Chomp Thing is a variant of the Chomper in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. He was introduced in the Legends of the Lawn DLC in Garden Warfare. His main ability is to regenerate health slightly faster than normal (in Garden Warfare)/ regenerating health almost immediately after taking damage (in Garden Warfare 2) and have a slightly increased regeneration speed.

In Garden Warfare 2, a single Chomp Thing appears as a boss in the "League of Awesome" quest, in which he has eaten Toxic Brainz and must be defeated in order to continue the said quest. Due to being a champion, he has more health than the average Chomp Thing (as he can withstand one ZPG shot without being vanquished).

Descriptions

Stickerbook description

Chomp Thing might seem kind of gross to you and me. After all, what kind of Plant spews mud and dirt and bugs? Well Chomp Thing doesn't care what you think! He thinks he's the best!

​In-game description

​Chomp Thing can regenerate his health slightly faster than your average Chomper!

Primary weapon

The primary weapon of the Chomp Thing is Swamp Spray. It deals 7.5 damage, and hits much more rapidly than other spray attacks. This variant also regenerates health sooner and faster than normal. He receives a damage upgrade to his primary weapon, unlike other Chompers.

Abilities

Goop

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

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.

Spikeweed

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.

Vampweed

An alternate ability of Spikeweed, Vampweed doesn't deal any damage, but it will heal you a total of 40 hp (10x4 hp) and still snaring zombies. Like the Spiky Spikeweed, only 2 can be stockpiled at a time.

Strategies

In the presence of the fast regeneration, Chomp Thing is a stealthy chomper, along with Count Chompula. Try to hide around corners, and attack the lone zombies or swallow zombies that are dragging behind in zombie groups. If you are forced into close quarters, flank and vanquish them quickly, then hide and regenerate your health. It is advised you to get the regeneration upgrade, for the quick regeneration time ability along with said upgrade results in quick recovery or escapes.

Balancing changes

Graveyard Variety Pack DLC

  • Digestion time was decreased after a chomp escape (i.e. victim got away using anti-chomp ability like Jackhammer).
  • Brought Chompers regeneration delay to parity with all other playable characters.
  • Fixed a bug where Chomp Thing’s health regeneration did not match his weapon description. He now regenerates health slightly sooner and faster than default.

Trouble in Zombopolis: Part One DLC

  • Tuned Chomper camera to be closer to that in Garden Warfare.
  • Improved all digestion time upgrade multipliers.
  • Chomp Thing now begins to regenerate health almost immediately after taking damage.

Trouble in Zombopolis: Part Two DLC

  • Damage was increased from 6.5 to 7.5.
  • Effectiveness of overheat was decreased.

Trials of Gnomus DLC

  • Health regeneration rate was increased from 50% faster to 75% faster than standard one.
  • Health was increased from 125 to 135.
