Peashooter is a Common Shooter plant in Plants vs. Zombies 3. It fires peas at the first zombie in his lane. It is one of few plants that are available from the beginning of the game.


For more information about this character, see Peashooter

Peashooter is one of the first plants the player obtains, and the first one the player is allowed to plant in the tutorial.

It costs 3 sun and it attacks zombies by firing peas in the lane it is planted in. It can only attack one zombie at a time, however.

It is also a main character in the game's story alongside other plants such as Sunflower, Wall-Nut and Bonk Choy.



It is based on the plant of the same name from the original game and its sequel.

Its Tacobility is also based on the plant of the same name and appearance.

Plant Food effect

Peashooter's Plant Food ability is named Rapid Fire, in which Peashooter will fire 50 peas in rapid succession in the lane he is planted in, dealing a large amount of damage to any zombies hit with them. This can be upgraded to allow even more peas to be fired at a time.

As with all previous games, Peashooter is a cheap, easy, and reliable plant that is easily able to take out several standard zombies for a very little amount of sun.

However, with most games it appears in, it is easily outclassed by several other plants, both in terms of ability and damage, and are often the more preferred choice in later levels as more plants are unlocked and threatening zombies with more demanding abilities and traits will be encountered and fought.

Even though Peashooter may not be the most optimal choice when deciding a team, he still serves a purpose as an early use plant due to low cost and temporary form of attack while more powerful (and more costly) plants are not available.
