We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Snowballs can be obtained by breaking snow blocks (4 snowballs) when using a shovel without silk touch and by breaking snow layers using a shovel (1-8 snowballs, one per layer).
Snow Golems[edit | edit source]

Usage[edit | edit source]
Crafting ingredient[edit | edit source]
Combat[edit | edit source]
Snowballs can be thrown by using them. They are affected by gravity.
They deal 3 () to blazes but they deal no damage to other mobs or players, although both will still have knockback and give the same effect as if they were being damaged. In both versions, they can still damage armor.
Dispenser[edit | edit source]
Snowballs can be fired from dispensers.
