Boomerangs Add-on (1.14+)

This add-on adds a new weapon in the game, a boomerang! There are other add-ons about this subject but this is my version. There are two types of boomerangs, a normal one and a piercing one. You can have fun with these new weapons just by throwing them around.

They will NOT work properly on multiplayer. The boomerang’s behavior to return will target the nearest player,

👉Crafting recipes!👈

How to throw

Throw a boomerang like how you would throw eggs, snowballs, and ender pearls.

This is a video of demonstration


They can return to you after you throw them like how a trident with the loyalty enchantment works.

You can use them for melee as well, although it isn’t recommended.

You can repair them by throwing them.


A normal boomerang can knock targets back.

It has lower damage than the piercing one.

It can’t go through mobs.

It can’t go through blocks.

Throwing it to a wall can make it return to you.

Damage scale:

  • Wooden – 2
  • Stone – 3
  • Iron – 4
  • Gold – 2
  • Diamond – 6


It cannot knock targets back.

It has higher damage than the normal one.

It can go through mobs and pierce them.

It can go through blocks.

It has a risk of going through bedrock and losing it to the void.

Damage scale:

  • Wooden – 4
  • Stone – 5
  • Iron – 6
  • Gold – 4
  • Diamond – 8

Knockback and piercing demonstration

Melee demonstration

Wall throwing demonstration

TNT boomerang

It has the same behavior as the iron boomerang as it has the same damage, what’s special about this boomerang is that it explodes when it hits a wall or a target. The explosion won’t destroy any blocks, it just damages entities. It returns to the player afterwards.

Hopper boomerang

It has the same behavior as the piercing iron boomerang as it has the same damage, what’s speical about this boomerang is that it picks up items and goes through walls while it damages entities. It still picks up items when it returns.

Video demonstration

Blazing boomerang

It has the same behavior as the piercing golden boomerang as it has the same damage, this boomerang can set mobs on fire!

Lightning boomerang

It has the same behavior as the iron boomerang as it has the same damage, what’s special about this boomerang is that it summons a lightning bolt when it hits a wall or target.

Ice boomerang

It has only 1 damage and it’s very very weak. What’s special about this boomerang is that when it pierces targets, it slows them down for a few seconds.

Wither boomerang

It has the same damage as the wooden piercing boomerang as it has the same damage, what’s special about this boomerang is that when it pierces targets, it inflicts the wither effect.

Video demonstration

You can also place them!

To place them, use the “Item ground ( Boomerangs )” and interact with any item from the add-on to display them.

    • TheAttackBread says:

      This actually isn’t your fault, but do you know how to get past the glitch? Or could you make it a direct link to mediafire until the glitch is fixed?

  3. LAgamer says:

  7. Rea1804 says:

  8. Minecraft world edit says:

  9. Minecraft world edit says:

    U can do a teleport boomerang, you need to use a diamond boomerang, two enderpears and two the only plant of end(i think is named chorus right)?

    I love this add-on!! However it doesn’t work with your elemental swords

  11. Guest-1281003316 says:

    The best mod ever ever ever ever i luv u mod nice mod very nice..

  12. Guest-7311534958 says:

    It would be good if the boomerang returned to you and not in the form of an item, since if you run and use it you will lose it

  13. Guest-8485885081 says:

    I love the addon!

  14. Guest-1457497572 says:

    Can you please make a morph addon that allows you to collect the soul of the mob that you killed and be able to turn into them that would be so cool

  15. MorbidNoob says:

    Perhaps maybe instead of using the line of code “{ “test”: “is_family”, “subject”: “other”, “value”: “player” }” you could use “{ “test”: “is_family”, “subject”: “other”, “value”: “parent” }”. Maybe that would make it go back because projectiles should keep track of their owner

  16. MorbidNoob says:

    You should just make it go in a circle going to the place it was thrown from(it wouldn’t matter if the player is still there)

  17. Guest-8230819095 says:

    Maybe add a knockback boomerang that knocks mobs away a crafted with slime or pistons maybe please

  18. Guest-7484560574 says:

    Hopper boomerang should break crops, all boomerangs should deal damage on their way back and add a grapple boomerang or a teleport one and what are the crafting recipes for the boomerangs?

  19. Guest-2617092608 says:

    It would be cool if ur addon was compatible with Nikita_Dementyev Addons, maybe you could try and make it to where it can work along side them.
