This 9mm pistol made of solid ice can penetrate 12 inches of snow. In addition to its stopping power, it also has collaborating power and listening power. Also... umm... Coolio.
(In-game plural: ice nines)
- In the item description, the "stopping" "collaborating" and "listening" powers alludes to the song Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice.
- The item's name refers to firearms with bullets in the nine-millimeter caliber range being called nines for short. It also refers to ice-nine, a fictional form of ice with an unusually high melting point, which appears in Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat's Cradle.
- It being able to penetrate "12 inches of snow" is a reference to the album of the same name by Canadian reggae musician Snow.
