Anyone who is not buying one of these because it wont function later.
You realize that having one of these 'guns' improves your participation in the snowball fights every half hour. The better you do in those fights, the better drops you get after Big Bad goes down. The 'guns' pay for themselves in like 2 snowball fights max.

It is foolish NOT to buy one, as the improved drops mean that you get to the other stuff you want faster.

Just my observation.

Nope.

I actually don't like these weapons. The first time participated in taking on that huge king snowman no-one had these weapons and thousands of snowballs were flying all over the place, it was mayhem and pretty good fun.

And now nothing happens at all, the same fight is finished in a fraction of the time with a handful of players because they have these guns. Shame really.

But by all means have it as a 'social' weapon like the Party Poppers though.

This, a million times, THIS!

Before I got the weapon I would average maybe 5 things in that drop after the boss, since I started using the avalanche I'd say i average 8 to 9 items. Just been my experience.

It's not a huge difference, but a very tangible one.

I think there is some calculation done by damage and time were if you AFK and only fight the boss I dont think you get much, I know I was minimized and joined around the end and only got 3 Vulcan things.

Then I switched instance and fought as I normally do and I was rewarded as I normally am, I dont think there is much difference of Snowball/Weapon except Weapons does makes it go faster, rewards seem to be better perhaps because there is a calculation so with a weapon you do better.

I advice the weapon because its simply better, does not take a Device slot and does more damage (well the Avalanche certainly does) as the free snowballs melt, are currently bugged and the way they have to work is not as natural as its with a weapon.

I'd just call it math
Easy way to look at it is this.

End of Snowball Fight reward :
Figure an Average of 5 items without the gun
do the fight 5 times

25 of the items


Average of say 8 (low end) with the snow gun
do the fight 5 times

40 of the collectible items.

That divide keeps getting bigger the more you do the snowball fight.
yeah , not a huge difference, but Math tells me it's a pretty important one if i want to get all the items I want to get.

I'd heard you can use avalanche to assassinate the snowman army in the NW sector. hide in the mountain just out of range and waste them in a single shot!

Never tried it but I heard it can be done.
