Glaive Lord ($7650 on Easy, $9000 on Medium, and $9720 on Hard) has two permanent glaives that orbit round the tower, shredding anything that touches them. Glaive Lord can attack Camo Bloons. Glaive Lord is the final upgrade on path 1 for the Boomerang Thrower. It creates 2 glaives that rotate around the tower, and allows it to detect Camo Bloons and pop lead and frozen bloons. This is a good later defense against even LEAD CAMOS and a good tower in Bloons Tower Defense 5.


  • Two Glaive Lords in a good position can defeat a Lead with ease.
  • Glaive Lord's glaives are considered Red Hot, and because this Glaive Lord can pop lead and frozen without any path 2 upgrades.
  • Even if the tower is in the range of a 2/x, or if Call to Arms ability is activated, the rotating glaives will not rotate faster than usual.
  • Even if you do not have Sonic Boom or Red Hot Rangs, Glaive Lord still pops lead and frozen bloons.
