Note

This level of Survival Mode is quite easy. Players can use a lot of plants that they rely on in normal day levels, because this level is only slightly longer than most of them. However, a good plant to use to stop Buckethead Zombies, Screen Door Zombies, and Football Zombies are Magnet-shrooms with Coffee Beans.

Gatling Twins

This strategy is quite simple and easy.

Plants needed:

Wave 1
Plant two Sunflowers in the first and second columns. When the first zombie appears, players won't have enough sun to get a Repeater, so plant a Potato Mine in the third column. Collect enough sun to buy a Repeater. When the second zombie appears, place the Repeater in the third column in the same lane as the zombie. Place two Sunflowers behind it. When the third zombie appears, plant another Potato Mine. When the fourth zombie appears, plant another Repeater. Place two Sunflowers behind it. Plant three more Repeaters, and place Sunflowers behind them. If you have enough sun for one, plant a Gatling Pea on a Repeater. Plant a Twin Sunflower on any Sunflower as soon as possible.

Wave 2
Plant more Twin Sunflowers. When the first Buckethead appears, add a Gatling Pea or a Torchwood on the fifth column to take it down. Upgrade all Repeaters to Gatling Peas as soon as possible. When finished, plant Torchwoods with Pumpkins in column five.

Wave 3
Plant another column of Repeaters in the fourth column. Keep planting Twin Sunflowers. When you have enough sun, add Gatling Peas to the new Repeaters. By the time this wave is complete, you may have all Twin Sunflower planted. If not, you will definitely get them by Wave 4.

Wave 4
Keep upgrading those Repeaters and Sunflowers.

Wave 5
Players should be set by now. There isn't much else to do except collect money and wait.

Gatling Melons

Plants to bring:

SD-Strategy 3

Note that Snow Peas can be replaced with Melon-pults later on.

Gatling Torchwoods

By Jackninja5DipperGravityFalls

First flag

To start off, choose the following plants:

Do not choose Repeaters, as they are for the next flag. It is recommended to plant two columns of Sunflowers, but if you do not plant them in time, focus on planting Peashooters. Then plant Snow Peas for the Conehead Zombies. This is pretty easy and so your lawn should look like this:

Jackninja5SurvivalDayFlag1

If you don’t plant enough Sunflowers, don’t worry. Just plant them before the second flag.

Note: You can use Potato Mines, Squashes, or both if you do not have enough sun for Peashooters and Snow Peas.

Second flag

Choose these plants:

Continue planting Sunflowers until Screen Door Zombies or Newspaper Zombies arrive. You can also plant Repeaters whenever you want, but dig up the Peashooters first. Also, you might want to replace the Snow Peas with Torchwoods. Now your lawn should look like this:

Jackninja5SurvivalDayFlag2

Note: Plant Twin Sunflowers wherever you want on Sunflowers in all waves after this.

Third flag

Choose these plants:

Jackninja5SurvivalDayFlag3

By this point, Buckethead Zombies should be defeated easily. Try to keep planting Gatling Peas and Twin Sunflowers.

Fourth flag

Choose these plants:

Jackninja5SurvivalDayFlag4

Football Zombies should arrive, but they are not a threat if you have a Gatling Pea and a Torchwood combined. Continue to plant Twin Sunflower.

Final flag

Choose these plants:

Jackninja5SurvivalDayFlag5

You should need to plant more Twin Sunflowers at this point. Warning: It's hard to collect all of the sun.

The Peashooter strategy

This is a very simple strategy. You need Peashooters, Sunflowers, Torchwoods, Magnet-shrooms, Coffee Beans, and Pumpkins. Plants like Gold Magnets, Marigolds, and Twin Sunflowers are optional.

Eight slots, no upgrades

This a simple strategy that can be done with eight seed slots and no upgrade plants.

DeathZombi's Catapult Conundrum (9 slots)

First flag plants:

  • Sunflower
  • Imitater Sunflower
  • Twin Sunflower
  • Potato Mine
  • Squash
  • Cabbage-pult
  • Melon-pult 
  • Winter Melon
  • Spikeweed

(Not done yet)

Gold farming strategy

This strategy will help players to earn at least 2500 coins.

Choose these plants:

  • Sunflower = S
  • Repeater = R
  • Gatling Pea = GP (not necessary)
  • Torchwood = Tw
  • Marigold =M
  • Garlic = G
  • Potato Mine
  • Any kind of Instant players like or Twin Sunflower.

First, plant a row of Sunflowers on the rightmost column, then use Potato Mine for the first zombies. Put two columns of Repeaters on the second and fourth rows, then Garlic on the first, third, and fifth rows. After that, plant Marigolds on the Garlic's row. Players lawn will look like this:

Note: / = empty space

Coins and Spikes Strategy

Plants needed:

  1. Sunflower=S
  2. Garlic=G
  3. Coffee Bean
  4. Doom-shroom
  5. Potato Mine
  6. Tall-Nut=T
  7. Marigold=M
  8. Spikeweed
  9. Spikerock=SS

Plant sunflowers in the entire top lane except the two front space for garlics. In that process, players will need to use potato mines to get rid of pesky zombies. Now, start planting Spikeweeds in lanes two and four (those will become Spikerocks). Put a tall-nut on the back of the Spikerocks. On the bottom lane, plant an entire lane of marigolds except the front one for two garlics. In the third lane, plant two garlics in front. The rest of the game is simple. In the third lane, use doom-shrooms to take out every zombie.

At wave two, exchange potato mines for cherry bomb. And exchange marigold for Imitated doom-shrooms.

At the end, the lawn should look like this:

S S S S S S S G G
