Hyper is an ability for the Peashooter in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. This ability allows the Peashooter to move much faster and jump much higher than usual. It takes 25 seconds to recharge. Its alternate ability is the Super Pea Jump.
When a Peashooter uses his Hyper ability, he will not only run incredibly fast, but can also jump extremely high.
This ability has many uses. It allows the player to get to unreachable spots of all classes except the Foot Soldier (and sometimes Scientist). Therefore, the player can use Pea Gatling to defend his or her point in Garden Ops or Gardens & Graveyards, or just get a vantage point for any other game mode. It is also good for retreating as the Peashooter runs very fast.
There's not really much of a counter for Hyper, but there's also not really a counter to have against it. Just do your best to vanquish the opponent regardless of their ability, and hope for the best. In Garden Warfare 2 you can use the Gravity Grenade or Biotic Pull to counter this ability if you are playing as the Z7 Imp.
- The Peashooter in the icon has no organics.
- In a beta image, it is shown as a Plants vs. Zombies 2-style Repeater doing this ability, due to the Peashooter's very similar look to the Repeater.
- However, it was changed to its current icon in the final game.
