Gumnuts pop sticky gum onto zombies, blocking other zombies behind.

Penny

Gumnut is a plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2, that was first introduced in the 8.0.1 update. It creates zombie-blocking barriers from zombies themselves, with stronger barriers being formed from tougher and sturdier zombies.

About

Gumnut is a seasonal Arena plant, unlockable with seed packets. It is a single-use plant which blows bubble gum that pops on the first zombie that approaches it, which immobilizes them and causes them to attack the gum.

Zombies immobilized with the gum also act as barriers, blocking zombies in a similar manner to zombies frozen in Ice Bloom's ice blocks.

Origins

Gumnut
Gumnut is based on a "gumnut," the hardened seed container of Eucalyptus trees.

Its name is a pun on the "Gumnut" seeing as it literally chews gum, as well as providing defense like most other nut plants.

Trivia

  • When zombies are immobilized by gum, they can't be tossed by Power Toss. They also cannot be knocked back by plants like Primal Peashooter.
  • They are also immune to Spikeweed, Spikerock, Chomper and Toadstool when they're immobilized. Even when boosted, these plants can only chill them.
    • Snap Pea will also ignore the immobilized zombies but they can still damage them by throwing zombie heads at them.
  • If the immobilized zombie gets hypnotized or turned into Imp Pear Imps, they will be free instantly.
  • If a zombie gummed by Gumnut turns into an ice block by Ice Bloom, other zombies have to eat the left-over gum from the ice block before being able to eat the ice block, thus preserving the ice block and the gum.
  • Gumnut will not affect any zombies that are being stunned by Contain-mint.
