Bloons Wiki
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 enables the tower to target Camo Bloons, utilize the Camo Prioritization option, and attack with increased (+3) range. Combined with the X-Ray Ultra Monkey Knowledge enabled, the Super Monkey will also be able to shoot through line-of-sight obstacles.

The Ultravision upgrade costs $1,020 on Easy difficulty, $1,200 on Medium, $1,295 on Hard, and $1,440 on Impoppable.

Description[]

Appearance[]

A Super Monkey with Ultravision receives a mask with no visible eye sockets, as well as gaining a second orange band along the forehead of the Super Monkey costume. However, receiving any crosspath makes the eye sockets visible again, and only adds a second orange band. Both orange bands are on two sides of the Super Monkey's forehead.

Mechanics[]

Ultravision grants Camo Detection, Camo Prioritization, and +3 range.

With the X-Ray Ultra Monkey Knowledge, it also allows bypassing of Line of Sight.

Targeting Priorities[]

Ultravision targets bloons using the standard targeting priorities. It shoots straight movement projectiles.

  • First: Targets the first bloon visible within its range.
  • Last: Targets the last bloon visible within its range.
  • Close: Targets the closest bloon visible within its range.
  • Strong: Targets the strongest bloon visible within its range.

Ultravision can access Camo Prioritization, allowing all its attacks to prioritize Camo Bloons over other types when this secondary targeting option is active.

Strategy[]

Summary[]

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.

Tips[]

  • 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.
  • With the X-Ray Ultra Monkey Knowledge, Ultravision is a very viable useful on maps with plenty of line-of-sight obstacles, especially for Sun Avatars.

Version History[]

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).

Trivia[]

  • 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.
