Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare: All-Star Variants Guide

Want to know each All-Star variant? Then, check out this detailed guide and choose your favorite sport!

All-Stars are a pretty bulky class, but don't seem to get as much play at the other Zombie classes in Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. All-Stars are great for suppression and have a high rate of fire. Their high health, and long firing time due to the overheat function, makes them a great class to provide cover for your teammates. They also have shields that come in handy when capturing gardens in Gardens and Graveyards.

I'll be going over each All-Star variant, what they do, and tips for each when needed. I'll be giving details on their ammo, damage, range, and more as well. You'll have all the info needed to pick an All-Star that best fits you. If you want the basics on the All-Star class, visit my All-Star class guide.

    Hey man,

    I know it's a pretty basic question but I just got my first new character it's the cricket star all star. For some reason when I play with the all star though it's still the football guy shooting the footballs. Is there a way to change this character to the new one? Thanks
