Kernel-Pult is a Common Lobber plant in Plants vs. Zombies 3. It lobs kernels and butter at zombies


Kernel-Pult is a Common plant that is unlocked alongside Snapdragon after beating Floor 3 of Devour Tower. Its seed packets are more likely to be dropped in Taco Park breakout battles.

It costs 5 sun, and it attacks zombies by lobbing weak kernels and has 25% chance to lob butters that briefly stun zombies.



It is based on the plant of the same name from the original game and its sequel.

Its Plant Food name is named after one of Kernel Corn's ability in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.
