Night Cap is a Rare Shooter plant unlocked Plants vs. Zombies 3. She slowly fires piercing projectiles at zombies.


For more information about this character, see Night Cap.

Night Cap is a Shooter plant obtained by the player after beating Floor 21 of Devour Tower along with Fairy Ring Mushroom. Her seed packets are more likely to be dropped in Shallot Graveyard breakout levels.

She costs 7 Sun and attacks zombies by firing a shadow projectile that pierces through multiple zombies in a similar manner to Pine Needler. After firing a projectile, she then has to charge up her next attack, leaving her vulnerable to zombie attacks.
