Rock Pea is the Rare armored variant of the Peashooter in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He was revealed on the Twitter page on December 3, 2015. His primary weapon is called Rock Shot, which has eight ammo, slightly higher splash damage, and a slower rate of fire. His trailer showcases the Boney Island map, as well as confirming the Peashooter's three original abilities to be returning. He was the only unlockable Peashooter variant in the beta.

Stickerbook description

"The Rock Pea's gruff and tough exterior may make him look like a tough guy, but really, he just wants a hug."

Abilities

Left abilities
Chili Bean BombGW2
Chili Bean Bomb
The Zombies often confuse the Chili Bean with Brainz, racing to eat it. It has a short fuse and deals massive damage to all nearby Zombies.
Sombrero Bean BombGW2
Sombrero Bean Bomb
Nothing says "hot" like a Chili Bean wearing a sombrero! The fuse is quite long, but the damage is mighty impressive. Timing is the key with this fun friend.
Dark Bean BombGW2
Dark Bean Bomb
These Dark Bean Bombs come in pairs. Perfect when you toss out a Bean, and then immediately need to toss out another!
Center abilities
Pea GatlingGW2
Pea Gatling
The Peashooter can dig into the ground and root himself in place, turning himself into a Pea Gatling. He can deal more damage, but is vulnerable to attack.
Retro GatlingGW2
Retro Gatling
Retro Pea Gatling uses the ancient Peashooter techniques of manually cranking out peas. Although it has a slower rate of fire, the peas are ancient and far more damaging.
Bling GatlingGW2
Bling Gatling
Bling Gatling Pea spits out sparkly bling peas, and he looks great doing it!
Right abilities
HyperGW2
Hyper
When a Peashooter uses his Hyper ability, he will not only run incredibly fast, but can also jump extremely high.
Super Pea JumpGW2
Super Pea Jump
The Super Pea Jump allows the Peashooter to get atop places he was unable to reach before, but at the tradeoff of speed.

Strategies

This is a great Peashooter for any player who enjoys heavy characters. His increased health, combined with good damage and Hyper, makes this plant very dangerous in the right hands. Remain mobile as you would with any Peashooter and use Hyper to jump around your opponents while bombarding them with shots. Do not hesitate to use the Pea Gatling if you find a good spot, as your increased health will make you harder to take down than other Peas. Always keep an eye on your health and remember that armored variants such as yourself aren't invincible. Learn when to run from a fight and find a healer. Try to focus on more close-ranged enemies as his weapon has steeper damage falloff than other peashooters. He is best played on defense as his higher health allows him to hold ground better.

Trivia

  • His ammo capacity is the same as that of the Berry Shooter.
    • In addition to that, his primary weapon behaves similarly to how the Berry Shooter's primary weapon (the Berry Blast) would.
  • His trailer shows him using two gestures.
    • The first has him dancing in a fashion similar to the "Sprinkler" move, ending with a move that resembles the form of a surfer while surfing. It is the new "Break it Down" gesture. However, the audio used is from the first game's gesture "Happy Dance."
    • The second is the "Aloha" gesture from the first game.
  • If the health upgrade is equipped, Rock Pea can survive a ZPG while in Pea Gatling at full health.
  • His peas could sometimes knock zombies back, similar to Primal Peashooter. However, it has been confirmed in the Trouble in Zombopolis: Part One DLC patch notes that this was a glitch.
  • He bears a resemblance to Ben Grimm, known as The Thing, from Fantastic Four.
