Chester Chomper is an exclusive variant of the Chomper in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. This Chomper digests slightly faster, about three seconds, instead of five seconds. The downside is that it has 25 less health than a default Chomper (125 or 150 if upgraded), much like Count Chompula. It is obtained by opening the Chester Chomper Character Pack.


Stickerbook description

Crazy Dave accidentally planted a chunk of cheese in his Zen garden. Next thing he knew, this dangerously cheesy Chomper had sprouted. He’s not sure where the sunglasses and goatee came from, though.

Primary weapon

Cheesy Chomp is the primary weapon of the Chester Chomper. It acts exactly the same as the normal Chomper's Chomp as it deals the same damage, 25, with the same rate of fire, except that when he eats a zombie, he will digest faster than most other Chompers.



Goop is Chompers' only "ranged" attack, purple goo is spit out. If an enemy is directly hit, they will take light amounts of damage over time, obtain lower speed (including turning around), and preventing the use of their abilities, making the zombie an easy target to chomp.


Burrow allows the Chomper burrows underground to cover a large distance quickly or to ambush zombies. Can easily be countered by Engineer's Sonic Grenade. While burrowing, the time remaining in burrow mode is displayed in a meter at the bottom of the screen, called Dig Power. Not moving will reduce the rate at which the Dig Power is consumed. The player may remain motionless once activating Burrow for approximately 15 seconds before being forced back to the surface.


Chomper deploys a Spikeweed, which snare zombies that step on it, making it defenseless from its adversaries and hung upside-down (deals 25x2 damage) for a short period of time or until being vanquished. Any zombies using improvised armor will have their armor destroyed by being caught in a Spikeweed, leaving them vulnerable. The Spikeweed can be damaged and destroyed by zombies. The player can have three Spikeweeds.

Super Sticky Goop

An alternate ability of Goop, Super Sticky Goop renders an enemy zombie unable to move, with the same reduced turn speed as normal goop. The downside is that the cool down is twice of the normal goop and its damage is halved.

Sprint Burrow

An alternate ability of Burrow, Sprint Burrow is just like Burrow, but faster and leaves the player underground with a shorter time.

Spiky Spikeweed

An alternate ability of Spikeweed, Spiky Spikeweed does increased damage to zombies caught for a total of 70 damage (35x2 damage). The downside is that only two can be stockpiled at a time, versus the regular three.

Cheesy Goop (GW1 only)

An alternate ability of Goop, Cheesy Goop deals much more damage than its two other counterparts (5 with 10 damage over time) however the ability has a much higher cooldown (double that of Goop, like Super Sticky Goop).

Weapon upgrades


Speed Shades

These shades are so cool that they've inexplicably increased the Chomper's movement speed.

Extra Spots

Little known fact: The number of spots on a Chomper is directly related to their ability to digest their dinner.

Sweet Goatee

A perfectly sculpted goatee provides unexpected (and unexplained) health benefits.

Unlocking method

Originally, the player had to buy a specially marked package of Cheetos at a Target store and redeem an included code. However, everyone who owned the game on September 5, 2014 got this and Dr. Chester as well as their abilities for free.




  • It is one of the four characters to be sponsored by a product. The others are Berry Shooter, Citrus Cactus, and Dr. Chester, who's also sponsored by Cheetos.
  • It, Law Pea, Yeti Chomper, and Unicorn Chomper are the only plants to have hair.
    • However, Law Pea and Chester Chomper are the only plants that have said hair represented as facial hair.
    • The digestion upgrade from Garden Warfare 2 can technically be called the replacement of this character as they allow the Chomper to digest as quickly (or even quickly with both equipped) as this character did.
