Bigger Better Butter
Party Corn is a Legendary Kernel Corn variant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Like with other "Party" variants, when Party Corn gets enough vanquishes in a session, he will enter Party Time!, which makes him move faster and deal higher damage.
However, like other party variants, Party Corn's stickers cannot be obtained through sticker packs (excluding Infinity Packs), but instead the player must open Eternity Chests in Infinity Time to obtain the stickers to unlock him, meaning the player must get 15,000 Time Shards or more to have a chance at unlocking him. Like all Legendary variants, only two stickers are required to unlock him. He does 8-10 damage in Party Time! Normally, he does 5-7 damage.
Party Corn was deep undercover, investigating a particularly raucous celebration when he heard about the Battle of Zomburbia. With no time to change out of his party garb, he sprang into action, Party Busters at the ready.
Vanquish foes to fill his meter and initiate Party Time, where you'll move faster and deal extra damage!
Party Time! is the variant ability for Party Corn. By getting Vanquishes, the bar for Party Time fills up. When the bar is full, Party Time activates and it gives Party Corn a temporary damage and speed boost.
Party Corn tosses a Hot Potato. A massive amount of butter is deployed from the sky wherever it lands.
Party Corn leaps into the air in a forward distance while firing his Cob Busters directly below him which damages any target below him.
Similar to ZPG, Party fires 2 big cobs straight in front of himself. He does massive damage and is capable of instantly vanquishing anything he hits (except for Z-Mechs), if the cobs manage to score a direct hit.
Bigger, Better Butter
Revealed in a live stream, it is the alternative ability to the Butter Barrage. Party Corn tosses a Hot Potato, but one giant piece of butter falls from the sky where it landed, which then makes a large explosion.
Party Corn is another Party variant that has not been getting any strong reasons to be used. He does very pathetic damage without "Party Time!", making it nearly impossible to achieve "Party Time!" in a multiplayer match, as many players will simply defeat you in a battle of attrition, since you deal too little damage compared to Party Corn's vanilla counterpart, while your enemy will most likely not have to worry about having a weapon with lower damage. Use your abilities to your advantage as they will most likely be your only hope of getting into "Party Time!". This Party variant should be used instead in AI battles to make playing it enjoyable, as achieving vanquishes against AI is generally easier.
Party Corn has only one thing going for him, which is the increased health that all of the Corn variants recently had. His damage will only be somewhat harmful at close range, which is also the range that his weapon becomes very difficult to aim in. Having to worry about this variant achieving "Party Time!" should be a very low priority, since not even the damage boost and speed boost can justify his current stats.
