For the Chinese version of the level, see Wild West - Day 22 (Chinese version).
This will always be remembered as The Great Chickening of 1850.

Penny

Wild West - Day 22 is the 22nd level of Wild West in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is a Locked and Loaded level. To complete this level, the player needs to survive with the given plants. When this level is finished for the first time, the player obtains a Wild West pinata.

Difficulty

The player will have some difficulty with this level. Being a Locked and Loaded level, the player cannot pick plants and must set up the given plants in order to defeat the zombie hoard. The problem with this level is the plants. Sunflower, Potato Mine, and Iceberg Lettuce are okay, but Repeater and Bloomerang are the main problems here. Because of their sun cost and power, they are relatively weak fighting against the zombie horde. In addition, Chicken Wrangler Zombie poses an ideal threat, as the plants given don't fight Zombie Chickens well. Bloomerang is the player's best method of dealing with Zombie Chickens. Poncho Zombie is also a big problem, as it appears early with the fast zombie waves. Winter Melon will greatly aid the player, as it will do splash heavy damage and slow down the zombie horde. However, the player should not rely on Winter Melons only, as they will need support for Zombie Chickens and to deal with countless Poncho Zombies.

Waves

The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Strategies

Strategy 1

  • First, plant Sunflowers around the carts. Then, plant Iceberg Lettuces and Potato Mines for the first few zombies. Plant Bloomerangs on the fourth and fifth columns.
  • Then, plant a Winter Melon on the most back cart and a Repeater on the second and third. The fourth cart is optional.

Strategy 2

  • Place Sunflowers in the open spaces between the second and third carts and the following lane. Defeat the first two zombies with Potato Mines, after temporarily freezing them with Iceberg Lettuce.
  • Use the sun you've accumulated to plant a Winter Melon on the first cart. After this point, set up Bloomerangs in the lane directly after your Sunflowers, and slowly replace your full Sunflower lane with more Bloomerangs. Move the Winter Melon when needed.
  • If you have enough sun, plant a Winter Melon in one of the two carts deep in your defenses, and put either a Repeater or Bloomerang in the remaining cart. The fourth cart can be safely ignored.

Trivia

  • In the pre 1.7 updates, the dialogue for beating this level would refer to "The Great Chickening...", which could be a possible reference point for The Chickening, a trick in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
