Sneaky Snowman Item Features & Traits
Blend In to the Winter Island
The Sneaky Snowman functions in the same way as the Legendary Bush! It provides players with a camouflage that can be used to blend in to the environment with the added bonus of being able to create additional snowmen.
Use Primary Fire to Create Snowmen
The Snowman is thrown as a projectile and will create a Snowman where it lands! You can place it anywhere as long as it's not in between structures or objects.
Use Secondary Fire to Wear Snowman
Keep your hold on the secondary fire to put on this adorable Snowman. Putting on the disguise takes a few seconds so make sure to do it in cover!
Snowman Acts as a Shield with 100 Health
Putting on the Snowman will act as a shield, protecting you from any enemy fire damage. It has a health of 100, a full shield and will be destroyed once the health has been depleted.
Cannot Build or Fire when in Disguise
Wearing the disguise will render you unable to build structures or fire weapons! Once you switch to another weapon or building option, the Snowman will be destroyed.
Movement is Allowed
You can run, jump, and crouch when wearing the Snowman! It's only when you switch items that it gets destroyed.
Tips on Using the Sneaky Snowman
Put Down Multiple Snowmen First
Before putting on the disguise, it's best to place a few Snowmen around you first to act as decoys for any enemies. You can put on the disguise once you've had one or two Snowmen placed.
Best with Suppressed Weapons
With suppressed weapons, you can shoot at enemies without as much risk of exposing your position to them! Shoot enemies then put on the disguise once they've been alerted.
