Fire Peashooter is a fairly basic plant as far as 2-sun fighters go, due to its relatively average stats and lack of innate ability. However, Fire Peashooter's value lies in its tribe synergy. Being a pea plant, Fire Peashooter can benefit from Torchwood, as it can gain both offensive and defensive benefits by standing behind the plant in question. It can also benefit from The Podfather, as it gets +2/+2 when the latter is already on the field. Using both could be even better, as while you need both Torchwood and the Podfather to survive until turn 4, Fire Peashooter is able to do a whopping 7 damage per attack, possibly to the hero. If it gets to that point, you can then use Espresso Fiesta to finish off the zombie hero unless they block an attack. Otherwise, Fire Peashooter should be treated as Zapricot with less strength, as opposed to more durable plants such as Pismashio. It is also a turn 2 counter to Arm Wrestler.
As Fire Peashooter has a relatively low amount of health, anything that could do at least 2 damage should be able to take it down with little cost. A Fire Peashooter + Torchwood combo, however, is a different story, and you should consider using Strikethrough zombies like Hot Dog Imp, instant-kill tricks like B-flat, Rocket Science, or Locust Swarm, damaging tricks such as Bungee Plumber or The Chickening, or cards with plant-moving abilities such as Sumo Wrestler or Terrify to deal with it. Beam Me Up is also a good counter to this plant if unaccompanied by Torchwood, since both cancel each other out.
- Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies 2, Torchwood can increase its strength.
- However, feeding Torchwood Plant Food in Plants vs. Zombies 2 can increase Fire Peashooter's damage slightly.
