The Complete Zombie
You've won every trophy, climbed every mountain, defeated every zombie, planted every plant. Congratulations!
This trophy will unlock once you have unlocked all of the other 42 trophies in the game.
Home Lawn Security
Complete adventure mode
Once you complete Adventure Mode the trophy will unlock. There are many strategies that you can use to complete each level. Always pay attention to the zombies that they show you at the beginning of each level to the right of the bushes. This will help you decide which plants to choose. Also keep in mind the time of day as the plants you need on Daytime levels will vary greatly from Night, Water, Fog and the Roof.
Master of Morticulture
Collect all 49 plants in the game This will unlock after you buy all of the 49 plants in the game. To get all of the plants you must beat Adventure Mode and buy all the Upgrade Plants and the Imitator from Crazy Dave's shop. You will need $98,000 to buy all of the Upgrade Plants and the Imitator. If you don't have enough money to buy the remaining plants after completing Adventure Mode then work on the Mini-Games and Survival Modes. Both of these modes will give you a lot of money. Also, tend to your Zen Garden regularly as this will also give you money.
Here is a screenshot showing all 49 plants that you must get:
Grow the Tree of Wisdom to at least 100 feet
You will need $225,000 to purchase the Tree of Wisdom and the 95 bags of Tree Food that you will need to fertilize it. Once you purchase the Tree of Wisdom, Crazy Dave will give you 5 free bags of Tree Food. You will need 95 more bags to grow the Tree of Wisdom to 100 feet. Sell any full-grown plants that you have. If you have any copies of plants save one of each kind as this will help you get organized for Enlightened. You will get $8000 for full-grown Day plants and $10,000 for full-grown Night and Water plants.
Crash of the Titan
Defeat your first Gargantuar
You will encounter your first Gargantuar on level 5-8. There will be 2 Gargantuars in this level. Gargantuars are best defeated by using instant kill explosive plants. It takes 2 Jalapenos to kill one Gargantuar. Some other great instant kills that you can use are: Cherry Bombs, Squash, Doom-Shroom and Cob Cannons. You can also delay a Gargantuar using Spikerocks as they take nine smashes to disappear. Ice-shrooms also help to delay Gargantuars. Once you kill the first Gargantuar the trophy will unlock.
Don't Pea in the Pool
Complete a daytime pool level without using Pea-shooters of any kind
In order to unlock this trophy you cannot use any Pea-shooters. Here are the plants that I used to unlock this trophy:
Fume-shroom, Gloom-shroom, Coffee Bean, Garlic and Spikeweed
If you use this method on Last Stand you will also unlock Poolís Closed and Sol Invictus. See Sol Invictus for a video showing how to unlock this trophy.
Alive and Planting
Survive 40 waves of pure zombie ferocity
Here is a video that I made showing how I got to 40 waves:
Soil your Plants
Plant your first 10 peashooters
You will get this achievement very easily in the first 4 levels of Adventure Mode. The Peashooter is the first plant that you are given. Once you have planted 10 peashooters the trophy will unlock.
Roll Some Heads
Bowl over 5 zombies with a single Wall-nut
For this trophy you need to kill 5 zombies with a single Wall-nut. You can only do this with the Wall-nuts. The Explode-o-nuts and Giant Wall-nuts do not count. The best way to get this trophy is to wait for a large wave of zombies to come out. Roll a Wall-nut at the zombie that is closest to you so that it hits them and then ricochets off of several zombies. A gold coin will drop from the zombies if you have done this correctly.
Wall-nut Bowling 2 is probably the easiest level to choose for this trophy as there are many more zombies. You can also save a few zombies from the last wave alive until a new wave of zombies appears and then ricochet the Wall-nut off of them.
Alternatively, you could get this trophy on Wall-nut Bowling while going for Close Shave and get a few trophies at once.
Blast 10 zombies at once with a Cherry Bomb! This trophy can be obtained on several different levels. You will want to try it on a level that has huge waves of zombies. It is easier if you use Wall-nuts or Tall-nuts to block the zombies and get them built up in one area. Once there is a large group of 10 or more gathered at the nuts use a cherry bomb in the middle of the group. If you successfully killed 10 or more zombies you will unlock the trophy.
It may also help if you dig up any shooting plants that you have when you see a huge wave of zombies coming so that they donít die before you have a chance to bomb them. You can achieve this trophy pretty easily on Level 1-10, Survival Hard, Survival Endless, and Last Stand.
Survive the zombie onslaught after all lawnmowers have been used This is another easy trophy that you can obtain on several different levels. Start off by playing the level the way you normally would. Dig up all of your plants when the final wave of zombies appear. Let them all get run over by the lawnmowers to complete the level. Once the level ends the trophy will unlock.
You can also get this trophy pretty easily in Wall-nut Bowling. Start the level the way you usually would and try to survive without using any of your lawnmowers until the final wave of zombies appear. If a couple of your lawnmowers are used before the final wave donít worry. The zombies will only come out on the lanes that still have lawnmowers in them for the final wave. Once the final wave of zombies come out donít do anything. Just let your lawnmowers run over them. Once the last zombie is killed and the level is complete the trophy will unlock. If you use this method you can also unlock Last Mown Standing at the same time.
Go trunk driving and spend at least $25,000 on Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies To unlock this trophy you must spend $25,000 in Crazy Daveís shop. You will most likely obtain this while working on the Master of Morticulture trophy as you have to buy 9 plants to get all 49 plants. You can get money a variety of ways. You will get coins and diamonds while playing levels in Adventure Mode, Mini-games, and Survival. The coins will drop randomly after killing zombies. Diamonds will also drop randomly, but are worth $1000.
You can also get money by watering, fertilizing and spraying bug spray on your plants. Also, if you choose to purchase the phonograph you will get 1-3 gold coins every time you play phonograph music for your plants (when they ask for it).
You can get to Crazy Daveís Shop the following ways:
1. Go to the Main Screen then Extras then Shop and press
2. In the Zen Garden or at The Tree Of Wisdom press
3. In between rounds press
Once you have spent $25,000 at Crazy Daveís Shop the trophy will unlock.
Nom Nom Nom
Stop the horde using only the Sunflower, Wall-Nut, and Chomper on any level In order to unlock this trophy you can only use the Sunflower, Wall-nut, and Chomper to complete a level. You can choose other plants for your seed slots, but do not place them or the trophy will not unlock. I recommend trying to get this on one of the Daytime levels as there are less zombies.
Defeat a normal roof level without using any Catapult plants In order to unlock this trophy you need to complete a roof level without using any Catapult plants. These include the Cabbage-pult, Kernel-pult, and Melon-pult. I was able to get this trophy pretty easily on one of the first roof levels in Adventure Mode. You can also unlock it in Survival: Roof as shown in the video below. I used the Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Flowerpot, Squash, Snowpea, Threepeater, Wall-nut and Tall-nut. You will want to place your offensive plants close to the center of the roof or to the right. If you place them too far to the left they wonít shoot very far because of the angle of the roof. See the video below to see how I set things up.
Discover the Yeti zombie You will get this trophy while going for Second Life on your second playthrough of Adventure Mode. When you get to Level 4-10 it will be a stormy dark Mini-game. The Yeti Zombie will appear near the second flag and when he does the trophy will unlock. You do not need to kill him to get the trophy, but if you do kill him you will get 3 diamonds ($3000).
Pick up 30 coins in a row on a single level without letting any disappear
You will probably get this trophy without trying during one of the mini-games. Pick up coins whenever you see them and donít let any disappear. Once you have picked up 30 coins in a row the trophy will unlock. I got this trophy during Last Stand while I was going for Sol Invictus.
Alternately, you could get this while going for Close Shave as more than 30 coins will appear if you ricochet the Wall-nuts off of zombies.
Accumulate 8,000 sun during a single level This is another trophy that you will probably unlock while completing one of the Survival modes or one of the levels with more flags. In order to get the most sun, plant sunflowers in the first 2-3 columns. Upgrade all of them with Twin Sunflowers. Play through the level as you normally would, but try not to spend your sun on too much if you can. After you have your offensive plants setup you can place more sun to help speed up the process. In the video below I show how you can start off with two columns of sun then eventually add more which can really help speed things up.
If you find that you are nearing the end of the level and that you arenít going to make it to 8,000 sun, then remove all of your offensive plants and plant Wall-nuts and/or Tall-nuts in front of the zombies during the Final Wave. This will give you the chance to accumulate the rest of the sun that you need. Once you have reached 8,000 sun the trophy will unlock.
Defeat 2 Gargantuars with Corn Cob missiles in a single level
You can achieve this trophy during Level 5-8 or 5-9 when you first encounter Gargantuars. You can also unlock this trophy in Survival: Endless. First you will want to plant Kernel-pults and then upgrade them to the Cob Cannon. You will need to place 2 Kernel-pults next to each other horizontally in order to upgrade them to a Cob Cannon.
It takes two shots with the Cob Cannon to kill a single Gargantuar. In order to kill them more effectively, use an instant kill plant like the Jalapeno or Cherry Bomb first then finish them off with the Cob Cannon. Once you have killed 2 Gargantuars with the Cob Cannon in a single level you will unlock the trophy. If you make 5 Corn Cob missiles in this level you can also unlock Defcorn-5.
Complete a daytime level by planting only Mushrooms and Coffee Beans This is a tricky trophy that requires good timing and strategizing. I recommend trying to get this on your second playthrough of Adventure Mode on one of the first daytime levels as there wonít be as many flags or zombies. You can also get this on Survival: Day. If you make it to the first flag successfully and only planted Mushrooms and Coffee Beans the trophy will unlock at the end of the first flag. In the video below I show how to survive to the first flag on Survival: Day.
I used Sun-shroom, Puff-shroom, Fume-shroom, and Coffee Beans.
No Fungus Among Us
Complete a nighttime level without planting any Mushrooms For this trophy you must complete a nighttime level without using any Mushrooms. This includes the Sun-shroom. I was able to get this trophy by planting Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Potato-mine, Imitator Potato-mine, Squash, Snowpea, Starfruit, Wall-nut and Grave-buster. I did this on one of the earlier levels of nighttime Adventure Mode. You could also try to get this trophy on Survival: Night or Survival: Night (Hard) as I show in the video below.
Last Mown Standing
Defeat the last zombie in a level with a lawn mower
This trophy will unlock when you mow over the last zombie in a level. You could get this trophy while you are going for Close Shave on Wall-nut Bowling. Just follow the method I show in the video and the trophy will be yours.
20 Below Zero
Immobilize 20 full-sized zombies with a single Ice-shroom This trophy can be obtained in Last Stand. It can also be obtained when there is a large final wave. Use defensive plants like Wall-nuts and Tall-nuts to slow the zombies down and when there are 20 zombies on the screen use the Ice-shroom and a coffee bean (if you are doing this on a daytime level). You can also remove any offensive plants once you see a big wave coming to ensure that you don't kill any zombies by accident. If you successfully freeze 20 or more zombies the trophy will unlock.
Keep 10 Twin Sunflowers alive in a single level
For this trophy 10 Twin sunflowers must still be alive by the time the level ends. If you have reached the final wave and are having trouble then plant a Wall-nut in front of the last zombie and dig up any offensive plants. Plant the Sunflowers that you need and when you have 10 Twin Sunflowers you can kill the remaining zombie.
Complete a level using only explosive plants to kill zombies For this trophy you can only use explosive plants to kill zombies.
The following are explosive plants:
You can also use Sunflowers, Wall-nuts, Tall-nuts, Pumpkins and Garlic as they donít attack zombies. Also, if you kill a zombie with a Garden Rake, Lawn Mower, Pool Cleaner, or Roof Cleaner it will not count and you will have to start over. Last Stand is a good level to try to unlock this trophy. In Last Stand you have enough Sun to plant 12 Kernel-pults, 6 Cob Cannons, 6 Lily Pads, and 12 Wall-nuts. You could also get Defcorn 5 at the same time. When you plant your Kernel-pults for your Cob Cannons donít let any of the Kernel-pults shoot zombies or the trophy will not unlock. You can only use the Cob Cannons as they are explosive.
I was able to achieve this trophy on Survival: Day. I used Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Potato Mine, Cherry Bomb, Jalapeno, Imitator Jalapeno, Doom-shroom, and Coffee Bean. Once I made it to Flag 1 the trophy unlocked. It may also help if you wait until you purchase the Imitator to go for this trophy as you will be able to have one more explosive plant. It also helps if you purchase all the extra seed slots.
Another level that you could easily unlock this trophy on is Zombotany. If you achieve this on Zombotany you will also unlock Wall-Not Attack.
- Cherry Bomb
- Potato Mine
- Doom-shroom (use Coffee Bean if daytime)
- Ice-shroom (use Coffee Bean if daytime)
- Cob Cannon
Lawn Mower Man
Kill 10 zombies with a single lawn mower
This trophy can be unlocked while you work on Close Shave. If you run over 10 or more zombies with a single lawn mower the trophy will unlock. The easiest levels for this are probably Wall-nut Bowling and Wall-nut Bowling 2. When the final wave of zombies come remove any offensive plants so that you can run over 10 or more with a single lawn mower without any of them dying from your plants. Once 10 or more zombies have been mowed over this trophy will be yours.
Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, you've one level to destroy 3 bobsleds, its Jalapeno time!
The best level to get this trophy on is the Mini-Game Bobsled Bonanza because there are many bobsleds that come out. You need to destroy 3 different Zombie Bobsled Teams with Jalapenos before they get out of their bobsled. I would wait until you have the Imitator as it will really help to have 2 Jalapenos to work with. You do not need to finish the level to unlock the trophy. Once you have successfully destroyed 3 bobsleds the trophy will unlock. You can also attempt this on Adventure Mode Level 3-10 as there are also bobsleds on that level.
Build 5 Cob Cannons in a single level This trophy can be done very easily on Last Stand. Plant 10 Kernel-pults and upgrade them with Cob Cannons. After youíre done setting up your 5 Cob Cannons press to being the onslaught. The trophy should unlock right away. You can then either quit out of the game or keep playing and try to get Popcorn Party or Pyromaniac.
Crush 5 zombies with a single Squash
This trophy can be obtained on several levels. I would try to wait until the Final Wave and then plant a Wall-nut or Tall-nut at the end of a row. Remove any offensive plants that you have in that row so that none of your zombies accidentally get killed. Wait until a group of 5 or more is together then place your Squash to the left of the Wall-nut or Tall-nut so that it gets all of them at once. Once you kill 5 zombies with a single Squash the trophy will unlock.
Complete an extremely foggy level with using Planterns or Blovers
This trophy can be unlocked by playing Level 4-7, 4-8 or 4-9 in Adventure Mode. These levels are extremely foggy. It is not very difficult to finish the level without using Planterns or Blovers. You will have limited visibility on the right side of your screen, but if you place your plants right then you wonít have any need to worry. I was able to unlock this trophy by using Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Puff-shroom, Lily Pad, Cattail, Squash, Snow Pea, Threepeater, Tall-nut and Spikeweed. You can get this trophy on your first playthrough of Adventure Mode or wait until your second playthrough when you have enough money to buy more seed slots.
Also, it should be noted that you can still use Torchwood. You can place these in the fog and they will help increase your visibility.
Complete a pool level without using water plants
I obtained this trophy using the same strategy I used for Donít Pea in the Pool. If you use this strategy on Last Stand you can also obtain Sol Invictus.
Plant a Winter Melon on every lane
This trophy can easily be unlocked in Last Stand once you have purchased the Winter Melon card. Place a Lily pad in two of the water lanes then place a Melon-pult in every lane. Upgrade the Melon-pults with Winter Melons and the trophy will unlock.
Alternatively, you can also achieve this trophy fairly easily on any of the Survival levels and any daytime levels that have 3 waves. I donít recommend attempting this trophy on any of the shorter levels as it takes the Winter Melon a long time to recharge. I also recommend that you attempt this on a Day, Night or Roof Level as they only have 5 lanes.
Complete Adventure mode a second time
This trophy is straightforward. Just complete Adventure mode a second time and the trophy will unlock. Keep in mind that the second time around Crazy Dave will be picking the first 3 plants at the beginning of every level. Also, there will be more zombies and an extra flag will be added to each level (except 5-10). In Levels 1-6 and 2-1 Conehead zombies will be added. Also, on Level 5-10 Dr. Zomboss will have more health.
Along the way you will be able to go for more trophies as you will have more plants to choose from and extra seed slots. Also, stay on the lookout for the Yeti zombie in Level 4-10.
Get 3 diamonds in Slot Machine * Thanks to a patch you can now get this trophy very easily. Make sure that you install the patch prior to attempting this trophy. *
This trophy is in the mini-game called "Slot Machine." Pull the lever on the slot machine until you get three of a kind and the trophy will unlock.
For nostalgia purposes if you'd like to see how annoying this trophy was before the patch look below in the spoiler:
Complete Column Like You See'em without using Jalapenos
Column Like You Seeíem takes place on the roof. Random cards will appear and when you select one and place it the whole column will be filled with that plant (if you have a flower pot in each column). Skip past the jalapenos and try to survive without them. I recommend that you also try to save any instant kills you are given like Squash and save them for emergencies. Also, when you get Pumpkins use them to protect your Melon-pults and Magnet-shrooms. Complete the level without using any Jalapenos and this shiny silver trophy will be yours.
Collect all Zen Garden, Mushroom Garden and Aquarium Garden plants This trophy is another one that is very luck-based and time consuming. You need to collect all 39 plants in the Zen Garden and have them in the garden all at the same time. You do not need the Flower Pot, Imitator, or Upgrade Plants. Zen Garden plants are dropped by zombies randomly, but there are some things you can do to increase your chances of getting them.
Also, keep in mind that certain levels will have an increased chance for dropping certain types of plants.
- Play levels that have a high zombie density so that more presents can be dropped
- I recommend any of the Survival Modes and Last Stand.
- Keep 10 chocolate at all times so that zombies can't drop chocolate. (Sorry Stinky the Snail!)
*Here is a tip from ATRS_1992 that should really help you get this trophy faster:
It appears that each row of plants in the Almanac represent the type of plants that are going to pop up in the respective Survival Modes.
Survival Day will give these plants:
Survival Night will give these plants:
Survival Pool (Day) will give these plants:
Survival Fog will give you these plants:
Survival Roof will give these plants:
Of course more gifts will also pop up if you play the Hard mode of these levels.
Upgrade all your plants in Beghouled
You can get this trophy while working on the Mini-games for Beyond the Grave. In Beghouled you get Sun by making matches of 3. Once you have enough Sun from making matches upgrade your plants by purchasing their large versions in the Seed slots.
Here are the costs of the items in your Seed slots:
Fill a crater: 200
Try to make matches as quickly as possible to get Sun more quickly. Upgrade the less useful plants first so that you can avoid spending your Sun on Refreshes and Crater-filling. Once you purchase the Repeater, Gloom-shroom, and Tall-nut the trophy will unlock.
Grow 10 Zen Garden plants to full size
This trophy is very simple. Try to visit your Zen Garden several times each day so that you can water and fertilize your plants. A plant will let you know what it needs by showing a symbol in a thought bubble above its head. If it has a water drop it needs to be watered and if it has a fertilizer bag it needs to be fertilized. You will know when a plant has grown to full size when it gives you a Diamond after you fertilize it. Once you have grown 10 plants to full size the trophy will unlock.
Complete ZomBotany without using Wall-nuts, Tall-nuts or Pumpkins You can unlock Pyromaniac at the same time if you use this strategy. For your plants choose: Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Potato Mine, Imitator Potato Mine, Garlic, Cherry Bomb, Jalapeno, Ice-shroom, Doom-shroom and Coffee Bean. Place two Garlic at the end of the top row and plant Sunflowers and Twin Sunflowers in this row only. Plant Potato Mines and Imitator Potato Mines in the the meantime as they are cheap and donít take very long to recharge. When your first row is filled up with Sunflowers place two more Garlic at the end of the bottom row. Fill this row up with Sunflowers and Twin Sunflowers. Next place two Garlic at the end of the middle row. Use this row pretty much exclusively for your Doom-shrooms as they will leave craters behind. With this setup you will now have zombies in only two lanes. Use this to your advantage by planting Potato Mines at the beginning of the two lanes they are walking in. When there is a group of zombies use a Cherry Bomb or the Doom-shroom and a Coffee Bean to kill the whole group. You can also use an Jalapeno while they recharge and an Ice-shroom if you need to slow the zombies down.
If you follow these steps you should have no problem completing ZomBotany and getting this trophy plus Pyromaniac.
Beyond the Grave
Beat all 20 mini games
For this trophy you must beat all 20 of the Mini Games. Some of them are pretty hard, but you can retry them as many times as you want. Just play through them and try to beat them. If you are having any trouble try to change up your strategy as sometimes thatís all it takes to beat a level. Check the trophy guide before you do any Mini Games as there are a few trophies that you can get while you are working on them. Once you have completed all 20 Mini Games the trophy will unlock.
Complete Seeing Stars before the first Flag Zombie appears Seeing Stars is a Mini-game level. In order to pass the level you need to have a Starfruit in each spot where there is an outline of a Star on the grass. If you do this before the first Flag Zombie appears the trophy will unlock. You will know when the first Flag Zombie is about to appear when it says ďA Huge Wave of Zombies is Approaching!Ē
Here is the strategy that I used. Pick the following plants: Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Starfruit, Imitator Starfruit, Potato Mine, Squash, Puff-shroom, and Sun-shroom. Do not worry about getting the Coffee Bean as you donít need to wake the Puff-shroom or Sun-shroom up. You will only need the Puff-shroom and Sun-shroom to give the zombies something to eat to slow them down.
Start by placing Sunflower so that you can start accumulating Sun. While you do this also place Puff-shroom to the far right in each lane. Place a Potato Mine in the first row of the third lane as a back-up. Kill off any zombies in the beginning with Potato Mines and Squash. You cannot place anything except Starfruit in the spots that are outlined with a Star. Start placing Starfruit and Imitator Starfruit as soon as you can while still planting Sunflower and Puff-shroom. You can also upgrade your Sunflower to Twin Sunflower to get Sun more quickly. Once you have enough Starfruit planted they will start taking care of the zombies so that you can focus on getting more Sun.
Once you have filled all of the Star outlines the level will end. If you complete the level before the first Flag Zombie appears the trophy will unlock.
Complete Last Stand with 2,000 sun remaining In order to unlock this trophy you must complete Last Stand with 2,000 sun remaining. This is not an easy feat. To unlock this trophy I used Fume-shrooms, Gloom-shrooms, Coffee Beans, Garlic and Spikeweed. After placing my setup I only spent sun on Garlic when they were eaten by the zombies. If you follow this setup and only replace Garlic as needed you will be sure to have 2,000 sun remaining. You can also unlock Donít Pea in the Pool and Poolís Closed while going for this trophy.
Complete Pogo Party without using Tall-Nuts or Magnet-shrooms In order to unlock this trophy you must complete Pogo Party without using Tall-nuts or Magnet-shrooms. Pogo Party takes place on the roof and is pretty difficult if you donít use the right plants. I recommend using the following plants: Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Flowerpot, Snowpea, Cabbage-pult, Melon-pult, Squash, and Imitator Squash. Fill up your first 2 columns with Sunflowers (and Twin Sunflowers if you need to). Fill up the 5th column with Snow Peas so that the roof angle doesnít affect the range that they can shoot. Fill up the 3rd and 4th columns with Cabbage-pults and Melon-pults. Use the Squash and Squash Imitator when you are first setting up and also if you have any close encounters. Finish the level using this method and the trophy will unlock. If you use this method you shouldnít have any problems.
Blow up a zombie using a Potato Mine
This is probably one of the easiest trophies in the game. You will be able to unlock this trophy the first time you play Adventure Mode Level 1-6. The Potato Mine cost 25 Sun and take 15 seconds to arm themselves (this is the amount of time that it takes most zombies to walk three tiles). To unlock the trophy simply plant a Potato Mine and wait for a zombie to walk on it. As soon the zombie blows up the trophy will unlock.
