The playstyle of Captain Boomerang is to use your Speed Dashes often to close the gap between you and your enemies. Teleport behind and above enemies, drop a grenade, and blast them all with your Shotgun. Use your Afflictions, especially Ice and Crazed, and your Melee once each enemy has Shield Harvest to keep your shields high. When there is a large group of enemies, use Speedster’s Surprise, and when there’s one big enemy, use Suicide Strike.

The Talents you should take for Captain Boomerang to make the best build focus on Shotgun damage, Critical Damage, Speedster’s Surprise, and Shield Harvesting. Shield Harvesting in particular is extremely important in the endgame. In general, it’s hard to Shield Harvest enemies, and doing so is crucial to staying alive, which is why we’ll take every Shield Harvesting Talent we have access to.

Here are the best Talents for Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League:

  • Shoot ‘Em Up
    • Jackpot – Good starter skill.
    • Party Supplies – Needed to spawn more Shields, and grenade spawns aren’t bad either.
    • Shotgunner – Synergizes with using Shotguns and increases the chance to Shield Harvest.
    • Another Round – A useful skill to generate more shields.
    • Close Quarters – Increases close-quarter Shotgun damage and gives us a chance at more live grenades.

While you can play Captain Boomerang as a ranged assassin or a menace with an SMG, the Talent skill tree has the best buffs for Shotgun, and using a Sniper Rifle as your secondary is crucial to quickly eliminate enemies that are far away. The SMG and the Shotgun fulfill similar purposes, so go with the Shotgun for more damage.

You can use just about any synergy you like best, but since we’re in Season 0 and the Notorious and Infamy gear focus on the Crazed Affliction, I recommend equipping anything with the Crazed Affliction (the green one) synergy.

Here are the best weapons, melee, grenade, and gear for Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Note that there are probably better weapons, gear, and synergies to be had as you grind for better gear in the endgame, but this is the best Captain Boomerang Loadout I’ve created so far:

  • Firearm 1 – Black Mask’s Bulletstorm Sniper Rifle
  • Firearm 2 – Bizarro’s Undeath Ray Shotgun
  • Melee – Two-Face Persuader
  • Grenade – Demolisher
  • Shield Mod – Red Tape
  • Traversal Mod – Gravitropism
  • Neck Bomb Mod – Venom Tolerance
  • Lucky Charm – Thigmotropism

I hope you enjoy the best Captain Boomerang build in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Feel free to tweak it to your needs and playstyle. In the meantime, need help finding all the Riddler Trophies?
