Foot Soldier Zombie is a premium uncommon zombie card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Crazy class. It costs 5 to play, and has 3/4. It does not have any traits, and his ability does 3 damage to a selected plant or the plant hero when it is played on the heights. Its plant counterpart is Bluesberry.
Its description references to how the Foot Soldier only wears one shoe.
Its ability is a reference to the fact that Foot Soldiers are commonly seen on rooftops and in high places in the Garden Warfare games, due to their Rocket Jump ability.

Each Foot Soldier Zombie shall be issued one (1) combat foot.
While having below average stats for a 5 zombie, Foot Soldier Zombie's ability to hurt any plant or the plant hero and possibly finishing them off is a very handy thing to have. Using this ability against plants that activate their abilities on zombies on their lanes, such as Potato Mine and Guacodile, can render them useless if there is no zombie currently occupying their lane. 3 damage is also enough to eliminate threats such as Sportacus, Mayflower, Cosmic Nut, and Black-Eyed Pea.
However, Foot Soldier Zombie's ability only activates when it is played on a heights lane. Therefore, its usefulness varies on the number of heights lanes on the field; the more, the better.
Foot Soldier Zombie can easily be destroyed using Whack-a-Zombie if you are using a Solar hero, or any plant with 4 or more. You can lower its stats if you think you can handle it. If it gets boosted, you can use Squash on it, or as a Guardian hero, Shamrocket.
Since Foot Soldier Zombie's ability happens when it is played on the heights lane, try playing a powerful plant on the heights lane so the zombie hero is discouraged to play it there and activate his ability. Make sure it has 6 or more health, otherwise the zombie hero may be able to take it out. Another good idea is to use Sweet Potato, Hot Date or Whipvine to move a zombie to the heights lane, preventing Foot Soldier Zombie from being able to activate its ability.
