In a mysterious western town, Dual Pistol Pinecone is a sharpshooter cowboy, fighting all sorts of zombie bullies that invade his town, zombies tremble as soon as his name is mentioned. He almost became the town sheriff, but he turned it down, because he feels that sheriffs think that they're too good to go to the bar and drink.
He fires six fireballs at the closest zombie in the lawn. If they kill the zombie, they will then home to next zombie.

With 60 damage per shot and an ocassional knockback projectile, Dual Pistol Pinecone's abilities may sound good at first, but it is severely outcassed by many plants who can do its job better.
While 60 damage may be much, its slow firing rate of 5-8 seconds and a sun cost of 325 is what hinders it. Furthermore, Primal Peashooter can do its job better since Primal Peashooter costs cheaper and has a more consistent firing rate and knockback rate, along with a stunning effect.
If you do plan to use Dual Pistol Pinecone, use it on any level that doesn't have obstacles such as tombstones and weapon stands. Be careful of certain zombies such as Bass Zombie and Egg Pusher Imp, as they can make more obstscles that block Dual Pistol Pinecone's projectiles. Avoid using Dual Pistol Pinecone on levels with Excavator Zombies, since they won't get hurt by it.
