The Wooden Boomerang is the lowest tier of boomerang. It is found in Wooden Chests located on the surface and within the underground layer. It can also be purchased from the Skeleton Merchant for 1 during a full moon.

It can be upgraded into the Enchanted Boomerang with a Fallen Star.

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

  • In Celebrationmk10 worlds, the Wooden Boomerang can be found with the normally-incompatible Legendary modifier. The size boost will not take effect, though it is still the best modifier possible.


  • Due to the fact that it can very cheaply be upgraded into an Enchanted Boomerang, players who find a Wooden Boomerang should upgrade it as soon as possible for the major stat increases. Since this also increases the sell price to 10 times its original, it is worth upgrading boomerangs as they are found.


  • It cannot be obtained from Wooden Crates, despite the fact that many of the other rare items found in Wooden Chests can.
