Stickerbook description

The Mechanic Zombie keeps all of the Zomboss gear in fire working order, or at least he thinks banging things together is fixing them.

In-game description

His fully automatic Air Impactor deals direct damage, making him a great choice for more accurate players!

Primary weapon

Mechanic's primary weapon is the Air Gun (Air Impactor in Garden Warfare 2). The facts below apply to a fully upgraded weapon.

  • The base close range damage per hit is 7 and the critical is 9.
  • The max DPS at close range is 85.1.
  • The base middle range damage per hit is 6 and the critical is 7.

  • The projectile speed is fast.
  • The weapon is full auto.
  • The bloom is medium.


Sonic Grenade

The Sonic Grenade is a grenade that, when thrown, will stun plants in a small radius for a short time and forces burrowing Chompers out from the ground.

Proximity Sonic Mine

An alternate ability of the Sonic Grenade, the Proximity Sonic Mine is a landmine which can stun plants for about five seconds when stepped on and makes Chompers come out of their burrow. This can be very useful for defending a teleporter or trying to escape from plants.


The Jackhammer allows for quicker movement but at the cost at not being able to use your other abilities.

Turbo Jackhammer

An alternate ability of Jackhammer, the Turbo Jackhammer travels faster, but lasts for a shorter amount of time.

Zombot Drone - GW1 Only

The Zombot Drone, is a drone equipped with the Zombot Laser and the deadly Cone Strike. It has five health.

Rocket Drone - GW1 Only

The Rocket Drone is an alternate version of Zombot Drone having more health (20). It is equipped with the Mean Beam and Lone Cone.

Big Bolt Blaster - GW2 Only

The Big Bolt Blaster is a mounted turret similar to the Pea Gatling. It has 100 ammo and a very high rate of fire.

Weapon upgrades - GW1


Better Air Compression

Better air compression releases tension in the reload thingy... Whatever, it's just faster.

More Nuts & Bolts

Added some extra Nuts & Bolts from around town to increase ammo capacity.

Harder Nuts & Bolts

Nuts & Bolts are harder causing more damage. How they got harder we don't exactly know.



The Mechanic's Air Gun is fully automatic, making it ideal for players who either struggle to lead their shots or are otherwise more comfortable with automatic weapons. The Air Gun has two advantages over the Concrete Launcher, it has a longer range and its shots travel straight forward, allowing you to attack enemies from longer distances without the need to angle your shots, second, it allows you to protect the teleporter from its main threat, drone strikes, by shooting down the drones before they can attack without giving them much chance at dodging your shots, allowing you to deny the plant team from cutting off your team's logistical advantage without actively assaulting the teleporter. However, bear in mind that the Mechanic has a downside: recoil. His shots have recoil that almost matches an Imps, so remember to aim accordingly and take into account recoil.

Balancing changes

Trouble in Zombopolis: Part Two DLC

  • Start/end damage was increased from 7/5 – 8/6.25.


Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2


  • His name is Al, as shown by his name tag.
    • This means that he is "Mechanic Al", a pun on the word "mechanical".
    • He is one of the only three Engineers to have an actual name, the others being AC Perry and the Plumber, whose names are Perry and Bob, respectively.
  • He is the only Engineer variant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare that does not deal splash damage. Instead, his primary weapon is automatic.
  • He wears a racing toolbox as a hat, a real mechanic's shirt and the weapon has a racing flag. It is the reason why this variant of Engineer is racing-themed.
  • His rate of fire was slightly increased in the Legends of the Lawn DLC to compensate for its lack of splash damage.
