Access to Boss Mode
In order to use this class, you must pay 75.000 coins. If the players gets KO'ed it returns to the character selection screen and the team can't use this class for 1 minute. After the minute has passed, they will have to pay 75.000 again to access Boss Mode.
Crazy Dave (Boss Mode) is a unique class for plants. It works very differently from the other classes as it is not an actual character that does combat or support up front in the battlefield, but rather, it is a flying vehicle up in the air. The point of view is also very different, as every plant and zombie present on the field can be seen through a birds-eye view of the map. Crazy Dave's RV can deploy multiple things, listed below. Crazy Dave (Boss Mode) also has the highest health in the game among the normal playable classes; with a total of 2,000 health. To gather up the resources to do actions, the player must gather sun. The sun fall from the screen at determined intervals and must be picked up with a cursor, or, if playing with the Wii U Gamepad, must be picked up by tapping on them Due to the power of the class, only one player can be Boss Mode in a team, and a sort of entrance fee is needed.
When damaged, the Boss mode aircraft will (if unhurt for some time) begin to regenerate health at a rate of 20 health every second until all health is restored.
It is recommended to use the Wii U Gamepad (ZeroCube version) or simply the mouse (PC version).
The Striking Gatling is a rapid-fire but weak gun. Every hit does 2 damage. It has unlimited ammo, and doesn't need to reload, but after exactly 30 seconds of unstopped shooting the weapon overheats, similarly to All-Star. Press D-Pad Up and this will become your primary weapon.
The Precision Shot is a long-range attack with advanced scoping that does around 10 damage and is similar to Cactus' Spike Shot. It has 10 ammo and takes 40 seconds to reload. Press D-Pad Down and this will become your primary weapon.
The Rocket Cannon is a powerful single-hit weapon that fires a big rocket that does 250 damage and 75 splash damage from all directions. It is very similar to Soldier's ZPG. It can fire a single rocket and can't reload, so use it wisely. It can be activated by pressing Ability X's button.
Super Pea Cannon
The Super Pea Cannon is a weapon similar to Peashooter's Pea Cannon. It shoots a Pea that does around 10 damage and 4 splash damage. It has 5 ammo and takes 50 seconds to recharge. Press D-Pad Left and this will become your primary weapon.
