I even hit NPC enemies during the Gree Event, and Cannons as well.

You can get parcels from targets that already have the buff/debuff. Just as long as you weren't the one to apply it in the first place. I've gotten a bunch like that on fleet and when my guild was running Xeno.

There does appear to be some kind of bug going on with it. After I bought the snowball I threw a bunch and got 7 snow covered parcels, then suddenly I stopped getting them. No matter how many I throw I haven't gotten another parcel since last night, interestingly enough though my achievements say I should have 35 of them (I still have only received 7 parcels in game). I've submitted a ticket and will hopefully hear back from them soon.

I got ten alone outside the Xeno entrance while waiting for people to show up and I put the snowball in my dps rotation on pve mobs, the latter generated quite a few. Warzones were another productive source, you're going to spend a minute waiting for the game to start anyway and as long as people click off their snowball buffs you'll always have a target. Threw snowballs at a good deal of players in warzones too (you can do it while being stunned).

If you're just looking to farm I'd recommend Ilum. People were standing around and clicking off their buffs there so it was never hard to find a target.
Uh... You can get parcels on target with the buff, just not if it's the buff you applied. Have gotten 3 that way so far.

I'm having the same problem. :/

Yes. Even with the buff on, you can still hit and get parcel. Tested and verified. So, buff on or off, just fire away.

Try going off the fleet and doing missions and hitting the npc that way. I find it easier to get the parcels that way than on the fleet.

As long as the buff is not applied by you it has a chance to give you a parcel. The snowballs work against npcs, too, so throw one during a FP or raid.
