Plants vs. Zombies Wiki

The Zombies are a group of characters in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. The goal of the game is to take over the garden, get vanquishes, steal Tacos, or set Gnome Bombs depending on the game mode. There are four playable zombie classes, Foot Soldier, Engineer, Scientist, and All-Star.


The zombies serve as one of the two playable factions present, alongside the plants. They are playable in Team Vanquish and Gardens & Graveyards, but in Garden Ops, normal non-playable zombies are present over the playable variations.

In Gardens & Graveyards and Taco Bandits, NPC zombies can be summoned during the fight to help Vanquish the plants, and are refilled with Sticker Packs purchased from the Sticker Shop.
