Sandy Sands is a Suburbination, Gnome Bomb, Team Vanquish, Vanquish Confirmed!, Garden Ops, Graveyard Ops and Solo Ops map in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It was shown in a livestream of the game being played on January 29, 2016. It is shown to be a desert/Egypt-themed map during a large sandstorm, meaning that you can't see very far and can only see close things around you. This is part of some new dynamic weather that was introduced to the game.
Golden Gnome locations
There are two hidden Golden Gnomes in this map:
- One is hidden in a vase on top of a doorway near the marketplace.
- The other is located near the river. There is a hidden Mushroom Button on one of the nearby buildings. Shooting it will cause a boat with the Golden Gnome to float near the shore. The player needs to be careful getting close to collect it, as they might fall in the river. If the player doesn't collect it fast enough, the boat will float away, and the player will have to repeat the process.
