Oak Archer (橡木弓手; pinyin: xiàngmù gōngshǒu) is a plant that appears in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2, specifically found in the Dark Ages. It shoots oak arrows at zombies, and each arrow deals 100 damage per shot.

橡木弓手可以发射强力的箭矢攻击前方的僵尸。

植物特征:褐色植物

Strategies

Oak Archer is akin to a Peashooter with an arguably better Plant Food ability and higher damage output (100 damage per shot), which means it has a high DPS for its price.

Later, it can mow zombies with extra arrows in extra lanes, giving it the ability to pierce multiple zombies. Pairing this with Winter Melons or other supportive and defensive plants is recommended as the damage will add up. 

Oak Archer is a great plant to bring into levels but practice caution when using it in Kongfu World since Hammer Zombie can reflect it. Be sure to bring an area-of-effect or lobbed-shot plant to back it up.

Trivia

  • Its projectiles use the splash effect caused by peas.
    • This could mean its wooden arrows are re-textured peas, similar to how Guacodile's pits are re-textured peas.
  • It, Coconut CannonBowling Bulb, and Guacodile are the only plants to have a Brain Buster created exclusively for them, not counting Special Delivery.
  • It is the only wooden plant to specify what kind of wood it is.
  • Its projectiles cannot be returned by Jester Zombie.
    • Prior to the 1.3.2 update, Hammer Zombies couldn't return its projectiles.
  • Its Almanac entry alludes to the Skyrim meme Arrow in the knee.
  • It, Coffee Bean and Plantern are the only Chinese-exclusive plants in Dark Ages.
    • More specifically, Coffee Bean and Plantern are not actually Chinese-exclusive, since they already appear in the original Plants vs. Zombies.
  • On the Almanac, Oak Archer appears to have his stump off the tile.
