Snowballs are an item that can be used as a projectile or crafted into a block of Snow. In Minecraft, snowballs are obtained by digging Snow and snow covers with a shovel. They are the only item that require a shovel to harvest. Harvesting can be semi-automated with a Snow Golem, who will constantly lay snow covers on blocks it stands on if there wasn't one already.

Trivia[edit]

  • To automate ice production, the snowballs can be fed in from a Glacial Precipitator, and since 1 bucket of water produces 8 snowballs (4 at a time), this is a lot more efficient than using the Glacial Precipitator set to Ice. Note that since snowballs only stack to 16, a regular Compressor will quickly fill up with a backlog of snowballs. To compensate for this, either use Overclocker Upgrades or upgrade to a Singularity Compressor.
