Sprays out 16 tacks per volley instead of the usual 8.
~ BTD5 description

The Tack Sprayer is the third upgrade of Path 1 for the Tack Shooter in Bloons TD 5, costing $425 on Easy, $500 on Medium, $540 on Hard and $600 on Impoppable. Instead of 8 tacks shooting out, it shoots out 16 tacks, making it more powerful than before and pops more bloons too, allowing less bloons to sneak through defences.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Spamming Tack Sprayers is an effective option versus MOAB-class bloons, especially when paired with Monkey Fort and any other pierce buffs.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Sometimes the Tack Sprayer seems to pop 2 layers of bloon. That is because 2 tacks hit the same bloon.
  • Tack Sprayer can pop MOAB-Class Bloons far more efficiently than Ring of Fire.This is because the Ring of Fire only does 1 damage while many tacks can hit the bulky frame, resulting in about 5 damage.
  • A Tack Sprayer and a Blade Shooter can pop 16 bloons per shot even though Tack Sprayer upgrade is cheaper. However, it fires slower than a Blade Shooter.
  • Tack Sprayer upgrade icon shows only 12 tacks instead of 16.
  • This upgrade is more efficient paired with third and fourth level in Tack Research Center and other extra pierce boosts in Monkey Knowledge; this is because that more projectiles gain the extra pierce while there are lesser Blade Shooter's blades that gain the boosts.
