"This devastating Arc weapon is said to contain a shard of some dead celestial body. Lobbing bolts of rotting starfire, it is both a ruinous tactical weapon and an instrument of siege."
— Grimoire description[1]

A Boomer is a type of Hive weapon.

Overview

The Boomer deals Arc damage and has a devastating splash damage effect. Like most other Hive related items, it screeches while in use. It is mostly used by Knights and rarely by Acolytes. This weapon has an astonishingly long range, and because of the splash damage and arching effect of the bolts, it is very effective at flushing Guardians out of cover and suppress them with ease.

The Taken version fires Void bolts in a straight line, making it more precise, but also less versatile or Stasis bolts that slows targets on impact.

Another variant of the Boomer known as the Scorn Boomer is used exclusively by Hiraks, the Mindbender and fires similarly to a Taken Boomer.

Trivia

  • The Ex Diris Exotic Grenade Launcher is a wieldable version of a Boomer.
