Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare strays away from the traditional Plants Vs. Zombies formula and transforms it into a third person shooter COD style game. In the end it’s a surprisingly original refreshing take on the shooter genre that will keep you addicted for plenty of hours. If you aren’t into the 3rd person shooters then you can check out Garden Ops, similar to the original game you defend your Garden from waves of Zombies. With 4 difficulties of Garden Ops and plenty of MP modes you'll be busy for quite awhile.
Step 1: Multiplayer
I recommend playing Multiplayer first so you can get a feel for the game and can start to rack up coins and start being able to buy packs so you can unlock weapon upgrades, abilities and most importantly Skip Challenge stars. I recommend sticking to the 20,000 and 30,000 packs as they give you a combination of skip challenges, weapon upgrades etc. I recommend trying to gather around 50 skip challenge stars, that way you can skip the challenges of the characters you don't like playing as and any hard challenges that you will more than likely encounter.
Step 2: Garden Ops
Now that you have a feel for the controls and have some upgrades you can move onto Garden Ops. You should start off playing on easy so you get used to the mode and then move onto Crazy when you feel ready.
Step 3: Clean Up
Now is the time to clear up any remaining trophies that you may have including the character specific trophies and get 25 wins in Gardens and Graveyards and Team Vanquish. After you've unlocked your final trophy you will have your shiny new Platinum Trophy. Congratulations!
Skip Challenge Stars: Skip Challenge Stars are your best friend in this game and should be saved for the later levels, 4+ and more for when you are really close to rank 50 and want to get there faster. You get skip challenge stars most frequently from the 20,000 and 30,000 packs but they can also be gotten from the 10,000 or even 5,000 they are just much rarer. Unfortunately it is random when you get the packs so you just have to keep buying them. Now you can actually buy packs of coins in the following denominations: 13,500 coins for .99 USD, 30,000 coins for 1.99 USD, 85,000 coins for 4.99 USD and 200,000 coins for 9.99 USD. You should only use your skip challenge stars either when you are having really trouble completing a challenge or if you really don't like playing as a certain character. I used approximately 50 skip challenges to get my Platinum so I recommend trying to get at least that many but more is always better.
Boosting: It is also possible to boost a number of the trophies in the game by heading to a secluded corner and killing one another etc. so if you need or want a boosting partner, then head here: LINK
