Weapon upgrades

ArmorChomperUpgrade

Description about the Armor Chomper's weapon upgrades

Emptied Pockets

Emptying out his pockets has lightened the load, and allows him to move faster.

Iron Stomach

Zombies cause indigestion! Having iron stomach-plating makes the agony pass a little quicker.

Balanced Breakfast

Now that he eats a balanced breakfast every morning, he is feeling healthier than ever.

Strategies

Despite Armor Chomper's extremely high health, it is possible for him to be overwhelmed due to his low movement speed, which is why the Burrow is crucial to the Armor Chomper's survival along with the speed upgrade. When playing as Armor Chomper, always stick close to teammates near objectives. By doing this, the player can successfully halt objectives with his high health, tank damage from enemies, and keep his health up. Though optional, it might be useful to hold the Super Sticky Goop for the extra second could mean your life.

Armor Chomper excels in the Gnome Bomb due to his tanking ability while carrying and defusing objectives even though having a side-effect for being slow.

If the player ever wanted to kill for increased bounty it is best to equip Sprint Burrow and Cheesy Goop ability especially when you directly hit a zombie with the goop which can deal up a total of 25 damage. This will lead you killing any zombies with 125 health with just two Metal Chomps and that is why a Sprint Burrow is equipped because if you choose to swallow, it is a lowly decision except when having a low health.

Trivia

  • Only his teeth, gums and tongue are not made of metal.
  • Even if the "Emptied Pockets" upgrade is unlocked, he is still the slowest playable character having the speed of a normal Chomper without a speed upgrade.
  • He is one of the five Chomper variants whose stem and leaves have different colors, the others being Count Chompula, Hot Rod Chomper, Chester Chomper, and Chomp Thing.
  • Even though he moves slower than the other Chompers, Burrow will still allow him to move at the same speed as a normal Chomper.
  • His weapon, Metal Chomp, deals twice the damage of a standard chomp from the front (50 damage per bite instead of 25) and chomps a little faster than half rate, resulting in it being more damaging.
