The boomerang is a weapon in Dead Rising.

This is a throwing weapon which does not do much damage. When Frank throws the boomerang, it will travel in a wide arc and will often come back to Frank, provided he is in a clear enough area. They are very difficult to use effectively, and are best used outdoors or in wide, open areas, due to the fact that they stop when they collide with a solid object (like a wall).

They are found in children's stores around the Willamette Parkview Mall. Its durability can be increased with the Hobby and Sports books.


  • Primary: Tap the X button button to automatically throw the boomerang at the nearest zombie.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Right trigger trigger to go into aim mode then press the X button button to throw the boomerang.

When the Throw stat is maxed out, the boomerang will also deal additional damage from headshots, instantly killing any zombie.
