Two new playable characters are headed to Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville: the Wildflower plant class and TV Head zombie class. Players recently had the chance to try these characters during a limited-time game mode called Minion Madness. This guide will explain how to play the Wildflower and TV Head character classes ahead of their release in September.
The Wildflower plant and TV Head zombie are basically parallel character classes in PvZ: Battle for Neighborville. The abilities for these two characters are essentially the same; they both feature a player-controlled explosive, a throwable explosive, and a respawn-location ability. As Attack characters, they are designed to be used alongside teammates using the same class, spawnable AI minions, and ally pots/bots.
Below you will find an overview of each character’s abilities, along with some gameplay tips for effectively playing as the Wildflower and TV Head character classes in PvZ: Battle for Neighborville.
Special – Receive armor from each nearby ally Wildflower, pot, or minion.
- Wild Life – Place your next respawn location with a flower pot.
- Weed Out – Control a floaty friend who explodes on command.
- Bloom Boom – Throw an explosive flower that hurts enemies and knocks them into the air.
TV Head Abilities
Special – Receive armor from each nearby ally TV Head, bot, or minion.
- Commercial Break – Place your next respawn location with a bucket.
- Yeti, Set, GO! – Control a fast frozen friend who explodes on command.
- Overheated Dinner – Toss an explosively overheated dinner that hurts enemies and knocks them into the air.
- Travel in groups. Both Wildflower and TV Head will receive an armor buff when close to allied minions, pots/bots, or other characters of the same class. The armor percentage will stack, so try to stay close to the team.
- Blend in with minions. Both the Wildflower and TV Head purposely look very similar to their AI counterparts. Your opponents might not pay as much attention to you if they think you’re merely a minion.
- Don’t forget to set your spawn. Both of these character classes have the ability to assign their respawn location anywhere on the map. Make sure to set down your bucket or flower pot close enough to the objective so you can quickly jump back in the action after getting vanquished.
- Hide your respawn container. Enemies can destroy the pot or bucket you use to place your respawn location when visible. Try not to put your respawn container out in the open to avoid detection.
- Use explosives on groups. Whether you use the throwable or controlled explosives for each class, it’s best to aim these explosives at large groups of opponents for maximum damage.
Now that you know how to play as the Wildflower and TV Head character classes, you should be ready to kick some grass in Neighborville. Be sure to check out our other Neighborville content for more guides and updates.
