Looking at some other details that have been revealed in the stats, it was revealed that the number 1 plant class was the Peashooter, with the zombies preferring Foot Soldier as their warrior of choice. In weaponry while the plants used their Heal Beam to great effect (used 4.9 billion times), the zombies made use of the ZPG 810 million times.
