Snow Golem in Minecraft

To build a Snow Golem in Minecraft, you will need 2 Snow Blocks and a Pumpkin. Start by placing a Snow Block on the ground. Then place the second one on top of the other to form an “I” structure. Then place the pumpkin on top and you’re Snow Golem is ready.

You can use a Carved Pumpkin or Jack o’Lantern in place of a regular pumpkin. For the snow blocks, you can use a shovel to collect snowballs from a snowy biome. A single block requires four snowballs so you will need eight in total.

How to Use Snow Golems

The best use of Snow Golems in Minecraft is as a distraction. This Golem will attack every hostile mob with snowballs. The snowballs do not inflict any damage, except on Blazes, but they knock the mob backward. Moreover, the Golem will catch the attention of the hostile mob. So while the mobs are busy attacking the Golem, you can finish them off. You can also build an army of Snow Golems to gain an advantage in a fight.

Note that these Golems cannot survive in hot biomes like the Desert, Savanna, Jungle, and Mesa biomes. Moreover, they also take damage from rain or water blocks.
