Max out a Pea Pod on a mine cart

Difficulty: Somewhat hard (easy in conveyor-belt levels and Last Stand)

Pod Squad is an achievement in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It requires the player to max out a Pea Pod while it is on a mine cart. It is worth 15 points on Game Center for iOS devices and 1,500 XP on Android devices.


Its name is an example of rhyming, as the words "pod" and "squad" both end with an "-odd" sound.


Minecarts are one of the best places to put maxed out Pea Pods as it lets the plant cover more than one lane as needed. Thus, the achievement leads players towards a viable defense strategy. 625 sun needs to be spent to max out the Pea Pod. A good level to do this is in a Last Stand level, so you can put down five Pea Pods and be done.You can use Plant Food on Sunflowers to get more sun, or if you have the Instant Recharge upgrade, you ignore the recharge of the Pea Pod, however this is not recommended since it takes very little time to recharge a Pea Pod.

You can easily do this in Wild West on Day 6, 8, 18, or 25. However, it is best done on Day 8 due to the large density of zombies.


  • It and Shell on Wheels are the only achievements which require to use a minecart and rail.
  • The icon of this achievement looks similar to the icon of Shell on Wheels, except that it has a Pea Pod instead of a Wall-nut. Both require planting on a minecart and also can only be done in the Wild West and Piñata Parties with Pea Pod (or Wall-nut) and minecart and rail.
  • It and Shell on Wheels are the only achievements to have minecarts on them.
