The appearance of the Monkey Sub with Advanced Intel

Allows long range targeting of bloons that are in the radius of your other towers.
~ Description from BTD 5 iOS

Advanced Intel is the 2nd upgrade along path 1 for the Monkey Sub. It enables the sub to target all bloons within the radius of any other tower. Advanced Intel effectively gives the sub an almost unlimited range, as it can fire into other towers' radius. It costs $425 on Easy, $500 on Medium, $540 on Hard and $600 on Impoppable.

Advanced Intel RangeEdit

Advanced Intel will only be useful if there is at least one other tower with range covering the track. Advanced Intel will also be able to target Camo Bloons if there is another tower that is able to pop Camo bloons. However, Advanced Intel cannot hit camo bloons itself if no other tower can, and it can only attack camo bloons ONLY if there is at least one other camo-detecting tower whose range covers at least a section of the track.

The following towers will grant extra range for the Advanced Intel.

Tower Camo? (BTD5) Camo? (BTD6) Other notes
Dart Monkey Yes (2+/x) Yes (x/x/2+) Medium-short range that can be expanded with range upgrades. One of the cheapest extra range towers in the game.
Tack Shooter No No Short range. Advanced Intel cannot target camos with Tack Shooter range unless the Tack Shooters are granted camo detection.
Boomerang Thrower Yes (4/x) Yes (5/x/x) Medium range. The Glaive Lord upgrade, which gives the Boomerang Thrower camo detection, is very expensive.
Bomb Tower No No Medium range. Advanced Intel cannot target camos with Bomb Tower range unless the Bomb Towers are granted camo detection.
Ice Tower No No Short range. Despite its abilities being able to freeze camos, they cannot be used as camo detection range for the Advanced Intel.
Glue Gunner No No Large range. Despite its abilities being able to glue camos, they cannot be used as camo detection range for the Advanced Intel.
Sniper Monkey Yes (x/2+) Yes (x/1+/x) Tiny Advanced Intel range, despite the Sniper being able to target anywhere on the screen. Not recommended as an Advanced Intel range.
Monkey Sub Submerged only Submerged only Medium-small range. Other Advanced Intels cannot be used as camo detection range, except if such towers have camo detection themselves, such as with a Radar Scanner. Subs must be submerged to be camo detection range.
Monkey Buccaneer Yes (x/2+) Yes (x/x/2+) Large range. Effective camo detection range.
Monkey Ace Yes (x/2+) Yes (x/2+/x) Tiny Advanced Intel range only around the landing pad, regardless of where the Monkey Ace is flying. Not recommended as an Advanced Intel range.
Heli Pilot Yes (x/2+) Yes (x/2+/x) Tiny Advanced Intel range only around the landing pad, regardless of where the Heli Pilot is flying. Not recommended as an Advanced Intel range.
Wizard Monkey Yes (x/2+) Yes (x/x/2+) Medium-short range.
Ninja Monkey Yes Yes Medium range. Always detects camo.

All towers except the Banana Farm are able to add to Advanced Intel.
