Update History

Update 1.2.11

  • Set - Rarity change: Basic - Common → Premium - Uncommon



This trick can be a huge benefit, since it can take out plants which have or can gain a big boost of strength, such as Super-Phat Beets. Pea Pod and Doubled Mint, Potted Powerhouse are also optional, as they both gain strength and health points every turn. Threats to zombie fighters, such as Winter Melon and Three-Headed Chomper, are also good selections to destroy.


There is very little you can do. Prioritizing on one plant's strength is usually not a good idea, as this will kill it. The only surefire way to combat Rocket Science is to use bonus attacks after buffing a plant to ensure some damage, or use 3 strength cards. This is because neither this nor Rolling Stone/Weed Spray can touch these plants. Only Beastly cards that destroy plants would do so, in addition to the Deadly trait. Solar has a good amount of 3 strength plants, such as Metal Petal Sunflower, Bloomerang, Power Flower, etc.




  • Its description is a reference to the phrase "it's not rocket science," meaning that something is not as hard as rocket science, the primary field of aircraft and spacecraft correctly called aerospace engineering.
  • A rocket similar to this one is found in Wall-Knight and Z-Mech's comic strip.
