This article is about the Boomerang. You may be looking for the Magmarang.

The Boomerang is a small, passive fauna species. It is extremely common and found in many biomes.

The Boomerang is fairly easy to catch, especially during night time due to its diurnal behaviour, and has moderate Food values.


The Boomerang is a small fish with a bright, yellow-green center and dark green stripes along the sides and edges of its body. It is horizontally symmetrical, and, as its name suggests, similar in shape to a real life boomerang.

The Boomerang's top and bottom protrude long, slim pointed fins extending diagonally backwards from its main body. The tips of these fins give off a cyan bioluminescent glow. It has four eyes, with two on each side of its head, being respectively above and below of its mouth.


The Boomerang sways side-to-side as it swims. If approached by the player, it will eventually flee.

It is a fast swimmer, and is usually found to be very active during the day. During the night, it usually finds shelter near the caves or the seabed.

They are very commonly seen in Shoals around the map but also around Reefbacks, 3 to 5 Singular Boomerangs can be found around Reefbacks as well.
