Berry Shooter is a variant of Peashooter in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. He was released for free along with the Tactical Taco Party DLC Pack in sponsorship with Aquafina FlavorSplash. He can be unlocked by opening his pack in the Sticker Shop.

Chili Bean Bomb
|The Zombies often confuse the Chili Bean with Brainz, racing to eat it. It has a short fuse and deals massive damage to all nearby Zombies.|
Sombrero Bean Bomb
|Nothing says "hot" like a Chili Bean wearing a sombrero! The fuse is quite long, but the damage is mighty impressive. Timing is the key with this fun friend.|
|The Peashooter can dig into the ground and root himself in place, turning himself into a Pea Gatling. He can deal more damage, but is vulnerable to attack.|
|Retro Pea Gatling uses the ancient Peashooter techniques of manually cranking out peas. Although it has a slower rate of fire, the peas are ancient and far more damaging.|
|When a Peashooter uses his Hyper ability, he will not only run incredibly fast, but can also jump extremely high.|
Super Pea Jump
|The Super Pea Jump allows the Peashooter to get atop places he was unable to reach before, but at the tradeoff of speed.|
A special ripening process produces combat-ready berries in record time.
Reinforced Fruit Press
This bespoke fruit press allows for more densely packed fruit in every clip.
Turns out the bluer the blueberry, the more damaging it is to Zombies!
The Berry Shooter is a master of vanquishes, and almost any player's strategy will suffice. For maximum effectiveness, it is recommended to get on very high ground, far away from enemies. At extreme long ranges, the Berry Shooter can still do 30 direct hit damage or 35 if hit in the head, and 15 splash damage. From here, the Zombies will stand no chance, and accept their imminent vanquish.
The Berry Shooter will win in almost all 1v1 situations. The best strategy is to make it a 2v1 battle, come up from behind, and deal damage before the Berry Shooter can retaliate. Try to use abilities that can give a quick boost to your mobility (such as Rocket Jump/Leap, Warp, Energy Warp, Jackhammer, Turbo Jackhammer) to trick the Berry Shooter. Never run straight to a Berry Shooter as he can easily land direct hits on zombies, vanquishing the player's character in seconds. The character that can be the closest to vanquishing Berry Shooters is the Marine Biologist. His Warp can easily get close and the player can back attack them and vanquishing them very quickly before they turn around. However this tactic is extremely risky as the player can accidentally warp in front of the Berry Shooter and would be vanquished almost instantly. Camping is also a good tactic but Berry Shooters can snipe players with their massive splash radius and extreme damage.
With the damage nerf applied in the Legends Of The Lawn DLC, the normal Peashooter and the Berry Shooter are more or less identical in terms of damage, but their main difference is that, in exchange for slower firing and a significantly smaller magazine size, the Berry Shooter has a noticeably wider splash damage radius, requiring less accuracy but being less powerful against fast-moving targets.
- Once the player unlocks him, they will get all the upgrades without having to find them in sticker packs. The same happens with Citrus Cactus, Plasma Pea, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
- He is currently available immediately when opening the game due to him being a free give-away. This is true with all the other characters mentioned above.
- As of the 184.108.40.206 patch, he was weakened, reducing damage and rate of fire.
- This was because he was considered overpowered beforehand as a bodyshot dealt a total of 40 damage and a headshot dealt a monstrous 45 damage, enough to kill an All-Star in just five hits.
- Agent Pea and Law Pea were also weakened as of the Legends of the Lawn update.
- He, Plasma Pea, Rock Pea and Electro Pea are the only Peashooter variants that do not shoot peas.
- The Berry Shooter's projectile is a cluster of berries.
- The first two are also the two Peashooters gained for free without needing to spend coins to earn sticker packs.
- He is one of the four characters to be sponsored by a product. The others are Citrus Cactus, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
- In this case, he is sponsored by Aquafina FlavorSplash flavored drinks.
- Since he is a promotional plant, it didn’t make a return in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. this is also true with Chester Chomper, Dr. Chester, and Citrus Cactus.
- However, Rock Pea seems to be a potential replacement, given his low fire rate and high splash damage.
- Curiously, despite his absence in Garden Warfare 2 due to him being a promotional character, his weapon, the Berry Blast, is still in the game's files, and can be assigned to a Peashooter via hacking, and appears to be fully functional. This also applies for the other 3 promotional characters, as well as the Chester Abilities
