Snowball is a semi-lethal weapon which was added in Version 184. A small snowball can be thrown at other players, stunning them so that they cannot interact with items for 10 seconds. A single snowball will not necessarily kill a player, but if a player is hit by enough snowballs in quick succession, they will die with the Cause of Death: "Killed by Snowball".
Use empty hands on a Snow Bank to get a Snowball. Then use the snowball on the snowbank again to increase its size to medium, big then huge. Note: After 1 minute, a snowball will decrease in size then melt and after 30 seconds disappear.
Add a Big Snowball to a Huge Snowball, then add a Medium Snowball to start a Snowman.
