Rocket Scientist's splash screen

Rocket Scientist is a Workshop Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 3, whom you first encounter at Floor 9 of Devour Tower. Upon reaching the seventh column, he launches over plants to the farthest column in order to attack from behind.

Origins

He is based on the Rocket Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.

His ability is also similar to Prospector Zombie's from Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Digger Zombie's from Plants vs. Zombies.

Strategies

Rocket Scientist is easy to deal with if you have plants that attack backwards, like Starfruit for example. However, as the game goes on in Devour Tower, he gets stronger.

He can be difficult to deal with at times, but mostly because of the player not having any plants that deal with backbiters. The player can prevent this from happening by planting on the eighth column, preventing him from rocketing to the back column.

Trivia

  • Unlike his counterpart in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, he rockets to the back column, instead of simply getting a speed boost.
    • His appearance is also different, as he now wears a longer lab coat, a blue shirt, and a red tie. He also has two gloves instead of one. His mustache, rocket, and back hair are noticeably longer, and the rocket now has an actual fuse.
