Cons:

Has a small radius.

Vs Other Weapons

Snowball Launcher vs Vacuum Tube

 

Vacuum Tube Launcher is one of the Vacuum Tube Weapons, what same as the Snowball Launcher is that it does not consume ammo, but consumes its durability fastly.

 

The Vacuum Tube features a smaller blast size compared to other launchers but fires three shots which can make the total area bigger. This can be truly my favorite of all the launchers so far just because of how it works as well as the fact it stuns and yours causes affliction. Great weapon to utilize considering the fact that you could spam it in a huge area to stun and lead to affliction on substantial groups of enemies.

 

All that mentioned, I really feel that the Snowball Launcher is still the top explosive weapon inside the game. It doesn't possess the greatest harm and features a smaller radius nevertheless it does stuff that none in the others can come close to. All enemies hit by it are snared producing followup shots a lot much easier to land (plus they deal a lot more damage now) producing excellent against a single enemy or quite a few. It's also the only explosive weapon to not use 1 durability per shot. Every single shot takes 0.358 durabilities which means you get 84 shots per craft producing it possesses the most harm per craft of all explosives.

 

 

Snowball Launcher vs Egg Launcher

 

The large difference between the two. Snowball may be the overall much better launcher. Snowball has a far more forgiving flight trajectory and is much easier to hit targets at a longer variety. The snowball explodes on effect which indicates you're far more than most likely going to hit a target.

 

Egg Launcher has a heavier flight trajectory which suggests your eggs will not fly as far. The key difference even though is that the eggs stick and really need to be walked on to explode. You are able to shoot enemies with it for the explosion but it really is not reputable that you are going to be hitting in the variety.

 

Should you shoot at an enemy along with the projectile lands straight subsequent to an enemy, the snowball will explode and hit all enemies around it. Egg launcher will stick there and probably be wasted unless an enemy later walks over it. Also, Snowball Launcher has twice the explosion radius size.

 

With regards to perks, each are very good, but I prefer the single element around the snowball launcher along with the snare combo too.

 

I'm using Demo Penny and Snowball Launcher is my principal weapon due to how quite a few shots it gets plus the very good clearing power behind it.
