Browncoat Zombie, simply Browncoat in Battle for Neighborville, is the basic unit of the zombies in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It can be summoned from glowing dirt piles in Gardens & Graveyards and Taco Bandits. It can be commonly obtained in the Reinforcements Pack in groups of more than one.
It is the Basic Zombie from Plants vs. Zombies. The best reason for its abundance is its low damage and very weak toughness. Despite this, they can still buy a few seconds when summoned in mass with Conehead Zombies and Buckethead Zombies. There is a Pirate version which only appears in Garden Ops in Port Scallywag and Sharkbite Shores or when the player destroys a Barrel Pirate's barrel in multiplayer servers. Its attacks are Zombie Hurt and Hard Rock Toss. Each Zombie Hurt attack deals 15 damage while Hard Rock Toss deals 25 damage.
Some festive variants have appeared and distributed in respective holidays, with the same powers and attributes but different appearances and minor health differences. Its plant counterpart is the Weed.
In Battle for Neighborville the standard Browncoat can no longer be spawned in by the player in multiplayer modes, but still appear as common enemies in Graveyard Ops as well as the two free roam areas.

The Browncoat's primary weapon is called Zombie Hurt, it is a short range attack that deals 15 damage at a slow pace, however, other variants of weeds will have slightly different melee attacks each with different names. Browncoats will prefer to use their melee attacks, moving in closer to the target to attack them directly.
Hard Rock Toss: A long ranged attack which deals 15 damage. Browncoats will only use Hard Rock Toss when their target is first sighted a long distance away, before moving closer towards the target to attack using their short ranged primary attack.
These zombies are not too strong on their own, and are best used as a distraction so you and your teammates can make progress towards your objective in-game. In Gardens & Graveyards, they can also be used to increase the number of zombies in the garden, so you can have a better chance of capturing it.
Browncoats, as mentioned before, are not very strong on their own. When you encounter one, just use your primary weapon. You could also use your abilities, but it is not really worth it, as it would just be a waste for a zombie that is weak.
To celebrate certain seasons that have occurred during the existence of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, special seasonal Browncoat zombies variants were released for a limited time. These are the methods of obtaining them:

Alternatively, Happy Halloween packs could be opened for 30,000 coins for the duration of two weeks starting from 31 October 2014. The packs later reappeared again on October 22, 2015, again for 30,000 coins.
Obtained by opening the free Turkey Attack Pack given to all players to commemorate Fall Food Fight. Only ten can be obtained and they can only be obtained from this pack. For some odd reason, they did not return in 2015.
