Set a Newspaper Zombie's newspaper on fire

Difficulty: Extremely easy

Hot Off the Presses is an achievement in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It is achieved by setting a Newspaper Zombie's newspaper on fire, meaning that the player must let a fire plant (e.g. Pepper-pult) attack a Newspaper Zombie. It is worth 5 points on Game Center for iOS devices and 500 XP on Google Play Games for Android devices.


Its name is a reference to the term "hot off the presses," meaning a very recently printed news article.


Just go into a level with Newspaper Zombie, then choose fire plants such as Snapdragon and use them to attack the zombie. This can be done easily in Modern Day - Day 3.


  • The newspaper on the icon burns differently than the newspaper in the game.
