☃️ Snowbrawl

Snowbrawl allows students to interact with other players using our projectiles game mechanic. In plain English, students can throw snowballs at each other! This exciting, fast-paced mode has a small map and just one goal: Knock out as many players as you can.

Snowbrawl Gameplay

Tips & Tricks



Use the WASD keys on your keyboard to move around. That way, you can use your right hand for the mouse/trackpad, which may make aiming and throwing snowballs easier.

Use "1" and "2" on your keyboard to quickly toggle between regular gameplay and throwing snowballs.

You can hold up-to 4 Shield Cans, each can grants 25 shield, up-to 50 shield.

You can hold up-to 2 Med Packs, each one heals you up-to 100 health.

You have to be standing still to use the Med Pack. If you start moving, it stops applying. It's a risk to stay still in the middle of a snowball fight, but the reward is health.
