Best Towers In Bloons Tower Defense 5

The Top Ten

1 Super Monkey

Yep a good tower but even in easy, super monkey still can't take down moabs super fast

Super Monkey... Sorry. I got mesmerized for a second there. Some people say monkey apprentice is better... COME ON! Is it because it is cheaper!? This is a list for BEST towers, not mediocre towers that are cheap. So what is temple costs 100,000? Save up! Come on. Lets put this #1 on the list. VOTE SUPER MONKEY!

I don't know what nutcase would vote otherwise than this expensive but extremely powerful tower. It's right side upgrades storm through bloons and MOAB-classes alike, and the left side upgrades, when the right towers are sacrificed, dominate the map with plasma ripping through rounds of ZOMGs and glue, blades, tornadoes and missiles hailing on the unfortunate bloons left behind to be melted by this insanely powerful monkey. There is no tower that unleashes hell just like the Super Monkey does.

This tower is probably the most used tower I've ever played with Once I used just a few other towers which all of them were in the range of a monkey village. I just put those towers and a bunch of technological terrors and almost fully maxed Sun god temple. All that on brick wall kept the bloons at the beginning with continuous ZOMG's coming at me on round 108. Oh yeah, I did have about 4 Cripple Moab snipers but you should have seen the power the super monkeys were doing. And that's why I think super monkeys are #1.

2 Banana Farm

Banana farm is a little pricy but I voted for it cause I use reasearch facility and 6 of these give you basicly infinite money it should be I top tower but the only problem with it is the fact that it produces money slowly

Essential especially at later games when you barely make any money out of bloons.

This tower is clearly the best as it provides additional income, allowing you to quickly upgrade your offensive towers to better deal with the bloons as well as providing the wherewithal to get enough towers to defeat the bloons. Without banana farms your income is not high enough to allow for you to get the best bloons. Personally I prefer to use the banks as it allows you to focus more on the bloons, but I accept that the other option is probably superior in terms of money making.

I like to play on 3 times around with 8 banana farms on the large right side then I put a monkey town in the center and put a fire apprentice and other towers where they come and you put a monkey farmer inside of the square of 8 and you rack up the cash so fast it ridiculous

3 Dart Monkey

Triple darts and super monkey fan club. That's all I have to say.

One of the best cost-performance ratio. It begins to lack the firepower required for late-game rounds, but these are sufficient enough to carry you until you can get better towers.

Why is this 16 on the list! Definitely the best tower. Just spam 2-3 Dart Monkeys (especially with the specialty building with exploding darts! ) maybe some juggernauts, and you have the game won!

Best cost to performance ratio in the game, get a village and add one more onto their popping power and have one tower to deal with leads, you can ride the entire game with just these guys, and I've done so.

4 Ninja Monkey

Absolute best monkey tower. There is only one thing this monkey can't do, and that is pop lead balloons. Just on of these, 3/2, can get you all the way to around round 25. 4/2 is best, and because it can't pop lead, it isn't the only tower that matters...

Pair it with a 2/2 monkey apprentice, and you can beat Easy no problem, and most of the other modes.

Good popping power with 4/2, x/3 stuns area bloons and pops lead, good for area control. The Sabotage Supply Lines is one of THE best abilities it's cheap and slows all MOAB-class bloons so your towers have more time to damage them. And on top of that the Ninja can see camo, overall one of the best towers- way better than the apprentice, which is negative utility.

Ninja monkey is the best tower to beat beginner and intermediate maps on hard. all you need is at least 10 ninjas upgraded to 4/2 by round 50 with a 2/2 apprentice at the very beginning to pop those leads. To get ultimate popping power you can even get the monkey village upgraded to 2/3 and sell the apprentice. As you go along just keep getting those 4/2 ninjas and as long as you have 22 ninjas by round 85, you will WIN!

This tower was from the beginning of the game and you start with a awesome start to your reign of terror over the balloons and the balloon-jujitsu is overpowered as if you get the 0-3 monkey village

5 Monkey Apprentice

In my opinion, both paths are great! Use them correctly together and they can make a great team for many rounds to come. Though first, upgrade both paths to the 3rd tier, and that's when the real game begins. Dragon's Breath is DEVASTATING, being able to take simple red bloon rushes to those annoying player sent ceramic rushes. Make Dragon's Breath Apprentice even MORE devastating by teaming it up with the Summon Whirlwind Apprentice. If some of those sneaky bloons get past the fiery doom of Dragon's Breath send them back to the flames of hell with a powerful whirlwind. The Summon Phoenix and Tempest Tornado upgrades are great too! The powerful phoenix of the Summon Phoenix upgrade can fly around the map burning ceramic, zebra or rainbow rushes (plus more! ) using his/her powerful flames out of his/her mouth (plus the phoenix looks so ' cool! ). The Tempest Tornado hurls out an even MORE devastating tornado to those sneaky bloons who either sneaked out of the flames of hell or the ...more

Amazing at getting stragglers and popping lead. Paired with a Ninja Monkey, you can't be beat.

Apprentice is good before moabs come but 4/2 and 2/4 are op together

Price! low a for All! Phoenix breath+ dragons and AWESOME That's! $0021 for lightning mean, I game. the in best the far by is wizard The

6 Monkey Bucaneer

With a fully upgraded pirate cove this is the only tower in the game that can pop lead camo at 0/0. If one of these rolls for me on a daily challenge of any difficulty I will do it with ease. By far my most used and favourite tower. Every special mission that can use these bad boys, even "No Escape" becomes child's play with them. The "Fast Upgrades" special mission can be done in ~2 minutes with the 0/4 version of these towers and a glue gunner. The cost and power of these towers, coupled with the cove giving them the ability to grant detection of camo to all other towers has provided this game with an extremely effective tower anywhere there is water.

I love these towers, the sub boat combo is op. Once you have an aircraft carrier, you vaporize balloons

OP and cheap. Path 1 is OP. Path 2 is OP

Its awesome a 3-2 path in TD its simply amazing

7 Bomb Tower

When you don't want to use a monkey apprentice, use a bomb tower. Spectacular popping power, but can't shoot camo lead. That is why you use monkey Apprentices instead.

This can destroy lead which can get you past 59 lmao this should me 1st because it is required to get past a level

Bomb towers suck against zebras and blacks unless you have 25 frag bomb towers.

Really good for early game, just destroys packs of bloons. Can't detect camo so I usually pair it up with M.I.B

8 Spike Factory

Perfect for the end of the stage, or at a loop. These make an infinite amount of spikes, and stop anything that gets in your way. These REALLY excel at the spiky ball route, 3/0. They are good with both, but the spiky ball one is where it is at.

Spike storm is a good ability if used correctly people underestimate it (the tower overall) cause road spikes but $25 a stack you get that back easily and quickly

Super op at the back the longer they have to build up spikes the more they come in clutch as a last line of defense

Quick safety.
Though expensive, they can mow down any MOAB type.

9 Monkey Ace

No doubt Monkey Ace is the best in the game. Spectre will SHRED any type of balloon or blimp for a good price. Just get one or two of these and you are good to go through round 85!

Spectre is the best because it is MUCH cheaper than Temple of the Monkey God and you don't lose towers buying it.

This is great with spectre and buy-sell ground zero. Meh for everything else. - randomtoptenuser

Spectre is overpowered. Got past 10 levels without balloons even getting no my screen lol.

10 Monkey Sub

Can keep in the back and neutralizes tower seen by the frontline.

As of BTD5 this was a great tower, max abilities at level 19. I personally refer to them as water dart monkeys. They start out with homing darts, and can eventually get all vision, and it gets camo detection if it is in vision with a camo detection tower. In BTD6 I use it because it gets round 5 no issue, gets lead popping,
fast and shoots fast. Submerge and support is good when you Upgrade to Bloontonium reactor or energizer. It can destoy BADs with the middle path, and Helpes other subs with the middle path.

Could easily be the best tower due to the fact that Advanced Intel just completely rips up the screen. Its like a sniper but with homing, super fast reloading and explosive abilities. Also dead cheap compared to others

Advanced Intel can make your subscription shoot anywhere on the screen (if there areally other towers) and once you have rockets, this thing is op

The Newcomers

? Aircraft

The Contenders

11 Boomerang Thrower

This is a really nice tower with full Boomerang Dojo upgrades (cheaper, faster, boomerangs fly around 2 times, throws 2 at once) it is basically as good as a super monkey with low upgrades and monkey village 2,2 makes it better than a super monkey* as long as it has the speciality building. If you use this tower right, you are a legend. *super monkey is pretty awesome too ( honourable mentions go to - apprentice, ace, engineer, sub, sniper and finally farm )

One of my favorite towers in the game if you know how to use them

One thing I can say... 2/4 Boomerang Throwers + MIB Call To Arms + Radar = INSANE STRONG DEFENSE

Excellent with the Boomerang Dojo, were he throws two boomerangs. Only weakness is no camo detection.

12 Bloonchipper

After destroying a big blue, red, or green balloon these machines are able to take out all the balloons that burst out of the bigger balloon. No doubt about it top 5.

Having a chipper is amazing in the bloons games. You can stall the things, which gives you more time to pop all of the bloons.

Should be in top five cause it can stop bloons from advancing while shredding them up.

Having a bunch of these buys you a lot of time, should be higher on the list

13 Monkey Engineer

It's final upgrade captures balloons and turns them to cash. How can you not have it?

People say that the super monkey deserves #1 because of its strength. However this is a list for the best. Don't get me wrong super monkey and apprentice money are good. But monkey engineer is like have ing multiple towers at once And is cheap. When your saving up for the super monkey to help out who you think is pulling the weight.

This should definitely be #1. Once you upgrade the engineers workshop in the specialist buildings all the way up to get the red sentry guns, all you'll need is a monkey village to detect camos. Also, they are dirt cheap, so you will have hundreds of sentry guns before you get to the harder rounds.

This is by far my favorite tower. I believe it is by far the strongest tower (besides the super monkey) because of all its powerful turrets. It becomes very easy to beat any level when you get 10 or more monkey engineers.

14 Tack Shooter

Not the best tower but blade storm is good ring of fire bad late game sucks agenst camo

Just good against non camo bloons

Ring of Fire is OP

The fire path is good

15 Dartling Gun

Is this even a question?! The Dartling monkey is so versatile, fast, and powerful it can be used to solo run easy mode with support from a dart monkey for 5 turns. At 2-2 it can pop all bloons including leads. Although the ability to control them can be a pestilence at times the micro-management can save you at times. Keep in mind that there is a tower that allows you to lock their attacks. The 4th tier upgrades are some of the best despite their heavy price. You can solo run with a group of ray of dooms. Easily the best towers in the game (unlimited range by the way).

In all honesty, the Dartling Gun should be higher than #4. All though its first few upgrades make it more accurate and powerful, its 2-2 setting is great at tearing through bloons of all types. If a MOAB comes your way and you Apprentices and Ninja Monkeys can't keep up, YOU have the power to decide its fate with the Dartling Gun. Never rely on short ranges with the Dartling gun, because wherever you want it to shoot, it will! If BFBs ruin the party, the 3-2 and 2-3 Dartling guns will help out immensely. If and when the mighty ZOMGs come calling, just pop in a couple of 4-2 Dartling guns, and nothing will get past. Plus, the 2-4 Dartling gun can easily deal with Ceramic rushes. All in all, this tower, if used correctly, is one of the deadliest towers of all time.

Definitely the best camo defense, way better than the ninja tower. I like to get the ray of doom upgrade and it is just ANNIHILATION. If it is strategically placed in a horizontal location and the beam is in line, it will incinerate all blimps. Good for mid to late game.

A great go to. Able to rip through packs of balloons, as well as the ability to pop camo. It rivals the power of the apache, and a hoard of them can rival the technological terror.

16 Sniper Monkey

This is a good tower because 3 things 1 unlimited range 2 stops moabs 3 supply drop is great (but a long cooldown)

Supply drop is overpowered, tier 3 for both towers is good, great late game support. why only 16? - randomtoptenuser

When you have it targeting strong, it can quickly pick off large targets in crowds that might otherwise cause trouble later on down the path. Even better on longer paths as it's range is everywhere. One 2/3 sniper can mean you don't even see any bloons some early-mid rounds and 4/2 can stop MOABs in their tracks. Great when combined with Apprentice monkeys or supers for the wave clear.

If it's used with the right towers it's the best tower.

17 Heli Pilot

Reasonable prices for powerful upgrades (Both fourth tier upgrades, I prefer the apache) (similar to the monkey sub, however it can also be used on land). Tracking the bloons automatically makes it better than the dartling gun (in my opinion, some prefer to target very different sections of bloons rapidly, or hold a single spot with the dartling guns devastating power). One disadvantage I see however is that you need the paid version for the tower, sad not having it anymore.

The apache airship is just insane! On round 60 Just one is enough to keep the balloons at the start. It's a bit expensive but definitely worth it. And the fact that it tracks the balloons makes it one of the best towers. With the Enhanced IFR Instruments It can pop any balloons. The Support Chinook Is also amazing with the two abilities. On a high round when you want Temples Of the Monkey Gods but don't want them to sacrifice all your towers, you can move them away. The other ability can get you more health, and tons of money. More health can save you so many times. Once I replaced my Technological Terrors with Apache Airships on round 200 and they annihilated the ZOMG's

This tower is easily better than the ninja, engineer, and possible the apprentice. You can buy 3 or 4 of these for the cost of temple and they fire faster than any other tower. It deserves higher than rank 10. Sure you need to have the Apache upgrade for it to be phenomenal but it is still a pretty decent tower without it. I would have thought it was gonna be higher than rank 10 but everyone has their own opinions.

Only reason this is so low is because it isn’t on the pc version

18 Temple of the Monkey God

OP just find the Dark Secret and is OP

A sun god army is cheaper and more powerful. It would be great if it did not sacrifice towers or cost so much. 1 of these is more powerful than 1 sun god, but multiple sun gods are better, but for the same price.

Its truly the most powerful tower according to popping power!

It's powerful than Sun God in a good way.

19 Monkey Village

I thought this was useless when I started playing but I used it more and more ad it is used every time I play now

To me it is the best because when taking left side all the way through you have a plasma monkey that can see camo and it still generates boosting effects on fellow towers in it's radius. Also the right side can turn your super monkey into a lead-popping beast because of the Monkey Intelligence Bureau and if you get the final upgrade it can turn into a last second lifesaver.

This makes every towe infinitley better anybody who votes supermonkey is getting destroyed by a RED camo balloon not to mention it has pretty decent popping power if you choose that route (which barley anybody does) because the other side make any tower next to it almost BETTER then 1 temple

I'm sorry is there another support tower

20 0-0 Dart Monkey

Using the 0-0 dart monkey mine as well be considered cheating from how open it is.

I mean, this is the best of the best

I used just this and I got to round 137

Idiots dart monkey is 7th on the list

21 Mortar Tower

With the mortar specialist tower it becomes one of the most powerful towers. A self aiming cannon on steroids with unlimited range that either shoots super fast and reveals camp or shoots huge explosions that take off 3 layers at a time! What more could you ask for?

To me this is one of the worst because it can only attack in one specific spot and even though it does reveal camo with signal flares it wont hit them all with it's incredibly slow attacks. Also none of the upgrades deal massive damage to moabs.

The Big One annihilates rainbows. - Vortexium

Bad SUCKS. My opinion

22 Wizard Lord

These Guys Are Amazing!

All round beast

Lololololol its not even a tower

23 Bloonjitsu Master

I like how it shoots out 5 shurikens.

NOT A TOWER - randomtoptenuser

24 Temple of The Vengeful Monkey

It is a Temple with 30% more power

NOT A TOWER - randomtoptenuser

25 Ice Monkey

Ice shards=chain reaction

Upgrade it to ice shard or viral frost and you one good player against normal non moab bloons. They can defeat a moab if the map is very long

26 Cobra

It can give you extra health. best ever! 1

27 Super Monkey Temple
28 Glaive Lord

This tower is the best!

Just really OP tower

NOT A TOWER - randomtoptenuser

awesome

29 Moab Mauler

NOT A TOWER - randomtoptenuser

30 Ray Of Doom

Ray of doom is insanely op in my opinion it is like a temple you can control and 12 of these I was able to go to round 495 with 12 of these towers and never lost 1 live until I got bored but my go to tower

I love it and it should be in number one because if you have so many you can destroy anything

It's the best one

Why this is here, this is an upgrade! - randomtoptenuser

31 Destroyer
32 Camo Red Balloon Popper

Just for popping camo red balloons essential to any game...

Not even a tower - BloonsPlayer

Is best

33 Darts

If you had no darts, most of the towers would not exist. And original bloons would not exist.

No darts, No game

No darts=very sucky game

34 Cannon Ship

The special for this tower is so good

35 Techno Terror

Seriously, the BEST idea ever is to upgrade super monkeys to THESE GUYS so they can do some damage, blast ZOMG's to pieces, make BFB's not exist, destroy MOAB's super fast, and any other bloon (not boss bloons, D.D.T and up) stands no chance against the infinite power. VOTE TECHNO TERROR!

36 Spike-O-Pult

This thing is

OP 3-0 Dart Monkey

Not a tower - BloonsPlayer

37 Glue Gunner

Max glue gunner is extremely good

It is good in later upgrades

When these are maxed out to splatter absolutely everything it makes it silly easy to take down everything up to a moab.

But absolute no damage against MOABs

38 Ice Tower

It's totally not a bad tower. The ice tower is terrible with ice shards and Absolute Zero, but the Arctic Wind ice tower is super cool and underrated. Pair the arctic wind with a Ring of Fire, and watch the near infinite bloon slowing and popping power

The ice tower is the "coolest" troop ever it the best

It is bad
