A player attacking a Unicorn and Skeletons with the Cool Whip and its generated projectile. Note how only one snowflake can spawn, no matter how many hits, and how said snowflake homes in on enemies.

The Cool Whip is a Hardmode whip. Like other whips, it causes minions and sentries to focus on the last-struck enemy and increases their damage against the target by 6.

If the Cool Whip hits multiple targets in a single attack, the damage dealt by each consecutive hit will be reduced by 30%.

Upon striking an enemy, the Cool Whip inflicts the Frostbite debuff for 4 seconds and creates a temporary snowflake projectile that chases nearby enemies for 3 seconds, dealing 15 damage upon contact. The summoned snowflake has 30 armor penetration and is not affected by damage bonuses outside of banners. If a snowflake is already summoned, attacking with the whip will reset its timer instead of creating a new one.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

  • Tagging an enemy with a different whip will not cause the snowflake to disappear. This allows it to be used as a support weapon for crowd control.
    • Although the snowflake does not disappear, it will remain stationary at the position of the last killed enemy. It will not move until another enemy gets into its range.


  • The item and its tooltip are a reference to the brand of imitation whipped cream of the same name.
  • The tooltip is also a reference to "Barely Legal", the eighth episode of the fifth season of the American animated sitcom Family Guy, in which Stewie asks Brian for some Cool Whip using a strange pronunciation.
  • The name of the snowflake minion's buff is a pun on the words nice and ice.
  • With perfect timing, it is possible to summon a snowflake at the same time the previous one is about to despawn. This way players can have multiple snowflake summons.
