A snowball is an item that can be obtained by shoveling snow from either dead snow golems, or by destroying snow blocks. Snowballs can be placed in stacks of 16. They're a throwable item that do not harm mobs, except for 3 HP per snowball to blazes.They can also be crafted into snow blocks, which then can be crafted into snow covers.

Usage

The snowball is especially useful against Blazes, as the snowball can knock a blaze out with seven hits. They are also useful to knock any mob off cliffs or into a trap, as well as players, as snowballs have a knockback equivalent to Knockback I on a sword.

Use in PvP

Snowballs have a dual use in PvP combat situations: They can be used to keep enemies at many meters length, and can quickly break or wear down armor, unless it is enchanted with Unbreaking.

Trivia

  • Like arrows, chicken eggs, fire charges and spawn eggs, snowballs can be fired from Dispensers.
  • Snowballs are the projectile of a snow golem, offering no effect except for knockback. Again, Blazes are the exception.
  • Snowballs burn when thrown through lava, but are not destroyed.
  • There is a glitch where, sometimes, Snowballs can pass through solid blocks.
