Abilities

Left abilities
Sonic GrenadeGW1.png
Sonic Grenade
The Sonic Grenade is a grenade that, when thrown, will stun plants in a small radius for a short time and forces Burrowing Chompers out from the ground.
Proximity Sonic MineGW1.png
Proximity Sonic Mine
An alternate ability of the Sonic Grenade, the Proximity Sonic Mine is a landmine which can stun plants for about five seconds when they come close to it. It makes Chompers come out of their Burrow ability if they are using it. This can be very useful for defending a teleporter or trying to escape from plants.
Center abilities
Zombot DroneGW1.png
Zombot Drone
The Zombot Drone is a drone equipped with the Zombot Laser and the deadly Cone Strike. It has five health.

The Jackhammer allows for quicker movement but at the cost at not being able to use your other abilities, though you can still fire your primary weapon, and if you bump into a plant, the plant will suffer knockback and light damage.
Turbo JackhammerGW1.png
Turbo Jackhammer
An alternate ability of the Jackhammer, the Turbo Jackhammer functions the same as the Jackhammer except that it travels faster, but lasts for a shorter amount of time.

Strategies

With

Like the Plumber, the Electrician is most effective when dealing with plants in groups. However, unlike the Plumber, the Electrician deals less splash damage, but actually has an electric shock where two plants could deal seven to ten damage with the mentioned shock. Also unlike the Plumber, his weapon has more ammo in its clip.

The Electrician can deal up to 37 damage, more than a Plumber or basic Engineer, but not as high as the Painter or Sanitation Expert. The Electrician likely will have maxed effectiveness in Gardens & Graveyards, Gnome Bomb, Taco Bandits and Suburbination. In G&G, Gnome Bomb and Suburbination there is a possibility there will be a group of plants together. The electric shock can deal damage to two of the plants at the same time, allowing for easier vanquishes.

In Taco Bandits, the same rules apply there, instead, the plants will be guarding their tacos, and plus a few plants might chase after the teammate carrying the taco. In Gnome Bomb, his primary weapon forces plants to split up when rushing to the tombstones on the map, allowing you to single out the bomber and vanquish him accordingly. It has the same ammo and splash damage as a Peashooter. Use your Sonic Grenades/Sonic Mines to stun plants, especially Chompers.

Against

This variant can be a pain like the Plumber and the Mechanic. To avoid the above-mentioned electric shock, try to move further from your teammates. As usual, Spikeweeds/Spiky Spikeweeds from the Chomper, Potato Mines/Potato Nugget Mines from the Cactus and Chili Bean Bombs/Sombrero Bean Bombs from the Peashooter can work against him.

Try to use rooted abilities where the Electrician cannot see you. Using Burrow also works, but remember as he can likely throw out Sonic Grenades/Proximity Sonic Mines to avoid being chomped. As he can be deadly and such, goop the Electrician to minimize his effectiveness.
