Sling Pea is a premium plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that was introduced in the 7.0.1 update. He fires five peas, targeting the five zombies closest to your house each time, similar to Homing Thistle. These peas do 20 dps, and have 5 dps worth of splash damage on the tile they land on.

Sling Pea requires 250 seed packets to unlock for free. The player can do so by replaying Dark Ages levels (if the Piñata Tracker is available) or going to the store to buy piñatas that contain Sling Pea seed packets or play piñata parties in Food Fight Event. There is also a Sling Pea bundle in the store that'll give the player 250 seed packets to unlock automatically.

A real life example of peas, the plant that Sling Pea is based on

Like most other peashooting plants, he is based on the Pisum sativum, commonly known as the pea.

His name is a combination of "sling" and "pea"; and possibly a portmanteau of "sling" and "string pea"

Sling Pea



FAMILY: Arma-mint

Sling Peas fire 5 peas in a burst, targeting the zombies closest to your house each time.

Sling Pea keeps a keen eye on the whole battle space. He's alert and attentive. "If something slips through," he muses quietly, "it would be my fault. And I just couldn't forgive myself if that happened."


Plant Food effect

When fed Plant Food, Sling Pea will fire 5 massive peas at the closest zombie to the house three times, launching 15 peas in total.

Arma-mint effect

When boosted by Arma-mint, Sling Pea will have an additional 65 DPS added to its peas, its splash damage will have an additional 30 DPS added on to it, its Plant Food attack will receive an additional 75 DPS, it will receive a splash damage of 30 DPS on its Plant Food attack, and the stun duration on its plant food attack will be increased to 1.5 seconds.

Sling Pea is basically like a Peashooter mixed with a Homing Thistle as he will only attack the closest zombies to the house. Like most lobbed-shot plants, you can use Sling Pea to avoid the tombstones, as well as avoiding hitting Excavator Zombie's shovel. Arma-mint and Sling Pea work well together as Arma-mint will boost Sling Pea's damage and health. You can also pair him with area of effect plants such as Winter Melon and Laser Bean that can wipe out groups of weaker zombies while the Sling Peas work on the more durable threats.

Because of Sling Pea's fast recharge, semi-low sun cost, and full range over the entire board, it is generally a good option to set up a few Sling Peas to take care of the first few sets of zombies that walk onto the lawn, allowing the player to save their sun for more expensive plants for when the zombie waves get denser.

The Sling Pea does have several different zombies that really show his faults, Jester Zombies and Parasol Zombies can easily counter Sling Pea, as Jester Zombie will fling back Sling Pea's projectiles, while Parasol Zombie will make the lobbed peas bounce off her parasol. Secondly, despite it being able to shoot multiple projectiles, he is not very effective against Zombie Chickens and Ice Weasels because of his low firing rate and bad precision. His targeting is also glitched, so he will target the zombies who enter the lawn first, regardless of speed. Thus he is not useful against surprise attacks and imps fired close to your house.

Take note that Sling Pea does not benefit from Torchwood even though he shoots regular peas, because Sling Pea is a lobbed-shot plant.

He is not very useful in Battlez because he will only attack the zombies that are closest to the house, resulting in less points from the zombies killed. However, this will only happen when there are groups of zombies or fast-moving zombies, such as All-Star Zombie.
