Trivia

  • For some reason, in Garden Ops, he will have the hair and goggles of a basic Scientist. One might think he is the normal Scientist, but has a different suit and weapon.
    • He is seen most of the time in the special wave "For Science."
    • Despite some zombies not wearing their default appearance, like the Engineer, it is actually impossible to customize the Physicist this way.
  • The description alludes two of the meanings of the word "conductor"; conducting a musical performance and the transfer of electricity through direct contact.
  • In Garden Warfare, the three Tesla Spheres on the end of the EMP Frazzle Launcher are aligned side by side in a line. After unlocking the Positronic Damage Blammer, the spheres are all connected in the shape of a triangle.
