Plant Olive Pits and watch as they gobble up zombies.

Penny

Olive Pit is a premium plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that was introduced in the 8.2.1 update. When played, Olive Pit buries itself in the ground, and acts as a pitfall trap, swallowing and instantly killing any zombie that steps on it. After burying itself, every 7 seconds, Olive Pit spits out olive oil on the tile in front of itself, lasting 6 seconds.

Zombies that step on oil will have their speed and bite attack reduced by 33.3% (66.7% in the Chinese version). Once it becomes full, the Olive Pit will pause to chew, then spit out 3 puddles of olive oil in the three tiles in front of itself.

In the Chinese version, Olive Pit's chew speed is increased to 60 seconds.

Origins

20140910-olives-vicky-wasik-5-nicoise.jpg

Olive Pit is based on the olive, the fruit of the Olea europaea tree native to the Mediterranean primarily harvested for its vegetable oil, a key ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine.

Olive Pit's name is a pun on its function as a pitfall trap and on the real-life pit that is the seed of an olive.

Strategies

Olive Pit can be seen as a much more flexible Chomper, as it can devour more zombies before chewing, cannot be destroyed by most zombies, and spits out olive oil which slows approaching zombies in a similar fashion to Sap-fling. The trade-off is that Olive Pit is slightly more expensive, recharges a little slower, and cannot affect zombies that don’t walk over it. Olive Pit also does no continuous damage to targets it can’t swallow, unlike Chomper.

Due to Olive Pit's insta-kill nature, it makes an excellent plant for thinning out dangerous zombies from hordes. Its immunity to most zombies makes it a great option to plant in the right-hand columns, nearest to where the zombies spawn. A fully upgraded olive pit can consume six zombies before it needs to chew and then only spends 10 seconds chewing - this can be enough to significantly thin large hordes of zombies with very little drawback, as Olive Pit is safe from most harm whilst it's chewing.

However, Olive Pit does have some weaknesses. Flying enemies are completely immune to both the pit and the olive oil, and it is completely useless against Gargantuars, who are also one of the few zombies that can destroy it. Jurassic Rockpuncher, while not immune to getting swallowed if planted directly on him, will notice it and destroy it instead of walking onto it. Olive Pit is also incapable of dealing with consistent zombie hordes, as it must eventually stop to chew. As such, bringing another offensive plant is essential, so as to not overwhelm the Olive Pits.

Olive Pit, much like Chomper, also belongs to a fairly underwhelming mint family. Contain-mint doesn’t have that much utility within its family, and the only direct attack plant in it are Dazey Chain and Draftodil.

Olive Pit makes a great guard against plants vulnerable to direct attack, such as Electric Currant or Phat Beet. Should your defenses not be adequate against all threats that approach them, Olive Pits are a great last ditch (literally) to stop any zombies that might crawl through.

Olive Pit is an excellent plant to use in Arena because it can devour most of the zombies that show up, but the player should beware of Gargantuars, Jurassic Rockpunchers, and machines.
