|~ BTD5 Description|
Semi-Automatic Rifle is the 3rd upgrade of the 2nd path for the Sniper Monkey and it allows the monkey to fire three times as fast. It is most effective when combined with Point Five-Oh, popping up to 21 layers of bloons every three shots, which also makes it three times more effective against M.O.A.B class bloons.
- With Point Five Oh, when this pops a Rainbow Bloon, it will become 8 Red Bloons, and when it pops a Ceramic Bloon it becomes 16 Yellow Bloons.
- Even with Point Five Oh, it does pop 21 bloons in 3 seconds, while Deadly Precision pops 18 bloons in 3 seconds, but Deadly Precision pops an entire Ceramic Bloon, while Semi-Automatic Rifle pops only 7 layers per seconds, spreading the 8 Yellow Bloons.
- Although the upgrade name suggests that the sniper rifle becomes semi-automatic, the monkey still operates the bolt to re chamber.
- Will pop lead bloons even without Full Metal Jacket. (Flash version only)
- It attacks the same speed as the Mortar Monkey's Artillery Battery Upgrade.
