This guide will teach you how to use benjamin in Bloons TD 6 games.
Why is this guide a thing?
Everyone who has used benjamin might have noticed that you get a lot of early game cash, but later in the game, it seems harder to afford stuff. ever wondered why? level 7. bloon trojan. this as well as ben’s second ability, syphon funding, have been the cause of a ton of lost money.
So i decided to make this guide to show ways that i have either worked around his flaws, or done something else entirely.
Thing number 1.
i feel you, so heres an idea.
when he hits level seven, start to spam some banks. the bank buff from benjamin should help you recover some lost money from the bloon trojan
okay, but what if you dont wanna use banks?
3-2-0 farms. like 8 of them. all around a farmer. that’ll do it
lol for real though, you technically can use a 0-3-2 bank, as wierd as it is. they will automatically collect when they get full, so you dont have to worry about them. the bank buff would help a ton with 0-3-2 banks, because they dont get as much money per round. but it is fun to use crosspaths that you wouldnt normally use.
As for when he gets to level 10, don’t use the ability.
further beyond level 10, get more farms or income generators, because he will end up buffing bloon trojan a lot, so you will need to compensate for it.
I know it seems like a lot, so…
tl/dr: if you wanna get money but not have to worry about it, spam 0-3-2 banks. spam more of them, then more.
if you wanna get the most amount of money, its like farming normally, you just need to get banks more.
Thing number 2.
well imagine if you didnt have to deal with that.
so you sell him at level 7,its weird, i know. selling your hero is weird.
check his level every few rounds, sell him if hes at level 7 or higher
it makes more sense once you get started
you wont really have to use farms that much, so i really like this strategy.
1. he is a hero, so you wont be able to use obyn or any other heroes.
2. he takes a lot of micro if you use the second method
3. he takes a ton of compensation if you use the first method
4. his first ability can leave you very vulnerable at times
5. why not use obyn? what does ben have over obyn?
6. farms are better, in every way imaginable.
Do you want a hard game? do you want a boring game that forces you to use meta towers with no room to do anything wrong? do you want to be required to have perfect micro? use ben.
Benjamin makes everything difficult. and when i say everything, i mean EVERYTHING. chimps mode, half cash, magic only, military only, primary only, deflation, reverse, normal, apopalypse, ABR, impoppable, and especially chimps. he is sooo underpowered that it makes me question why he was put in the game.
So in conclusion, dont use ben. he needs to be buffed. and when i say buffed, i mean… reworked.
