For other uses, see Fume-shroom (disambiguation).

Fume-shroom is a Mushroom appearing in Plants vs. Zombies 2. He is capable of spraying fumes doing 40 damage per shot which hits every zombie four tiles ahead of him. Fume-shroom suffers from limited range, his attack only being triggered by and having effect on a zombie or tombstone appearing 4 spaces in front of him.


About

For more information about this character, see Fume-shroom.

Fume-shroom is unlocked after completing Dark Ages - Night 4. He has received a significant amount of changes compared to the first games: He attacks every two seconds, dealing 40 damage per shot to every zombie for each attack. His effective range has also been raised to five tiles, and he can now be used in other worlds without any penalty, due to the absence of the sleeping mechanic and Coffee Bean.

Strategies

Fume-shroom fills in the middle ground between Snapdragon and Laser Bean: His effective range, while greater than Snapdragon's, is not infinite like Laser Bean's. A Fume-shroom deals more damage per second than a Laser Bean and as much damage as a Snapdragon, but does not enjoy Snapdragon's attack stacking capability and therefore will do less damage per second when planted in a column. Regardless, all three plants are excellent at crowd controlling, and they will prove to be useful in both normal levels and Endless Zones due to the constantly escalating amount of zombies compared to that of the first game.

Like in the first game, Fume-shroom is effective against zombies that attempt to shield themselves from normal projectiles, such as Barrel Roller Zombie, Shield Zombie and Excavator Zombie. He is also useful in cleaning up tombstones, as it can hit up to five tombstones at once while still being able to damage zombies.

Fume-shrooms are a great choice against Zombie Chicken in Wild West and Ice Weasels in Frostbite Caves. While he is slightly worse than Lightning Reed in combating Zombie Chickens because of the lower attack speed and decreased range, Fume-shroom does a much better job against Ice Weasels as he can kill them in one hit while Lightning Reed will require eight hits to achieve the same result.

Fume-shroom is especially effective in his home world, the Dark Ages, because he is cheap, and his attack can't be blocked by any of the zombies there (Jester Zombie blocks all projectiles, while Imp Dragon is immune to fire, making plants like Jack O' Lantern and Snapdragon less effective).

Trivia

  • His cap is slightly transparent, most noticeably when Fume-shroom is given Plant Food.
  • His attack was glitched in the 3.4.4 update, being able to deal splash damage on adjacent lanes like Snapdragon, and could reach 5.5 tiles in front of it instead of five. This was fixed in the 3.5.1 update.
  • He's is nicknamed as "Balloon-shroom" in Almanac, which refers to his Plant Food upgrade.
  • Although one of his costumes references Nightcap from Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, Nightcap cannot use Fume-shroom under normal circumstances.
  • In the Chinese version, if Fume-shroom is level 4 and costumed, and is spawned by a Spore-shroom that is level 2 or up, it can also activate his Plant Food effect, unlike most other mushrooms. However, this effect will be glitched.
