Peashooter is a main recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Peashooter serves as the player's first line of defense against the zombies and is often the first plant the player unlocks or plays as.

Peashooter's personality and character throughout the franchise has rarely been elaborated on, with the most stated on him is his high determination and perseverance in fighting zombie enemies, this is likely intentional to reflect on his basic attack role.

As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Peashooter has appeared in every game in the Plants vs. Zombies franchise.

Like most other pea-shooting plants, Peashooter is based on the pea plant (Pisum sativum).

The term peashooter is normally used to refer to a toy version of a blowgun, or as a slang for small or low-caliber firearms, referring to how weak he is in the Plants vs. Zombies games (except for the Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare series).

The name also refers to the fact that Peashooter literally shoots peas.

In the original Plants vs. Zombies game, as well as all Chinese spin-off games based on it, Peashooter is the first plant obtained upon starting the game. He attacks zombies by firing peas down his lane.

He is the only regular, long-ranged offensive plant available up until Snow Pea is unlocked after beating Level 1-6. He is the first Peashooting plant introduced, followed by plants such as Snow Pea and Repeater.

Peashooter made a reappearance in PopCap's ill-fated Facebook game Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, where he retained his role as the player's first form of offense the player receives.

Due to the 3-dimensional style of the tower defense featured in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, Peashooter no longer attacks in a straight line down a row, instead he is able to attack zombies one-by-one in a 5x5 area around himself.

He has two VIP variants based on him, the Sweet Pea and the Beeshooter.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

In Plants vs. Zombies 2, Peashooter is once again the first plant available in the player's seed arsenal, obtained before starting the first level.

He is the only regular offensive plant that is available until Cabbage-pult is unlocked after beating Player's House - Day 4.

He is a member of the Appease-mint family, dealing 150 more DPS when they are on the field and his Plant Food effect has him wear a helmet similar to Gatling Pea and fire a burst of 60 peas.

Garden Warfare series

Peashooter lays a prominent role in the Garden Warfare series of shooter games, where he acts as a front line assault, or a hit and run attacker, dealing heavy splash damage with his primary weapon the Pea Cannon.

As with the other playable classes in the Garden Warfare series, he has numerous Character variants based on him, each having their own traits that differentiate them from the standard base character.

Peashooter appeared in the Chinese-exclusive turn-based game Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars, where he was the first plant in the Pea line. He evolved into Repeater and then into Gatling Pea. He attacked by firing one pea at an enemy per turn.

His active ability was Pea Barrage, which dealt a lot of damage to the closest enemy in his lane.

His soulmates were members of the Nut line for a damage boost, the Bomb line for a critical chance increase, and the Charm and Pepper lines for a damage boost.

Peashooter and the Pea line as a whole also served as the flagship plant line for Brave type plants and is the first line the player unlocks in the game.

Peashooter once again appears in the third-person shooter game Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. He is an PvZ BfN Attack Class Icon.png Attack class who specializes in combat versatility and explosive damage, via either his primary weapon or his Chili Bean Bomb ability.

Unlike in the Garden Warfare series, Peashooter no longer has any Character variants but instead has a large number of character upgrades, some of which grant abilities to Peashooter's primary weapon and abilities.

Plants vs. Zombies 3

Main article: Peashooter (PvZ3)


Peashooter's most recent appearance is in Plants vs. Zombies 3, where he reprises his role as a straight-shooting plant that is unlocked in the first level of the game. He also acts as the flagship plant for Shooter type plants.

Peashooter also serves as the main character for the game's story, where he appears alongside other plants such as Sunflower, Wall-Nut, and Bonk Choy. This is the first time in the series where Peashooter is given a personality and dialogue.
