|“||Snowballs became a part of Minecraft in alpha version 1.0.5, the same update that added snow blocks. They can be collected by hitting snow blocks or snow layers with a shovel, or by destroying snow golems. Snow far, snow good.||„|
|— Duncan Geere|
Snowballs are throwable items.
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 drop 0–15 snowballs upon death.
Snowballs can be thrown by using them, similar to an egg. They are affected by gravity.
Snowballs can be fired from dispensers.
