Strategies

Bloomerang is an easy-to-use and a versatile plant, as it can reliably take care of multiple zombies at once. However, Laser Bean is clearly the more economical choice, costing only 25 more sun, it can hit every zombie in its lane at once and do twice the damage.

In regular levels, two columns along with a column of Bonk Choys or Snapdragons, and a column of Wall-nuts or Tall-nuts can take care of the zombies almost perfectly. However, one has to be careful that it can only take care of three zombies at once and is not a substitute for a Fume-shroom or Laser Bean. Therefore, it is not a reliable weapon against overly massive amounts of zombies. Its attacking power is also quite low despite hitting twice, as its firing speed is half that of a Peashooter's and its Plant Food upgrade deals less damage than that of a Peashooter, and thus adequate support is needed.

It can be a good strategy to use Bloomerang when there are many tombstones in Ancient Egypt's levels (especially Pyramid of Doom) so that the three first graves gets two hits at each boomerang thrown.

Trivia

  • It is the first new plant in the game, and its Almanac entry references this.
  • Its boomerangs are actually its petals.
  • Bloomerang fires very slow at first, but then at normal speed after firing the first boomerang.
  • If the player looks closely, they will see that it has nine boomerangs. Surprisingly, it still has nine even after throwing one, using Plant Food, or catching a returning boomerang. It it unknown why this happens.
  • When this plant attacks tombstones of Ancient Egypt, the tombstones glow a red color.
  • Its name is a portmanteau of "boomerang" and "bloom".
  • This is one of the six plants seen in the trailer of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time while fighting the zombies, the other five are Bonk Choy, Pea Pod, Peashooter, Wall-nut, and Sunflower.
  • If three zombies are near the Bloomerang, the boomerang only goes to where the last zombie is and comes back.
  • In Bloomerang's Almanac entry, Bob Barley is a pun on Bob Marley, who was a Jamaican songwriter.
  • Though the Plant Food upgrade of the Bloomerang will throw ten boomerangs in four directions, all pictures of the Bloomerang (including the animated picture in the Almanac) only show nine.
  • There are many references to Australia.
    • The projectile is based on the Boomerang, a weapon made in ancient Australia.
    • Its friend is a Koala Bear, an animal who lives in Australia.
    • The Almanac entry contains the phrase "out back". Outback is another term for the remote areas of Australia.
  • Jester Zombie can deflect its boomerang, but instead of taking damage from the boomerang, Bloomerang will grab it, nullifying the damage.
  • If a Bloomerang throws a boomerang, and the player digs it up, the boomerang with travel back off the screen and hit any zombies it passes. It cannot be deflected by Jester Zombies if this happens.
  • In a previous version of the Chinese version, Bloomerang does not catch its boomerangs, meaning they could hit zombies behind the Bloomerang as well. However, this is fixed in the latest version.
