Strategies

With

Despite only have 1StrengthPvZH, Lightning Reed can be devastating if used correctly. If you play it between 2 zombies, Lightning Reed is able to hurt, and possibly destroy both zombies and damage the zombie hero. If you play it in the middle of 3 zombies, Lightning Reed does damage to all of them. However, since splash damage is fixed, you cannot increase its splash damage even if you boost its strength. Lightning Reed can also be played on the aquatic lane, which makes it safer from zombie heroes who have no Amphibious zombies, such as Rustbolt, Professor Brainstorm, and Z-Mech.

Ironically, despite having the Amphibious trait, Lightning Reed is more effective when played next to the aquatic lane, since it can hit the Amphibious zombie and have its splash damage activated to its full potential at the same time, while you have one less lane for splash damage to take effect if played on the aquatic lane. This only applies if the aquatic lane is the fifth lane in the field and Lightning Reed's strength is unboosted.

Against

Lightning Reed is actually not very hard to deal with. Unless its strength is boosted, you can destroy it with Rolling Stone. Strength-reducing cards such as Nibble or Landscaper also work, since Lightning Reed will be unable to fight back. Zombies with the PvZH Armored IconArmored trait can easily nullify Lightning Reed's splash damage. The Chickening and Bungee Plumber can also destroy it easily assuming its health was not boosted.

Trivia

  • It can played on water in this game, but it cannot be planted on water in Plants vs. Zombies 2.

  • The "shock value" mentioned in its description is a portmanteau on the words "shock," or commonly known as an electric shock, the physiological reaction or injury caused by electric current passing through the body, and "shock value," the potential of an action or media to provoke a sharp negative reaction of disgust, shock, anger, fear, or similar emotions.
  • Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies 2, it cannot destroy Zombie Chicken in one attack.
