Ratings - Failed Snowball
This weapon will only be rated for Regular 1P/2P use, since it doesn't have any niche or league use.

Price (0/3): more expensive than other snowballs that are stronger and have better icons than this, and snowballs aren't good in the first place!
Power (0/5): A 6 iconer multiuse weapon is already bad. A single use one is a waste of neopoints that clogs up your slots.
Uniqueness (0/2): Snowballs are usually bad. Nothing special here.

Overall just use muffins if you want a half decent starter single use weapon. This is not worth it. Because of that its final rating is 0/10. I can't give a rating of 0 however, so it gets a shameful 1 instead.

Price/Power (0/5)
A single use 6 icon weapon with no auxiliary powers such as freezing is never worth using.

Countermeasures (0/5)
6 icons single use is nothing to fear. So why block?

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Pike Pike or Rainbow Scroll for this icon type.

Other Points (2 Bonus)
I am giving this a bonus point purely on the fact that it is one of the first horrible items I have seen which has not lied on the tin by acting like it is anything other then a massive FAIL.

Final Thoughts
It looks like a melted marshmallow.

Price/power (0/5): Single use, 6 icons, nothing to see here...

Tactical (1/5): Not a bad combination of icons, but there aren't enough and this is SINGLE USE. Not to mention that 9-iconers can be insanely cheap these days (e.g. Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer).

Bonus (0/1): Failed snowballs never work, hence the name.

Closing remarks: Seriously, any weapon is better than this. Aside from that hammer, stuff like Scroll of Knowledge can also be worthwhile.
