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.


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


  • 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.


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