The dart monkey, the most recognizable monkey of all. It’s a great starting tower, and has decent popping power. However, with the many new upgrades, I’ve been wondering which one is best?
BTD5 vs BTD6 Dart Monkeys
The BTD6 dart monkey is very interesting. It is both similar and different from the BTD5 dart monkeys. The BTD6 description reads:
Throws a single dart at nearby Bloons. Short range and low pierce but cheap.
The 0-0 dart monkey in BTD5 pops one bloon per shot. Pierce 1, damage 1.
Just so we’re clear, pierce refers to how many bloons a single projectile goes through before expiring. Damage refers to how many layers of bloon that each projectile does. For example, 2 damage would pop one rainbow bloon into two white and two black bloons, skipping the zebra layer.
The 0-0-0 dart monkey in BTD6 pops two bloons per shot. Pierce 1, damage 1. Same as BTD5.
Here’s a table I made of the total cost/selling price of all Dart Monkey variants on all difficulties, as of v2.0.0. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MmlrHkcqwYhlqWOWFIXbt_f8P8kcCJswmYEL9Di5T8U
