Update History (Bloons TD Battles Mobile)[edit | edit source]

This ability has always been a good way to defend against a lot of rushes (such as the notorious RRROD), and has become even more reliable thanks to it now being able to deal with Camo Bloons. However because of this it became very hard to try to kill a player if they brought the Boomerang Thrower in their loadout since they could easily place down a 2/4 Boomer and easily destroy any rushes. Overall this upgrade has been buffed as it's better overall at defending rushes compared to the initial release of Bloons TD Battles Mobile.
