What is the Upgrade Screen in Bloons TD 6

  1. Upgrades you’ve already bought.
  2. Upgrades that can’t be bought yet.
  3. In-game cost.
  4. Type of Monkey and how much XP it has.
  5. Unlock button and price.
  6. Exit button.

The upgrade screen displays all possible monkeys (Dart Monkey, Super Monkey, Boomerang Monkey, etc.) upgrades. Here, each monkey will have its own unique enhancements.

Unlike in previous versions, Bloons TD 6 allows players to upgrade monkeys in three different upgrade paths. In contrast, older games had only two available.

This is all you have to do; once you’re on the upgrade screen, there’ll be a blue button with a white arrow in the top left corner. Click it, and you’ll close the upgrade screen.

Problems with the Upgrade Screen — why is it so bad?

Since Bloons TD 6’s release date, players have been complaining about the upgrade menu. The overall theme of the complaints consists of:

  • The background not being see-through (can’t see the map while upgrading towers).
  • The upgrade menu takes up too much space on the screen

Interestingly, many critics are mobile users. As their screens are already small enough, so wasting so much of them] seems like a bad idea.
