Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 Free DLC Plus Achivements

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 arrived and earlier this month, PopCop released the first set of DLC updates for the game. The free Graveyard Variety Pack made some crucial changes to gameplay including fixing annoying bugs, a new map and more. Let’s break down what you can expect to see in the Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 update.


The character of Rose has been completely revamped with developers transforming her back into a support role. These updates mean that she has reduced health, and has had changes added to her homing abilities. You, as the player, will need to lead the target for her to have a successful hit. The variants of fire and ice also were slowed down. A few more updates for Rose came as well:

  • Slightly reduced rate of fire for Magic Thistles
  • Significantly reduced length a victim is trapped in Time Snare
  • Changed how Goatify ability works so that damage does not break Goatify, creating a more predictable and less jarring experience and lowered time as a goat

Other characters in the Plants vs. Zombies game got an update as well. Corn received an increase in health and also an improvement in his long range damage. He’s now an able fighter.  Captain Deadbeard had some speed improvements made, and some damage reductions were made to Captain Partyman.  Super Brainz had some slight cooldown reduction, and the decay was removed from the Toxic Brainz legendary meter. Imps’ tuning received an update, with a weapon improvement so he has a better chance of survival.

The other updates:

  • Reduced length of round timer between rounds in Multiplayer matches
  • Imp now properly earns XP when in Mech
  • Players can now see other players’ Backyard customizations when visiting their Backyard
  • Players can now see stats on other players stats boards when visiting their Backyard
  • Improved audio for garlic drone primary weapon
  • Setting HUD to “Light” now also hides XP Meter
  • Major improvements to hit reaction “flinching” animations
  • A plethora of quality & bug fixes
  • Added new co-op/team vanquish map “Aqua Center” which may seem familiar, yet completely different!
  • Added night version of the Great White North map to the Turf Takeover Playlist
  • Added Hide n’ Find missions to Backyard Battleground
  • Added Bot & Pot Missions to Backyard Battleground
  • Added unique character variant images to group HUD
  • World Options now shows all friends playing the game, not just the joinable ones
  • Added classic setting in options to change primary fire button (PS4 Only)
  • Added Aim Sensitivity slider to now allow more precise control over aim speed (for PC this is broken up into both mouse and gamepad sensitivity)
  • Added ability to select between hold button to aim or toggle button to Aim
  • Added kick player option to the in-game scoreboard for easy access (player hosted modes only)
  • Added difficulty to Pause Menu for some game modes
  • Game Now defaults to common chat in Private Matches
  • Added ability to view scoreboard while vanquished

The new map, Aqua Center, is a zombie version of the Caroline’s Garden Centre, and is a home for zombie fish and water-themed zombie weaponry.

  1. Garden Warfare is a huge upgrade.

  2. This Plants v. Zombies hasn’t been all that tight yet. I am about to give up on it altogether.

  3. This looks like a walloping good time. Which is what the game is known for after all.
