Coconut Cannon2

Coconut Cannon is the fifth plant obtained in Pirate Seas in Plants vs. Zombies 2. The player can tap on the Coconut Cannon to fire a coconut in a straight line. Upon impact with a zombie, the coconut will explode, dealing 45 normal damage shots to the initial target as well as 15 normal damage shots to all enemies in a 3x2 area around him. After firing, Coconut Cannon will have to wait for 16 seconds before he can fire again.

Coconut Cannon's main asset is his high splash damage capability - thanks to this, Coconut Cannon can be used to take down large groups of zombies with ease, especially in Endless Zone levels where enough Coconut Cannons can be purchased to allow the player to have a constant source of firepower. However, this is balanced by a massive sun cost and cooldown time between shots, which makes Coconut Cannon less practical in normal levels. Coconut Cannon can also be outclassed by Strawburst later on, which can deal even more impressive amount of splash damage, though Strawburst also requires tons of time in order to have higher capability of dealing heavy damage.

Coconut Cannon is particularly useful when planted on minecarts in Wild West, as the player can relocate him to fire on lanes with concentrated amount of zombies, instead of having to plant multiple Coconut Cannons. His Plant Food ability can also be used to push zombies back to prevent a single lane from being overrun, although the Plant Food ability should not be used in Ancient Egypt and Dark Ages if there are tombstones in the same row, as they can block the giant coconut and protect zombies behind them.

Avoid using Coconut Cannon against Jester Zombies in the Dark Ages. Not only will the Jester throw back the coconut, taking no damage, but the damage from the coconut is enough to insta-kill any plant other than most defensive plants, although his Plant Food ability cannot be reflected by Jester Zombie.

Coconut Cannon is a great plant in emergency situations, as firing them and shoveling them up right afterwards, assuming all the shovel refund upgrades are obtained, only cost the player 100 sun. This method gives Coconut Cannon great potential against large groups of strong zombies, such as Knight Zombies.

Taking down an Imp Cannon in Pirate Seas with a Coconut Cannon will net the player the Broadside achievement. This tactic is not recommended however, as there is rarely a clear line of sight for Coconut Cannon to fire due to the other zombies advancing, especially the Imp Pirate Zombies being constantly fired from the Imp Cannon.

Wild West - Day 20

Coconut Cannon is given in the eighth wave of Wild West - Day 20, a Not OK Corral level, if two or more plants were lost beforehand and is required to deal with the massive amount of zombies in the later portion of the level, particularly the Buckethead Zombies. However, if no plant was lost, there is a chance that he will be replaced by a Repeater, which will make completing the level much more difficult. Thus, it is strongly advised that the player resets the level if they did not get the Coconut Cannon.

Coconut Cannon2


  • This is the first plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 that is activated by touch. The second was Magnifying Grass, then Banana Launcher, followed by Strawburst, and finally Jack O' Lantern.
  • If Plant Food is given to the Coconut Cannon and a tombstone is in the same lane, the bomb will explode when it touches the tombstone.
  • In the Chinese version, the third level Plant Food will play Symphony No. 9 by Beethoven, which is an Easter egg referencing Extreme Fever from Peggle.
  • When watered in the Zen Garden, Coconut Cannon's fuse will be extinguished. The same happens to Torchwood, Pepper-pult, Fire Peashooter, Lava Guava and Jack O' Lantern with their flames.
  • If an Imp Cannon is destroyed by Coconut Cannon, the player will get the Broadside achievement.
  • The bullet that Coconut Cannon shoots for his costumed Plant Food ability in the Chinese version looks very similar to the Banzai Bill from the Super Mario series.
  • His projectiles can destroy an Excavator Zombie's shovel if enough splash damage is dealt. However, Excavator Zombie is still immune to Coconut Cannon's coconuts if they directly hit him.
