Boomerangs are missiles that return when thrown. They have default stats of (+3, 2d4+1).


They are very rare, but share a weapon class with the more common scurgari. While they can be quite useful due to their returning capabilities, they are highly susceptible to item destruction means and can sometimes break after being thrown. (Notably, in ADOM versions prior to 1.2.0 pr23 boomerangs could not be destroyed by being thrown, making a boomerang with the suffix "of slaying" extremely valuable.)

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. A hurthling Assassin starts with a boomerang in his or her backpack.
