absorbed into the temple.

SacrificesEdit

Warning message when attempting to upgrade a Sun Avatar to Sun Temple

The different classes of sacrifices can be achieved by sacrificing a certain amount of money spent on a specific class. Those amounts and powers gained are listed below. A maxed temple can have abilities from 3 of the 4 categories of towers, requiring $50,000 per category. If all 4 categories are placed near the temple, it will neglect the class with the lowest amount of money spent.

There are up to 9 different tiers of Temple sacrifices for the Temple.

StrategiesEdit

SummaryEdit

The Sun Temple is one of the strongest towers in the game. It is usually only affordable late-game and as such performs a role as a strong late-game tower that supports the main tower, which is almost always the True Sun God/Avatar of the Vengeful Monkey. The Sun Temple unfortunately, can cause a lot of lag, but otherwise does its job well.

TipsEdit

  • Apply buffs on your Sun Temple to improve its abilities. Pat Fusty's Rallying Roar, Permanent BrewOverclockUltraboost, Call to Arms, and Homeland Defense are all good abilities which strengthen your Sun Temple.
    • An important thing to note when buffing a Temple is that range-dependent buffs, such as Permanent Brew, Pat Fusty's Rallying Roar, and Call to Arms, will be sacrificed upon upgrading to Sun Temple or True Sun God.
    • Permanent Brew can be moved around with Support Chinook to buff multiple Sun Temples and have a more organised map.
    • Having multiple Overclocks is required if full uptime is desired. As a Sun Temple costs over $40,000, there is a 15 second gap with 1 Overclock where the Temple wouldn't be buffed.
    • Homeland Defense buffs all towers, so there is more space to fit other towers such as more Sun Temples in better spots.
  • Use maps that can fit many Sun Temples. If you are using a strategy with Sun Temples, it is highly suggested to fit as many of them as possible, up to 11 excluding a True Sun God.
    • Sun Temples sacrifice towers at their middle pixel. Keep this in mind when compacting many Sun Temples in a map.
  • Sun Temples can be placed on water, but they need an Arctic Wind Ice Monkey's ice platforms or a Pontoon to provide a platform for the Sun Avatar. When the Sun Temple is bought, the platform will be sacrificed and the Sun Temple will remain on the water.
    • When placed in water, the Carrier Flagship buff and Admiral Brickell's Naval Tactics Ability apply to it and can be a way to add a very powerful boost to your Sun Temple.
    • It is possible to use Portable Lakes in comination with Arctic Wind to place water Temples almost anywhere.
  • Sun Temples are rarely used in CHIMPS. Although the sacrificing of towers provides one of few ways to remove towers without selling, the extremely high price makes using Temples impractical where farming is disabled.
    • Although a Sun Temple is affordable in CHIMPS, hefty sacrifice and support is required to give the Temple enough power to beat high-difficulty Rounds, such as 98 and 100.

TriviaEdit

  • Unlike the Temple of the Monkey God, the Sun Temple does not gain automatic camo detection. It helps if the recently built Sun Temple is supported by a x-2-x Village.
  • Before version 2.0 there was a bug where if a Monkey Village (with 2 paths invested into and one of those paths is the third) is sacrificed for a sun temple, it will provide no value to the sun temple.
  • The Support Class upgrades do not affect the Golden Spectres or the Mini Sun Avatars.
  • Sun Temple used to sacrifice placeable Powers such as Monkey Farmers. This was removed as of Version 12.0, probably due to the fact that they do not contribute to the Sun Temple whatsoever.
  • Heroes will not be sacrificed to the temple, even if it is within the range however if the hero is too close, it will be locked until the player exits and re-enters. Note that if 'sacrificed', any money spent on the hero will NOT be returned and only the base sell price will be given.
    • However in Version 14.0 Heroes won't disappear even if they're right next to the Temple.
  • Although not mentioned in the official Version 16.0 patch notes, Ninja Kiwi nerfed the $50,000+ Support Sacrifices income from +$10,000 per round to +$5000 per round.
  • The Sun Temple upgrade increases the Super Monkey's footprint from 11 to 20. This is further increased to 25 with the True Sun God.
  • Even though Version 19.0 added a separate money counter for almost all towers, it has not been yet implemented for Lead to Gold, Rubber to Gold, Monkey Town (and by extent Monkey City), Pirate Lord, Support Chinook (and by extent Special Poperations), and Jungle's Bounty. It has yet to be fully implemented for Spirit of the Forest (ability only), and Sun Temple and True Sun God / Avatar of the Vengeful Monkey with Support sacrifices.
    • Specifically, the income-per-pop part is not yet implemented, but the end-of-round cash has, however.
