    I love it.  An early game ranged weapon that does less damage than a wooden sword and far less than a bow and arrow, so it isn't overpowered for how easy it is to craft.  Like an unenchanted trident, you would have to go pick it up after throwing it, making it even more balanced.

    You might as well allow it to be enchanted with Loyalty, but I'm not sure anyone would bother.  It would be like enchanting a wooden sword with Unbreaking III.

    ClayGoddessSari, Since boomerangs are real life items and are known for always coming back after thrown, it would come back without loyalty, and you would only have to pick it up if it hits a block or something.But thanks for the support!

    I think this would be a fun, more rewarding addition as an uncraftable weapon found in dungeons.  (the crafting recipe just doesn't come together for me)

    It should come back if you miss, but a boomerang that hits something wouldn't be able to come back.  That's what I was thinking of.

    WolveReigner781 That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll edit it. ClayGoddessSari How about we compromise: you can pick it up if it hits something.

    @Red Riptide for a moment I just thought you were making a pun with ClayGoddessSari. XD

    The crafting recipe: sticks in a 3x3 L shape. 

    0 = empty space

    / = stick:

    00/

    00/

    / / /

    And you could draw and throw it at the perfect time to increase the speed and how far it would go, similar to the "horse jump bar".

    I think the crafting recipe should be 5 wood planks in the same shape as the helmet recipe.

    I think it should have a short range and charge up speed. Maybe some enchantments too:

    Gust: Increases knockback

    Grab: The boomerang pulls enemies towards you for a possible melee attack, not compatible with gust.

    Strength: Boomerang has increased damage

    The weapon could stun and hit many enemies. There isn't enough multiple hit weapons! There could be an iron edged version. I thought over a recipe 3 wood planks in a triangle shape

    I personally was gonna make a post about different types of Boomerangs a long time ago but seeing that this is here, I don't see why I shouldn't keep my ideas away forever. Let me see what I have here....

    There should also be a iron boomerang, but not gold and diamond, kinda like doors ant trapdoors 

    and it could have enchantments,

    Ricochet: can bounce off walls and will go to creature and creature 

    Kylie: will follow a strait, forward and back path(cant be combined with ricochet) 

    Range: Boomerang will go further

    I was just wandering how it would be crafted and the materials needed or if it couldn’t be crafted? And it would also be awesome if you could control it after you throw it.

    I really like that.  I was going to make the same sort of recommendation but you beat me to it.  Great minds think alike.  my suggestion was going to be something like this:

     

    I haven't read all the suggestion to Mojang for new features but I would like to offer up the possibility of a new weapon. The boomerang. The idea being that if you miss your target it would return for another try. But, as the physics of Minecraft are not like the physics of the real world, perhaps it would return even if it hit an enemy. Then, like a bow or sword or any other physical thing it would wear out and disappear or need to be repaired before it was destroyed. I hope that is an inspiring thought and a neat little twist to the game.

    Or you could craft it by making sticks from baobab wooden planks

    I'm thinking that it would have two uses. One is for combat and the other one is for returning objects to the player. Maybe it could even destroy blocks.
