The Snowball Cannon firing.

The Snowball Cannon is a ranged weapon which uses Snowballs as ammunition. It can be found inside Frozen Chests in the Ice biome, as well as Frozen and Boreal Crates.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

Notes[]

  • Snowballs make a small "boom" when landing.
  • Its damage is higher than stated due to snowballs having a base damage of 8

Tips[]

  • Snowballs fired from the Snowball Cannon are greatly affected by gravity, so it is not recommended to be used against enemies at farther ranges.
  • This weapon is extremely useful in the very early game due to its autofire ability, accessible ammo, and high combined damage and knockback of weapon and ammo.

Trivia[]

  • Despite the Snowball Cannon dealing ranged damage, the Snowballs that it fires deal throwing damage when used on their own.

    • Damage increased from 4 to 10.
