Wild West - Day 26 is the twenty-sixth level of Wild West in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When this level is finished for the first time, the player earns a Mystery Gift Box.

Dialogue

(Crazy Dave and Penny appear)
Crazy Dave: I say, Penny, old thing, tally ho! Pip-pip and such!
Penny: We are in the Wild West, User Dave. Not Victorian England.
Crazy Dave: There's a difference?
Penny: We are likely to encounter far more ferocious former frontiersmen, User Dave.
Penny: We will need upgraded plants to stake any claim.
(Crazy Dave and Penny leave)

Difficulty

Like Penny said in the dialogue, there will be more ferocious and harder zombies to defeat, including high concentrations of Prospector Zombies, Chicken Wrangler Zombies, and Poncho Zombies. Zombie Bulls and Pianist Zombies, though rather few, can still cause a major rapture in your defenses if not dealt with strategically. Upgraded plants are important for this level, as three Wild West Gargantuars, including one very early into the level, most likely would be too much for Level 1 plants to withstand.

Waves

The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Strategies

Strategy 1

Created by: Anonymous230385
  • Use Gold Bloom whenever possible.
  • Going left to right, plant a column of Twin Sunflowers in column 4, then Bonk Choys in column 5 and later, column 2 if applicable.
  • When the first Conehead Cowboys appear, quickly plant Bonk Choys in their rows. Better to get a good defense early than later.
  • When possible, use Shrinking Violet to decrease zombie toughness. There are many Buckethead Cowboys in this level, but Shrinking Violet can make short work of them.
  • Perhaps the biggest threat are the Wild West Gargantuars. They are extremely tough and their brands can kill any plant in one smash, but again, Shrinking Violet can decrease their effectiveness, as well as prevent them from throwing their Imp.
  • It is possible for Prospector Zombies to launch themselves into the first column, but that's why I left the second column blank. If one does jump past your defenses, plant a Bonk Choy in its respective row to deal with it. Their toughness is not too high to pose a real threat to level 6 Bonk Choys.
  • Optionally, you could plant a Repeater in the column one's minecart for support, but just be wary of Prospector Zombies.

Strategy 2

Created by: MartinUWH
  • Use Gold Bloom whenever possible.
  • Plant a column of Twin Sunflowers in column 4, then Primal Peashooters in column 5, Tall-Nuts in column 6 and Spikerock in column 7 (as sun and recharge time allow). Make sure that you have a combination of at least two of these three plants in each row, in order to prevent the zombies from getting through.
  • Add Homing Thistles in column 2, to counteract the Prospector Zombies, and Winter Melons on the mine carts in columns 1 and 3 to damage and slow the zombie horde.
  • You can also add Spikerocks in column 9, but if you do that, make sure that you leave the mine cart in column 8 empty, so that you still have somewhere to plant your Gold Bloom(s).

Trivia

  • This is the first Wild West level in which the regular Cowboy Zombie does not appear.
