The torch is the weapon used by Explorer Zombie and its Chinese counterparts. It can instantly burn any plant it touches, but can be extinguished by Iceberg Lettuce, Snow Pea's and Winter Melon's projectiles, Hurrikale's wind, Power Snow and Cold Snapdragon's breath. In the Chinese version, Freeze Mushroom can also extinguish its flame.

For more strategies, see Explorer Zombie.

Ice-based plants can extinguish the torch. However, it should be noted that fire damage from Snapdragons, fire peas from Torchwood or Fire Peashooter, fire from Flame Mushroom, and Pepper-pult's fire peppers will relight the torch if it has been extinguished.


  • Extinguishing the torch will earn players the achievement No Smoking.
  • Porter Gargantuar also carries a torch, but it doesn't burn plants, as the torch is not lit. Instead, it uses the unlit torch to smash plants. The torch is lit in the Lost City Part 1 trailer and in the almanac image before the 3.9 update.
