"Used as innocent fun, now used as lethal weapons!"


The Snowball is a ball made from snow that can be thrown to hurt zombies. In Snowball Fight, you spawn with this and it can hurt other players.

If you happen to have at least one snowball in your inventory, you can continue to stock up or even subscribe to them even if the event is over. This did not apply between the Christmas 2018 and Christmas 2019 events.

Background Story

It all started when a survivor got hit in the face by a Snowball. Then they threw one back at their assailant. Then someone else threw one. Then someone else.

...and it spiralled into an all out Snowball Fight.

Don't worry, they just pretend to play dead for fun. Just kidding, they actually die... somehow.



  • This a returning item from R2D 2014.
  • This is technically not an event item but a seasonal item as it is not sold for Tickets.
    • However, it was only sold during the Christmas 2016, 2017 2018 and  2019s event.
      • Between the 2018 Event and 2019 Event and after the 2019 Event, you cannot subscribe to the Snowballs. Before these periods, you could subscribe to Snowballs even during the inter-periods with no events.
  • The current Winscreen has a small bug where it allows you to stock up on Snowballs in it. 
  • This is the cheapest item that you could purchase in store.
    • This ties with the Lifevest for the cheapest item overall.
