The Boomerang is a ranged weapon from the Scorched Earth-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.


The Boomerang is used to increase Torpor and knockout creatures. It will knock out an unarmored player in about 3 hits.

The Boomerang is a very useful taming tool and inflicts torpor from melee damage and ranged damage. It inflicts more torpor from ranged use.

If the Boomerang hits a target, it will fly straight back to the user. if it does not hit a target, it will circle counterclockwise to the user.

The user can not throw another boomerang until the first one returns.

The Boomerang can be used to gather resources from trees and dead creatures.

The Boomerang's durability is handled like that of the Spear—that is, rather than a fixed amount of durability that is consumed over time, it has a chance of breaking with each use. Although it has the attributes of a spear and a chance of breaking, it has a lessened chance therefore you can use it more.

The boomerang is a stackable item so it will be important to stack about 5 because of the chance of breaking.

It is recommended not to use the melee attack when taming with a boomerang, as it deals the same damage as a throw but induces less torpor.

Aiming the boomerang towards the ground when taming is a useful technique. The boomerang will bounce off of the ground back to the user quickly rather than taking its normal course through the air.
