Boomerang (4e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Martial Ranged Weapons
|Boomerang||+2||1d6||5/10||10 gp||2 lb||Mace||Off-hand, Heavy Thrown, Returning|
A curved throwing stick made from wood or bone, with airfoil wings that allows it to bank through the air back to the wielder if they miss.
- Heavy Thrown
A ranged basic attack with a boomerang uses your Strength instead of your Dexterity for the attack and damage rolls.
A boomerang is light enough that you can hold it and attack effectively with it while holding a weapon in your main hand. You can't attack with both weapons in the same turn, unless you have a power that lets you do so, but you can attack with either weapon.
If you miss with a ranged attack made with a boomerang, you can catch it as a free action. If you do not wish (or are unable) to catch it, it falls at your feet in your space. A magic boomerang teleports back to your hand with no action, or into a sheath or backpack you are wearing if you wish.
