Fortnite’s New Sneaky Snowman Leads to Stealthy Shenanigans

Fortnite's new Sneaky Snowman item allows you to create a frosty shield and move freely around the battlefield incognito.

When you’re the biggest game on the planet, there’s very little that you can’t get away with. Adding balloons to ascend to higher altitudes or allegedly appearing on bizarre consoles created by rap artists is oddly all within the realm of reality for battle royale juggernaut Fortnite. With that in mind; the concept of a Sneaky Snowman doesn’t seem too outlandish.

The most recent update to the constantly changing game brings with it a number of alterations. Among them are weapons and items. And also, the latest star of the game’s Frostnite event, the Sneaky Snowman.

Feeling right at home in the winter themed event, Sneaky Snowman can be used as a chilly disguise in order to get the jump on your opponents. It’s worth noting that the adorable character is tougher than it looks.

Activating the Sneaky Snowman is done via the game’s primary fire button. The secondary fire then allows the player to wear the frosty character and move around the map. While inside, the Sneaky Snowman acts as a shield with 100 health. The downside is that while wearing the chilly item, you cannot build; therefore limiting your options.

The Sneaky Snowman is available in Fornite now. You can currently download the insanely popular free-to-play title on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
