Coconut Cannon2

The Coconut Cannon is a plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time. Its usage involves tapping on it where it releases a coconut in a straight line in front of it where it will explode when it hits the first zombie doing splash damage in an area of approximately 2x2(half a square in each direction and the full center square). A direct hit from the Coconut Cannon deals exactly 45 normal damage shots. It then requires a cooldown period of 16 seconds. The attack will also deal 15 splash damage to the nearby zombies.

Plant Food Upgrade

The Coconut Cannons plant food upgrade is that it releases a gigantic coconut, pushing all zombies to the right of the screen doing incredible damage as well as killing each zombie in a 3x3 area at the end. The upgrade can still be used during cooldown, but will start it if not.

Sure, he's a hairy old man, but Coconut Cannon can still fire on all cylinders. The reason he's so hairy: he's in-between waxings.


Use the Coconut Cannon wisely during huge waves of zombies to do splash damage, as it has a 16 second recharge. This is usually unnecessary to use it in later stages, as there are numbers of zombies that can be considered tough. It also costs a lot of sun to place on your lawn so you should have a lot of sun production going if you want to use them.

You can delay Gargantuars with Coconut Cannon by placing it next to them, blow them up, and shovel it afterwards to get half of the profit (three-fourths if you have unlocked all Shovel Boost upgrades). This is also an effective strategy when dealing with them in large numbers to prevent further collateral damage. Its also useful for pushing them back with its Plant Food, which also does heavy damage to them and surronding zombies.

For those who are not using Grave Busters in Endless Zone, plant it on an adjacent tombstone, fire it away, then shovel it to get back enough sun. Repeat the same steps until the lawn is out of tombstones already.

They are useful in minecarts, you can use one Coconut Cannon to attack all the rows, so it saves a lot of sun.

Wild West - Day 20 (Not OK Corral 3)

The Coconut Cannon is given in the 8th wave of this level, and is required to deal with the massive amount of zombies in the later portion of the level. However, there is also a chance of getting a Repeater instead and this can make things much more difficult. Thus, It is strongly advised that the player resets the level if he/she does not get the Coconut Cannon.



  • The Coconut Cannon is one of the five plants that can be used before their seed packet is obtained without entering a Piñata Party, the others being the Threepeater, the Magnifying Grass,  the Kernel-pult, and the Melon-pult.
  • It is similar to Cob Cannon as both have elevated costs and you need to tap on it to fire.
    • However, Cob Cannon can shoot to any place, takes more time to fire and does massive damage.
    • The Coconut Cannon cannot kill a Buckethead Zombie, but just weaken it with 20 HP left.
    • In Ancient Egypt, when given Plant Food to the Coconut Cannon and a tombstone is in the lane, the bomb will explode when it touch the tombstone.
  • Whenever a Coconut Cannon with it's costume shoots out a coconut, the Hard Hat will also jump and slide down.
  • Coconut Cannon's Plant Food Boost can actually disbenefit you. Since its plant food ability has it fire a giant cannonball that kills every zombie on the lane, yet puts it to sleep, it won't have a charge to attack later zombies.
