Captain Flameface is the Rare fire variant of Captain Deadbeard in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He was first revealed on December 7, 2015 in a video released in Facebook. His primary weapon stores less ammo than the Spyglass Shot/Scurvy Scattershot, in exchange for more damage, along with the fire effect. It is also capable of piercing through multiple targets, similar to Mob Cob. His primary weapon also wastes two ammo per shot out of its eight ammo clip.
Captain Flameface was making lunch, minding his own business, when he got his beard caught in the toaster. From that day forward, he decided to dedicate his life to the pursuit of the flame.
Shots from his Piercing Peg Shot pass through multiple targets!
- Reduced ranged rate of fire from 150 – 125
An ability similar to the Garlic Drone or Zombot Drone. When used, Captain Flameface creates a Parrot equipped with a telescope laser and explosives. The Parrot Pal has 20 HP and can only be used for a limited time. This replaces the Zombot Drone from the first game.
Captain Flameface will summon a cannon and then sits on top of it. The Cannon will then start shooting explosive cannonballs repeatedly. The cannon has 6 ammo.
Captain Flameface summons a barrel and hides inside it, lighting the fuse inside, and then detonates it to damage nearby plants, knocking himself into the air. The barrel also gives Captain Flameface reduced damage whilst he is in it.
- Him lighting his beard on fire might be a reference to the famous pirate captain Blackbeard, who liked to set fire to his beard via candles and other flames to scare his enemies.
- The short-range version of his weapon shares its name with the weapon of Flame Man from Mega Man 6, the Flame Blast.
- In addition, they both shoot short-ranged bursts of fire.
