For other uses, see Wall-nut (disambiguation).

Wall-nut is the first defensive plant obtained in Plants vs. Zombies 2 and the third unlocked overall. He acts as a shield for the player's other plants, as he has high durability. He is mainly used to stall or block zombies in order to buy time for the player to plant an offensive plant, or for offensive plants to take out zombies with high health.

Other variations

Explode-O-Nut

In Plants vs. Zombies 2, Explode-O-Nut returns as a premium plant. It now acts more like a Wall-nut, with less health but the additional effect of a damaging explosion similar to a Cherry Bomb when it is eaten.

Strategies

Wall-nut works exactly like it does in Plants vs. Zombies, and thus should be used the same here. The old strategies of Wall-nut with Spikeweed, Spikerock, and Chomper are still effective in this game, and with the addition of melee plants such as Bonk Choy and Snapdragon, Wall-nut has more options of plants to defend.

However, he is also easily outclassed, especially by his primal variation and Pea-nut, the former who can recharge quicker and the latter who can also defend themselves. Wall-nut is cheaper than these two though, so he still has use in levels such as those where only a certain amount of sun can be used.

Trivia

  • He is one of the six plants seen in the trailer of Plants vs. Zombies 2 fighting the zombies, the other five are Bonk Choy, Bloomerang, Peashooter, Pea Pod, and Sunflower.
  • His Almanac entry mentions that Wall-nut is a retired bowler, which is a reference to the Wall-nut Bowling mini-games from the first game.
  • If the player plants a Wall-nut on a minecart, the Shell on Wheels achievement will be earned.
  • He, along with Peashooter and Sunflower, are the only plants whose costumes change depending on the season.
    • They are also the only plants who do not have a permanent costume.
  • In the 1.9 update, there was a texture glitch for Wall-nut's eyes, along with the Snow Pea, Threepeater, and Twin Sunflower.
  • If the player has a boosted Wall-nut and places him on an already damaged Wall-nut, the boost will not activate. This is shared with all defensive plants.
