The '''Potato''' is a starchy tuberous crop from the plant ''Solarum tuberosum'' of the Solanaceae, or Nightshade family. It is the worlds fourth most popular crop--following rice, wheat and maize (corn). It is originally believed to have evolved in an area of southern Peru, spreading and diversifying into thousands of varieties, up to a 100 sometimes growing in a single valley. Used for thousands of years by native peoples, the Potato was first found by Spanish explorers in the 1500's. It was later exported to Europe, the Americas and throughout the world. It became especially popular in areas where the soil was not rich enough for more traditional crops, such as Russia and Ireland. Today, however, Asia leads the market in potato production, with China the worlds leading exporter of Potatoes, followed by India. Products such as Potato Chips, French Fries and mashed potatoes. When fermented, Potatoes can be made into vodka.

Potatoes are used in Red Army Training, the opening level of Call of Duty 2.

Being nothing more than a normal potato, it does not cause any damage, nor explode like more conventional ordinance. If thrown at another character, it will harmlessly bounce off.
