Co-Star is an ability for the Wizard in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. When activated, Wizard warps on to a zombie's head as a star orb and can shoot rapid fire projectiles and granting that zombie armor.
When you face the same direction as your zombie, you'll be able to shoot homing projectiles and see Plants through obstacles in front of you in a similar manner to Kernel Corn's Butter Beacon ability.
Hover above an ally as a star in an orb to provide extra firepower and grant them armor.
Wizard Co-Stars Hover above a zombie to grant them armor. If the face the same direction as their zombie buddy, Starz Align activates, granting them both powerful buffs!
Wizard Co-Star's primary weapon is the Shooting Star. Its rate of fire varies depending on whether Starz Align has been achieved, having a fast rate of fire when it is achieved and a slow rate of fire when not.
Its damage per shot also varies, dealing 3-6-10 damage with each consecutive hit. The weapon also has splash damage, which like the impact damage also has varying damage output, dealing 5-8 damage with each consecutive splash damage hit.

Co-Star is Wizard's best support ability, as it provides buffs to both himself and his teammates. When hooked up to a teammate he gains a new weapon, the Shooting Star, which varies in damage output and rate of fire depending on whether Starz Align has been achieving (done by facing the same direction as your teammate).
It's recommended to always remain in Starz Align as the Shooting Star is very weak in its base form. The Wizard's other two abilities are also available even when in Co-Star mode. One should also eject from Co-Star mode when a teammate is about to be vanquished and Zee-lixer is available, as the stun effect from being ejected from a vanquished enemy leaves you very vulnerable.
