Turbo Twister is the second ability for Super Brainz in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. When used, Super Brainz will spin in a manner similar to the Jester Zombie. While spinning, it will deal 8-9 damage continuously to plants it hits. This ability will slow down the affected plants while increasing Super Brainz' speed. Super Brainz also takes 65% less damage while using this ability, similar to abilities like Engineer's Big Bolt Blaster. It can be canceled early if he is hit by an attack that does knockback such as Big Stump's Club Bash.
The Turbo Twister transforms Super Brainz into a chaotic whirlwind, damaging Plants as they're sucked towards him.
Pairing this with Heroic Kick can help you quickly take opponents who are caught out of position. This can also be used to escape plants if you are at low health as you take much less damage while using the ability.
The Turbo Twister can be hard to escape, slowing down any plant caught in it. Using the Chomper's Spikeweed or Burrow, Rose's Time Snare or Goatify, Citron's Spin Dash or EMPeach will force Super Brainz to automatically cancel the ability, only if they end up managing to run into it. It is also not recommended to attack Super Brainz when he's using this ability due to the fact he will severely reduce damage dealt to him unless he's at critically low health.
