Keeping in tradition with previous years, this year's April Fools had something special! At some point late at night during the rise of the second of April some curious nomad clicked on his hunting bow in the loadout to discover he had a Boomerang instead! The Boomerang has only 80 damage but it fires surprisingly quickly and in classic boomerang flavour it whirls back to its origin point after it has reached its max range, surprising any beasts still lingering there.

Rumor has it that the Boomerang was initially a hack originating from Australian players who, frustrated by their inability to hit any players from Europe because they're literally worlds away, came up with a way to have their projectiles zoom back to their targets to compensate for their lag issues! But that's just a rumor of course!

In response to the new human Boomerang, beast players cried out in disgust about this ever prevalent human privilege. Never mind those pesky win rates all the stat geeks are talking about; when humans get a new weapon, the horde should get one as well, damnit! And so the benevolent game devs [dev edit: stop sucking up, Tjens!] also added a new beast weapon to the game's arsenal. It's a skull. And you can throw it. Good luck hitting anything other than an immobile critter, but it's a weapon! Yay! [dev edit: you can also hit stationary nomads trying to block around. :/ ]

What did you think about this year's April Fools'?
