Bloons Tower Defense X Wiki

Overview

With the highest single-target popping power in the game, Sniper Monkeys start with powerful infinite ranged shots that pop 3 layers. However, its low pierce makes it surprisingly weak against groups of bloons. Costs $420.

This tower automatically targets the strongest bloon on the map.

Tips

  • Can pop lead from tier 1 and up, and camo lead from tier 2 and up.
  • Can damage HTAs with 4L, 5L, 4S, 5S, and any middle path.
  • Shielded MOABs (except the LPZ) are immune to the stun from 5M.
    • In addition to the stun, 5M deals massively increased damage (approximately 75).
  • 5S has two separate attacks, an explosive attack and a railgun. The railgun penetrates infinitely, even through shields, and will pop at least a brick in one shot. Unfortunately, the explosive attack only pops 5 layers, meaning that against swarms of high-tier bloons and/or MOABs it will cause them to split and spread out, drastically reducing the effectiveness of the railgun.
