One can utilize Peashooter's fast moving speed by making themself a hard target for the opponent to hit, moving side to side or by jumping a lot (Bunny Hoping) until the target is vanquished. Using Pea Suped will accomplish this task much more easily.


One needs to be careful when encountering a Peashooter as his primary weapon does a hefty 34 damage and has high splash damage which poses a risk even if you manage to avoid a direct hit. Try and keep your distance and take him out from afar, Peashooter's health is mediocre so it is only required to land a few hits to vanquish him. Stay away from tight spaces as Peashooter can deal quite a large amount of damage in a large area. The character you will need to be careful the most is the Imp with a measly health of 75 HP he can be easily vanquished by Peashooter.

Tips & Tricks

  • Since Peashooter has high splash damage, one doesn't need to worry too much about accuracy, as merely firing at the opponents feet will deal them damage.
  • It is possible use Pea Gatling in mid-air, combine this with Pea Suped and one can surprise the zombies with a Pea Gatling behind them.
  • It’s more effective to use Chili Bean Bomb while under the effects of Pea Suped to launch it farther.
