Extinguish an Explorer Zombie's torch
Difficulty: Very easy
No Smoking is an achievement in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It requires the player to extinguish the torch from an Explorer Zombie or a Porter Gargantuar. It is worth 15 points on the Game Center for iOS devices and 1,500 XP on Google Play Games for Android devices.
Its name is based on the public rule of "no smoking", referring to not smoking tobacco products in public places, and references the fact that fire from torches and other places usually releases smoke.
The plants that can extinguish Explorer Zombie's torch are Iceberg Lettuce, Snow Pea, Winter Melon, Hurrikale, and Cold Snapdragon. An Iceberg Lettuce can easily earn this achievement, as it is aforementioned in the description that it can extinguish flames and it does not cost any sun. Also, it is obtained the level before the Explorer Zombies appear. However, if any zombie manages to step in front of the Explorer Zombie before it can reach the Iceberg Lettuce, it will freeze the first zombie instead. Try to act fast when the Explorer Zombie appears before any zombie gets in the way. If there seems like there is no chance to find the Explorer Zombie, you can just use Plant Food on any of the freezing plants, except for Hurrikale, since it is an instant-use plant.
- Ironically, the fire on the Explorer Zombie's torch does not produce smoke when lit or extinguished.
- It can be obtained by chilling a Porter Gargantuar, even though its torch is already unlit.
- This may be because, as seen in the trailer for Lost City Part 1, the Gargantuar's torch used to be lit.
