Strategies

The Fire Cactus has a shorter range than the other Cacti, but that does not prevent her from serving as a long-range sniper by shooting fire needles at incoming zombies. The Fire Cactus' fire effect and above-average fire rate makes her more suitable for select scenarios in mid-range combat than the rest of the Cactus family, but on the contrary, she performs worse at long range and close range than the Camo Cactus and the Bandit Cactus respectively. Try sneaking up on a zombie and shoot at her, make sure you're not seen or else you will likely be vanquished. Be wary of the fact that this Cactus comes with the unlikely disadvantage of sticking out in nighttime maps, this trait easily ruins the Fire Cactus' main advantage, her long range, making sniping even more challenging due to the fact that zombies can see this Cactus from very far away.

This extreme disadvantage however has a somewhat unusual and almost crazy solution, this being her customization. The player can try by customizing the Fire Cactus with hats, organics and tattoos that cover up as much of the red-orange-yellow color and glow (while being preferably less visible), which can make sniping somewhat easier.

Trivia

  • If the player changes her default organic, they will become normal Cactus' hands. This applies to all Cactus variants.
  • She has been nerfed a total of three times. This makes her the most nerfed plant in the whole game.
