Chest-nut (板栗小队; pinyin: bǎnlì xiǎoduì) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Chestnut seeds come out of the shell and headbutt zombies. They can go to attack zombies that are far away while acting as defensive plants at the same time. Zombies will attack the seeds first instead of the plant on the tile where the seeds are located. Once one of the seeds is eaten up, another new seed will soon come out from the shell to replace it. If the zombies get behind them, they will follow those zombies and keep attacking. The chestnuts are also semi-defensive similar to Aggro Brocco, Pea-nut, Red Stinger, Endurian, Durian, and Kiwibeast.

Almanac entry

DAMAGE: Normal
RANGE: Multi-Hit

特点:召唤持续存在的板栗小兵

小板栗们最喜欢住在一起生活,当有人问起原因时,他们就会跟对方自豪地讲述一群刚毕业的小板栗挤在一栋小屋内艰苦奋斗,互相扶持,誓要出栗头地的故事。当然在故事的最后他们还会不忘小小地抱怨一下某个外号“靓仔”的小板栗挤占太多空间的不良行径……而跟他们认识了很多年的毛竹同学一句话道出了真相:“他们不过是没钱付房租罢了。”

    In English:

    Chest-nut summons chestnuts that attack zombies in a certain area.

    Special: Summons groups of chestnuts
    Plant feature: green plant, offensive and defensive, brother group

    These little chestnuts prefer to live together. When somebody asks them why, they'll begin sharing their story with pride——A group of chestnuts who've just graduated crowded into one small room, worked hard, supported each other, wanted to be great out of its kind. And, at the end of the story-telling, they never forget to add a tiny grumble about a chestnut nicknamed "Handsome Boy" occupying so much space that's a bad behavior... However, an old classmate, Mao Bamboo, revealed the true cause merely in a word: "They just can't afford the rent of a larger room".

Strategies

This is a really versatile and decent plant which is able to damage and defend at the same time. Its costumed Plant Food can instantly kill zombies, being one of the few able to do that. The plant itself is really good for a solid 175 sun and a sluggish recharge. It is not recommended to use it in Big Wave Beach or Sky City since chestnuts need lily pads to cross water tiles and no option is available for chestnuts to cross air tiles.

Advisable to be used with Laser Bean or Winter Melon. No need for a defensive plant, as this already is one. Handle with care, as this plant can be overwhelmed, as is not the most defensive of them all. It is advisable to have it with a Heavenly Peach to guarantee it to survive later waves.

Trivia

  • The eyes of the green shell are actually the eyes of one of the chestnut seeds inside the shell.
    • If the shell is not creating new chestnut seeds, it will perform somersaults in place.
  • The chestnuts can move to another tile if they are attacked.
  • When the chestnuts attack a Mecha-Football Zombie, they will move with it.
  • Each chestnut can take a Gargantuar hit, leaving the other chestnuts alive but zombies like Barrel Roller Zombie that crush any plant on a tile kills every chestnut.
  • The chestnuts cannot go over the water in Big Wave Beach unless there are Lily Pads for them to cross.
  • The almanac entry of Chest-nut is a reference to typical Chinese citizens' life especially in first-tier cities, where housing is usually considered to be dramatically difficult.
