Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is the second Plants vs. Zombies shooter game for the Garden Warfare spin-off series.

This game has had a few concept ideas scrapped before release and had some that were left over from prototypes. The game has been hacked to reveal some parts of the game has been unreleased that may never be added or could be added in the future.

Laser Goat

The Laser Goat is an extremely unfinished character that is only obtainable through hacking. It is on both the plants and the zombies' side. It has green armor if it's on the plants' side, and dark purple armor if it's on the zombies' side. It can jump high and even has a double jump like the Imp. You can actually see this character in-game currently, but only when someone hacks it in on PC and it is extremely rare. Only one player, Lop0l0v3r (a player who is famously known for hacking Garden Warfare), has ever been known to have hacked it in. Therefore, it is extremely rare to see. Its primary weapon currently has an unfinished name, reading "ID_CUS_H_WEAPON_LASERGOAT_PRIMARY" when vanquished by it. Its icon, sounds, and projectiles are the same as Hover Goat-3000's, possibly meaning that it could be an unfinished variant or just that PopCap forgot to remove the prototype version in the code.


  • Damage Buff Booster Beam
  • Healing Gearshifter -An ability that heals teammates nearby
  • Mech-Assault -An ability that tosses a grenade that explodes and deals 10 damage

Upcoming Abilities

Unknown alternate Goatify

Unknown what it does.


An alternate ability for the Shuck Shot, it fires 6 rockets in quick succession, similar to the Multi-Rocket and can do a maximum of 183 concentrated damage. Note that the projectiles themselves appear to move slightly slower and they have the same cooldown.

Bling Gatling

An alternate ability for the Pea Gatling, the Bling Gatling is a reskin of its alternate ability, the Retro Gatling.

Red Artichoke

A variation of the Artichoke Drone that moves faster, has 3 "Red Corn" strikes, but it only has five health. Its primary weapon is Artichoke Hearts, which is the same as Artichoke Drone but it can fire for a considerably longer time than its counterparts despite dealing lower damage per shot. It appears to also have increased attack speed as well.

Red Artichoke's Corn Strike

The Corn Strike that Red Artichoke uses will drop 3 red-tinted explosive cobs. This attack does significantly lower damage though the cobs explode together and the cooldown is shorter.

Dark Garlic Drone

A variation of the Garlic Drone, the Dark Garlic Drone is not able to consistently fire, but has a semi automatic method. The shots it fires deal increased damage and have small splash damage. Its primary weapon is Dark Garlic.

Dark Garlic Drone's Corn Strike

The explosions are delayed though they seem to deal more damage than the normal Corn Strike.

Unknown spike ability

Unknown what it does. From its design, it's possible that it is a scrapped Cactus ability from Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, and that it's leftover from that game and was accidentally in the second game's code.

Bling Maiden

The bling version of the Iron Maiden.

Matrix Tallnut

A variation of the Tallnut Battlement that allows storage of up to 5 and also regenerates health.

Unknown sprint ability for Torchwood

An ability for the Torchwood that acts similarly to the All-Star's Sprint Tackle ability, the Torchwood will rush forward and knock-back any Zombies in his path. It is unknown which standard ability this will replace. It's possible this was an early version of another Torchwood ability.

Looty Booty Barrel Blast

The bling version of the Barrel Blast.

Future Parrot Pal

An alternate ability for the Parrot Pal. It has 20 health, and deals more damage than the standard Parrot Pal. Its primary weapon is the Parrot Pulse, like its vanilla counterpart.

Future Parrot Pal's Eggsplosion

Does less damage than the normal Eggsplosion, but has a larger radius. Its name ends with "Cannon"

Unknown alternate Cannon Rodeo ability

It could be an alternate ability or just a scrapped icon to exit the Cannon Rodeo.

Armored Bling Station

The bling version of the Armored Heal Station. It was discovered through a glitch where it could be applied, but in-game it would just have the "locked ability" symbol, and could not be used.

Unknown alternate Big Bolt Blaster

This ability is unknown, but it used the normal Big Bolt Blaster as its icon as a placeholder.


Imitater is an upcoming boss hunt in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It will hop around the map until it finds a player, and then it will spin around, creating shockwaves that transform into other bosses.

The Imitater even has its own 3D model.

So far, it is unknown if it will be released, since PopCap has not put in any new boss hunts since January. However, after this current Boss Hunt cycle will end in late September, it might be added in October.

Unused boss icons, but some are present in the final game.

Unconfirmed features and events

Captain Curse (either a Captain Deadbeard variant or possibly a boss).

The Gateholder (Boss Hunt Boss)

Beetdown Beets (Boss Hunt Boss)

Mecha-Worm 2300 (Boss Hunt Boss)
