This Page/Section is about an item / mechanic that has been put in The Vault.

This item has been made unavailabe in standard playlists to balance the loot pool. It may return in the future.

The Sneaky Snowman / Sneaky Snowmando are Throwable Items in Fortnite: Battle Royale. They were introduced in Season 7, and Chapter 2: Season 5.


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).

When a Sneaky Snowman is destroyed, a snowball will appear. It can be picked up and thrown or shot at to deal explosive damage in a small radius.

When destroyed, a Sneaky Snowmando will knock the player back and apply Icy Feet.


The Sneaky Snowman and Sneaky Snowmando will be destroyed after taking 100 and 50 damage respectively. When used up, Sneaky Snowmen will recharge slowly to the max stack of 5.
