Throws three darts at a time instead of one.
~ Description

Triple Darts is the 3rd upgrade of path two for the Dart Monkey in BTD5. It makes the Dart Monkey shoot 3 darts at a time instead of one. It may help a lot early on depending on what towers you can buy. Its icon appears as 3 purple darts. This upgrade allows the Dart Monkey to pop up to 12 bloons (4 per dart).

In BTD6, it is the third upgrade of Path 2 for the Dart Monkey. With this upgrade, Dart Monkeys will also shoot three darts at a time instead of one. However, the darts only have 2-4 pierce (+1 or +2 pierce when Path 1 upgrades are bought as well or the Primary Monkey Knowledge Points are used). It costs $TBA on Easy, $400 on Medium, $TBA on Hard.

Update History (Bloons TD Battles Mobile)

Triple Darts has always been a popular upgrade throughout the entire history of Bloons TD Battles Mobile due to the much larger hitbox area significantly making it reliable against early-game grouped and spaced rushes. Due to how reliable it was compared to its price, it has been overall nerfed in terms of price.


Nerf Triple Darts price increased ($330 → $380).


Nerf Triple Darts price increased ($380 → $400).


Nerf Triple Darts price increased ($400 → $500).


Buff Triple Darts price decreased ($500 → $475).


  • This upgrade is a good alternative if the tower isn't well placed to upgrade to Spike-O-Pult.
  • This upgrade may have been based on the Triple Shot bloon from Bloons and Bloons 2.
  • It will pop 2, or even 3 layers of bloons if hit in close range, because a bloon is hit by 2 or 3 darts.

  • A massive amount of Triple Darts can destroy a rush of Ceramic Bloons or single MOABs.
  • A lot of these combined with some Juggernauts (for Leads) or with Splodey Darts premium you can beat most tracks on Easy or Medium difficulties and some on Hard.
  • These are helpful with Splodey Darts: In fact, you can beat most tracks on any difficulty by spamming 2/3 dart monkeys if you have Splodey Darts. Tier 3 Dart Training Facility is very helpful with this strategy.
  • With the Dart Training Facility Specialty Building, you can get 2-3 Dart Monkeys for roughly 1100/1200/1400 Money with a paid tower and 950/1050/1250 Money with a free tower, being Easy, Medium, and Hard difficulties, respectively.
  • This tower is better on the mobile versions of Bloons TD because the darts are much larger, meaning it will pop more bloons most of the time.
  • In BMC Mobile, you have a chance that you get a hint that tells "Dart Monkey's triple SHOT upgrade ". This was probably unintentional. This has been patched, as it now reads, "Dart Monkey's triple shot upgrade is very powerful. Research it as soon as you can."
  • This tower is surprisingly useful in Battles (especially in mobile), due to its capability to deal with both spaced and grouped bloons effectively. Because of this it's been nerfed 3 times via game updates, making it one of the most nerfed upgrades in the history of Bloons TD Battles (along with Supa-Vac).
