Summary

This was the boss for Christmas 2016. PlaceRebuilder, while working on this boss, briefly scrapped it, and announced: "ITS PAPA G. BREAD NOW". After a brief reconsideration, PlaceRebuilder changed his mind and scrapped Papa G. Bread.

Rhi-snow was then added due to the fact that it was the only replacement to Papa G. Bread. Rhi-snow has a variant health pool depending on players, and has four attacks.


The Rhi-snow lives in its territory, specifically named the Rhi-snow Territory.

Background Story

Many rumors circulated throughout the wastelands, complexes, and outposts throughout the world that an evil would rise in December 2016. After rigorous exploring and weeks spent searching, the rumors were disregarded to be no more than mere fiction, but a dedicated team confirmed its existence. Survivors have found the one of the rarest, dangerous species on Earth: the Rhi-snow. A rhino with a hide of hardened ice and the power of 50 men.

Rewards

  • 200 Experience Points.
  • Tickets upon the area in where the Rhi-snow died.
  • "Won Christmas Event 2016" badge.
  • Chests (# depends on the remaining survivors) which may contain:
    • Multiples of both regular and event items (1-20x).
    • Gift of Peace (you only get one even if it says 5-20x).
    • Varying amounts of cash.
    • Nothing at all.

Tips

  • Use any weapon that deals more damage overall.
    • The Thompson is recommended with Bulldozer armor.
    • The Flamethrower would most likely be the most effective against this boss, as the Rhi-snow was born from ice and snow.
  • Recommended items to bring are pills, medkits, molotovs, and grenades.
  • Avoid Ice Tornadoes when possible, it can toss you right in front of Rhi-snow.
  • Avoid Ground Pound at any cost as getting hit directly, or getting caught in the blast will instantly kill anyone without the proper equipment.
  • Until v0.9.0, It was possible to use the defibrillator to send Rhi-snow flying with a chance of it flying off the map entirely, causing a win.
    • If not successful, Rhi-snow would teleport back to the centre of the map mostly as if nothing had happened.
  • If you are stuck under the boss, simply crouch and when you are free you can stop crouching, doing this will have a greater chance of you not being flung.
  • You will be stunned and damaged simply by touching the horn, so try to avoid his face.

Trivia

  • This is the second Christmas Boss to be added to R2DA.
  • The third boss to be developed as an animal.
  • The Rhi-snow was the first cut and re-added boss.
  • The Rhi-snow is the successor of the Gatekeeper in the R2D Winter Event.
  • This boss is very similar to Yeti boss in the Winter Event in 2015.
    • This map is also similar to Yeti's Cave (except the Rhi-snow lives in the middle of the Arctic Ocean).
  • Rhi-snow has the largest health pool so far, but Lord Pumpkin Jr. easily beats this boss pre-nerf.
  • Like the King Crab boss, the max health depends on the amount of players on the server.
    • The base value for this Boss is 100,000, raising by 10,000 for each player on the server.
      • If you're into math, the formula is y = 10,000x + 100,000, with x representing the amount of players on the server, and y representing the total HP of Rhi-snow.
  • Its name is a portmanteau of "Rhino" and "Snow".
  • Rhi-snow's Ground Pound can be shot and still hit a player from above.
  • When defeated, the Winscreen would flash, and both the old and the new "Victory!" text would appear without anyone being teleported.
  • A statue of Rhi-Snow appears in Zero Kelvin Station.
