Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare: Pea Shooter Variants Guide

Need to know about every Peashooter variant? Then, check out this guide for details about what each variant does!

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare has many class variants. For the plants, many of them add elemental effects to their primary attacks. Unlocking them is very time-consuming because you need a lot of coins.

40k guarantees a character, but that's it. The lower packs give you pieces you must collect to unlock a character. If you want tips on getting the most coins, look at my Coins Guide.

I'll go over every Peashooter variant in the game and explain what they do. If you would like an overall guide of the Peashooter class, check out my Peashooter Guide.

This guide will cover everything about the Peashooter variants including:

  • Peashooter Variants - Each variant and what they do.
  • Class Variant Tips - Tips for each variant, when necessary.

  • It is also helpful to snipe Zombies from far distances before they even reach a garden in Gardens and Graveyards.

Law Pea 
  • Takes away the splash damage and makes the shots more precise. They are similar to Agent Pea's shots except they have less ammo. They also shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger, so a lot faster than Agent Pea.
