There has never been a better time to join the Bloons TD 6 squad, which is why we bring you our BTD6 hero tier list. The article will cover the best and the worst heroes you can play in the game, and the ranking will, of course, be quite subjective, so keep that in mind when traversing through the contents of this list. However, the heroes are ranked on a plethora of different attributes to ensure we keep it as unbiased as possible.
The main attributes used for rankings are the hero’s abilities and strengths. The difficulty of each hero also plays a vital role, which is why it will be matched with the average player’s performance. Besides that, popularity and meta play a part in deciding between heroes of similar attributes. Let’s get started.
- There are 14 entries on our list.
- Each hero is ranked on their overall performance in the game, including difficulty and abilities.
- Among the highest-ranked heroes are Obyn Greenfoot, Captain Churchill, Adora, Benjamin, and Sauda.
- The lowest tiers contain characters like Geraldo, Striker Jones, Ezili, Quincy, and Admiral Brickell.
Before we dive into the main content of the list, the table below will give you a quick summary of the heroes and their respective rankings.
|S Rank||A Rank||B Rank||C Rank||D Rank|
|Obyn Greenfoot||Pat Fusty||Gwendolin||Striker Jones||Quincy|
|Captain Churchill||Sauda||Geraldo||Ezili||Admiral Brickell|
They will be discussed briefly in the content following the table.
The first tier of our BTD6 Tier List is the S Rank. As most of you already know, the S tier caters to the best of the best. This rank will discuss the best heroes you can opt for right now. They give exceptional overall performance and come at a relatively low price, making them the ideal counter to most Bloons you may encounter. They are listed as follows.
First up in the S tier is Obyn Greenfoot. Greenfoot uses nature’s power and decimates any foes standing in his way. He is an exceptional Hero with high power abilities and excellent clearing power. Additionally, the power is found useful in many different scenarios in the game, which is why he is one of the most popular heroes in the game right now. However, If his attack does not seem sufficient, he also offers a lot of defensive maneuvers ensuring that you can easily prepare for an attack.
|Attack Speed||Every 1.35 sec|
Next on our list we have is Captain Churchill, who is a serious powerhouse on the battlefield. He is one of the best heroes when it comes to defense. The hero has a unique ability called the MOAB barrage at level 10, which can easily destroy many of his foes. Captain Churchill certainly takes the cake when it comes to tanks because of his destructive yet immovable presence in the game.
|Attack Speed||0.7-0.3 sec|
Benjamin is known for generating extra money for the cause. His hacking skills are extraordinary and can help you destroy all those bloons trying to enter your area. He is an incredible hero, best for competitive play and unlocking new levels. His unique ability is known as Syphon Funding which is unlocked at level 10. That will not only help you destroy most of the obstacles through a single rank but also increase the amount of cash you will receive by popping them through the way.
He is also quite unique compared to some of the other monkeys we will look at in our article. His abilities make sure that you always have enough buck for the bang. Lastly, the higher level you go with Benjamin, the better the yield and his power get, so try to get level 100 as soon as you can.

Adora is the last S-tier hero of ours that can smash the bloons with her powerful abilities. She uses the power of light to erase her enemies from existence. When it comes to damage, nobody can beat her, as she is known for popping the lead bloons with little to no effort. Furthermore, she has auto-targeting magic bolts, which only get better with each level. Adora is quite exp hungry, but towards the end of the game, she becomes an unstoppable force.
|Attack Speed||1-0-0.6 sec|
A-tier heroes carry brilliant abilities that make them stand apart from their competitors. They are unbeatable and furious; however, with little changes, they can excel high and reach our S-tier. Their powers are not limited, and each has something exceptional to offer. All in all, they are outperformed by the S tier, but if you can’t select any of those yet, these make for an awesome backup pick.
Bloons TD 6 is all about being strategic, and you will only win if you have the right mindset throughout the game. It is not just about playing or winning a few rounds; the game becomes increasingly critical with each passing round. Having said that, Pat Fusty is what you need to have on your list of heroes, as he is exceptional at all game levels and will not disappoint you. He is strong enough to get hold of several waves simultaneously. As the level ends, Fusty is an essential support tower for its fellow monkeys.
The only reason for adding him to our A-tier is that Fusty is not suitable for the maps that need to be grouped during levels of high waves. He needs powerful towers around him in the last phase as he becomes a superhero.
|Attack Speed||Every 1.1 sec|
Sauda is another incredible and powerful hero on our Bloons TD 6 Tier List. She is an amazing unit with high pierce, fast attack speed, and built-in camo detection. She carries twin-razor sharp swords that are enough to carve the bloons up. In the late game, her sword charge ability shows up as her best ability, as it helps her to counter chaotic moments with no trouble at all. However, if her sword charge ability could upgrade, it would have been more impressive and powerful. Sauda’s range is also somewhat limited, and that, in turn, makes her dependent on the map.
|Attack Speed||0.4-0.1 sec|
Etienne is one of the tiniest monkeys on our list. He is equipped with drones that can shoot at any incoming bloons. He comes with two abilities, the Drone Swarm and the UCAV. However, these are all but a part of him, as his main power generates from his non-ability level-ups. At level eight, the monkey gets an upgrade that lets him transfer special abilities to all his fellow towers. Additionally, her UCAV ability will become permanent at a later stage in the game, allowing you to immediately pop any unfriendly Bloons.
|Attack Speed||07-0.55 sec|
PSI is the final A-tier hero we will look at and one of the most ruthless heroes when it comes to competitive plays. He is ranked as one of the game’s strongest and most favorite monkeys. His abilities include psychic blast and psionic scream, which easily decimate most Bloons. The only reason why he is in our A-tier is the relatively late power spike he gets from his Psionic Scream upgrade at level 20.
|Attack Speed||1-0.85 sec|
In the B rank of our BTD6 Hero Tier List, we will look at some of the heroes who are quite average. They are not too special but not too bad either. This makes them a viable pick but still far from ideal. They do possess a few skills which allow them to excel in certain areas but not generally. All in all, you can win with these but not nearly with as much ease compared to the upper-tier heroes. They are listed as follows.
When Bloon players hear the name Gwendolin, the first thing they think of is fire, lots of fire! His motto is to incinerate everything in his path and walk away with the win. As fun as that would be, it is not the case because his abilities are sometimes underwhelming in terms of damage. He does offer a lot of AoE attacks which are excellent moves for fast-clearing hordes of enemies. He is a viable pick if you are a fan of fire but be prepared to do a lot more than scorching if you want to win.
|Attack Speed||0.5-0.15 sec|
Geraldo is more like a shopkeeper that has a number of different features to offer. These can sometimes be overwhelming for players as Geraldo is a Jack of all trades and master of none. Playing with him is definitely quite challenging if you don’t know what his skills are and when is the best time to use them. As for a master, winning with him is close to ideal because of his versatile play style.
|Attack Speed||Every 1.1s|
The C tier will cater to some of the heroes that are nowhere near the best but possess some traits that keep them from being among the D-tier heroes. It is possible to win with them, but it is extremely unlikely because of how difficult it is to use these heroes. Additionally, they are known to be quite weak in most scenarios which is why they are also quite unpopular among players. Let’s take a look at who these heroes are.
Since C-tier consists of below-average heroes, we are here with Striker Jones. He has nothing best to offer except a few party tricks. After reading our review about him, you will not be left with any reason to use him. Firstly, you cannot rely on his buffs because they are dull and extremely weak. However, he can only do well with flammable towers, but still, the spells are not that great. Compared with other game heroes, his bonus range is relatively low, around 5%. Secondly, the only ability that saves him from falling into our D-tier is “Concussive Shell,” which shocks Bloons for a little while. All in all, he is quite underwhelming compared to the higher-tier heroes.
|Attack Speed||1.2-0.2 sec|
Ezili is the latest addition to the Bloons Tower Defense 6 heroes team. However, you cannot rely much on her commands as she has no prime powers that would make you turn your head. She can infect an enemy and pop a layer of it before it runs out. She is only good early on because her damage is quite good against weaker opponents, but she increasingly becomes weaker as the game progresses.
|Attack Speed||1.2-0.8 sec|
D-tier heroes are known to be the worst among all, and they do not have any quality that could save them. These characters are wholly ineffective and need a lot of headway. In contrast to the above tiers, their abilities and powers are almost insignificant. Having said that, try not to get your hands on this one because the D-tier units are not going to let you win. They are more often than not a liability than a perk in most games.
Quincy is the first hero in the D tier of the BTD6 Hero Tier List. Additionally, she is unanimously agreed upon as the weakest hero among them all. She is quite versatile, but she is not strong in any one of the many skills she has access to. Furthermore, her damage is insignificant, making it impossible to win when playing with her. However, her early game is relatively decent but not nearly as strong as some of the other Monkeys. All in all, you can play her if you like her, but chances are you’re not going to have a fun time.
|Attack Speed||0.95-0.2 sec|
Admiral Brickell is the last hero we will look at. Ironically, she is the first water-based hero that was introduced in Btd6. She is definitely not the worst champion, but she is quite weak. Brickell’s overall performance is not good enough to be placed in the C tier, which is why she is in the D tier with Quincy. Her abilities are single-target and quite weak when it comes to damage. That makes her an extremely difficult character to win with. All in all, she is a champion, mostly by her fans, and not often used by players focused on winning.
|Attack Speed||0.8-0.4 sec|
