This is a strategy page about Survival: Endless. Feel free to add your strategies, but see the rules page first.

Strategy 1

Duration: About 20 flags

Seed slots needed: Nine or ten

Waves 1-2

Plants:

Rake is not needed.

Start planting Sunflowers in the back two columns. When the first zombie comes, plant a Peashooter in that lane. When a Conehead Zombie comes, plant another Peashooter in that lane or replace it with a Repeater. Reserve three columns for your shooting plants. Plant Spikeweeds in the front two lanes when you can. Plant Tall-nuts behind them, and if you don't have it recharged use the Imitater form. Plant Torchwoods in front of the three peashooting columns. Once you have Peashooters in all 18 spots, replace them with Repeaters. The only free spaces should be the two front pool columns.

Waves 3-4

Plants:

Finish planting Spikeweeds and upgrading your Peashooters to Repeaters. Upgrade your Sunflowers to Twin Sunflowers. Don't upgrade the ones on the pool; when you upgrade a Sunflower shovel one on the pool and upgrade a Lily Pad to a Cattail. You can also upgrade your Repeaters to Gatling Peas. Make sure to replace your Tall-nuts. Pumpkin the Torchwood to protect it from ambush zombies.

Waves 5-6

Plants needed:

You now can do something with those four empty spaces. Put a Pumpkin around a Gloom-shroom. Do the same things as in the previous waves as before.

If there are Digger Zombies, replace some of your Repeaters with Split Peas. If there are Zombonis or Gargantuars, make sure you have a lot of Spikerocks to stall the Gargantuars and kill the Zombonis.

Strategy 2: Simple 6 Cob Cannon Build

Starting round (flags 1-2)

Start with Sunflowers, Cattails in the middle of the pool, Tall-nuts in front of Cattails, and 4 Cob Cannons at the back of the pool.

Flags 3-6

Add Winter Melons at the 4th column ground; Umbrella Leaves at column 5, lanes 2&5; and Gloom-shrooms at column 6, lanes 2&5. Upgrade Sunflowers to Twin Sunflowers (except column 2) to earn Sun. Every second flag of each round, 5.5 seconds after huge wave signal appears, use Ice-shroom to stop the underwater zombies from coming out.

Flags 7-10

Replace Sunflowers at column 2, rows 1&6 to Gloom-shrooms in Pumpkins for the Diggers, and to Umbrella Leaves at colums 2&5, rows 2&5 for Bungees and Catapults. If there are Gargantuars, replace Twin Sunflowers in column 3 with Spikerocks and Pumpkin the plants in column 2 for the Imps. Remove the extra Sunflowers if the Sun reaches maximum (9990 sun) but keep 2 of them in column 5, rows 1&6.

Strategy 3: King Cobless

This is by far the best cobless strategy out there. No Ice-shroom needed! It'll take a few tries to set up, but it's worth it!

Minimum seed slots: 10.

Flag 1-2

Pick these plants:

  • Sunflower
  • Potato Mine
  • Lily Pad
  • Cattail
  • Repeater
  • Torchwood
  • Twin Sunflower
  • Gatling Pea
  • Pumpkin
  • Melon-pult

Plant five Sunflowers on each grass lane. When the first zombie comes, kill it with a Potato Mine. When the second one comes, save enough sun for a Cattail. Plant the Cattail on the first column. When you get the chance, plant a Twin Sunflower on one of the Sunflowers on the first column. Plant Repeaters in the third/fourth column from the right. When a Buckethead Zombie comes, plant a Torchwood on the second lane from the right, or Gatling Pea if you have it, on the same lane as it. If a Buckethead Zombie appears on the pool, plant another Cattail and, if you have it, a Melon-pult on the same lane. By the end, it should look like this:

TSF SF SF SF SF R t
TSF SF SF SF SF R t
C MP
C MP
TSF SF SF SF SF R t
TSF SF SF SF SF R t

TSF = Twin Sunflower

SF = Sunflower

C = Cattail

MP = Melon-pult

R = Repeater/Gatling Pea

t = Torchwood

Underlined = On lily pad.

Bold/I'talics = Pumpkin

3-4

Choose these plants:

  • Lily Pad
  • Repeater
  • Pumpkin
  • Winter Melon
  • Melon-pult
  • Sunflower
  • Twin Sunflower
  • Fume-shroom
  • Gloom Shroom
  • Coffee Bean

Plant Repeaters in front of your other Repeaters. Upgrade the Melon-pults to Winter Melons. Place 3 new Melon-pults in front of your Winter Melons. Do NOT upgrades those Melon-pults to Winter Melons. Your sun is vital. Place Sunflowers in front of your Melon-pults. Plant Gloom-shrooms on the second column from the right in the pool. Pumpkin them. It is good to plant them on the second from the right because of Dolphin Rider Zombies. Upgrade the Sunflowers on the pool to Twin Sunflowers. Now it should look like this:

TSF SF SF SF SF R R t
TSF SF SF SF SF R R t
C WM MP MP MP TSF GS
C WM MP MP MP TSF GS
TSF SF SF SF SF R R t
TSF SF SF SF SF R R t

WM = Winter Melon

GS = Gloom-shroom

This strategy is not finished. It will be later.

Strategy 4: Basic 10 Cob cannon Strategy

It may cost a LOT of sun, but it can last very long, and can kill the zombies rapidly, but it still may not work as you want. It also needs 10 seed slots, which is very expensive on the store (I survived 74 flags with it, but I didn't use it correctly)

Flag 1-2  (Underlined = Extra seed (uneeded))

  • Lily pad = Underlined (on strategy Board)
  • Cob cannon =CB (its downgrade too)
  • Melon-Pult = MP
  • Winter-melon =WM
  • Pumpkin=PK
  • Cattail=CT
  • Twin Sunflower = TW (its downgrade too)
  • Imitater Sunflower = IS
  • Potatomine = PM

​(Rake not needed)

First, plant Sunflowers and its Imitater counterpart, Then, if you see a zombie, plant a Potato Mine 4 squares in front of the zombie, Then plant a Lily Pad in the middle upper row of the Pool, If you can, upgrade it into a Cattail,

Then, plant Cob Cannons behind the Cattail. Try to plant under the first Cob Cannons more Cobs, but do not plant before Flag 3 Cobs in front of them, (okay, if you can shoot the Ambush Zombies before they eat your Cobs, Do it! feel free to do it) then, plant Cob Cannons on the land, 4 squares in front of the house (detailed placing is in the strategy board), then plant Melon-pults behind them, 

Strategy board: ( NO = do not place anything there) (PK with other plant shortening (like PKWM) means that you have to place the plant INSIDE the Pumpkin)

PK  PK  PK  PKWM   CB TW  TW  IS

PK  PK  PK  PKWM   CB  IS  IS  TW

CB  CB  PKCT  NO  NO  PKTW  PKTW  PKIS

(Same as above)

(Same as the Land part above)

(Same as Above) It is not finished yet. I will work on it, when I do have time

Strategy 5: Star856190's Strategy

This is PowerStar856190's strategy. It has survived 103 flags. Some plants are optional. All plants, except Spikerocks and optional Fume-shrooms are pumpkined.

Plants needed

  • Twin Sunflower
  • Cob Cannon
  • Spikerock
  • Winter Melon
  • Cattail
  • Ice-shroom
  • Fume-shroom
  • Gloom-shroom
  • Pumpkin
  • Umbrella Leaf

Strategy

This setup uses Spikerocks to kill Digger Zombies so you don't have to use up much sun for Gloom-shrooms and for replacing damaged Pumpkins. You have a single Ice-shroom on the 6th row

and 3 Twin Sunflowers. The rake is recommended but not needed. The strategy is shown below.

Strategy 10: (if you didn't know) The sunless strategy

I(Lily8763) made this one myself, you don't even need Sunflowers!

Plants NEEDED

Other plants are not needed, but can be used, below are plants which are wanted, but kinda add with other strategies and are not needed.

Plants wanted

You can use moslty anything else. If somebody can add the grid template, i'd like that. :)

Strategy 11: The no losing plants strategy

WinterMagnet's No losing plants strategy

Just do the following template

  • SR WM ( Jalapeno safe area )
  • SR GP UL
  • CT IS IS TS TN ( Insert Doomshroom here )
  • CT IS IS TS TN ( Insert Doomshroom here )
  • SR GP UL
  • SR WM ( Jalapeno safe area )

Do this template. Make sure all plants on ground are in a flowerpot and protected with a pumpkin.

(index)

GP = gatling pea

UL = Umbrella Leaf

WM = winter melon

SP = spikerock

IS = ice shroom

TN = tall nut

TS = twin sunflower


Once done, you must do this before flag 20 ( Check that ).


Wait to a flag with ladder zombies and no vehicle zombies but catapult zombies, make sure there is no jacks.


Keep directing them away from the water using garlics, 1 winter melon is enough.


Assuming you done, here is what the map must look like,remember to switch GPs to WMs


SR(WM)(FS)(FS)

SR(WM)(UL) CC

CT IS IS TS

CT IS IS TS

SR(WM)(UL) CC

SR(WM)(FS)(FS)


() = laddered plants CC = cob cannon FS = Sleeping fume shrooms


Once done, Put gloom-shrooms in place of the cobs,and there are no jalapeno safe areas now.


Don't forget to put cobs in the water in place of the top 2 ice shrooms,you aint' wanting 4,right?


Once done, wake them all up in the water your going to change ( Before setup 3 )


SR(WM)(FS)(FS)[UL]

SR(WM)(UL)(GS)[UL]

CT Cb cn TS TS TN

CT IS IS TS TS TN

SR(WM)(UL)(GS)[UL]

SR(WM)(FS)(FS)[UL]


cb cn = cob cannon

TN = tall-nut

[] = UNLADDERED PUMPKINS

Wait to a flag that meets requirements

NO dolphin riders / snorkel zombies

Above flag 45

No zombonis

No Football zombies

No jacks

No Pogos


So,Put gloom shrooms,at the remaining part of the pool,but remember.

You will put snow pea and gold magnet

On the back put 1 snow pea in the bottom part

and the front gold magnet.


Once done, do the following. Let's say you ended up in 68.

 

Puff shroom 

Coffee bean 

Ice shroom 

Imitater Cherry Bomb 

Cherry Bomb 

Squash 

Doom-shroom 

Lily pad 

Tangle kelp 

Sun-shroom 

Strategy 12: How to play with the magnet-shroom combo ( By WinterMagnet )

Plants :

Winter Melon

Umbrella Leaf

Gloom-Shroom

Twin Sunflower

Gatling Pea

Pumpkin

Obviously,Magnet-shroom.

Please note that upgrades' downgrade

Fill the pool with twinsunflower except for the last 5 blocks.in the 3rd and 4th place a gloom-shroom and the rest is empty

Put magnet-shrooms at the most front.Dont worry about it.Pumpkin it.Put the other parts behind it with 3 winter melons far from the pool and another 2 near them. ( Yes,it is 2 and not 3,3 is for the far )

put gloom-shrooms near it and put a fume-shroom at the most toppart.

Then put gatling peas ( Optional,However it works best with magnet-shroom ) and then place instant everywhere. The pool must be safe.Like the ground.Enjoy the defense!

Strategy 13: Fairly simple survival strategy (By SplatterAndDodge)

This one is fairly simple, but I hate to inform it's not the most effective. It should last at least 20 flags.

Fill the back 2 rows with Sunflowers. Use Cabbage and Kernel pults for the first wave or so. Plant Melon-pults if you can afford them. If not, use Repeaters for now and replace them with Melon-pults over time

Turn the melon-pults in rows 2 and 5 into Winter Melons. Also, upgrade your sunflowes to Twin Sunflowers. Plant pumpkins around them incase of miner zombies.

Replace the sunflowers in Colum 2, Rows 2, 3, 4 and 5. In rows 2 and 5, place Umbrella Leafs. In Rows 3 and 4, place Cattails. Replace the cabbage pults with Cattails in the pool. Turn the ones on land into Kernal pults, and eventually Cob Cannons. Also replace the Kernal Pults in the pool with more Cattails.

In the 4th colum closest to the front, plant Tall-nuts. Place them in pumpkins when you can. Place Gloom Shrooms, again in pumpkins, in the colum in front of then. In the remaining 2 colums, fill the ones on land with Spikerock and the ones in the pool with Gloom Shrooms in pumpkins.

Here's what it should look like when completed
