Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2: Complete Class Unlock Guide

We cover the best ways to unlock classes and a full list of all known characters and variants in Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.


Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 offers a wide array of plants and zombies to choose from, with variants on each one.  This guide will walk you through all the details you need to know to unlock the characters and variants that you're looking to play.

How to Earn Characters

You have a few methods of earning characters, depending on how much you need consumable items to use in battle. All of these are purchasable using in-game currency in the vending machine, which is located next to the hall of heroes for both Plants and Zombies.

If you aren't concerned about gaining consumables, the most fool-proof and cost-efficient way to earn characters is the Phenomenal Character Pack for 75,000 coins. This pack contains no consumables at all, but guarantees a Rare or Super Rare character unlock.

If you want a cheaper option that gets you consumables and will also eventually pay off with a character, get either the Fertilizer Fun Pack or the Amazing Brainz Pack for 35,000 coins. Those offer lots of consumable items, and a high likelihood (but not a guarantee) of a character piece. You could also get the Wondrous Pack of Greatness for 35,000, which has the best likelihood of a Super Rare character piece.

As the names imply, the Fertilizer Fun and Amazing Brainz packs are split between the Plant and Zombie factions, so if you're fishing for a missing piece in one faction or the other, this may be the way to go. However, since it only offers one character piece, it would take five of them (totalling 175,000 coins) to get the same amount of character value as one Phenomenal Character Pack. That means the consumables and customization items would need to be worth 100,000 coins, and the cheaper options are generally better for those.

You can also sample characters for a limited time through the Hero Showcase.
