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 also not really a counter to have against Hyper. Just do your best to vanquish the opponent regardless of their ability, and hope for the best. Increased speed, jump height, and the user already has the smallest plant hitbox in Garden Warfare, make Peashooters in Hyper a pain to land your shots at.
You can use movement-inhibiting abilities such as Sonic Grenade to stun the Peashooter, making him easier to kill. In Garden Warfare 2, you can use the Gravity Grenade to catch the Peashooter and kill him. (Remember, plants in Gravity Grenade can still shoot back.) Or maybe Biotic Pull if you are playing as the Z7 Imp. You could also try to run and wait for the Peashooter's Hyper to expire, making him much easier to shoot at.
- 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.
