Best heroes to use in Bloons TD6

Each hero’s abilities in BTD6 are fairly situational, and as such, it’s best to be aware of when you should be using someone in the play. Here’s a detailed rundown of some of the best heroes that you should use in Bloons TD6 for your in-game strategies.

5. Sauda – The Swordmaster

Sauda is by default an excellent crowd-control hero, however, she comes into her real element with the help of her abilities, Leaping Sword Attack and Sword Charge.

Both of Sauda’s abilities allow her to take down massive waves of Bloons without facing much trouble. On top of this, Sauda can also detect Camo Bloons, making her an extremely efficient hero choice in BTD6.

4. Benjamin – The Code Monkey

Despite being a fairly passive hero in BTD6, Benjamin is capable of earning money and extra lives for you while sitting on his computer. Benjamin’s abilities include Biohack and Syphon Funding, each of which provides indirect perks and benefits to your team.

Benjamin is perfect for strategies that rely heavily on money, as the monkey also generates an additional rate of interest for Monkey Banks.

3. Obyn Greenfoot – The Forest Guardian

Being the last hero in the game who can be unlocked for free, Obyn Greenfoot features excellent synergy with Druids. The hero’s abilities include Brambles and Wall of Trees, making him an essential cornerstone for magic-based defensive strategies.

Obyn’s basic attacks are also capable of penetrating walls, thus making him an ideal choice for various scenarios in the game.

2. Psi – The Psionic Monkey

Despite coming across as an underwhelming hero at the beginning, Psi’s capabilities in BTD6 are undoubtedly one of the strongest in the game. Psi’s abilities are Psychic Blast and Psionic Scream, both of which are extremely useful in taking out swarms of Bloons.

However, Psi becomes absolutely fearsome after hitting level 20 and upgrading their Psionic Scream. Using this ability after Psi hits level 20 will freeze and instantaneously eliminate all enemies on the screen, making him one of the best heroes to pick in Bloons TD6 in the current meta.

1. Etienne – The Drone Operator

Etienne is a tiny little monkey who uses his drones to shoot at incoming Bloons. Like most heroes in the game, Etienne features two abilities, Drone Swarm and UCAV. However, the hero’s main bonuses come from his non-ability level-ups during the course of a match.

Etienne grants special abilities to all towers when he reached level eight. These abilities allow regular towers to detect Camo Bloons. Additionally, Etienne’s UCAV ability becomes permanent at level 20, granting boosts to the summoned unit to pop all types of Bloons whenever activated. Needless to say, Etienne is the best hero currently available in the game and is definitely a huge asset for most in-game strategies.
