Strategies

With

Being a 3StrengthPvZH/3HeartPvZH zombie for 4BrainPvZH, he is a little expensive, as there are cheaper alternatives. Due to his somewhat low stats, you should use him as either a glass cannon, or just a PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombie - find an open lane, or a strong, boosted plant to use him effectively. You can also use this as a defensive zombie as making Swabbies may block attacks from strong plants that are close together, even aquatic lanes as Swabbies have the Amphibious trait.

This zombie combos well with Valkyrie, as this zombie could be used in order to destroyed a strong plant, then he will be destroyed and leave the two Swabbies who would be destroyed sooner or later, and have Valkyrie get 6StrengthPvZH. You can do the same thing when there is an Unlife of the Party on the field, as he would benefit from the Swabbies including Barrel Roller Zombie himself. Ideally, the best lane to use this on is the 4th lane, as the aquatic lane will be next door, so when this is destroyed, a Swabbie will appear in the aquatic lane. This could offer potential back-up in the aquatic lane against plants like Admiral Navy Bean, or a chance to have a zombie in the aquatic lane doing damage. However, if this zombie is used just for the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait, Smelly Zombie is a better alternative, as he is cheaper, has more health, and has the Gravestone trait, meaning he is immune to all plant tricks except for Grave Buster.

Because this zombie and the Swabbies made by him are pirate zombies, he can be used with Swashbuckler Zombie to boost all 3 of them. Due to Swabbie being an Imp as well, he also synergises well with Toxic Waste Imp and Imp Commander, provided he is destroyed.

Against

Due to having the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait and low health, there is little to no reason to use a strong plant against it. Instead, if you have the opportunity, destroy him indirectly with tricks, such as Berry Blast, as he would be destroyed 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 his lane.

Trivia

  • The barrel is 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.
  • His PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait refers to him being able to crush plants in Plants vs. Zombies 2, and his ability to make Swabbies when he is destroyed refers to him having the ability to make Pirate Imps when his barrel is destroyed.
  • When Barrel Roller Zombie is destroyed, his barrel will break on his head, but the imps that come out appear as regular imps instead of Swabbies. Once going into the adjacent lanes, the imps appear as Swabbies.
  • Its description may be a reference to Gargantuars being an efficient way to transport Imps.
