The Ice Boomerang's animation.

The Ice Boomerang is a pre-Hardmode boomerang that behaves like a regular Wooden Boomerang, but is faster and emits light. On Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile, it can also inflict the Frostburn debuff for 3 seconds. The Ice Boomerang has a 1551/10000 (15.51%) chance of being found inside Frozen Chests in the Ice biome, as well as a 1/6 (16.67%) chance of being obtained from Frozen(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) and Boreal Crates(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.
