Bloons TD Battles 2: Rounds 14 to 21 Now More Challenging in Update 1.9

Update 1.9 for Bloons TD Battles 2 brought some pretty interesting changes. For those who think the game is easy, especially in the earlier rounds, Ninja Kiwi has made adjustments to ensure that it gets increasingly difficult starting Round 14.

In Round 14, players must be ready to battle 14 lead bloons instead of six. At Round 17, 160 yellow bloons will swarm the map, with the round duration reduced from 36 seconds to 27 seconds.

Things get a lot more challenging at Round 19. That’s because players will have to worry about 25 lead bloons, 20 zebra bloons, and 12 ceramic bloons in this round. The duration is still set at 25 seconds, but will players have enough time to beat them all?

And lastly, players will have to pop 20 camo rainbow bloons and 30 rainbow bloons. To defeat these bloons easier, players must be prepared with a Ninja Monkey and Sniper Monkey.

To help players get enough money to set up towers in the early to mid-game, the Banana Farm’s IMF Loan upgrade has been buffed in Bloons TD Battles 2 Update 1.9. The initial cooldown for the IMF Loan has been lowered from 30 to 20 seconds, allowing players to obtain the first two loans more quickly and with less downtime than before.
