Not to be confused with the Snowball Cannon, a ranged weapon found in Ice Chests, or the Snowball Launcher, which rapidly fires Snowballs.
The Snowman Cannon in use.

The Snowman Cannon is a Hardmode, post-Plantera Launcher. It has a chance to be dropped by the Ice Queen during the Frost Moon event. It's essentially the homing version of the Rocket Launcher, firing Rockets which guide themselves towards targets to explode on contact. The rockets fired are re-skinned miniature snowmen and, unlike most other launchers, the splash damage does not harm the player.

Its best Modifier is Unreal.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • In PvP it can do immense amounts of damage if used with Ranger-accessories and the Shroomite armor (Helmet), dealing around 250 damage per shot only using Rocket III. However, rockets do not home on players.
  • When using against large hordes of enemies, especially The Destroyer and other worms, the Snowman Cannon will deal massive amounts of damage, sometimes more than the Coin Gun with Platinum coins.
  • Like the Stynger, the Snowman Cannon can only deal either direct or splash damage, but not both simultaneously.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite its name and appearance, it is not an upgrade to the Snowball Cannon; therefore, it can't use Snowballs as ammunition.
  • Because of the high damage, speed and homing effects, some people consider it to be even better than the Celebration, dropped by the Moon Lord.
