Monkey Meadow BTD6 Hard Mode with No Monkey Knowledge Walkthrough - Basically Average (2024)

Last Updated By Johnny Salib / FlamingGaymer Leave a Comment

One of the things I love the most about playing Bloons TD 6 is the fact that all the maps players have access to are so different, ranging from maps that have multiple entrances, maps with lots of loops, maps that are a straight path and maps that have multiple obstacles, essentially blocking a player’s Towers from having visibility of the track.

While some maps seem to be easier than others, the reality is that players will need a good strategy and ample knowledge of what Towers are effective against what bloons and will need to make decisions on what Towers are most effective based on the structure of the map.

Though all Towers have the capabilities of destroying any bloons, especially when combined with the Monkey Village, the reality is that each map requires a different strategy as the layout of the map is really what defines what Towers should be placed.

As many know, I have a community on Twitch that is very interested in Tower Defense games, though in surveying my community it seems like the consensus is that many feel like BTD6 is a bit too overwhelming, especially due to the fact that players will need a great number of Towers in order to defend the map well.

I do have to agree that there are some times when I feel overwhelmed, especially when I’m trying to farm Insta-Monkeys and choose to go well beyond Round 200 to do so as my screen becomes a chaotic mess of projectiles and my computer inevitably begins to lag, causing the speed-up button to actually slow down the game instead of pick up the speed. Though this is true, the only other overwhelming content for me tends to be when I choose to use No Monkey Knowledge or of course attempt, a C.H.I.M.P.S. map as anyone is going to struggle a bit without the right strategy with no extra help.

So, in order to help my community either become inspired to play BTD6 or retry the game, I’ve been releasing videos of each map on the various Hard Modes to show some strategies I have.

The following guide is specifically for the Hard Mode of Monkey Meadow. This guide does not use any Monkey Knowledge, uses Quincy (the first Hero you have access to) and does not utilize Banana Farms in hopes of preparing players for C.H.I.M.P.S.


While I used Quincy for this play through as he is the most accessible Hero for players, other great options depending on a player’s play style:


Obyn Greenfoot


Pat Futsy







If possible, depending on your Monkey Knowledge and the Hero that you choose, it’s always going to be your best option to place your Hero first.

As Quincy is extremely cheap, players will be able to place him whether or not they have Monkey Knowledge. Players will want to place him somewhere in the center of the map, trying to cover as much of the path as possible. There are no worries if you do not cover absolutely everything as you will be adding an Alchemist later to help improve his range.

The first real Monkey I place is a Dart Monkey. Most players should have a free Dart Monkey and should either place it near Quincy or at the end of the first row. I personally placed it at the end of the first row to see whether or not it would deal more damage when it is on “last” targeting. The answer is no, but it still does a good amount of damage and makes sure that bloons aren’t popped too early (as you’re going to place a Necromancer.) You will be upgrading this Dart Monkey to X-2-4 or higher.

The second Tower I place is a Tack Shooter. I place this in the section that looks like a “]” This ensures that bloons are attacked multiple times before they leak, and will ensure that the Tack Shooter catches anything before bloons begin to completely leak. You’re going to aim to upgrade this to a 2-X-4 or higher.

I place a Wizard Monkey next, placing it on the left-hand side of the first loop so it has the most coverage when it becomes a Necromancer. There’s no rush to upgrade this tower fully at first, but I would recommend that you at least upgrade it to X-2-X early to deal with Lead Bloons (which come around Round 29.) Your goal is to upgrade this to X-2-4.

At this point, you have some time to upgrade all of your Towers as far as possible before Round 40.

Around Round 50 you will want to start thinking of your next Tower. I recommend a 2-X-4 Ninja Monkey. You want to make sure that the Ninja Monkey is close enough to the beginning of the map to place bombs onto the MOABs, but you don’t want to place it in front of the Necromancer as it deals very high damage comparatively and can decrease the amount of Ghost Bloons you spawn.

Now although this isn’t depicted, you have two options for your final upgrades. Either you can push both your Tack Shooter and Dart Monkey to tier 5 or you can place an Alchemist to power up all your Towers. I strongly recommend the latter as it is more substantial, though the option is yours, especially if you’re nervous about leaks.
