Repeater is obtained after beating Ancient Egypt - Day 19. He remains unchanged from his incarnation in the first game, having the same recharge speed and having the cost of 200 sun. In Beghouled, the Repeater is the upgrade of Peashooter. He costs 2000 sun and can be further upgraded into stronger plants.
In the Chinese version, he could be purchased with 100,000 coins.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.
SUN COST: 200

"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?"
Plant Food effect
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.

- Chance to Boost
- Damage Pierce
Any peas fired by Repeater with his Plant Food ability has a chance to be a fire, napalm or frozen pea.
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. 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.
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.

- 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.
