Pomegranate Machine Gun (机枪石榴; pinyin: jīqiāng shíliú) is a monthly special plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It spits multiple seeds at zombies in a 3x1 space in front of it.


Pomegranate Machine Gun is based on the punica granatum, also known as the pomegranate. The second part is a reference to its Plant Food ability, which is similar to a machine gun, but his normal attack is more like a scattergun.

    When Pomegranate Machine Gun went to the library to peek at the school beauty he accidentally read a book called "1000 ways to eat pomegranates", on the title page was a quote that changed his life, "No matter how you eat it, pomegranate seeds are always spit out." Then he joined the army, and became a machine gunner with oddly bad marksmanship. And then he retired, and became a landlord that ate seeds and sunbathed every day. And then? Don't you see that guy over there that opened his mouth to spit at you?


Plant Food effect

When fed Plant Food, Pomegranate Machine Gun pulls out a machine gun's barrel on top of its head and starts firing powerful seeds every second, dealing massive damage to whatever is in front of it in a 3x5 area.


It causes splash damage along with direct damage.

This plant is better used in groups because of the heavy damage output in multiple lanes. At level 1, you should keep this heavily defended with defensive plants such as Wall-nuts, Tall-nuts, and Infi-nut, to ensure that the Pomegranate Machine Gun does not get easily overwhelmed by the zombie horde due to its low range. Support it with Winter MelonLaser Bean or Snapdragon since it cannot stand alone.

From Level 2, treat this plant like how you would use Snapdragon. It can become very powerful at level 4 since it there is a chance that its Plant Food effect is activated. Combining this with Sunflower Singer at this level can make it even more dangerous since it has received upgrades to its damage output.

Just be careful in Dark Ages and Kongfu World when you are entering levels with Jester Zombie and Hammer Zombie respectively, since they can deflect the plant's projectiles back at it.
