Like Giga Gargantuar, he can do both melee and ranged damage, being a threat in all forms of combat. If you are attacking him as a team, have 1 or 2 people distract the Giga-Torchwood, then have 2-3 people attack him. Beware his Big Shots and Firestorm Strike, which fire from ranges farther than his Torch Gatling. If possible, hide behind cover and poke your head out to occasionally attack. Zombies like Foot Soldier or any Sniper is great against this boss since you can get to spots where you can chip off its health.
- In a Super Giga Torchwood wave, fire plants from the first game appear often.
- This is the very first boss plant to be revealed, as well as being the first plant boss revealed at E3.
- He is present in the background of the Vanquish Confirmed image, possibly hinting it to be a new playable character.
- This proved to be true, but if it was a hint or not is unknown.
- The name of his Big Shot ability may reference the attack used by Barret in Final Fantasy VII.
- The fact that his right arm is a Gatling gun also references how said character also has a gun replacing his right arm in said game.
- In Graveyard Ops this is the most common boss to be chosen from the Slot Machine.
