Basically a cheaper and watered-down version of Squash, Whack-a-Zombie is perfect for destroying soon-to-be annoying zombies with low strength like Jester, Zombie King, Aerobics Instructor, Team Mascot, Tomb Raiser Zombie, or basically anything along those lines. Additionally, it can take out some pesky 3 zombies such as Dolphin Rider, Pool Shark, Abracadaver, etc. However, since this trick cannot destroy zombies with 4 or more strength, it becomes less useful in the later rounds, since there are more zombies that have more than 3. In that case, play Scorched Earth, Weed Whack, or Water Balloons to lower the zombie's strength to allow this trick to destroy it.
Whack-a-Zombie can easily destroy your important zombies in an instant, so beware. Unfortunately, there is no real counter to this trick other than to keep all your zombies' strength at 4 or more. However, against Wall-Knight, take caution doing this, as he can also use Doom-Shroom and Shamrocket.
