Someone Setup the Pumpkin Bomb is the fourth of the five-part Lawn of the Dead quest chain quest chain, where players will get to play an "in-game" game based on the online game "Plants vs. Zombies". The final quest rewards a Singing Sunflower non-combat pet.
Survive 2 Massive Waves of Zombies.
You ever seen one of these?

This ain't no ordinary pumpkin, friend. See once you plant it, they'll lay in wait until a zombie shows up and then KABLOOEY! Zombie guts all over the place. Let's go!
D... Do you hear that rumblin'? I think Stillwater is comin'! HOLY MOLY LOOK OUT!
Scales with level. Max-level yields 13 23 while below max-level yields both cash and XP.
You can now plant Pumpkin Bomb seeds which require 40% solar power, making them an extremely reserved ability. Once planted, these pumpkin bombs will only activate once an undead has engaged it in battle. Once it activates, it will destroy or severely damage every undead around it. Just like any other bomb, it will also destroy itself in the process. The best strategy is to set the pumpkin bomb in the middle of an active group of undead, (preferably while they are attempting to tear down a wall of rocknuts) rather than waiting for them to come and activate the bomb. At least this way you'll get more bang for your buck.
Ideally at this stage, you want to try to have 10 sunflowers planted before the first wave hits, so you will have enough power to survive. More is always better, but you also have to consider enough room for your defense/offense as well. After the first Massive Wave of Zombies begins, the only solar power you will gain will be that which your sunflowers create. So if your sunflowers die after that and you have no power to plant anymore, it's game over.
