Repeater is a peashooting plant appearing in Plants vs. Zombies 2. He costs 200 sun, twice the amount of a normal Peashooter and fires twice as many peas.

About

For more information about this character, see Repeater.

Repeater is obtained after beating Ancient Egypt - Day 19. He remains unchanged from his incarnation in the first game. In Beghouled, the Repeater is the upgrade of Peashooter. He costs 2000 sun. He can be further upgraded into stronger plants.

In the Chinese version, he could be purchased with 100,000 coins.

"Everyone always asks me if we've met before." says Repeater. "Everyone always asks me if we've met before. Wait, did I just say that?"


Chinese version  (China only)

    植物特征:绿色植物、豌豆家族

    如果你对双重射手好,他会加倍报答。如果你惹了他,那你可能会得到加倍的反击。当然他的人际关系相当好,大家最愿意做的就是借钱给他。

    In English:
    Plant feature: green plant, pea family

    If you treat Repeater well, he will treat you with double the respect; if you anger him, he will respond with double the pain. He has very good connections with people, but that's probably because everyone loves lending him money.

Upgrades

Plant Food effect

Plant Food ability (animated)

When fed Plant Food, Repeater will temporarily turn into a Gatling Pea, like Peashooter, but with a blue spiked corporal helmet. Repeater will then shoot 90 (60 in the Chinese version) peas, and then after turning red for a second, it fires a giant pea that deals 600 (400 in the Chinese version) damage.

Appease-mint effect

When boosted by Appease-mint, Repeater's peas deal an additional 120 DPS.

Strategies

While Repeater has not changed much during the transition to the new game, the loss of fire peas' splash damage capability has put a significant dent in Repeater's usefulness, as well as other peashooting plants'. This is only worsened by the increased number of enemies that can either block or deflect straight shooting projectiles, and the fact that Repeater faces competition from Fire Peashooter, which deals identical damage at a slightly cheaper price tag, can thaw nearby plants in Frostbite Caves, but does not benefit from Torchwood, and cannot deal damage to Imp Dragon Zombies, and the Pea Vine which, when in max level, deals higher damage than a max level Repeater on top of being able to be planted on other plants, despite having down to half the sun cost. In conclusion, while Repeater may have retained his profile throughout the games, he has failed to catch up with the changing environment and consequently dropped in usability.

A Repeater's Plant Food upgrade with the help of Torchwood's fire can kill a normal Gargantuar (90*2=180), and, if he is helped with Torchwood's napalm fire, he can even kill a Jurassic Gargantuar.

Note that the Chinese upgraded effects for this plant can be seen as contradictory, since it shoots fire, ice, and napalm peas at the same time, making the ice peas useless.

Trivia

  • The helmet seen during Repeater's Plant Food ability is a Stahlhelm, a steel helmet used by the German military in the two World Wars.
  • Formerly in the Chinese version, his Almanac entry is different. It is a reference to the fact that he was a money premium plant.
