For the version in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, see Captain Flameface.

Captain Flameface is the Rare fire variant of Captain Deadbeard in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He was first revealed on December 7, 2015 in a video released in Facebook. His primary weapon stores less ammo than the Spyglass Shot/Scurvy Scattershot, in exchange for more damage, along with the fire effect. It is also capable of piercing through multiple targets, similar to Mob Cob. His primary weapon also uses two ammo per shot out of its eight ammo clip.


Stickerbook description

Captain Flameface was making lunch, minding his own business, when he got his beard caught in the toaster. From that day forward, he decided to dedicate his life to the pursuit of the flame.

In-game description

Shots from his Piercing Peg Shot pass through multiple targets!

Primary weapons

His primary weapons are the Flame Blast and the Piercing Peg Shot. Flame Blast is used when firing from the hip, and can only hit targets at close range. It deals 25 damage and sets the target on fire (burning them with 5 damage per second). Using Flame Blast costs two ammo. Piercing Peg Shot is used when the player zooms in. It deals 15 to 20 impact damage and 18 to 24 critical damage. The Piercing Peg Shot also deals fire damage. The projectiles fired from the Piercing Peg Shot penetrate through up to 4 plants, which means that any plants directly behind the plant being shot at will also take damage. Each Piercing Peg Shot uses one ammo.

This futuristic friend is made of metal, but she doesn't let that slow her down... well, actually she is a bit slower. But she's tougher too!
Right abilities
Cannon RodeoGW2.png
The Cannon Rodeo is every bit as fun as it sounds. Ride a giant cannon and shoot super powerful cannon balls at whatever you want!



Either being a sniper class and a short ranged class, you still have the fire element/attribute at your side. Shooting a plant from a long or short distance will set them on fire dealing multiple damage. So if your accuracy is off, and you only are capable of hitting once or twice, you can still deal a bit of damage. Close-quarters combat can be recommended, just make sure you're not spotted, and try to be behind the target


Being against Captain Flameface, or any Captain at all requires skill. Using any sort of shield-like ability, or spawning any sort of shield-like weed won't work because of the piercing. Have some Sunflowers nearby, as his fire effect can deal damage as well.

Balancing changes

Trouble in Zombopolis: Part Two DLC

  • Reduced ranged rate of fire from 150 – 125



  • Him lighting his beard on fire might be a reference to the famous pirate captain Blackbeard, who liked to set fire to his beard via candles and other flames to scare his enemies.
  • The short-range version of his weapon shares its name with the weapon of Flame Man from Mega Man 6, the Flame Blast.
    • In addition, they both shoot short-ranged bursts of fire.
