BBQ Corn is the fire Rare variant of Kernel Corn in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. The BBQ Corn looks like the original Kernel Corn, except his corn cobs are more orange in color and they have visible flames emanating from them like all fire-based plants. A large portion of his body is covered in aluminium foil stained with barbecue sauce. The BBQ Corn also wears a checkered bandanna and he has pastry brushes for feet which are also stained with barbecue sauce. He was first revealed in the gameplay of the September 2015 developer diary, and later previewed in a short gameplay of the Backyard Battleground.

Descriptions

Stickerbook description

"BBQ Corn is one spicy customer. The only thing he takes more seriously than grilling is protecting his fellow Plants. Good thing then, that the sound of crinkling aluminium foil drives Zombies crazy."

In-game description

His fully automatic Spicy Hot Shot ignites Zombies, dealing fire damage over time.

Abilities

Butter Barrage

Kernel Corn tosses a Hot Potato. A massive amount of butter is deployed from the sky in an "x" shape wherever it lands.

Husk Hop

Kernel Corn leaps into the air in a forward distance while firing his Cob Busters directly below him which damages any target below him.

Shuck Shot

Similar to ZPG, Kernel Corn fires 2 big cobs straight in front of him. It does massive damage and is capable of instantly vanquishing anything it hits (except for Z-Mechs), if the cobs manage to score a direct hit.

Bigger, Better Butter

Revealed in a live stream, it is the alternative ability to the Butter Barrage. Kernel Corn tosses a Hot Potato, but one giant piece of butter falls from the sky where it landed, which then makes a large explosion.

Strategies

The BBQ Corn's primary weapon is comparable to the Fire Flower's Flame Pulse, possessing identical clip size and damage. The only thing that is different between the two plants is that the BBQ Corn is not as agile as the Fire Flower (in exchange for slightly higher health) and he does not possess the Fire Flower's self-healing power (in exchange for having more damaging abilities). As such, the BBQ Corn is ideal for attacking large hordes of zombies. A player using the BBQ Corn can keep switching between multiple targets to keep them on fire and let the fire effect chip away at their health while steadily wearing them down. As such, the BBQ Corn is also useful in Herbal Assault for harassing the zombies defending the objective and overall weakening their defense. Get to a vantage point or an otherwise good position, take potshots and jump in and out of cover to repeatedly ignite the zombies and let the fire damage wear them down. The BBQ Corn can be useful for putting up pressure on Scientists that are trying to heal their allies since if you keep on igniting the zombies and spread out your damage to the entire zombie team, the Scientists might end up with more injured zombies than what they can heal. To maximize the effect, destroy all sources of healing (Zombie Heal Station and Dr. Heals) from a range.

Trivia

  • In the Trouble in Zombopolis Part One DLC, his clip size was reduced by 5.
  • His legs are actually sauce brushes, which are used when grilling to apply sauce to a food.
    • He is even possible to hear the sauce squishing as he walks.
  • His close range damage was decreased in the August 2, 2016 balance patch, to make him align more with the other corn variants.
