The Hail Bomber is a Hardmode summon weapon that is dropped by Snow Ballas, Mister Stabbies, and Snowman Gangstas during the Frost Legion event. It is unique in that the creatures it summons do not function like typical minions; it spawns dynamite-rigged mini snowmen that follow the player when without a target like regular minions, but when attacking enemies explode on them to deal area-of-effect damage and inflict the On Fire! debuff.
The snowmen are not affected by the minion cap, meaning that the wielder can summon as many as they can with mana; however, they are used up when they explode, and if they have not already exploded six seconds after being summoned they will disappear.
