Plants vs. Zombies

The newspaper serves as a shield for the Newspaper Zombie. If the newspaper is destroyed, the zombie will stop for approximately two seconds, before getting angry and running at approximately double the speed towards the player's plants in that lane. The newspaper, however, is not particularly sturdy, and can be easily destroyed with a simple Peashooter. Lobbed-shot plants, Fume-shrooms, Gloom-shrooms, Spikeweeds, and Spikerocks can hurt the Newspaper Zombie directly, bypassing the shield entirely. Note that the shield, like all shields, allows the newspaper to avoid the elemental effects of fire peas and frozen peas.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Like the previous game, the newspaper serves as a shield for the Newspaper Zombie. If the newspaper is destroyed, the Newspaper Zombie will stop for approximately two seconds, before getting angry and running at approximately double the speed towards the player's plants in that lane, also it can destroy plants very quickly. It is recommended to have a slowing plant to slow it down.
