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.

  • This Peashooter is best used for sniping out of all of them. You can make quick, precision shots, especially on rooftops. Keep in mind you will do more damage closer, so move up if you need to kill someone quickly.
  • 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.

    • Range - Mid
  • Law Pea look like a lesser version of Agent Pea at first glance, until you start shooting. Not having any delay between shots make up for only having 6. If you are precise, you can take zombies down quickly with this variant.

That's it for the Peashooter variants. If you have any questions, or more info/tips for any of the variants, let me know in the comments!

    How to get Ice Pea???
  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    You unlock it, like all character variants, by buying sticker packs. Also, if you level Peashooter to 10, you can unlock it that way.
  • Lindsay_1408
    In the "destroy nemesis" challenge, I've killed multiple foot soldier zombies using the peashooter plant and it's not counting as my "5 nemesis kills". what am i doing wrong?
  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    A nemesis is someone who killed you. So, find the person who killed you last and kill them.

    EDIT: I think it is someone who killed you multiple times, but I don't know how many.
  • IamProfundis
    Good job man, looks like you're the first to assemble anything comprehensive for a class variant guide. Keep it up, I'd love to read about the other classes.
  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    Thanks, I'll be doing one for each class when I get the info.
