A boomerang is a ranged weapon, designed for throwing.

When thrown, it will travel in a circular path clockwise from the direction thrown, hitting anything in its path: in most versions it will alternate with ( as it flies to show spinning. If it makes its way back to you there is a (dexterity in 20) chance of catching the boomerang; otherwise it hits you. A boomerang that is cursed or thrown while fumbling will always hit you. Boomerangs will not return if their path is blocked by a wall, or if they move over a sink. [1]

The exact path of the thrown boomerang is shown below in order 1-9 for each direction. Despite some redeeming features the unusual throwing mechanics make this a rarely used weapon.
