- For the version in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, see Dummy Shield.
Dummy Shield is a zombie ability for the All-Star in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. When deployed, the dummy creates a dome that blocks a much larger area then in. In addition, zombies can shoot and walk through the dome while plants can only do the latter.
Protect your team by placing a dome-shielded dummy.
Deploying Tackle Dummy knocks enemies away.
Deploying Dummy Shield knocks enemies 10m (32.80 ft) upward and 7m (32.80 ft) backward and the Shield refreshes in 4 seconds.
Allies get revived faster when inside Tackle Dummy shield.
Reduces the time to revive an ally by 50% when inside the Dummy Shield.
Is useful for protecting your team against enemy attacks, as it protects a large area. Place it around a Heavy Helper to protect it and give all protected Zombies a boost. Use it to protect allies that are reviving fallen comrades.
The shield's weak spot is the dummy itself, so characters that can get in close are good at destroying it. Night Cap is particularly good as she can use Shadow Sneak to get inside the shield undetected, then Fung Fu to destroy the shield and hopefully any Zombies inside of it.
If you try to deploy the shield too close to a movable objective, such as the payload in Loggy Acres or the master switch in Tourist Trap Island, the shield will be instantly destroyed. Deploying it slightly further away is the only workaround for this problem.
