Bananarangs attacking a Target Dummy.
Not to be confused with the Banana(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions), a food item.

The Bananarang is a Hardmode boomerang. It returns to the owner once it hits an enemy, comes in contact with a block, or reaches its maximum range. The Bananarang can be dropped by Clowns, which spawns during Blood Moons.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Bananarang is not stackable, and can be thrown rapidly, with a maximum of 10 Bananarangs being thrown out at the same time. Its drop chance is 1/10 (10%). Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, Bananarangs can be stacked up to 10 in one slot. The bigger the stack is, the more can be thrown out at the same time. Their drop chance is 1/30 (3.33%), and they drop in stacks of 1–4. The Bananarang cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.



  • In contrast to Light Discs, Bananarangs do not ricochet and do not travel quite as far. (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) However, the larger stack size and low delay between throws means that a player can keep a greater number of projectiles in the air at once.
    • This makes them very good at dealing with flying enemies, as well as keeping crowds at bay. Along with their autofire, they are quite powerful from early to mid-Hardmode, especially during events.
  • The Bananarang is able to be obtained as early as the first Blood Moon in Hardmode, yet inflicts more damage than most Adamantite and Titanium weapons.
  • Despite being a banana, the Bananarang cannot be eaten by the player.


  • Bananarang is a portmanteau of the words banana and boomerang.
