Price/power (0/5): Very expensive and worse than the Randomly Firing Freeze Ray.

Tactical (0/5): You're better off getting a more reliable freezer. 20% isn't nearly enough when your budget clearly isn't tiny.

Bonus (1/1): Because I can't give this a 0.

Closing remarks: Get the aforementioned Randomly Firing Freeze Ray or simply a 100% freezer such as the H4000 Helmet.

Price/Power (0/5)
Upwards of 4.3 icons of attack combined with a high price tag means that this item most likely wouldn't be worth using even if multiuse.

Countermeasures (0/5)
This is its own counter, use a better weapon instead

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
If you want a low freeze chance with an attack attached, you need a Slumberberry Potion, which can do it more then once. Otherwise get a Randomly Firing Freeze Ray or a full freezer like a H4000 Helmet.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
When freezing was hard to pull off and icons had not inflated, maybe then this item would have been good... but now? No.

Low chance of freeze. Weak attack. Not good.

I don't recommend freezers that don't have a 100% chance of freezing. (Exception: Multi-freezers) Fumbling around with this weapon is a waste of time; the time spent trying to pull off a freeze could have been spent using a stronger offensive weapon. A "free shot" won't make up for the fact that this weapon will fail to freeze four times out of five.

This weapon commands a fairly high price thanks to being R99. Money spent on this weapon could be better spent elsewhere on offense, defense, or healing.

Understandably, 100% freezers that don't break like Scroll of Freezing are expensive, but for those on a budget are better off skipping a freezer altogether. In 2-Player, using a chance freezer is a deadly gamble that will result in a lot of losses. (Stick to No Freeze battles.) In 1-Player, a freezer may be essential to getting past a tough opponent like one for the Defenders of Neopia missions, but if that is so, stick to using one the cheaper chance-freezers on the Shop Wizard.
