Strategies

The Commando Pea is the closest the Peashooter can get to matching the Foot Soldier in terms of primary weapon behavior. The Commando Pea is ideal for players who have good accuracy but have trouble leading their shots. The more shots that hit, the better, as Commando Pea doesn't have splash damage. Overall, due to his similarity with the Foot Soldier, players that are skilled with the Foot Soldier should have good thoughts about the Commando Pea. Just remember that the Commando Pea shoots slower, is less accurate, and has a lower damage per second value but on the contrary, he does not burn through his magazine as quickly, making reloads slightly less frequent.

With

The Commando Pea can be thought of as a Foot Soldier and All-Star breed with Peashooter abilities, with the trade off having 75 HP less health and less accuracy. Commando Pea, compared to the All-Star, does not take a time to begin firing, does not lower in speed while firing, can jump while firing, and does not take a time to fully stop firing before regaining speed. Compared to Foot Soldier, while less accurate, with more damage per bullet and a lower fire rate, he does not burn through his magazine as easily and makes less noise when firing.

The Commando Pea is basically a moving Pea Gatling. Fix your target on an unsuspecting zombie, and constantly shoot at it.

Commando Pea works well in ambush situations. Use your small size to your advantage and hide. Stay hidden and only strike one zombie at a time. Do not be afraid to take a hit, as an enemy is likely to flee before you do. Try getting close to zombies and using Hyper when noticed to evade enemy shots.

It is wise to avoid long-range combat and instead get close before attacking. Never fight more than two zombies at a time unless you have a backup plan or you are receiving support from other plants. When playing this variant in Garden Warfare 2, it may be important to use the zoom upgrade, for the Commando Pea's close range weapon when facing an enemy from far away, though it may be not needed for the Hyper ability.

Make every shot count, since only direct hits will deal damage. Commando Pea is best for players with high accuracy.


This class is suited for those who don't like spamming their shots and want a full-auto firing weapon. Keep in mind though, his peas will have large damage drop-off over a distance.

Against

Watch out for Commando Pea. Whether he is ambushing you or you are just directly attacking him as, in the right hands, he can be a powerful foe. A 1v1 against him is the last thing you want, so try fighting him at long range where his primary weapon will lose a great deal of accuracy and thus become much less harmful. In close quarters, attack in teams, this will give you the edge since Commando Pea lacks skills to harm multiple Zombies with his primary weapon.

Speed does not give you any real advantage as the sheer number of peas shot can easily compensate for misses but on the contrary, the lack of splash damage means that quick and erratic movement can allow you to gain the upper hand as misses will not deal any damage to you.

This is the one peashooter that (most of the time), should be safe to approach and vanquish as an Imp.
