Tips

  • Can pop camo with all upgrades tier 2 and up.
  • Can pop lead with all stacked upgrades, and the cannons and harpoons from all right upgrades.
  • Can damage HTAs with all stacked upgrades, the swords of the ground troops for all left upgrades, and the bombs and harpoons from all right upgrades.
  • Swashbuckler infantry wield swords, attacking bloons with melee attacks. Place the Buccaneer near the path to use the infantry more effectively.
  • The ability for 5R can't damage shields and ignores non-MOAB-class bloons.
  • The stacked path spawns additional Swashbuckler infantry that use the same projectile as the main tower instead of wielding swords.
  • The minion and "soul" attacks from all stacked upgrades, as well as the main attack from 5S, can penetrate shields.
