The Sneaky Snowman (also known as The Sneaky Snowmando) is a Throwable Item in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Season 7.


The Sneaky Snowman is thrown at a location to produce a snowman. This snowman can be interacted with in a few ways. The player can enter the snowman, being able to move, sprint, build and jump whilst wearing it. It can be exited by holding the interact button, which will cause the player to jump out (and can negate fall damage this way). The Sneaky Snowman can also be thrown onto a player to produce this effect.

Destroying a Sneaky Snowman causes the player to have Frozen Feet and be knocked back, if they destroy it at close range. Else is has no effect.


The Sneaky Snowman is found as Floor Loot, in Chests or as a naturally spawning item during winter events. This naturally spawned snowman will act the same as a placed snowman. It spawns in stacks of 5, and will regenerate automatically.


The Sneaky Snowman is destroyed after taking 100 damage.
