Snow Golem

Snow Golems are Utility Mobs that attack Hostile Mobs by throwing Snowballs at them. They can be created by the player like Iron Golems.


Snow Golems do not spawn naturally. They spawn when the player places two Snow Blocks and a Pumpkin or a Jack o Lantern on the top of each other (the Pumpkin or Jack o Lantern must be placed last). They cannot be crafted as they are mobs.


Snow Golems attack every Hostile Mob that is nearby by shooting Snowballs, which do no damage unless the Mob is a Blaze. This is a smart way to distract Hostile Mobs and kill them yourself.

The Snow Golem's Snowballs can only kill Blazes as they take damage from Snowballs.

Tip: Snow Golems cannot attack Ghasts.


Snow Golems when killed, they drop 8-9 snowballs.


  • Their Pumpkin can be removed with Shears, having a derpy-looking face in MCPE and MCPC.
  • They will melt in hot biomes, such as Desert and the Nether. They will also melt by Lava pools.
  • They can be damaged from bodies of Water and rain.
  • In the right environmental conditions, a player can farm snow from Snow Golems, as they leave a layer of snow on top of every block they walk on.
