Blitzer (Berserker in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare) is an enemy zombie in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He has a similar appearance to the All-Star, except his helmet, shirt, gloves, and shoes are black, he has spikes on his shoulder plates, and he has horns on his helmet. He only appears in Garden Ops, serving as very tough support in boss waves or special waves. He very rarely appears in normal waves, but the chances of him appearing will rise on higher difficulties. In Garden Warfare 2, he will appear at a more constant rate on Garden Ops, Crazy Mode in the later waves, sometimes replacing the other All-Star zombies that shoot.
Unlike the All-Star, the Blitzer does not wield any weapon. His main attack is using Sprint Tackle, an All-Star ability. However, he can use Sprint Tackle infinite times and knock players away, which makes it hard to face multiple Blitzers. He also can use Zombie Hurt on the player, an attack that most forms of Browncoats also use. He has the same health as the All-Star, but requires more ranged firepower to be taken out.
He has his own special wave called Tackle Dummies. A bunch of them will appear in a Super Gargantuar Wave, and the All-Star wave in Power of the Flag game in Backyard Battleground. He also appears in reinforced hordes.

If you see a Blitzer facing towards you, you had better escape fast, as each tackle deals 35 damage to you, has a 5 second cooldown, and propels you into the air unrooting you. As mentioned earlier, his tackle does not have the cooldown of a playable All-Star, so it is possible to get shoved into a corner and killed by one or two Blitzers. As Peashooter, you can use Hyper or Super Pea Jump to escape him. As a Chomper, use Burrow or Sprint Burrow to escape. Additionally, you can chomp him, but beware that you need to be fast, as he can still tackle you out of the Burrowing mode. As a Cactus, you can place Tallnut Battlements to block him. It is also good to use the Garlic Drone from a safe distance from this zombie.
- Only in Garden Warfare, he has the ability to jump very high, making him able to get to high places.
- When the player looks at his back, they can see his name "Berserker" on it, in a similar way to the All-Star and his variants. This was not changed in Garden Warfare 2, even though his name was changed in said game.
- They are counted as All-Stars, because when a player has a quest for defeating All-Stars, defeating Blitzers will count towards that quest.
