Tack Shooter.png

The Tack Shooter is a tower which appears in the entire Bloons Tower Defense series. It shoots eight tacks, one in each direction (every 45 degrees), which can pop one Bloon each. It cannot pop Lead Bloons until it acquires the Ring of Fire upgrade, nor can it detect Camo Bloons. It is useful when placed around corners or U-turns, which have the highest area of exposure to the Tack Shooter's spread of fire.


Path 1[]

  • Faster Shooting: Shoots tacks faster!
  • Even Faster Shooting: Shoots tacks even faster!
  • Tack Sprayer: Sprays out 16 tacks per volley instead of the usual 8.
  • Ring of Fire: Upgrade to a fast firing burst tower that shoots a deadly ring of flame instead of tacks.


Bloons TD Battles (Mobile)[]

In BTD Battles (Mobile), Tack Shooter is alike to a dart monkey but the projectile is Tack instead of a dart, also shoots in all directions but has very short range and is not a monkey but a machine that open fires tacks against bloons that passes within it's range. This tower can only hold off few rounds, as it's damage is low, making it useless afterwards few rounds. The best place to use this is at the U-turns.
