The Dawning is a wonderful celebration of light that happens within Destiny 2 to close out the year. While players are running around the Tower, perhaps delivering tasty seasonal treats to the various NPC’s, they may notice that there are piles of snow scattered about that can be interacted with. Here is what snowballs do in Destiny 2 Dawning 2021.
Players that interact with these piles, will pick up a snowball. This snowball can be thrown by pressing the button you use to fire your weapon. So naturally, you will see groups of guardians getting into the Dawning spirit by partaking in snowball fights all over the tower.

However, these snowballs actually do a little more than they originally let on. Snowballs actually give Guardians debuffs. If you are hit with a snowball, you will receive the Chilled to the Bone debuff, which causes you to not be able to sprint while the effect is active. Throwing snowballs will also give you a debuff called Frostbite, which makes it so you cannot pick up another snowball for a short period of time.
So there you have it, that is what snowballs do in Destiny 2 Dawning 2021. While they don’t serve any real gameplay purpose, it is a fun seasonal addition to the tower that can help put even the grumpiest of Guardians in a holiday mood.
