Plasma Pea is a Rare variant of the Peashooter in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He was designed by a player named Lefran Esteran and this plant successfully won first place in a contest for a new variant for the Peashooter class.

On the PC, he was released in the Suburbination DLC. His weapon is the Plasmic Disruptor, which is unique in the way that the Plasma Pea can charge up each shot before firing which increases the impact damage, the splash damage, and the splash damage radius. For PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 players, the Plasma Pea was released in the Legends of the Lawn DLC.

Strategies

The ability to charge up shots and deal up to 70 damage per shot makes Plasma Pea excel at both crowd control and precision elimination. Shooting into the middle of the group can deal up to 20 damage to each member, making this variant ideal when providing harassing or suppression fire at a group of zombies at long or mid range. In addition to that, when dealing with a singular, mostly immobile zombie at long range, Plasma Pea may succeed where other Peashooters fail as the 70 damage can be used to take out zombie snipers before they have a chance to duck in behind cover, or at least severely weaken them, the charged shots are also good for taking down All-Stars and for supporting your team by destroying any Dummy Shields they deploy. Conversely, Plasma Pea becomes slightly less useful at mid or close range since each pea deals about 20 damage for a direct hit (all direct hits are critical, headshots or not) and 10 damage for the indirect splash damage. However, the Plasmic Disruptor has a noticeably faster rate of fire. Also, be careful when charging up a shot in the open when nothing is happening as the light generated from the charge-up can make you visible to the zombies (like Camo Rangers). This is especially true on nighttime maps where the Plasma Pea's glare and flash effects can be seen from afar.

Balancing changes

Trials of Gnomus DLC

  • Added 15 splash damage with a 4.5 meter radius to a non-character impact for fully charged shot. This does not affect his direct impact damage.

Trivia

  • In Garden Warfare, once the player unlocks him, they will automatically get all the upgrades without having to get them manually via sticker packs. The same happens with Berry ShooterCitrus CactusChester Chomper, and Dr. Chester. Out of these, he is the only one that is not promotional.
    • These are also the two Peashooters gained for free without buying sticker packs.
  • If the fully charged shot directly hits a zombie, it instantly explodes, otherwise there is a slight delay between the impact and the explosion.
    • The explosion sounds like glass shattering.
  • He is one of the seven plants that can charge up their attack. The other six are Mystic Flower, Future Cactus, Electro Citron, Fire Rose, Frost Rose and Nec'Rose.
  • The Plasma Pea can shoot slightly faster than other Peashooter variants except Commando Pea and a few others.
Lefran proof

A post by the creator showing it was not meant to be plasma-related in the first place

  • As told by the creator, Lefran, he meant to make him more of blue star-based peashooter and it was not meant to be plasma-related in the first place.
    • It is also stated that the creator prefers the "plasma" idea.
    • The creator's version of Plasma Pea appears to be related to electricity, since some lightning appears to emit from the zombies when hit or when his projectile explodes and the peas leave a trail behind themselves that resembles lightning.
  • He is one of two charge shot plants that can jump while charging, the others being Electro Citron, and formerly along with Fire Rose and Frost Rose (both of which were able to jump before the Graveyard Variety Pack DLC).
  • In Garden Warfare 2, he was redesigned to be lighter and more purplish blue, and his eyes no longer glow white.
    • He was likely redesigned to prevent confusion between him and Electro Pea.
    • This also makes him the only DLC character from the first game to be redesigned overall.
  • He is the only charging variant that does not take up ammo in Garden Warfare 2.
    • He also retains the upgrades that came with him from the pack from Garden Warfare, making way for additional upgrades in Garden Warfare 2.
