Repeater is a peashooting plant which costs 200 sun, firing peas twice as fast (aka 2 peas at a time) as a Peashooter, while only taking up one space, allowing the player to have more peas fired on his or her lawn. It does normal damage for each pea, overall doing moderate damage. It does two normal damage shots, The downside is that it costs twice the sun the Peashooter does, except in Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. It is also an upgrade plant in Plants vs. Zombies Online.


Plants vs. Zombies

Repeater is obtained after beating level 1-8, which is the last non-mushroom plant received in Day stage. It can be upgraded to the Gatling Pea for 250 sun upon purchasing from Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies for $5,000.

In Vasebreaker, a reverse version of Repeater only appear in this mode. Reversed Repeaters appear in almost every Vasebreaker level starting with To the Left. The only Vasebreaker levels they do not appear in are Vasebreaker and Hokey Pokey.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

Repeater is obtained after the player reclaims The Fitness Lot. It still shoots two peas each time, but each Repeater's pea does two damage, making it can do four damage per shot. It only requires 100 sun in this game.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

Repeater is obtained after beating Ancient Egypt - Day 19. Its function is still the same as it was when it appeared inPlants vs. Zombies.

Repeater fires two peas at a time. Probably because, secretly, Repeater yearns for love.


Plants vs. Zombies

Gatling Pea is its upgrade. It can shot four peas each time.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

Plant Food

When fed Plant Food, it will turn into Gatling Pea, but with a point on the top of the helmet, a corporal symbol on the armor, and the crash helmet being blue, and shoot 90 peas. At the end, it shoots a giant pea that deals 30 damage.

Level upgrade (Chinese version only)

Level 2

Colorful Peas

Repeater has a rare chance to shoot a frozen pea (with a ratio of 1:8) and burning pea (with a ratio of 1:6).

Combat Training

Repeater has 50% more attack power and health (150% of initial).

Level 3

Elemental Charge

Repeater's probability to shoot a frozen pea or a fire pea increases. In addition, it is now capable of shooting napalm pea.

Cell Activation

Repeater has another 50% more attack power and health (200% of initial).

Costumed (Chinese version only)

Repeater can shoot regular peas, burning peas and frozen peas at the same time and one napalm pea when given Plant Food.


Plants vs. Zombies

The Repeater is a great plant to use, but can be expensive in the early part of the game. Upgrading it with the Gatling Pea to fire four shots instead of two or putting a Torchwood in front of it are both good ways to increase the damage output, although the Gatling Pea is more space efficient (if there are multiple Gatling Peas in a row, a Torchwood should also be used to maximize the damage per plant instead of having to plant twice the number of Gatling Peas for the same thing). Keep in mind, however, that the cheapest of those is the Torchwood, as it requires 25 less sun than two Repeaters.


The Repeater is very helpful for Vasebreaker levels; however, they face backwards and therefore are best used on the rightmost column. When you plant one, just keep breaking vases from that lane until all the zombies are killed or you have to plant another for a strong zombie.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

This is a perfect plant to deal with zombies such as Conehead Zombies, Explorer Zombies, Prospector Zombies, and Zombie Chickens with ease. For the case of Zombie Chicken especially if you have not obtained the Lightning Reeds yet in Endless Zones, this is the best way to deal with them but remember to place them in numbers to lessen the chance of breaking through your defenses.

Repeaters may not be so useful in Endless Zones, because they only attack the first zombie and they are expensive. It can be useful between levels 1-10 in Endless Zones.

Along with Threepeaters, place Repeaters beside the Threepeaters for an even intense firepower. Another good thing is to place a Torchwood along with the two of them for a double amount of damage. With this, you can hasten the time for clearing a row full of zombies but it would've been more dangerous if you would add Pea Pod with it. You can even use this to stop horde of zombies especially in higher levels of Dead Man's Booty.

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

Specific to Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

  • Repeater has two costumes in Chinese version, one is with a pole on the back, which resembles Boku No Songuku, a character in a certain Chinese TV series and the other is magician's hat.
