||"Meerkat spy has no attack, but uses his super keen senses to spot Camo Bloons, granting Camo Detection for all towers within his radius."
||— Official BTD5 Description
The Meerkat Spy is a Special Agent costing 60 in Bloons Tower Defense 5. It was released in an update on Jan 13, 2012. It does not attack but instead grants nearby towers the ability to attack Camo Bloons. It has short range and is good for Super Monkeys.
When purchased 50 times, it will be upgraded to the Meerkat Spy Pro , allowing it to attack bloons as well.
- The Pontoon Pro does not grant a range boost to the meerkat spy.
- In Bloons Tower Defense 5 iOS, rather than looking around, it just stays still. It puts on its goggles the moment when (a) Camo Bloon(s) is/are present on the screen.
- The Meerkat Spy gets a blue pair of goggles on Rounds with Camo Bloons, even before they appear.
- This makes it very useful to anticipate rounds with Camo Bloons before they show up.
