Questions from the comments: 


If bloons are made of bloontonium, how are they destroyed by a bloontonium reactor rather than reinforced?
Every action has an equal or opposite reaction. The Bloontonium Reactor reacts by having the opposite reaction.

Who is SpaceMonkey?
SpaceMonkey is one of our very talented QA members! You may see him around the BTD6 Reddit! 

Will you be bringing BTD 6 over to PS4 and Xbox 1? Is it something you guys have considered or is it just a solid no and most likely won't happen?
It is something we have considered but it isn’t something we will be doing at the moment!

You have mentioned previously that some heroes were related (like Adora and Ezili being sisters (if so who's the big sis ?) Anyway, I came to think about this : Could there be some special interactions/quotes between heroes in Coop mode ? (Depending on the relationships etc..)
It could be very cool to see the relationships between the heroes! The idea will be passed on!

Forget all those tier lists about how powerful they are and how useful they are; how cuddly is every hero, from most to least!?!

  1. Pat (Duh)

  2. Obyn

  3. Churchill 

  4. Quincy 

  5. Gwen

  6. Ben

  7. Ezili (But only with cats)

  8. Adora

  9. Striker

How does Wolfpack Quincy feel after losing on a Beginner map on Hard difficulty? I must know What do I do when he growls on me/ other monkeys?
I wouldn’t worry, he’s all bark, no bite. 

If magic exists in the monkey-verse, why don't the military monkeys make use of magic to fight?
Not all monkeys have the ability to use magic. 

Why does Berserker Brew work on machines?
Why does it work on monkeys? Magic!

If one little thing had changed, if the tiniest of events had gone slightly differently, the bloons would have been the good guys. Doesn't that just keep you up at night?
I think if we thought about all the things that could have been different with a small change, we’d never get any sleep. 

How do you overclock a monkey if they don't have any mechanical parts?
Why does it work on machines? Science!

Gwendolin has a bandage on by her eye. What happened?
Gwen isn’t always so careful with her fire!

If you had to give a number of times you've been asked about if the towers in BTD5 were coming to BTD6, would it be more, less, or about equal to the number of atoms in the universe? Also when is bloonchipper coming?
I’m gonna have to go somewhere around twice as many.
All jokes aside, we really don’t mind answering players' questions about their favourite towers! We know it means you are all just passionate about the game!

There are currently some allegations that Pat Fusty is actually Donkey Kong. Care to comment, NK?
Donkey Kong wishes he was Pat

 

Have a great weekend everyone!
