Modern Day - Day 17 is the seventeenth level of Modern Day in Plants vs. Zombies 2. Dusk Lobber is pre-selected in this level. When this level is finished for the first time, the player unlocks the aforementioned plant.
The player should not have much worries with this level, as the zombie density is extremely low. The player has plenty of time to set up defenses. There are little threats, but the main one being the Arcade Zombie and some Turquoise Skull Zombies at the last wave. Again, the player should have enough firepower to defeat these zombies. The player should utilize Moonflower, as it will make the given plant, Dusk Lobber, better at attacking. Dusk Lobber, when powered, will lob down three lanes instead of one. Only one portal appears during the level, which spawns almost half way into the lawn. The fact that it only appears last wave and is an Ancient Egypt portal only makes it easier to deal with.
- 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.

- For some reason, the arcade machines in this level do not spawn 8-Bit Zombies. This may be a glitch or just because the level is programmed to have no 8-bit jam.
- A glitch may appear where the Tomb Raiser Zombie will throw its bone and at the same time, the Arcade Zombie will push its arcade machine, then a tombstone will spawn on that arcade machine.
- This level is incorrectly labeled as a Brain Buster on the world map.
