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.

Cabbage-pult is the first offensive lobbed-shot available in both main Plants vs. Zombies games. It is featured in the Roof levels in the first game, and in Ancient Egypt in the second game.

Cabbage-pult lobs cabbages at half the fire rate of a normal Peashooter, but deals twice as much damage for each cabbage meaning that Cabbage-pult deals identical damage per second to Peashooter in practice. The cabbage projectile is also capable of bypassing obstructions such as the slope on the Roof levels and tombstones in Ancient Egypt and Dark Ages, as well as certain types of shields employed by the zombies and submerged Snorkel Zombies in Pool and Big Wave Beach.

Origins

Cabbage-pult is based on the real life cabbage, a popular cultivar of the species Brassica oleracea. Its name is a portmanteau of cabbage and catapult, a ballistic device used to hurl larges stones for warfare purpose in ancient times.

History

Cabbage-pult is obtained after completing Level 4-10.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Cabbage-pult is unlocked by completing Ancient Egypt - Day 2.

Strategies

Cabbage-pult is simply a lobbed-shot version of Peashooter, which is capable of dealing similar damage over time in a neutral environment. While the cabbage's lobbed-shot nature gives Cabbage-pult an edge in overcoming obstacles and hitting enemies behind shield, this is countered by a massive hit in potential firepower output, as Cabbage-pult does not benefit from Torchwood like Peashooter. Because of this, the problem present with Peashooter's firepower output is ultimately not only addressed, but also rather worse, and Cabbage-pult will be quickly outclassed by other plants as the game progresses.

When compared with Kernel-pult, another lobbed-shot plant with the same sun cost, Cabbage-pult benefits from having a higher damage output and not being reliant on the random number generator. On the other hand, Kernel-pult's butter can prove to be more devastating, especially when used in tandem with other offensive plants like Spikerock. Generally speaking, Cabbage-pult will be easier to use early on, while Kernel-pult can continue to be effective in the mid-game and late-game thanks to its stunning ability.

Plants vs. Zombies

Cabbage-pult is a useful plant on the Roof stages, since it will be the first projectile plant available to the player that can overcome the slopes. However, the player should plan to replace Cabbage-pult with more powerful lobbed-shot plants such as Melon-pult, or Fume-shroom with Coffee Bean (the latter combination will also help the player towards the Grounded achievement or be upgraded in Survival levels).

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Cabbage-pult is generally more useful as a starting plant compared to Peashooter, as it is capable of bypassing obstacles, such as tombstones in Ancient Egypt and the Dark Ages. Cabbage-pults can also be a good starter in the Pirate Seas, as they can defeat Barrel Roller Zombie without destroying the barrel first. However, it is advised to use Peashooters rather than Cabbage-pults in the Wild West and Frostbite Caves, since the slower rate of fire will hamper Cabbage-pult when combatting Zombie Chickens and Ice Weasels.

Cabbage-pult's Plant Food ability will be the first tool available that can affect all targets on the screen, regardless of zombie density. While it is relatively weak, as Conehead Zombies and other moderate-health zombies can absorb multiple hits from the Plant Food ability, it is reasonably useful for neutralizing large amounts of weaker enemies and clearing the way for more powerful offensive plants and can also be used as a life saver if there are many weak zombies about to reach the lawn mowers or house.

Trivia

General

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies

  • If a zombie is in front of a Cabbage-pult, the zombie will instantly get 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 Kernel-pult when throwing kernels.
  • Cabbage-pult is the only catapult plant that has no upgraded version

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies 2

  • "Harvest University" is a pun on Harvard University, one of the most prestigious universities in the United States, though Cob Cannon's entry referenced it directly.
  • In the game files of the Chinese version it has an unused level upgrade icon. This was probably a level 3 icon, but they reused the level 2 icon instead.
  • Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies, Plants vs. Zombies 2 gives the player the Cabbage-pult very early in the game while the first game introduces it near the end.
