Bloons TD 6: The Sniper Monkey Can Take Out MOABs Effectively Now Thanks to Recent Buff

Update v37.0 Ninja Kiwi

MOAB-class bloons in Bloons TD 6 are quite challenging to defeat. They are tanky, do lots of damage, and get increasingly difficult to deal with as the game progresses. Well, the developers made an interesting change in the recently released Update v37.0 where they buffed a certain tower so much that it's likely a must-have now when dealing with MOABs. The tower in question is the Sniper Monkey, specifically its 5xx upgrade.

For the uninitiated, the Sniper Monkey's 5xx upgrade called Cripple MOAB immobilizes MOAB-class bloons and causes them to take extra damage from all other attacks. It used to deal only a measly 80 direct damage to MOABs, but now, it is 280!

According to the dev team, the Sniper Monkey is such a slow-attacking tower that they felt it needed more oomph to make every shot count. With the recent buff to Cripple MOAB, the Sniper Monkey can peel off the tough external layers of regular MOABs with a single shot until round 100.
