Because the maps are randomized, you will have to memorize which maps have the plants or zombies attacking or defending. Once you do this, you can switch to the team you like best, either on the offense or defense. As for the mode itself, apply the same strategies as you would for the modes.
When the time runs out and the capturing team loses but partially captures the base, the garden/graveyard sinks into the ground.
There are three exclusive maps to Turf Takeover that can't be accessed in private or single-player matches, which are Great White North Night, Seeds of Time Night and Wall-nut Hills .
However, these maps are just reskins of Great White North and Seeds of Time, respectively.
There are no "night" reskins for the other maps because they occur during the nighttime.
