    It should be craftable With three pieces of that expensive all sided wood

    It should behave kinda like boomerangs in plants vs zombies 2, that hits through back and forth mobs and can also make an achievements when hitting a zombie as a reference

    The crafting recipe should be something like this:

    0 = none

    s = stick

    p = plank

    0  0  s

    0  0  s

    s  s  p

    I think the boomerang should do 5 damage, and fly in a curve. When you throw it, its trajectory should be in a curve and if it doesn't hit anything, then it'll fly back towards you for you to catch. But if it does hit an entity, then it'll bounce onto a block for someone to pick up. And if it ends up hitting a block, then it'll stay there for someone to pick up. Microsoft, please consider adding boomerangs to Minecraft.

    Loyalty could serve as a way to get the boomerang back if you don't catch it.

    This would be an awesome addition. I can see this being used in puzzle maps to hit targets that are behind walls and stuff. The crafting recepie could be two reinforced sticks (made from two sticks put together with slime) and one iron. How about when it comes back it just goes back to the general detection it was thrown from and then you can add the loyalty enchantment so it will always come back no matter the obstacles. Maybe you could add a new enchantment called "Digging" and then it could be used for a way to mine things quicker and the stronger the level the tougher the blocks it can mine. For example, level 1 could mine dirt, leaves, wood, and other things you could normaly mine with your hand. Level 2 could mine stone, ores, blackstone, bassalt, and other things you could mine with an iron pickaxe. Level 3 could mine obsidian, ancient debris, and other things you could mine with a diamond or netherite pickaxe. Another enchantment you could have is "gripping". Gripping 1 could pick up items you have mined or are already on the ground and arrows that have landed from being shot.

    I was gonna say this should be a magic based weapon to account for the return, but Evan Diaz is spot on. This would give Loyalty more. Compared to Tridents the boomerang would not be used underwater (Maybe if enchanted & magical) & without the enchant you are required to go pick it up (maybe 9 out of 10 times.)

     

    Finding functionality away from most mechanics expressed over time in games would be hard. Triggering switches & hitting enemies at tricky angles has always been a staple of a boomerang.

    What if you could enchant it with sharpness, bigger trajectory, and speed.

    Boomerangs should also be able to get upgraded with the smithing table. Maybe using a different tier system than iron and diamonds.

    The boomerang should have a spell that allows it to bounce off walls (only to return to the player) and pick up items lying at a distance.

    Boomerangs were used to break kangaroo's necks. What if it does more damage if u hit backside of a player/mob
