The Snowball Launcher is a special type of ranged weapon which can only be fired while placed on the ground. It uses Snowballs as ammo.

After it has been placed, it can only be fired in one direction until it is picked up and placed again.

It's best to use it as crowd control against large waves of enemies (Such as Goblin Armies or during a Blood Moon).

It is, however, not recommended to use during hardmode due to it's relatively low damage against hardmode enemies.
