Leaf Shield Weed is a Spawnable Plant and a Weed variant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It is essentially a Pumpkin Weed that carries a large leaf to protect itself, like a shield. It is the plant counterpart of the Newspaper Zombie but is tougher health-wise.
It has two attacks, Weed Whip, its melee attack, which deals 25 with the leaf intact and 15 damage otherwise and Seed Spit, its ranged attack, which deals 25 damage.
A leaf may not make for the best shield around, but it's better than nothing!
Easy: 54 HP
Normal: 72 HP
Hard: 90 HP
CRAAAAZY: 108 HP
The leaf can substain 50 damage before being destroyed
Use a character that deals no splash damage and hit the pumpkin to vanquish the weed istantly. Alternatively you can use characters with big damage to destroy the shield first.
