Crazy Dave


Zombomb is a Gargantuar variant found in its own objective wave in Garden Ops in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. It holds a large bomb and will not target the plants, but will push them when in close. Instead, it will try to bomb the garden. When Crazy Dave says "STOP THAT ZOMBOMB!", the Zombomb will appear and slowly walk to the garden to blow it up. In Battle for Neighborville, 2 Zombombs in blue and yellow shirts will move towards the pickle enhancer when zombies are nearby. Its plant counterpart (in Garden Warfare 2 and Battle for Neighborville only) is the Squash.


  • Bomb: The player can get defeated instantly if they get too close to the Zombomb when he blows up near the garden.
  • Trample: Like the Zombie Yeti and the Gargantuar, the Zombomb can trample the player if they are too close to the Zombomb.


Its name is a portmanteau between the words "zombie" and "bomb."


The Zombomb has approximately 1800 health.


As Peashooter

Using the Chili Bean Bomb or the Sombrero Bean Bomb is the best choice. Do not get too close to it, or you will be launched away. Using the Pea Gatling is a good choice when it comes to a safe distance.

As Sunflower

The Sun Pulse or the Sunbeam is a good choice when you are far from it, but take care of the Browncoat Zombies while you are at it. You can use the Heal Flower + Sunbeam or Sun Pulse technique.

As Chomper

The Zombomb will not target you, so you have the advantage to shoot Goop at it, which will slow it down.

As Cactus

The Garlic Drone is recommended, so you can shoot at it from a secure distance. You can also drop Potato Mines on its path to deal damage to it.

As Rose

Slow the Zombomb down with Time Snare and keep firing.

As Kernel Corn

Fire everything you got, especially Shuck Shot. Jumping over it with Husk Hop is also a great way to stall and damage it.

As Citron

Keep firing your laser, but let go of the trigger before it overheats and wait for about a second before firing again. EMPeach it to keep it at bay and roll away if it gets dangerous.

As Night Cap

If many enemies are crowding the Zombomb, use Fung Fu to hit them all at once. Otherwise, just keep on firing. Use Casting Shadows or Shadow Sneak if your health gets too low.

As Snapdragon

Get up close and use Flame Blower until it is about to overheat, then wait for a moment and start again. Swoop Slam will help you get close to the Zombomb, while Blue Blazes and Blazing Trail will get some more damage in. It is not recommended to use Flare Ball, as it is not damaging enough.

As Acorn

Become an Oak so you're more powerful. While Acorn has Sap Trap, Oak has Super Sap Trap, which does much more damage. Wood Grief and Roll for Damage will help remove the Zombomb's health.


  • In Battle for Neighborville, his bomb becomes cracked and glows orange, he also drops it when vanquished, and it disappears instead of blowing up.
