Where to find the Kinetic Boomerang in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3

The Kinetic Boomerang may be found in chests and as floor loot all across the Chapter 4 Season 3 island, though it seems to spawn more frequently at the three new POIs – Rumble Ruins, Creeky Compound, and Shady Stilts.

You can also find them mounted on pedestals in Rumble Ruins; simply approach one and interact with it to claim the item. The Kinetic Boomerang equips a mechanical glove to the player’s hand that may be used to retract the boomerang after it has been hurled.

Simply target an enemy or object, and then press the fire button to launch it. After being thrown, it will automatically circle back to your hand.

You can do non-explosive damage by just throwing the boomerang towards an object; however, pressing the ADS button at the last second will cause the boomerang to explode, dealing explosive damage to the object.

Afterwards, the Kinetic Boomerang will immediately retract back into your hand and go into your inventory. It inflicts 60 body and 110 headshot damage at an opponent and is best employed at mid-range fights in the game.
