Kernel Corn is a front line attacker, so make sure your in the battle first. If you’re playing Turf Takeover, and there are a lot of enemies in the area, throw a Butter Beacon to weaken them and reveal their positions. You can also use Butter Beacon to see how many enemies are in an area to improve your attack plan-keep in mind that enemies know when they have been detected. If you see a lot of enemies in a tight group, use Shuck Shot against them, but be smart about it-it is simple for an enemy to sprint away from your attack. Kernel Corn isn't the best plant when it comes to chasing enemies, and is useless when enemies are in pursuit of Kernel Corn. Try to attack sprinting enemies, slowing them down, then use Husk Hop to get close to them/attack them.
The best strategy is to attack Kernel Corn from a distance, so that he cannot use the lethal Husk Hop ability, If he fires Shuck Shots at you, they will be easier to dodge from a distance.
