Carrotillery (胡萝卜导弹车; pinyin: húluóbo dǎodànchē) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He attacks by firing high damaging carrot missiles at zombies.


For more information about this character, see Carrotillery.

Carrotillery is a Rare Monthly special plant. He fires four carrot missiles at zombies. One carrot missile is powerful enough to kill a Basic Zombie.

Carrot missiles are fired in an arc, allowing them to be fired over obstacles such as Tombstones, Surfboards, and Ice blocks. After firing four carrot missiles, Carrotillery has to recharge.



Carrotillery is based on Daucus carota sativus, more commonly known as a carrot, a domesticated root vegetable whose wild counterparts are native to Europe and Southeast Asia.

His name comes from "carrot", the plant in which he's based on, and "artillery", a class of heavy military ranged weapons, referencing his high damaging carrot missiles.

    Carrotillery was a robot fan during his teens. His room was full of robots, he nearly played all robot themed video games, and he even tried putting on a robot tattoo. When he became a scientist, he researched intensively on how to harness solar power as fuel for robots. There, he used the results on himself. So people call him Carrotillery, but he prefers to call himself Optimus Prime.


Plant Food effect

When fed Plant Food, he shoots a big carrot to the ground. When it is destroyed it explodes. If it hits a zombie directly, it also explodes. The carrot absorbs 400 DPS and deals 1800 DPS of damage in a 1x3 area.


He now shoots a nuke that blocks more zombies.

He is very strong and deals high damage. However, he is extremely expensive, so you might want some more support.

He faces competition with R.A.D Missiles, due to the latter's cheaper cost and higher damage.

If you are planning to use a Level 1 Carrotillery, it is advised to use a defensive plant eg. Wall-nut, due to recharging time. However, if he is higher level, some weaker defensive plants like Primal Wall-nut or Radish will do the trick, but still defend him as he will fire more carrots at once, although his rearming time is reduced drastically.

Carrotillery will be able to wreak havoc in the case of occasional tough zombies, like for example Robo-Cone Zombie. Far Future is an excellent example of where Carrotillery will come handy. You should be more cautious in for example Neon Mixtape Tour, where large groupings of low health zombies will waste Carrotillery's carrot missiles, so when a zombie-like Hair Metal Gargantuar comes out, Carrotillery will probably have only 0-2 missiles to combat the Gargantuar before he will have to enter a recharge stage. The same applies to Modern Day, where Portals will pose a huge threat to his utility.
