Far Future - Day 2 is the second level of Far Future in Plants vs. Zombies 2. The Shield Zombie is introduced here. After completing this level, the player receives a money bag.


The player must deal with the Shield Zombie, which will block projectile shots for a short amount of time, and repeatedly put up its shield over and over again. The player is required to use the newly acquired Laser Bean to combat this, but cheaper plants that do damage without projectiles like Snapdragon are also options.


The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Strategy 1 (Contains premium content)

  • Required plants:
  • Plant two columns of sun-producing plants (one if you chose the Twin Sunflower). Do as what you would do in every stage.
  • Plant at least one column of Laser Beans and on Power Tiles. Then, a Shield Zombie will approach. Its special ability is it can create a force field that absorbs 1200 damage per shot to protect the zombies. Therefore, the Laser Bean will shoot through it and be able to attack Shield Zombie as well as other zombies behind it. If you use projectile plants, they may be able to destroy the force field, but after that, the Shield Zombie will create another force field, making it difficult to defeat it.
  • A Bonk Choy can also attack through the force field, so use them along Laser Bean, then plant a defensive plant in front of it. The level will be very easy if you do so.
  • Do not forget to take advantage of the Power Tiles, as they are very useful even later in the level.

Strategy 2

  • Required plants: Sunflower2.png Iceberg Lettuce2.png Kernel-pult2.png Bloomerang2.png Bonk Choy2.png Repeater2.png
  • Occupy every tile in the first and second column by planting Sunflowers.
  • Plant a few columns (preferably two) of Bloomerangs and Kernel-pults.
  • When things start to get a bit tough, plant Bonk Choys and Repeaters. They will help in dealing with zombies that come in large numbers.
  • Plant Iceberg Lettuces as well. Give them Plant Food when the zombies arrive in large numbers so that the Iceberg Lettuces may freeze them in place, thus allowing your plants to quickly beat the zombies and as well as giving you the opportunity to strengthen your defense.

Strategy 3

Created by SomeRandomPlanter
  • Required plants:
  • Plant the first row with Sunflower (only plant three, after step 2, start planting more during the level, but you need at least one column of Sunflowers.)
  • In the fourth column, place three Lightning Reeds near the middle. If any zombies pass by, use Chili Bean or Lava Guava to kill that zombie.
  • Place a Laser Bean whenever a whole lane of zombies clumps up in the third column. Use Stallia to slow them down and place more Lighting Reeds to add more damage. Place a Snapdragon on the fifth column, both the second lane and fourth lane. Place two more Laser Bean in the third column on the second and fourth lane (if one is placed there, just place the Laser Bean on another lane.
  • When the Shield Zombie comes rolling in, place a Spikeweed on the third column in its lane. Use Stallia to slow them down if needed.
  • Use the plant food on Stallia to give more damage or Chili Bean to kill more zombies unless the attacking plants need to mow down a lane.
  • If this does not work out (though it was tested three times) switching out Stallia is the better option.

Strategy 4

  • Required plants:
  • Simply put down some Sunflowers, and use Iceberg Lettuce and Potato Mine to stall zombies, to get sun.
  • Once the first Shield zombie comes, plant a Snapdragon and Wall-nut.
  • Make sure to spread defensive plants.
  • Use two columns of Snapdragons. Any more is a waste.
  • This should beat the level.
