Being a 3/3 zombie for 4, it is a little expensive, as there are cheaper alternatives. Due its somewhat low stats, you should use it as either a glass cannon, or just a deadly zombie - find an open lane, or a strong, buffed plant to use it effectively. This zombie combos well with Valkyrie, as this zombie could be used in order to kill a strong plant, then it will die and leave the two Swabbies whose would be killed sooner or later, and have Valkyrie get 6. You can do the same thing when there is an Unlife of the Party on the field, as it would benefit from the Swabbies including Barrel Roller Zombie itself.
Due to having the deadly trait and low health, there is little to no reason to use a strong plant against it. Instead, if you have the opportunity, kill it indirectly with tricks, such as Berry Blast, as it would end it without making you lose a potentially useful plant. Plants with the Splash Damage trait are also preferable, as they can hit this zombie even if they are not on its lane.
- The barrel is way smaller than the counterpart in Plants vs. Zombies 2, as the barrel here is the size of the Barrel Roller's head while the version in Plants vs. Zombies 2 is twice the size of the Barrel Roller's head.
