Its name is a portmanteau between "peashooter" and "bee."

Beeshooter shoots bees butt-first. It may seem a little weird, but that’s okay. They have a system and it works for them.
Beeshooters are ideal for killing zombies either up-close or somewhat afar and have an excellent range with extra damage, compared to both Peashooters and Aspearagus. However, Beeshooters are not as useful as other plants because gems are required to be purchased to use Beeshooters. While it is true three Beeshooters are given to the player on Dire Spires Level 3, these are best used in the Player's Town and not used in Road Trip Mode, unless the player has a very tough time beating a level. The Beeshooter deals equivalent damage per bee as a Beet (two damage) headbutting a normal Zombie, and thus, can kill zombies twice as fast as Peashooters and slightly faster than an Aspearagus. They do the same damage as a Flaming Pea and are good against DJ Zom-Bs. The bees do not destroy ice blocks, so it is not necessarily better or worse than the Flaming Pea.
If the player decides not to buy any gems, they can afford up to five extra Beeshooters or can pair it up with two Power Flowers and buy two of them, along with two Beeshooters, instead of five Beeshooters.
While Plants vs. Zombies Adventures was in the closed beta stage of development, it was possible to get an infinite supply of Beeshooters for free by replaying Dire Spires Level 3 without moving on. After the game went into open beta, this exploit was fixed, and it is no longer possible to farm Beeshooters or other VIPs.
- It was one of two VIPs based on Peashooter, the other being Sweet Pea.
- Despite being a peashooting plant, it did not fire peas.
- Even though its Facebook description says it shot bees "butt-first," it actually shoots them head-first.
