Enables Super Monkey to shoot slightly further and to see Camo Bloons.
~ BTD6 description
Ultravision is the second upgrade on Path 3 for the Super Monkey in BTD6. It slightly increases the Super Monkey's range (specifically by +3) and allows it to target Camo Bloons. Ultravision also grants access to the Camo Prioritization target priority.
Ultravision gives the Super Monkey with internal camo detection, allowing it not need to rely on other sources of camo detection such as Radar Scanner to be added. Plus, it comes with the Knockback effects from its previous upgrade. However, if there is already a reliable source of external camo detection for the Super Monkey, there is little value to buying this upgrade besides giving the Super Monkey with slightly increased range.
It's worth mentioning that this upgrade increases the range of the Super Monkey by 3 units, or 6% without any other upgrades.
Although not a particularly impressive upgrade, crosspathing it with the Sun Avatar is viable as the previous upgrade, Knockback, is essential to the Sun Avatar.
Middle Path Super tends to prefer the Top Path in order to add better DPS, but Ultravision allows them to affect Camos directly. In particular, this is handy for 0-4-2 Tech Terror to clump up DDTs without needing external support.
This upgrade is easily made redundant with a Radar Scanner Monkey Village, as the Village can crosspath to further boost your Super Monkey and buff other towers as well.
Mainly influenced by Knockback, but Ultravision isn't itself influenced by Knockback in terms of the viability of Ultravision, so only info related to Ultravision itself is mentioned here.
Instead of saying the same thing each time; many specific crosspaths that add a 'camo specialty' to a tower end up being viewed as rather inferior crosspaths due to camo being quite available to pick up through other methods. To give these upgrades more use even with other forms of camo reveal in play, we have added a brand new Camo Prioritization option that is added to the towers when taking this crosspath. When enabled this filter combines the selected target method with Camo Prioritization (e.g. Strong Camo would work through all Camos in strength order, then revert to normal Strong until any new Camos show up).

The Ultravision upgrade is likely based upon the Tier 3 Super Monkey Lair, which grants camo detection and extra range to Super Monkeys.
Super Monkeys with just Ultravision do not have visible eyes, but adding any other crosspath will add eyes to the Super Monkey.
