The stagecoach of destruction from the western wilds.

Ranchers and farmhands, abandon your fields. Rumbling down the dusty trail, this wagon was engineered to strike fear into the heart of any horticulturist who should encounter it. Dr. Zomboss normally doesn't take any bull, but this time he made an exception.

The Zombot War Wagon is one of the robots created by Dr. Zomboss in the second game of Plants vs. Zombies. It appeared as a boss in Wild West - Day 25, Wild West - Day 35, Modern Day - Day 32, and Arena. Like all other Zombots, it was used by him to defeat the plants and eat the players' brains once and for all.

History

The Zombot War Wagon was first introduced in Wild West - Day 25 as a boss. After Dr. Zomboss sent it on the battlefield, the players had to use Wild West plants (Split Peas, Chili Beans, Pea Pods, Lightning Reeds, Melon-pult, Tall-nuts, and Winter Melons) to fight him. When the Zombot was defeated, its legs were destroyed, Zomboss warped into a portal and teleported away, the players earned a Wild West trophy (a money bag when replayed).

Zombot War Wagon also returned in Wild West - Day 35 as an extra boss. Dr. Zomboss upgraded this Zombot by summoning more powerful zombies and in phase 2, the Rodeo Legend Zombie entering the lawn during the battle. The players had to use Wall-nuts, Iceberg Lettuces, Spikeweeds, Hypno-shrooms, and Electric Currant to fight him. After Zomboss was defeated and teleported away, the players earned a money bag as a reward.

In Modern Day - Day 32, when the game picked Wild West boss fight, the players, alongside Far Future plants (Laser Beans, Citrons, and Infi-nuts), had to fight the Zombot War Wagon. Dr. Zomboss summoned all zombies from Wild West - Day 35 to attack them. After he was defeated, the Players earned a Modern Day Piñata (formerly a mystery gift box), and a money bag when replayed.

In Arena, Zombot War Wagon appeared as a boss in Blastberry Vine's tournament with infinite health. After it was defeated in each phase, the Players earned 10000 points.
