The Snowball is a weapon in the Special category introduced in the 10.2.0 update.

Description

It is a snowball that is used as a projectile. It is an efficient weapon, which deals moderate damage. However, you can only shoot one snowball before reloading. As of the current update, this weapon is a 2 shot kill.

Appearance

It's a simple, white, ordinary pixelated snowball.

Performance

The player throws the snowball from their right hand. The snowball has looping shot and a medium bullet travel time. In Sandbox mode, a person throwing a snowball at another person would input in the chat that the snowball user hit the affected player.

It uses the single-shot system and does not have a reload animation. Moreover, it has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • You can run around easily and fast with its because of its high mobility.
  • It is not recommended to use the Explosive Ammo module combo on this weapon as it does not have a clip despite having a reload animation.
  • If you upgrade this weapon to Mythical, maximize its efficiency and give it modules with a very high level, it will be a 1 shot kill.

Counters

  • Approach your opponent and use a small-ranged weapon such as Primaries and Backups.
  • Keep an eye on your surroundings since you will be caught off guard with its AoE.
  • Area damage weapons can overpower its users.
  • Use a high damage weapon to kill the opponent before they shoot.
