Peashooter is a plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2. He is a peashooting plant that shoots one pea every 1.5 seconds, dealing 20 damage per shot.

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 5.

Strategies

Peashooter mostly functions in the same way as the first game, being a plant with not too many pros or cons. However, usage of the Zen Garden will allow just one Peashooter to dispatch even a Buckethead Zombie with little trouble. Boosted Peashooters are quite cheap and very effective against zombies. After that, dig it up with Shovel Boost to get some sun refund or leave him to stall zombies. After the new update, plants may now level up. Once he reaches max level, the Peashooter can kill a basic zombie with two shots, and once in level 20 (max level for common plants) only costs 25 sun and gains lime-colored glowing peas trailing magical essence, with an approximate of 110 damage per shot. A lane of max level Peashooters can easily overwhelm a Gargantuar of any kind (better with Torchwood).

His true potential is kind of hard to find, however, as he will be outclassed by many other plants that you obtain later on. Here are some examples:

  • Snow Pea can slow down zombies (and has a chance to freeze them at a certain level) at the cost of 50 more sun.
  • Fire Peashooter can deal double damage per fire pea (has a chance to shoot napalm peas at a certain level) and can warm nearby plants, as well as being immune to freezing herself at the cost of 75 more sun.
  • Primal Peashooter can stun/knockback enemies at the cost of a slower firing rate and 75 more sun.

Trivia

  • He is one of the six plants seen in the trailer of Plants vs. Zombies 2 being shown fighting the zombies, the other five being Bonk Choy, Bloomerang, Pea Pod, Wall-nut, and Sunflower.
  • Even though a Peashooter is the first plant obtained, it is the second seed packet in the seed selection screen and in the Almanac.
  • He, along with Sunflower and Wall-nut, are the only plants whose costumes change depending on the season.
    • They are also the only plants who do not have permanent costumes.
  • The player can see a Peashooter's pea going through his stem before he fires.
    • a Peashooter's cheeks also puff up right before shooting, making it look like he actually "regurgitates" a pea and then "spits" it out instead of just shooting it.
    • Its Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars description outright states that he "attacks the enemy by spitting peas".
    • It might be because it seems to get its peas from the ground.
  • When Plant Food was used on the Peashooter while he was wearing his 2014 Halloween costume, the mask was still visible. This is opposed to many other plants, as their costumes disappear during their Plant Food effect.
  • He does his Zen Garden watering animation in the Neon Mixtape Tour - Side A Trailer, when he finished watching Cactus's performance.
