For other uses, see Browncoat Zombie (disambiguation).

Browncoat Zombie, simply Browncoat in Battle for Neighborville, is the basic unit of the zombies in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden WarfarePlants 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.

Primary weapon

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.

Abilities

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.

Strategies

With

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.

Against

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.

Festive variants

Billboard promoting the Turkey Attack Pack. The main objective of this is to 'Unleash the Turkey Browncoats'.

Trivia

  • Sometimes, it will throw rocks. This is used as a long-range attack if it is aiming for a plant that is out of its range.
    • This also happens with the Conehead Zombie and Buckethead Zombie, this is an attack known as Hard Rock Toss.
    • In Garden Warfare 2, Karate Zombies will also do it.
    • In Battle for Neighborville, zombies use Hard Rock Toss more frequently and this attack can now be used by the Heal Zombie.
  • It has the lowest health of any zombie in the game.
    • However, its festive variants have more health than the basic Browncoat.
  • Its description says it uses a Munch attack, but if the player gets vanquished by it, the game says it used a Zombie Hurt attack.
  • It, along with the Conehead Zombies and Buckethead Zombies do not stop running, even when a Potato Mine or a Spikeweed is in their way. However, they stop when a form of Tallnut Battlement is in their way to destroy it.
  • Sometimes, they will run away from Chompers.
    • This always happened in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, so Chompers had advantages in Browncoat hordes.
  • It is the only summonable zombie to have festive variants in the Garden Warfare series.
  • Even though its holiday variant has its design compared to the Coffin and Outhouse Zombies, it does not receive an equally significant health boost.
  • Although the Pumpkin Browncoat returns in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, the jack o' lantern it wears has been redesigned, and is renamed to Jackocoat.
  • In Garden Warfare 2, if the player looks very closely when he is killed when they shoot his head, a bone can be seen sticking out when his head falls off.
    • This applies to other Browncoat variants.
