The February 2018 Patch is a balancing patch in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 that was released on February 15th, 2018.

Dev Notes

The latest in our series of balance updates has sprouted for Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2! You can download it now and then shamble into battle – where things won’t be quite the same as yesterday. Here’s a look at what has changed:

Party characters not in “Party Time!” feel lackluster and don’t have the same kind of game impact as other legendary characters. This patch looks to change that by giving the Party characters a much-needed boost to their base damage.

Sunflower is our token healer but gets punished heavily, and as a result is not seeing much playtime. We are increasing the Sunflower’s health for all variants with the goal to improve her survivability. Additionally, Stuffy Flower received a damage buff so it’s easier to get that final blow and utilize her passive ability.

Captain Squawk, Plumber, and Landscaper were seeing low playtime. We made some quality of life tuning changes for them so they should play and feel better.
