Bloon Types

The main enemy in the Bloons tower defense are the balloons also known as Bloons. In this game, different Bloons have different difficulties but on earlier sequels, a normal bloons can be popped with one hit no matter what color they are. Although they can be popped easily, some bloons are immune on freezing, normal dart, boomerang, and in some cases bombs. 

Bloons are made up of different colors and layers. As the color gets lighter (in some cases) the more layer they have and special upgrades and towers are needed to hit a certain bloon. This is where a good strategy comes in.

On this post, we will discuss the different types of bloons and the level of their appearance so you can determine the toughest up to the easiest type of bloon. You can also make your strategy on your tower defense and make some adjustments through it.

We will discuss the types of bloons in two categories:

  • Original Bloons TD bloons
  • Added Bloons TD bloons
