Inter-Tower Interactions, Tower-Tower Interactions, or simply Tower Interactions are instances of two of more towers or powers interacting with each other. As opposed to Player-Initiated interactions such as purchasing an upgrade, or activating an ability, Inter-Tower interactions are usually a secondary outcome of a player action and require at least two towers to be present. One of these towers acts as the source, and the other is the target.

An example would be selling a Portable Lake with a Monkey Sub inside. The removal of the Lake will also destroy the Monkey-Sub, despite the player not selling the Monkey-Sub first. A non-example would be Transforming Tonic. Even though the ability activation causes the Alchemist to turn into a Vicious Monster, these are both the same tower, and thus fail to satisfy the population requirements of a tower interaction (though this would be an example of intra-tower interactions).

In Bloons TD 6, there are several main instances of tower interactions: Standard Buffs, Transformation Buffs, Bloon Debuffs/Indirect Buffs, Sacrifice, Redeployment, Carrying, Deploy, Platforms and more. These categories may have some overlap. This page list all Tower Interactions in BTD6 organized by the aforementioned categories, with a short description and any unusual behavior "quirks".

List of All Standard Tower Interactions[]

Standard Buffs[]

See also: Tower Buffs

These interactions occur when one tower, the source, enhances the Attack Speed, Damage, Camo Detection, Income, or other statistical aspects of a target tower. This is the largest category of interactions.

  • When Flagship is sold, all towers on platform disappear.
  • Total Tranformation does not allow large towers to be moved onto the platform via Redeploy.
  • No Exceptions to selling rule.
  • Paragons can sit on top of the flagship via purchasing the upgrade on one of the consituent tier-5 towers that is already sitting on the flagship. However, they cannot be deployed onto the platform afterwards.

List of Indirect Tower Interactions[]

These categories do not perfectly fit the definition of direct tower interactions, usually due to requiring a third medium, such as a player, the map, or Bloons. However, it is still useful to mention them here.

Indirect Buffs (Bloon Debuffing)[]

This interaction occurs when a tower makes a Bloon slower or more vulnerable to attack, thus indirectly buffing another tower's attack. Several examples exist. Some may include these under Standard Buffs.
