Shieldy Gnome is an enemy in Infinity Time and the Trials of Gnomus in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It carries a shield with high health to protect itself and increase its overall health, making it the Gnome equivalent of the Screen Door Zombie and the Wood Shield Weed. However, the shield can be bypassed by shooting its head or back. Shieldy Gnome attacks by slamming the player with its shield. Shieldy Gnome also can toss a small projectile at a range, similar to a Weed's Seed Spit or Zombie's Rock Hurl. Once the shield is destroyed, it becomes a regular Gnome.
- It is unknown how a Shieldy Gnome acquires a hammer after its shield is destroyed.
- There is a rare glitch that occurs if the shield is charged at, the Gnome will freeze mid-knockback. While in this state, it does not move at all, but can still shoot the small projectiles.
