Pisum sativum

Like most other pea-shooting plants, Threepeater is based on the pea plant (Pisum sativum). Its name is a portmanteau of "three", because it shoots 3 peas, and "Repeater", because it shoots more than a single pea at once like Repeater.


Plants vs. Zombies

Main article: Threepeater (PvZ)

Threepeater's first appearance was in the original Plants vs. Zombies game, as well as most Chinese spin-off games based on it. In this game, they are unlocked after beating Level 3-2 and fire three peas, one in their lane and one in row above them and below them. Threepeater is the most expensive non upgrade plant in the game.

Oddly enough, in the DS version of the game, Threepeater fires two peas in their row rather than just one, technically making them a Fourpeater.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Main article: Threepeater (PvZ2)

Threepeater returns in Plants vs. Zombies 2, now being 25 sun cheaper compared to the first game and is unlocked after beating Pirate Seas - Day 14. Threepeater faces competition in this game from Dusk Lobber and Apple Mortar, both cheaper than it with additional effects along with attacking in 3 lanes like they do. Dusk Lobber however needs another plant to achieve this while Apple Mortar is a premium plant, giving Threepeater some advantages over the two.

Plants vs. Zombies Heroes

Main article: Threepeater (PvZH)

Threepeater's latest appearance is in the turn-based mobile card game Plants vs. Zombies Heroes as a Basic Common plant in the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. They cost 5SunPvZH, have 1StrengthPvZH/5HeartPvZH stats and their ability is like the mainline games, attacking in its lane and those adjacent to it, similar to the Splash Damage trait, except all their shots can hit the zombie hero.

Due to its cost and class, Threepeater can struggle to find use in most decks, to the point that they are usually only usable in Green Shadow decks with the help of Torchwood and The Podfather to raise its low 1 strength to something higher and more efficient.
