Ratings - Tartan 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): No matter the price, if the item is useless then it's not a good price, sadly.
Power (0/5): The amount of icons is still below today's standard, and most bombs, this snowball is single use, so it'd only be a waste of neopoints to use it.
Uniqueness (0/2): There's a huge amount of snowballs like this.

Overall it's what you'd expect from a snowball. Sadly these weapons aren't really useful anymore. 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): Just like your average 9-iconer, except single use.

Tactical (0/5): Back in the 6-icon era, a weapon like this would have been considered quite useful. Nowadays, it's way too weak. Mass iconage has some value, though a better alternative is the Pike Pike.

Bonus (1/1): Only because I can't give it a 0.

Closing remarks: Get a Pike Pike or a Scroll of Ultranova. Stay away from the snowballs.

Price/Power (0/5)
10 icons is not much for a bomb at the best of times, but depending on the icons they can be handy if you need that little push. However, when you consider that these are fractional icons rather then full icons this point is pushed away.

Countermeasures (0/5)
While light was once a good icon to have, now it is completely crushed by the cheap Parasol of Unfortunate Demise. Physical is not much better and is easily blocked by common full and partial blockers.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
Try one of the better Snowball items or Battle Muffins for a bit more pushing power and forget this fractional mutant.

Other Points (1 Bonus)
Was given out by the battledome.

Final Thoughts
I wonder how they managed to colour it like that...
