Strategies

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.
