The Berry Shooter is a master of vanquishes, and almost any player's strategy will suffice. For maximum effectiveness, it is recommended to get on very high ground, far away from enemies. At extreme long ranges, the Berry Shooter can still do 30 direct hit damage or 35 if hit in the head, and 15 splash damage. From here, the Zombies will stand no chance, and accept their imminent vanquish.
The Berry Shooter will win in almost all 1v1 situations. The best strategy is to make it a 2v1 battle, come up from behind, and deal damage before the Berry Shooter can retaliate. Try to use abilities that can give a quick boost to your mobility (such as Rocket Jump/Leap, Warp, Energy Warp, Jackhammer, Turbo Jackhammer) to trick the Berry Shooter. Never run straight to a Berry Shooter as it can easily land direct hits on zombies, vanquishing the player's character in seconds. The character that can be the closest to vanquishing Berry Shooters is the Marine Biologist. Its Warp can easily get close and the player can back attack them and vanquishing them very quickly before they turn around. However this tactic is extremely risky as the player can accidentally warp in front of the Berry Shooter and would be vanquished almost instantly. Camping is also a good tactic but Berry Shooters can snipe players with their massive splash radius and extreme damage.
With the damage nerf applied in the Legends Of The Lawn DLC, the normal Peashooter and the Berry Shooter are more or less identical in terms of damage, but their main difference is that, in exchange for slower firing and a significantly smaller magazine size, the Berry Shooter has a noticeably wider splash damage radius, requiring less accuracy but being less powerful against fast-moving targets.
- Once the player unlocks Berry Shooter, he or she will get all the upgrades without having to find them in sticker packs. The same happens with Citrus Cactus, Plasma Pea, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
- Berry Shooter is currently available immediately when opening the game due to him being a free give-away. This is true with all the other characters mentioned above.
- As of the 22.214.171.124 patch, the Berry Shooter was weakened, reducing damage and rate of fire.
- This was because he was considered overpowered beforehand as a bodyshot dealt a total of 40 damage and a headshot dealt a monstrous 45 damage, enough to kill an All-Star in just five hits.
- Agent Pea and Law Pea were also weakened as of the Legends of the Lawn update.
- Berry Shooter, Plasma Pea, Rock Pea and Electro Pea are the only Peashooter variants that do not shoot peas.
- The Berry Shooter's projectile is a cluster of berries.
- The first two are also the two Peashooters gained for free without needing to spend coins to earn sticker packs.
- Berry Shooter is the one of the four characters to be sponsored by a product. The others are Citrus Cactus, Chester Chomper, and Dr. Chester.
- In this case, it is sponsored by Aquafina FlavorSplash flavored drinks.
- Since he is a promotional plant, it is confirmed he will not return in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, this is also true with Chester Chomper, Dr. Chester, and Citrus Cactus.
- However, Rock Pea seems to be a potential replacement, given his low fire rate and high splash damage.
