The Sniper's excuse for his horrible boomerang throwing

The Ranger's Returner is a secondary weapon for the Sniper. It looks like a sharpened wooden Boomerang with one end made out of stone.

The boomerang doesn't return when thrown. It moves in an almost linear arc at enemies. On hit the enemy is stunned for one second and takes minor damage.

The kill icon for the Ranger's Returner was contributed by Mecha the Slag.
