Best Tier-5 Upgrades in Bloons TD 6

Tier 5 upgrades are a new addition to the popular BTD6. They are usually very expensive, but mega powerful.

The Top Ten

1 Perma-Spike (Spike Factory)

Is able to obliterate a entire BAD if used correctly.

Good Tower

Even after the nerf, it is still able to destroy an ENTIRE B.A.D. with Monkey Village and Alchemist support.

The tier 5 upgrade of the third path of the spike factory, the Perma-Spike, was the unanimously the most overpowered upgrade in the entire game before update 2.0, when its fire rate was decreased drastically. this upgrade sends out piles of 50 spikes which do 10 damage each. These spikes will carry over 4 rounds, giving it its name. It used to cost 20000, but the price was increased to 25000. - Solacress

2 Archmage (Wizard Monkey)

Overall Powerful, easily cuts through both ZOMGs and MOAB rushes.

The tier 5 upgrade of the first path of the wizard monkey, the Archmage, is known to be one of the most powerful upgrades in the game. It attacks much faster than it's previous upgrade, arcane spike, and its attacks do a whopping 25 damage to M.O.A.B.s and higher. On some tracks, it can even destroy an entire Z.O.M.G, children and all, by itself. That's not bad for a tower that costs 32000. - Solacress

3 Glaive Lord (Boomerang Monkey)

Really strong and cheap

The Tier 5 Upgrade of the first path of the boomerang monkey, the glaive lord, isn't really known to be a bad-ass by most people, but they can pretty much destroy an infinite amount of B.F.Bs. In BTD5, it was kind of overpriced, but not anymore. - Solacress

4 Monkeynomics (Banana Farm)

Glaive = bad


The tier 5 upgrade of the second path of the banana farm, monkeynomics, will give you a lot of money. If you need quick cash in the late game, you can use druids, but if you can afford it, get this. For $100000, you'll get an ability to GIVE you $10000. just use it 10 times, and you've got your money back. sure, you could get a lot of druids, but those take up space. - Solacress

5 Bloon Master (Alchemist)

Easily destroys grouped bloons, even millions of ZOMGs

The tier 5 upgrade of the third path of the alchemist, the Bloon Master Alchemist, can easily turn any bloon up to a B.A.D. into a red bloon. That's right, ANY bloon up to a Z.O.M.G. can be transformed. He's not that slow with it either. - Solacress

6 Preemptive Strike (Monkey Sub)

Destroys every moab and does tons of damage.

Can Destroy BAD alone. Ability wrecks BADs and this can make it so there is no remains of a BAD

Most powerful tower!

The Tier 5 upgrade of the second path of the monkey sub, preemptive strike, is a free ticket to defeating one of the hardest rounds in Impoppable and Chimps modes, round 95. This round has a rush of D.D.T. bloons, but they're no problem for this tower. In earlier free play rounds, the preemptive strike sub will destroy all M.O.A.B. and D.D.T. bloons, no problem. The reason its not higher is due to it's use going down in higher rounds. - Solacress

7 Spirit of the Forest (Druid)

The Tier 5 upgrade of the second path of the druid, the spirit of the forest, does multiple things. It's main use is to do damage to everything on screen several times, being able to destroy pre-round 81 ceramics, but that's not it. It also gives you 25 lives and $1000 every round. Combined with its previous upgrade, jungle's bounty, you'll be making money really quickly. Not bad for a $50000 upgrade. - Solacress

8 Flying Fortress (Monkey Ace)

The tier 5 upgrade for the third path of the monkey ace, the flying fortress of bloon doom as I like to call it, is extremely powerful. It shreads M.O.A.B. class bloons with relative ease, able to do major damage to B.A.D. bloons. Why so low, then? The reason is its price. The flying fortress costs a whopping $120000! More than a temple! My point has been made. - Solacress

9 True Sun God (Super Monkey)

If you want to see how far you can get go for this

Op can obliterate round 100

No need to explain

Vengful temple

10 Primary Expertise (Monkey Village)

The Tier 5 upgrade of the first path of the Monkey Village, primary expertise, isn't really a good upgrade, by its definition. It gives primary monkeys tier 2 upgrades for free. Why not give all monkeys tier 2 upgrades for free? This tower is more than just that, however. It also gains a powerful attack known as "Mega Ballista," which can easily take down M.O.A.B. class bloons. To me, it's worth the 25000. - Solacress

That thing can destroy a whole ZOMG and its children all by itself, for 25 000 only. It should be higher.

The Newcomers

? Total Transformation (Alchemist)
? Plasma Monkey Fan Club (Dart Monkey)

With a lot of other reguler dart towers it just melts all bloons and moab types

The Contenders

11 Permanent Brew (Alchemist)

The tier 5 upgrade for the first path of the alchemist, permanent brew, isn't very useful by itself, since it doesn't give any extra bonus from stronger stimulant, but with the help of a support chinook heli, it can be pretty good. It's a little overpriced in my opinion, though. - Solacress

12 Energizer (Monkey Sub)

Good support tower

The tier 5 upgrade for the first path of the monkey sub, energizer, used to be useless. It gave water based towers in its radius a quicker cooldown. Now, it's amazing, giving EVERY water tower a quicker cooldown, and halvening the cooldown time of water towers in its radius. Not to mention the hero XP bonus. It also gives a pierce buff to its attack. - Solacress

13 Grandmaster Ninja (Ninja Monkey)

The grandmaster ninja with caltrops is insane and can output a lot of damage in a few seconds

This tower with 20 max shinobis, overclock, and other support towers makes the strategy easier. Though, these things I listed may be expensive.

14 The Bloon Solver (Glue Monkey)

Melts through moabs

The bloon solver eliminates moabs instantly. And is strong enough to take down a bfb in a few seconds.

15 SuperMines (Spike Factory)

Can destroy a bad with support

Super mines simply do tons of damage and can destroy literally any bloon.

Super mines can instantly destroy a zomg. Just a single super mine spike ball can do extreme damage to a B.A.D, super mines and perma-spike is able to take down a entire bad in a few seconds. No wonder super mines is so expensive

16 Super Storm (Druid)

It may be expensive but is extremely overpowered, it has a variation of attacks, including druid spikes, lightning shock, ball of lightning, super tornado capable on blowing away MOAB class balloons

17 Legend of the Night (Super Monkey)

Easily destroys wave 95


18 Turbo Boost (Monkey Engineer)

The buff is great


Better that ultra clock good strategy. I don’t have a picture

19 Elite Defender (Sniper Monkey)

Tons of DPS

20 Apache Prime

Good overall

21 Perma Charge (Boomerang Monkey)
22 The Anti-Bloon

Amazing overall melts all bloon types and moabs and bfbs


23 Monkey Wall Street (Banana Farm)
24 Grand Saboteur (Ninja Monkey)
