For the Chinese version of this level, see Modern Day - Day 2 (Chinese version).

Modern Day - Day 2 is the second level of Modern Day in Plants vs. Zombies 2. This level contains portals and the appearance of some Ancient Egypt zombies. After completing this level, the player receives a money bag. This is the first level to feature zombies from another world without portals, as another gimmick in Modern Day.


This level introduces the second gimmick of Modern Day, zombies from different worlds appearing in levels not via portal. The zombies in this level, however, are only some Ancient Egypt zombies, and in small quantities too. This includes the Gargantuar. However, where this level becomes a bit difficult is the portals, which are all Big Wave Beach portals. The zombies that spawn from them can cause huge havoc on the lawn. Surfer Zombies can instantly kill a plant once spawned, assuming a plant is in front of a portal, and Octo Zombie can bind up plants easily, with its good amount of health and position of where he spawns.


The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.
