Started fighting Zombies in 2009... and never stopped.
The advantages of Peashooter is that it only costs 1 sun and is given at the start of the game. But other than that, it does not have any useful merits, so it should be replaced as soon as possible when you get stronger plant fighters such as Party Thyme or Bonk Choy while progressing through the game.
If you need to give this plant a boost, use Torchwood for extra strength at a cheap price. The Podfather can be used to boost it, as with all peas. Additionally, tricks such as Embiggen work too. However, saving these boosts for stronger plant fighters later in a battle may be more beneficial.
It is important to note that Pea Pod is a complete superior to Peashooter, as they are essentially identical, yet the former has a useful ability which ramps its strength and health over time.
Clique Peas is also complete superior to Peashooter, as when played, they shuffle copies of them into your deck and boost their own stats as well as sun cost, so they can work in the late-game. They are also in an extra beneficial tribe too.
This plant is considerably easy to counter due to its low base stats and it lacking any traits or abilities, so you should be able to destroy this with almost every zombie fighter, or damaging tricks such as Nibble. However, if Torchwood or The Podfather is used with this, take caution, as this could easily become a minor threat for a cheap price. Fireworks Zombie and Barrel of Deadbeards can easily remove this from the field, assuming its health isn't boosted.
