Bamboo Shoot is a Super Rare Spawnable Plant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It was first released in the Zomboss Down DLC

It attacks by shooting bamboo shoots, doing massive damage to any zombie approaching. The bamboo shoots rain intensively to a medium area. Each shot deals 15 damage in Garden Warfare, and 8 damage in Garden Warfare 2. Its attack is named Bamboo Shot and was renamed to Bamboo Strike in Garden Warfare 2, as well as being made Super Rare. Its zombie counterpart is Uplink Bot.

It has both a Feastivus variant named the Candy Cane Shoot, and a Springening variant named the Bunnyboo Shoot. Both function identically to the default Bamboo Shoot, and are only available during their respective events in their respective sticker packs.

Stickerbook description

Bamboo Shoot

The Bamboo Shoot shoots bamboo shoots. How many shoots can a Bamboo Shoot shoot?

Candy Cane Shoot

Freshens Zombie bad breath with a powerful peppermint flavor.

Bunnyboo Shoot

Not as tasty, or as sad, as he looks.


The Bamboo Shoot is a very strong plant in damage, but its health is not very high. Planting it near elevated places could be considered a decent idea, as if a zombie goes on that place, the Bamboo Shoot has a high chance of striking there. But it is also risky, as the zombie may spot the Bamboo Shoot, go off the elevated place before the Bamboo Shoot can hurt the zombie, and attack it. Another strategy to protect it is to place Tallnut Battlements and Iron Maidens around it to block off any incoming damage. It also good for attacking ground targets, so plant it near the garden as well, and the Bamboo Shoot will have a high chance of noticing any zombie that goes near the garden and attack it. Keep in mind it needs to recharge and that it has low health, so pay attention to it. The Bamboo Shoot has very good range but because of its health, elevated position or at the back of an area.
