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 and will also deal 15 normal damage shots to nearby zombies. It then requires a cooldown period of 16 seconds to fire again.

Plant Food Upgrade

The Coconut Cannon's Plant Food upgrade is that it releases a gigantic coconut, pushing all zombies to the right of the screen, and deals 60 damage to all of them in a 3x3 area at the end. The upgrade can still be used during cooldown, but will start it if not.

Plant Food on a Coconut Cannon is not recommended to be used in Ancient Egypt, if there are graves in the same row. The coconut will not push the grave, but will explode instead, so tough zombies behind the grave such as Gargantuars will not be killed.

Almanac Entry


AREA: 3x3


Coconut Cannons fire down a single lane, causing a medium explosion on impact.

Usage: tap to fire

Special: On impact, explodes in medium area

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 as 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 before the 1.7 update)

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 six 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 Sun-shroom, the Kernel-pult, and the Melon-pult.
  • It is similar to the Cob Cannon, as both have elevated costs and one needs 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 in one shot, leaving it with 20 HP left.
  • In Ancient Egypt, 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.
  • Whenever a Coconut Cannon with its costume shoots out a coconut, its Hard Hat will also jump and slide down.
  • Coconut Cannon's Plant Food Boost can seem to be a huge detrimental. Its Plant Food ability is to fire a giant cannonball that deals 60 damage to each zombie on the lane, yet puts it to sleep, so it wil not have a charge to attack later zombies. This can make you lose in the higher levels in Endless Zones.
  • This is the most expensive plant in Pirate Seas.
  • Coconut Cannon's Plant Food Ability deals a massive damage on a 2x3 area from the first tile away from the cannon.
  • Coconut Cannon deals a very huge damage (same as Citron and Magnifying Grass) into the tile where it hits the zombie, and deals a moderate damage to zombies in a 3x3 area.
  • It is unknown why a Zombie Parrot dies when it is in the blast radius of a standard coconut's AoE explosion, as he takes 20 normal damage shots, and the AoE explosion does 15 normal damage shots.
