Notes[edit | edit source]

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

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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[edit | edit source]

  • Console Version Despite the Snowball Cannon dealing ranged damage, the Snowballs that it fires deal throwing damage when used on their own.
  • The sprite of the Snowball Cannon seems to be an edited sniper rifle.
