Never one to stay on her throne in times of trouble, the leader of the Candy Military can call forth a variety of units to help defend against the bloon invasion.

~ Short description

Warrior Bubblegum, or Warrior PB for short, is the name given to a character in Bloons Adventure Time TD. She is Princess Bubblegum but within the context of a war that she faced in the Candy Kingdom.

In the game Warrior Bubblegum can be unlocked by clearing the Candy Kingdom campaign "Necro Candy" in Hard difficulty only. She costs $350 to be placed.

Wielding a sword, she is less cost efficient than fellow sword-wielder Finn but can be upgraded to become a powerful support tower, like the Monkey Engineer. Her upgrades are based around three paths; an ally-upgrades path, character-summons path and offensive path.

Star Boost[]

Warrior PB will receive the following permanent boosts as she levels up:

  • 2 stars - Base attack pierce increased by 2
  • 4 stars - Base range increased by 2
  • 6 stars - Base attack cooldown decreased by 0.2*
  • 8 stars - Base range increased by 3
  • 9 stars - Base attack pierce increased by 2
  • 10 stars - Starts with Candy Archers pre-purchased for free

*Shows "attack speed increased by X" in the official patch notes and in the game - this is misleading. The attack speed stat is the inverse of attack cooldown.

Strategy[]

Her main use is for the Born to Rule upgrade, which allows for all Allies to be placed one extra time per character, effectively doubling the amount of allies in the player's arsenal. This is primarily for damaging allies like Tech Terrors and Vampire King and supportive allies like Lemonhope, Gumbald, and Hunson Abadeer. Additionally, the high costs of each Tech Terror are cut by $3000 each with Born to Rule, so Born to Rule also saves money buying expensive allies. Warrior Bubblegum's summoned allies are very useful on Martian Games with Wizard Attack or Magic Man enabled, since they can provide cheap distractions for the wizards' single-target negative status effect spells.

Because Warrior bubblegum's offensive capabilities are quite limited, she is generally used either as a support against non-BAD bloons or eco. If she is used as a support, 4D Sword is generally best to for cleaning up MOABs. Otherwise Excandibur can be used for buffing her Grob Gob Glob Grod, or Night Sword for draining the soul of MOABs. If she is used for eco instead, she should be built for attack speed with the standard income equipment, such as Thief King's Dagger and Banana Replicator.

As a character primarily purchased for more allies, Warrior Bubblegum is generally the best choice for passive-effect trinkets like the Future Crystal, Magic Coin Purse, and Time Travel Machine that would occupy valuable slots on other characters, as her own offensive capabilities are not a main focus for her use.

Note that after buying *every* ally the player wants with Born to Rule, the player can sell and rebuy her once if she is at least level 7, so she can get her Gumball Guardian ability which contributes decent DPS.

Trivia[]

  • The Candy Archers seem like they are slightly better and more offensive version of King of Ooo.
  • The Gumball Guards are seemingly better version of Rattleballs ally that you can't choose where they spawn at and spawn anywhere, while trying to reach track to hit bloons.
  • In Martian Games events with the Send in the Clones rule, since Warrior Bubblegum can be placed an unlimited amount of times, the Born to Rule upgrade can be bought multiple times, allowing the placement of a nearly unending supply of allies, though it does not affect the ally placement discounts further.

  • It is possible to beat all of Necro Candy on Extreme Difficulty, but Warrior Bubblegum will still be not unlocked. This is also reflected by the fact that the icon for her unlock only appears on the Hard Difficulty Adventure Chest in Necro Candy.
