This zombie is expensive and very luck based. If the player thinks luck is the only way to turn the game around, place this where it will be destroyed and hope to get a very powerful zombie. The player can also use this as a good way to block plants, as if the plant hero destroys it with tricks, another zombie will take its place. A good idea is to boost its attack with the Zombot Drone Engineer and use it in conjunction with other Science zombies to make it pose as an even bigger threat.
This zombie can be a tricky one to deal with, since it can turn into something as weak as Skunk Punk to something as threatening as Shieldcrusher Viking. In fact, this can also be considered a more powerful zombie-version of the Seedling, as it can turn the tables when you least expect it. It's recommended to stall for a few turns before destroying it, either by Freezing or Bouncing it or by placing weak plants in front of it, because when destroyed it could possibly turn into a powerful zombie that could mess with your strategy. Generally, you should be ready for anything when facing this zombie.
Make sure you have plenty of instant kills, just in case this turns into a zombie that creates trouble, such as Octo Zombie or Zombot Sharktronic Sub. That way, the newly made zombies will not cause trouble. However, if it spawns certain zombies like Zombot 1000, you might want to recreate your defenses quickly.
- When Portal Technician attacks, it will fire random objects. These objects include a Roadcone, a boot, Mad Chemist's beaker and Trickster's rubber chicken.
