Plants vs. Zombies 2: Big Wave Beach Part 2 Quick Walkthrough and Strategy Guide


Here's the 2nd part of the quick walkthrough and strategy guide for the "Big Wave Beach" stages in the action and arcade defense game - Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time! Take a trip back to the 60's and hang ten on the ocean waves! Tides are changing and those gnarly zombies make it not-so-safe to back in the water!

   - Play Big Wave Beach Quick Walkthrough and Strategy Guide first before this guide!

Lily Pads
   - Always place Lily Pads beyond the tide line before or after placing your plants to protect them from waves. All Green colored plants below are placed on top of Lily Pads.
   - Use Shovel and sell unused Lily Pads.

Guacodile
   - Can be planted on water tiles.
   - Place it on a Lily Pad or ground to attack zombies with seeds. When attacked, they will rush off the lawn biting all zombies they encounter (plant is lost after rushing).

Banana Launchers
   - Tap+ Hold then drag to your target.

Homing Thistle
   - Not free, but can be played on certain stages.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS!
   - Snapdragons: After placing 2 Sunflowers, place the first 2 Snapdragons on the 2nd and 4th row first, next on 3rd, then 1st and 5th rows last. If the formation below requires 2 columns of Snapdragons, start by placing 4 of them on the the 2nd and 4th row, and so on.
   - Note: Use Wall-Nuts or Tall-Nuts if needed to defend your Snapdragons.

   - You can instantly repair defensive plants like Wall-Nuts and Talls-Nuts by planting the same plant on top of them.
   - You can use Plant Food on any seed packet to instantly refresh their cool down.
   - You can manually launch one mower by tapping and holding!
   - After you complete the formation below, slowly replace your Sun producing plants with offensive plants.
   - If you are having difficulty, you may use Power Ups or buy PFs if you like.

How to Plant Guide:
   - | Sunflower | Peashooter | Peashooter | Wall |
   - This means: Plant Sunflowers in the 1st column from the left, Peashooters in the 2nd and 3rd columns, then Wall-Nuts in the 4th column.
