This time even the sweater knitted by your granny won't help you.. The more you know with PG3D: there are no identical cuts made by this razer-sharp snowflake.

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Sharp Snowflake is a Special weapon introduced in the 13.3.0 update.

 Appearance

It resembles a light blue snowflake, with a blue pattern in the middle and 8 arms.

When the player throws the snowflake, the snowflake collides to the target at initial impact to split into 3 snowflake shards that typically split almost evenly in a triangular direction.

Strategy

It has high damage, medium capacity, medium fire-rate, and medium mobility. This weapon is capable of killing players in one shot.

Tips

  • Aim for your enemy's body or near them. Directly hitting an enemy wearing champion armor may kill them in about 1 to 2 hits.
  • Use in medium to close range combat. Do note it has a rather slow travel time, so the closer the better.
  • Use this for small crowd control.
    • On the topic of crowd control, this weapon works superbly in hallways and prediction throwing, as it forces opponents to take either wait or take a different route, if not getting hit by the snowflake first. This also makes for a great way to get someone off back if they are chasing you down such a hallway.
  • If you are trying to use this weapon on a moving target right next to you, you may have to throw it ahead of where the opponent is going. i.e, if they are moving to their right (your left) while you are also moving left, toss the snowflake ahead of them to your left so they can walk into the snowflake
  • Like the Christmas Ultimatum, most of its area damage is horizontal, meaning that you need to use a Singular Grenade to pull foes in or use Sticky Candy.

Counters

  • Kill its users quickly using instant kill weapons, such as Anti-Champion Rifle or Big Buddy (PG3D).
  • Dispatch its users from long ranges.
  • Use a Jetpack and attack from above. Its users will have a much harder time hitting you.
  • This snowflake takes time to travel. If the user is throwing it from afar, it is entirely possible to walk out of the way before the snowflake hits you.
  • If the opponent starts using this down a hallway consistently, find a different or much safer route to take before they start throwing pre-emptive snowflakes again.
