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.
