Tips

  • Can pop camo with 5L and all right upgrades. 4M and 5M will stun camo bloons, but won't aim at them or harm them.
  • Can pop lead by default.
  • Can damage HTAs by default.
  • 3S is almost completely incapable of damaging shielded/static bloons, and 4S does greatly reduced damage to them.
  • While 4S and 5S won't target camo bloons, their projectiles will pop camo bloons (if a wave also contains some non-camo bloons for them to shoot at).

Advantages/Disadvantages

Advantages

  • Some of the best grouped popping power in the game
  • Early Tiers are Cheap.
  • Always pops lead, 4S and 5S Can (Emphasis on Can) pop camo leads.
  • Has some MOAB-class popping power
  • 5S is one of the few towers that does AoE damage to shielded bloons.
  • 5S is also stupidly broken with 5S villages (Why is like every alt broken with 5S villages)

Disadvantages

  • Weak to camo bloons
  • Not all too effective against multiple layers of single bloons.
  • Shield layers are (mostly) immune to explosion damage. This is especially bad for 3S and 4S.

Trivia

  • Explosions from the Bomb Shooter do have a Popping Power limit (amount of bloons it can pop per shot), but it is very, very rare for the PP limit to be reached in normal gameplay.
  • For some reason the Moab Assassin ability can hurt the super bloon
