Not to be confused with Heal Zombie from Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.

Healer Zombie is a zombie encountered in Penny's Pursuit. He uses his staff to heal a zombie. When he is killed, he will drop his staff, which acts like a tombstone, but also heals nearby zombies and destroys any plants/hypnotized zombies occupying that tile. In addition to his ability to heal, he is immune to certain effects, such as Hypno-shroom's hypnotism, Shadow-shroom's poison, and Imp Pear's ability from Plant Food.

Overview

Healer Zombie absorbs 555 damage per shot. He degrades at 277.5 dps (when his arm is lost) and finally is defeated at 555 dps (when his head is lost). His staff absorbs 350 dps.

Strategies

The Healer Zombie is extremely dangerous. His ability is the most hazardous when near groups of zombies, high-health zombies, or both. As such, instant-kills might be preferable to take him out, as well as any zombies he might heal. One can also delay the zombies and pick them off with instant-kills before finally killing the healer. Dartichoke is not always viable, as healers can come in massive hordes, so it can also be a good idea to take them out as fast as possible. Plants that hypnotize such as Hypno-shroom and Caulipower are not recommended when Healer Zombie is in play, as Healer Zombie will be able to 'cure' zombies of hypnosis. In addition to 'curing' zombies of hypnosis, the Healer Zombie himself is immune to being hypnotized (which makes Electric Blueberry a better choice than Caulipower in this case). He is also able to 'cure' zombies of poison and he is immune to poison himself. Using plants that can electrocute zombies against him can be quite useful, since he won't leave his staff when he's electrified.

Using a Zoybean Pod to deal with him is not recommended (except when boosted), because of his ability of healing himself and other zombies that take damage from Zomboids can easily overwhelm your Zomboids without any problem. However, if the player tries to use a boosted Zoybean Pod against him, it is advised to spawn many Gargantuar Zomboids on a lane at once by Tile Turnip, instead of spawning only one Gargantuar Zomboid per lane.
