Plants are characters in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. The goal of the game is to defend gardens, vanquish zombies, or set gnome bombs, depending on the game mode.

Playable plants

There are four playable plant classes: Peashooter, Chomper, Cactus, and Sunflower. All four have different abilities with different perks to using them. In a traditional shooter game, Peashooter serves as the basic assault class, Sunflower serves as the healer class, Chomper serves as the melee class, Cactus serves as the sniper class, and Crazy Dave serves as the boss class.

Variant plants

Each playable character class has six variants or more that give the base class a perk. The variants also differ slightly in appearance. Unlocking the variants is done through purchasing sticker packs from the Sticker Shop. Lower cost packs will result in single pieces being obtained randomly, more expensive ones will yield multiple pieces for different characters while the most expensive sticker pack will fully unlock a random new variant.
