Main article: Snowman (traditional)

Players could make snowmen themselves by building them out of snow (which creates an unfinished snowman) and then adding one of a choice of hats or and a weapon if the player is in the Land of Snow and wants to let their snowman fight. The hat (or the weapon) determines which type of snowman is made. (The snowmen from the 2010 Christmas event didn't require a hat to be added, they would come alive when the last Snowball was added.

2010 Christmas event[edit | edit source]

The snowmen returned again in the 2010 Christmas event. They could be found at the Heimland Games, where they could be built with the snow, however for these you didn't need a hat or weapon to bring them alive, just adding the final snowball would bring them alive.

2011 Easter event[edit | edit source]

A single snowman is found at the ‎Land of Holly and Hawthorn with the Queen of Snow. He says that when spring comes, snowmen don't melt away; they return to the Land of Snow.

2011 Christmas event[edit | edit source]

A snow mage fighting a snow ranger.

In 2011 there was a snowman battle between Wizard Grayzag/Whitezag and Wizard Frumscone, players could help one of them by building snowmen on one of the snowman patches that were on each side of the battlefield by adding snow to them. Snow could be collected from the pile of snow (or with a Snow globe if they had one), they could choose what snowman they wanted to make, a warrior, a ranger or a mage, when the player added enough snow their team's wizard would bring it to life. The goal of this minigame was to let your team's snowmen reach the other side of the field. But the other team could also build snowmen and when the snowman faced each other they would fight, you could help your snowmen by pelting them with Snowballs to heal them. When one of the snowmen died the others could walk further, when a snowman reached the other side your team would gain a point. They have 300 life points.

Occasionally there would also spawn a group of combat based snowmen, these were escaped Frosty creations from the Wizards' Tower, players could kill these and would receive 5 Snowballs as drop. This also introduced a new type of snowman, the Snow Fremennik which looked exactly the same as the snowmen from the 2010 Christmas event.

Traditional snowmen could also be found as scenery on various places during the 2011 Christmas event, like Varrock, Draynor Village, etc.

2012 Winter Weekends[edit | edit source]

A snowman melts after being killed.

For the fifth weekend featuring Snowman Raids, all of the combat-based snowmen appeared at certain places and dropped various rewards ranging from cabbages to dragon equipment.

The areas they spawned from include:

  • Varrock, south of the Grand Exchange
  • Falador, near the south gate
  • Lumbridge, outside the cow field
  • Ardougne market
  • Camelot, near the teleport spot
  • Gnome Stronghold, outside the Grand Tree

2015 Christmas event[edit | edit source]

During the 2015 Christmas event, players could build Snow warriors, rangers and mages on the iceberg for experience.

2016 Christmas event[edit | edit source]

In the 2016 Christmas event, snowmen appeared with the same roles as they did in the 2007 and 2011 events.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Snowmen would occasionally pelt bypassing players with a snowball and then look away and whistle like nothing happened as seen below.
  • Snowmen's noses seem to be limpwurt roots rather than traditional carrots.
