Peashooter is the most primary attacking plant in the Plants vs. Zombies series. It is a peashooting plant, and shoots one pea at a time. It is the first available plant in all of the Plants vs. Zombies games.

History

Plants vs. Zombies

Peashooter is the only regular offensive plant available until the Snow Pea is unlocked after beating Level 1-6.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

Peashooter is the only plant that doesn't need to be unlocked by beating a level or reclaiming a lot. It is available from the start of the game, and the only regular offensive plant available until the Aspearagus is unlocked after reclaiming The Plantagon Lot.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

Peashooter is once again the first plant available and again costs 100 sun.

Plant Food Upgrade

With the use of Plant Food, it can be upgraded to a faster-shooting Gatling Pea for three seconds. It shoots 60 peas in its lane, 20 peas each second.

How can a single plant grow and shoot so many peas so quickly? Peashooter says, "Hard work, commitment, and a healthy, well-balanced breakfast of sunlight and high-fiber carbon dioxide make it all possible."

Cost: 100

"What is it like being famous?" asked the Peashooter while sipping his bottled water, "I can't talk right now, I'm finishing my merchandising deal. Hold my fur coat."

Strategies

The Peashooter is the main standard source of firepower in your floral arsenal and the first offensive plant available to the player. Peashooters should be planted in the lane of an oncoming zombie, where it will fire upon the zombie with peas until it has been neutralized. Peashooters are useful for early defense, as once the player has sufficient sun, perhaps from Potato Mines, more powerful offensive plants should be planted instead of the Peashooter.

Peashooting plants of any type are not recommended for use in the roof levels, as they cannot shoot over the sloping angle of the roof unless they are in the first sloped column. The only time when Peashooters and other related plants should be used is when aiming for the Grounded achievement. They can also be used on the flat portion of the roof, though they may need to be reinforced with Pumpkins, as they become more vulnerable to attacks, especially ambush zombies. Peashooters are great for killing basic zombies but are not to be used for more powerful zombies like Buckethead Zombies unless they are used in groups or in conjunction with Snow Peas.

Heat Wave Mini-game

The only offensive plants available in this mini-game are Peashooters, which must be used to their full potential. Tough zombies that would normally absorb too many peas appear frequently throughout Heat Wave. The Peashooter, at first glance, would seem to operate as if it was under normal circumstances. However, immediately after shouting into the microphone of the DS, some of the Peashooters on screen will gain an orange tint and begin shooting a constant stream of peas at the same rate as a Gatling Pea. When this occurs, use these Peashooters to defeat tougher zombies. However, remember to keep them so, as over time, the Peashooters will eventually tire out and turn a tint of brown.

During the level, some Peashooters may don a brownish tint and slow their shooting. They will exchange their brown tint for an orange one upon shouting into the microphone. Move these Peashooters to a different row from that of the zombies' advance, so as to preserve them for later use.

Trivia

General

  • Many depictions of the Peashooter erroneously portray it as having the back leaves of a Repeater.
    • This is seen on the machine on Slot Machine and many other promotions for the game.
  • Peashooter resembles a Bellsprout from the Pokemon game series.
  • Peashooter is a term for weak weapons, as people sometimes call weak guns peashooters. This makes sense, as the Peashooter is the first plant unlocked and thus be quite weak.
    • Peashooters are also old fashioned kid's toys, so it could mean that.
  • A statue of a Peashooter appears as a cameo in Battlefield 4's Dawnbreaker map. It is thought that this is a reponse to the Garden Warfare trailer, which paid homages to various trailers from first-person shooters, mainly Battlefield 3 and it's "rival", Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
  • The Peashooter and the Threepeater are the only plants that were plant pieces in Plants vs. Zombies Risk

Plants vs. Zombies

  • Many of the Peashooter's textures, such as its bottom leaves and its head, are used in images of other plants.
  • When on the Zombatar tab of the Plants vs. Zombies Website, a Peashooter with blue hair can be seen at the corner of the screen.
  • The Peashooter appears in the most mini-games of any plant.
  • The Peashooter, the Imitater, the Explode-o-nut, the Giant Wall-nut, the Giant Sunflower and the Giant Marigold are the only non-upgrade plants that are not obtained by completing a level.
  • It can take down a Conehead Zombie by itself if it is in the leftmost column, eight squares away from the spawnpoint of the zombie.
  • The Peashooter is the only plant that can be used in Level 1-1, unless you have already completed Adventure Mode at least once.
  • Peashooter, Puff-shroom, Wall-nut and Jalapeno are the only plants referenced to in another plant's Suburban Almanac description. Peashooter is referenced to in the Imitater's entry.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

  • Peashooter is the only plant with two VIPS.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

  • This is one of the six plants seen in the trailer of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time while fighting the zombies, the other five being Bonk Choy, Bloomerang, Pea Pod, Wall-nut, and Sunflower.
  • Even though the Peashooter is the first plant, it is the second Seed Packet in the seed selection screen and in the Almanac.
  • The Peashooter, along with the Sunflower and the Wall-nut, are the only plants whose costumes change depending on the season.
  • Now, we can see the Peashooter's pea going through its stem before it fires.
