Unlocked by:

Beating Ancient Egypt Day 2

The Cabbage-pult is the primary offensive plant for the early Roof levels, throwing cabbages every 3 seconds that deal 2 normal damage shots per-projectile to zombies. The Cabbage-pult sacrifices rate of fire for power, being twice as strong by projectile and shooting half as fast as a Peashooter, making them both deal the same amount of damage overall. Like all other lobbed-shot plants, it can damage Newspaper ZombiesScreen Door Zombies, Trash Can Zombies, and Ladder Zombies directly by ignoring their shields, and they can also hit Snorkel Zombies even while they are underwater. It can fire from the lower sections of the roof, letting the player fit more offensive power on the map. Overall, the Cabbage-pult has the same damage rate as the Peashooter, but is more versatile. The Cabbage-pult, along with the projectile, is a popular cultivar of the species Brassica oleracea (the cabbage). It is obtained after winning Level 4-10 in Plants vs. Zombies, and after beating Ancient Egypt - Day 2 in Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time.

Suburban Almanac Entry

Cabbage-pults hurl cabbages at the enemy.

Damage: normal

Range: lobbed

Cabbage-pult is okay with launching cabbages at zombies. It's what he's paid for, after all, and he's good at it. He just doesn't understand how the zombies get up on the roof in the first place.

Cost: 100

Recharge: fast

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

DAMAGE: Normal

RANGE: Lobbed

RECHARGE: Fast

Cabbage-pults hurl cabbages at the enemy.

Cabbage-pult received his doctorate in pulting from Harvest University. He knows a thing or two about launching his way to the top. He also makes a mean soup.

Plant Food Upgrade

The Cabbage-pult will shoot big Cabbages at all zombies and graves on the screen, dealing 10 normal damage shots to each.

Strategies

Plants vs. Zombies

Since it is more reliable than the Kernel-pult and cheaper than the Melon-pult, it makes a good basic weapon in the beginning of each level. However, on advanced or more difficult levels, seed packets are too valuable to waste on less powerful plants. When setting up a Survival Mode build, it is a good idea to use these instead of Peashooters, as you will be able to deal with Screen Door Zombies, Ladder Zombies and Newspaper Zombies immediately. This means that once you have both it and Kernel-pult, it is best to use them as a replacement of the Peashooter, although it mostly depends on preference. It is best to use the three catapult plants in conjunction, planting the Cabbage-pult, Kernel-pult, and finally Melon-pult in that order as you build up enough sun. This is most reliable on the Roof stages instead of Peashooters, as peas will splatter on the slope of the Roof.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

In the second game, it also is good as a starting plant. It is able to bypass any tombs in the way, good for advanced Pyramid of Doom levels as they are filled with Tombstones. Cabbage-pults can also be a good starter in the Pirate Seas as they can defeat Barrel Roller Zombie with out destroying the barrel first. It is advised to use Peashooters rather than Cabbage-pults in the Wild West because of its rate of fire being slower to deal with Zombie Chickens.

The Plant Food power-up is among the weakest of the game, and is only useful against large crowds of weak zombies. Considering how Conehead Zombies and other moderate-health zombies can take multiple hits from the Plant Food and still not be killed, meaning putting Plant Food on a Cabbage-pult is mostly a waste, except when is combined with Power Tiles because when three Cabbage-pults or more are in power tiles, and in only a Cabbage-pult is used plants, the Cabbage-pults are able to defeat multiple Conehead Zombies and weak multiple Buckethead Zombies.

Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • The Cabbage-pult is a simple, rather weak weapon and only useful at the start of the level.
  • Unlike Peashooters, the player cannot get a damage bonus from Torchwood.
  • It cannot be upgraded, unlike the other lobbed-shot plants.
  • It has half the speed of a Peashooter, like other lobbed-shot plants.
  • It isn't very good against Zombie Chickens, as the Cabbage-pult isn't fast enough to deal with many chickens.

Trivia

General

  • It is often compared to the Peashooter because of their same damage-per-second rate and the same sun cost.
  • Cabbage-pult, Bonk Choy, and Iceberg Lettuce are the only cabbages in the series.

Plants vs. Zombies

  • The Cabbage-pult is the only Lobbed-shot Plant that is not an upgradable plant or an Upgrade Plant, as Kernel-pult and Melon-pult can be upgraded while Winter Melon is an upgrade.
  • If a zombie is in front of a Cabbage-pult, the Zombie will instantly be hit by the cabbage instead of the cabbage being thrown in the air and falling on the zombie. This also happens with the other Lobbed-shot Plants, except the Kernel-pult when throwing Kernels.
  • All Lobbed-shot Plants have a different stem from each other. The Cabbage-pult has a bent stem, the Kernel-pult has a zig-zag like stem, and the Melon-pult has a vine for a stem.
  • The Cabbage-pult is the only Lobbed-shot Plant with a leaf on its stem.
  • The Cabbage-pult has the only projectile that fits perfectly in its catapult.
  • Like Crazy Dave, Cabbage-pult does not know how the zombies got on the Roof.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

  • Like the Melon-pult and Kernel-pult, Cabbage-pult's basket has changed. It is now more cabbage-like.
  • Cabbage-pult's leaf on its stem is gone.
  • Instead of four leaves as its base, the bottom is now a piece of cabbage.
  • It is a much darker shade of green now.
  • "Harvest University" is a pun on Harvard University, an elite law school.
  • It now bounces up and down during it's idle animation.
