Snowball Mayhem

Snowball Mayhem is a capture the flag style activity introduced in the Wintersday: The Wondrous Workshop of Toymaker Tixx update. The game revolves around gathering presents and bringing them back to a home base. Players must choose between 3 combat professions: Supporter, Scout, and Heavy Gunner.

Getting There

Objective

The objective of Snowball Mayhem is to be the first team to 500 points. Points are scored by retrieving Wintersday gifts and returning them to your base. Bonus points are scored by defeating other players with unique snowball fight skills.

Power-ups

Power-ups are scattered around the map and can be used to gain additional buffs.

  • Damage Boost: All of your attacks deal extra damage.
  • Speed Boost: Your movement speed is increased.
  • Piercing Shots: Your snowballs travel through targets, allowing you to hit multiple foes.
  • Skill Recharge: Your weapon skills recharge faster.
  • Health Regeneration: Your health is restored over time.

Skills

Your weapon skills are determined by your choice of combat profession. You also have an additional utility skill that is based on your character’s open-world profession.
