Weed Out is an ability for the Wildflower in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. When activated, Wildflower summons a controllable Dandelion which can run up to enemies and manually explode. Its zombie counterpart is Yeti, Set, GO!

Origins

Its name is a play on the term "Weed out", meaning to remove from a group, typically objects of lower quality.

Description

Ability

Control a floaty friend who explodes on command.

Menu

Dandelions deal very close range explosive damage, but they have very little health. Use their high jump and slow decent to surprise your enemy.

Strategies

With

Similar to the Garlic Drone or Parrot Pal, this ability allows you to temporarily take control of a drone. It is important to know that you do not become the drone, like Acorn becoming Oak, you only get to control it. This means that you are vulnerable to attack while using it, and if you are attacked, you will be forced out of the ability.

Unlike the Garlic Drone, the Dandelion does not last for very long. This means that it can only be used against zombies that are relatively close to you. Make sure there are zombies nearby before using it, otherwise it will be completely wasted.

This ability does very high damage, so it's excellent at taking out enemies. However, keep in mind that it won't be able to completely destroy enemies with high health or ones that have armor, so make sure to attack them first then use this as a method of finishing them off.

Against

The Dandelion has very low health, not much more than the Garlic Drone, so it should be very easy to destroy. An unlike the Garlic Drone, it cannot fly, making it even easier to defeat. If you know that there is a Wildflower nearby, make sure to check your back at all times or else you could easily be killed instantly by this ability. Staying near teammates could be a good strategy as well: you can watch each other's backs, and if one of you gets killed, you can quickly revive them.
