The Snowstorm Staff is a Hardmode wand that is dropped by Cryogen. When used, it spawns a large flying snowflake that is controlled with the cursor, staying close to it in a similar manner to the Flying Knife. The snowflake can pass through tiles and pierce infinity but will disappear after 4.67 seconds. Snowflakes spawn homing stars on collision that have a 4 second cooldown for each snowflake fired.

Its best modifier is Mythical.
