Asteroid Shield is an ability for the Space Station Passenger in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. When activated, Space Station Passenger protects the whole Space Station with an energy shield. The Asteroid Shield has 125 health, and the Space Station (along with its passengers) can still fire whilst the shield is up.

Connected Space Cadets gain ammo by blocking damage with Asteroid Shield.

Adds 10 rounds to the magazine when blocking damage with Asteroid Shield.



The Asteroid Shield is good for protecting the Space Station. If it starts to lose health, put it up to block attacks. Use it to cover your flanks and rear while the driver of the Space Station is moving. If multiple Space Cadets all use their shield in the same spot, they'll form an impenetrable wall and will be able to deal serious damage.

Do note that if your Asteroid Shield is destroyed, you won't be able to use it for a good while. This makes your Space Station particularly vulnerable. If you start taking serious damage, it may be a good idea to eject from the Station.


The Asteroid Shield is large, so it isn't particularly hard to destroy. Peashooters can go into Pea Gatling to destroy it easily, and Sunflowers can use their Sunbeam. Once the shield is destroyed, you can easily attack the Space Station. However, note that if the Space Station has 3 passengers, you'll likely need to destroy 3 shields to even damage the Space Station itself. If that is the case, you're likely to get vanquished before you deal any real damage. As such, another good method is to be sneaky and get around the Space Station and attack it from behind, where its shields aren't. Watch out for Crater Maker if you do this. Chomper's Grody Goop is an effective counter, and Chomper's Burrow is effective for getting up close undetected. Night Cap's Shadow Sneak and Casting Shadows can be used as an alternative.
