If you’re interested in playing Captain Boomerang, it’s useful to get a quick overview of all his talents so you can plan a build. He’s all about darting around the battlefield mixing short and long-range weapons. Here are all Captain Boomerang skills listed in Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League.

Every Captain Boomerang Skill, Talent, and Ability in Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League

Captain Boomerang is the glass cannon of the bunch, sporting high damage and mobility. Maining King Shark and playing Harley Quinn, it took me some time to get used to Boomerang’s traversal mechanics and combat style. If you do, too, do what I did and practice around the Hall of Justice.

Boomerang has several maneuvering options with his Speed Force Boomerang teleport for distance, up to three quick short-distance teleports, and the Speed Force Sprint. This makes him the fastest character in the game on the ground with decent maneuverability in the air with teleport dashes.

As for damage, he’s extremely versatile since he can effectively wield both short-range and long-range weapons. Here are his talent trees:

  • Shoot ’Em Up: His first talent tree focuses on both high Shotgun damage at close range but also Sniper Rifles for powerful shots at long range.
  • Boomin’ Boomerangs: Boosts his close-range damage, shields, and shield recovery.
  • Speedsterania: This tree focuses on maintaining Boomerang’s combo meter while offering bonuses for using his traversal abilities.

Let’s now take a closer look at the talents from each tree like we did for King Shark and Deadshot as well.
