One versus a 10 stack of Bananarangs attacking a Target Dummy.

Not to be confused with the Banana, a food item.

The Bananarang is a Hardmode boomerang, which can be stacked up to 10 in one slot, and thrown rapidly, similarly to Light Discs. They return to the owner once they hit an enemy, come in contact with a block, or reach their maximum range. Bananarangs are dropped by Clowns in stacks of 1 – 4 with a chance of 3.33*1/30 (3.33%).

The Bananarang cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.

Notes[]

Tips[]

  • In contrast to Light Discs, Bananarangs do not ricochet and do not travel quite as far. However, the larger stack size and low delay between throws means that a player can keep a greater number of projectiles in the air at once.
    • This makes them very good at dealing with flying enemies, as well as keeping crowds at bay. Along with their autofire, they are quite powerful from early to mid-Hardmode, especially during events.
  • The Bananarang is able to be obtained as early as the first Blood Moon in Hardmode, yet inflicts more damage than most Adamantite and Titanium weapons.
  • In Journey Mode, its research cost of only 1 allows easily obtaining a full stack.
