BO3 Zombies Zetsubou No Shima: Plants Harvest Guide

You eat what you reap.

While venturing through the barrage of zombies in Zetsubou No Shima, many players will come across a blue powerup dropped from zombies that they tend to ignore. These powerups are seeds that can reap players a variety of items to tackle the monstrosities on the map and eventually complete the Zetsubou No Shima Easter Egg in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

To learn more about these seeds and how to use them to harvest rewards, read our guide below.

How to harvest plants in Zetsubou No Shima

While playing the map, many players will come across circular mud platforms around each area. These mud platforms are used to plant the seeds dropped by zombies. To get the rewards players must take care of them by providing them with water each round.

Before we further go ahead with this guide, you must know that there is only one type of seed in the game and the method for harvesting stays the same. The only thing to consider while planting seeds is the water that you choose and staying consistent with the plantation.

To harvest a plant, simply plant the seed in the mud then pour water over it by using the water bucket which is also used to turn on the power in Zetsubou No Shima. The water buckets can be found in multiple locations such as the spawn area, Lab A, and Lab B.

Once you’ve poured the water on the seed, complete the round and pour the water over it again. You must do it for three consecutive rounds to reap the newly created plant and attain the reward.

After unlocking the Pack-A-Punch machine you’ll find that there are multiple colored waters present on the map which can help harvest different types of plants that ultimately reap different rewards.

Plants types in Zetsubou No Shima

There are a bunch of different combinations that can be done with the water to craft a plant that grants different perks and abilities. We’ve mentioned them down below.

No-Water Plant (Basic plant)

The no-water plant is the most basic plant that can be harvested after completion of three rounds. As the name implies, supplying no water to the plant will grant you the most basic guns or pop out another zombie for you to kill in BO3 zombies.

Green Water Plant (Tentacle Plant)

If we supply a seed with green water found outside of Lab B once each round for three rounds consecutively it’ll spawn a green tentacle. The green tentacle will attack one of the zombies and turn it into the crawler. This doesn’t end there; the tentacle will then grab the crawler zombie and hold it off for a whole minute giving you or your teammates a small break from all the action.

DIY: shooting with the KT-4 after watering the plant each time will fertilize it and make the tentacle even stronger. The tentacle will be able to hold the zombie for a whole hour. 

Blue Water plant (Item Plant)

Supplying a seed with blue water located at the pound in the spider’s lair for three rounds consecutively will reap players mid-tier items or 500 points such as the Shadows of Evil purple harvest pods did in Black Ops 3 zombies.

Shooting the blue water plant with the KT-4 wonder weapon after watering it will result in the plant being fertilized giving a higher chance of getting a better tier item or an imprint plant.


The imprint plant is one of the most OP plants in all of Zetsubou No Shima. In such cases where you die or need to be revived, you’ll respawn inside of the imprint plant while keeping all of your guns and perks intact. However, the effect will only last if you have one Imprint plant active.

Purple Water Plant (Attraction plant)

After performing the same operation with purple water, the seed will harvest players an attraction plant. The attraction plant functions by attacking zombies and even distracting them for a while giving players enough time to regroup and get back into the fight. The purple water can be acquired by heading inside the main bunker and going into the corner left room in front of the Pack-A-Punch machine.

Fertilizing the purple water plant will make the attacks even stronger and will last a longer time than usual. Do note that coming in front of the attacking plant will cause you to get damaged as well.

Fruit Plant (Perk-A-Cola Plant)

If players decide to supply a seed with all three colored water or simply the iridescent water each round, the result will be a newly created plant called the fruit plant. The fruit plant will provide players with a fruit that they can use to give them a free perk.

There is also a chance that players might get nothing so, it’s a 50/50 bet. if you decide to fertilize it using the KT-4, the chances of getting the perk increase or it could turn into an imprint plant.


Instead of collecting the different colored water, again and again, use the Golden bucket to store an indefinite quantity of all three watercolors.

Combination Plants

With all of the major plants out of the way, many players have also tried different combinations with the water that reaps them much better rewards than usual.

Such as in many cases providing a seed with 2x blue water and 1x purple water will harvest players a ray gun but do note that these combinations vary and the chances of getting better rewards are entirely up to your luck in the map of Zetsubou No Shima in BO3 zombies.
