Spikeweed Sector is a galactic uncommon plant environment card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Guardian class. It costs 2 to play, and its ability does 2 damage to any zombie in it before the initial combat. This ability persists until Spikeweed Sector is removed from the field. Its closest zombie counterpart is Trapper Territory.
Its name is a combination of "Spikeweed," the Plants vs. Zombies plant it is based on, and "sector," referring to the fact that it is an environment.
- Class: Guardian
- Tribe: Root Environment
- Ability: Before combat here: Do 2 damage to a Zombie here.
- Set - Rarity: Galactic - Uncommon
Quite similar to the region known as Pokey Province.
This is a very useful environment as it can add damage on top of the plants' attacks here, helping you taking out tougher threats. What is even better about this is that its ability activates before combat and even the Overshoot trait, which means it can clear a path to your opponent for your plants to attack without them being scathed. Spikeweed Sector is especially good at countering the Crazy class, since most of the zombies there have low health.
Spikeweed Sector also works well with Anti-Hero and Bullseye plants (including Plantern), as it will clear the way for said traits to activate. The same goes with Invasive Species, except it has better stats but does not have any traits.
Try to refrain from playing zombies in Spikeweed Sector. This will only hurt them, and possibly destroy them if they have 2 health or less, which allows other plants to hurt you. Exceptions are zombies who benefit by either having a certain tribe of zombie or themselves hurt, such as Newspaper Zombie, Jester, Imp-Throwing Imp, Zombie Middle Manager (including other professional zombies) on the field, and Barrel of Deadbeards. Knight of the Living Dead is another special exception, as he is the only zombie to naturally not take harm in this environment
To deal with plants in such lanes, aim at playing tricks instead. Like any environment, you can also play an environment of your own to get rid of Spikeweed Sector.
- There is a visual glitch where one of the Spikeweeds' eyes are green like the rest of its body instead of yellow, or lack pupils. Sometimes, they are missing spikes.
- Sometimes, if the player looks at its statistics closely, a third eye can be seen below its right eye.
