Fools! You have fallen into my excruciatingly obvious trap! My vast and varied array of Gargantuars will pummel you into total oblivion!

Dr. Zomboss

Modern Day - Day 16 is the sixteenth level of Modern Day in Plants vs. Zombies 2. The player requires to battle all of the Gargantuars from different worlds with the exception of Vase Gargantuar and Dark Ages Gargantuar without lawn mowers. When this level is finished for the first time, the player receives a Mystery Gift Box.

Difficulty

With the level consisting of mostly Gargantuars, the entire level poses a big threat for the player. The first part will contain powerful plants for the player. However, as waves start to progress, powerful plants will be swapped out for weaker plants. As a result, this level heavily relies on the player's positioning and use of given plants, including luck from the plants provided. Alongside that, Plant Food may not be provided throughout the level unless the Dynamic Difficulty is low enough.

Dynamic Difficulty also does not affect the level too much, as it only adds Basic Zombies, Conehead Zombies, and Buckethead Zombies, alongside Imps that appear on their own, which can be taken down with the strong plants given to the player due to their lower health and high damage from plants.

Waves

The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Strategies

Created by Dung Dinh Anh

Note: CxRy means column x, row y

This strategy divides the given plants into four categories:

  • Explode: Primal Potato Mine2 Cherry Bomb2 Grapeshot2 - these plants deal a lot of damage over an area but can only be used once, so they MUST be placed strategically.
  • Vital: Winter Melon2 Coconut Cannon2 Citron2 Intensive Carrot2 - these plants are required to defeat the Gargantuars, and MUST also be placed strategically.
  • Support: Primal Wall-nut2 Spikerock2 Cold Snapdragon2 Phat Beet2 - these plants do not deal much damage, but they are very helpful against Imps, so they should be placed on the third column.
  • Sacrifice: Threepeater2 Repeater2 A.K.E.E.2 Iceberg Lettuce2 Peashooter2 - these are the weak ones, and should be used to stall the Gargantuars.

Planting tips:

  • Place the first two Primal Potato Mines on C4R5 and C5R5.
  • Fill the first column with Winter Melons, place the first one on the fifth column to buy some time.
  • When the second wave starts, start filling the second column with Coconut Cannons and Winter Melons; Citrons should be put on column 4, especially C4R2
  • Place the third Primal Potato Mine on C9R2, and the fourth on C9R1 to defeat Hair Metal Gargantuar quickly. If there are not enough Primal Potato Mines, the C4R2 Citron will take the hit.
  • Save the third column for the Support plants.
  • Only use Cherry Bombs and Grapeshots to kill the Gargantuars which have reached the fourth column or to greatly damage Gargantuar Primes.
  • Do not plant any of the Support or Sacrifice on the first two columns unless the Imps are about to reach your house, or Intensive Carrots will not be able to revive powerful plants.
