Strategy

Tips

  • The weapon is useful for crowd control, especially in Arena mode since the monsters can be circled around to have them tightly packed.
  • Due to its limited range, only use this weapon at close range.
  • Claustrophobic (tight) spaces may help you easily kill your target(s).
  • This weapon is effective against groups of enemies at a straight away. Strafe while firing when enemies are lined up on the crosshairs to score hits on multiple enemies at once.
  • This weapon is perfect for countering mobile players at close range.
  • Firing the weapon can leave one vulnerable from a flanking an attack, keep an eye out for any enemies at both flanks.
  • When a hit enemy is attempting to avoid the projectile returning, keep the boomerang lined up with the enemy when it returns to increase the chances of scoring another hit.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
    • When hit, keep on moving to avoid getting hit again.
  • Attack the user when they are out of ammo.
  • Its mobility leaves users vulnerable from quicker players, use this weakness by doing hit-and-run attacks on the user.
  • When a user fires the projectile , they are vulnerable from the sides. Try ambushing the player with a Primary or Sniper weapon.
  • Keep your distance from the user and attack at a longer range.

Trivia

  • This is the second weapon after the Mooring Anchor to have the Boomerang attribute.
  • The Piercing Shot attribute on this weapon is practically useless as the Wall Break attribute includes the ability to pierce through targets.
  • It also seems to have no damage decrease even after hitting a wall or opponent.
