“You don't want to encounter Rogue Boyz with their 'bomz'. They'll aim to destroy anything and everything they see with no pause for thought, no care as to how much damage they will cause and no realisation that their backpacks are about to overload. They'll cause nothing but fireworks and explosions wherever they will go. Whether they aim accurately or not, you cannot deny they are a danger.”

Arguably, the Loron Boomerz rank originates from the Loron Civilization Stage, when the Loron discovered the ability to cause an explosion. There were many Loron who enjoyed these explosions, and became addicted to causing huge 'boomz' around the battle; explosions release endorphins to Loron.
The rank was first truly developed in the DCP/Loron War, when the Loron needed a method of taking down the DCP's large vehicles with more than just their feet. Eventually, Da Chikz and Da Geekz developed new weapons for firing rockets.
Da Rogue Boyz
In the origin of Da Rogue Boyz, when the normal Zalk'don was killed, his 'boom boyz' were used for Da Rogue Boyz. However, later, during Da Moovment, the dark Zalk'don joined Da Rogue Boyz after nearly being killed by an explosion; he had been given antimatter technology by the Marinoxidiz, which the Rogue Boyz adopted for themselves.
Later, when the Tralkikianoe gave the Rogue Boyz technology, the Boomerz were given safer antimatter technology, further boosting their weaponry.
Boomerz are often found wearing bits of scrap and junk, as well as wearing large amounts of cases in which ammunition is stored, to show off their 'boom facta'. Some Boomerz have cybernetic implants, often results of explosions they have been involved in. They also wear armour made from pats of vehicles and structures they have destroyed, on which they tend to count every explosion they've made, as a way of showing off to the others.
Boomerz tactics and thinking is straight forward - charge to the nearest thing and cause the biggest destruction possible. They charge towards the biggest tank, tearing up everything in their way with their tankhamma. When they reach the tank, they usually pile on it and smash it up with tankhammaz, or break it open and climb inside, while Boom Boyz with the missile launchers fire at other tanks with missiles. Boom Boyz are maniacs on the battle field, they love explosions more than anyone else.
Boomerz are Loron who cause havoc across the battlefield and who an undeniable thrill of blowing a vehicle sky high, and other Loron enjoy the fireworks since Loron enjoy watching explosions. They tend to enjoy the thrill of a direct hit and a vehicle 's parts flying up into the air more than other Loron do. Loron do use missile launchers, usually stolen, but they do charge up to a tank and whack it with a "tankhamma" or grab hold of the vehicle and attach a bomb. Often Loron with this job die doing so, however, as Loron genes improve, they get better at resisting explosions.
Loron Boomerz get so fixated with this job that it's all they ever talk about. In a battle, they judge how good it was by the number of tanks they blew up, number of vehicles which came toppling down, and the carnage across the battle. They are so intent on working out which to destroy, and so busy enjoying the fireworks, that they never pay attention to the bloodshed on the battlefield. However, this can lead to the death of several Boom Boyz.
In Rogue Boyz society, Boomerz often hang around with other Boom gangz and blow up houses regardless of who they belong to. Of course they often get complaints, in terms of gang bangz, but at the end of the day Boom Boyz say "ya gotta admit, dat was a good boom".
Their equipment is very heavy. They often carry:
- Da Missile Launchaz- made by Loron, often very heavy and good at destroying things
- Missile Launchers- Stolen
- Tankhammaz- Hammers with a rocket-shaped end, they are designed to smash up tanks. They are very powerful and heavy, but fairly slow next to knives
- Da Bomz- Bombs that, when detonated, cause massive fireworks
- Grenadez- Often not very small and go off a bit too quickly
- Knives or Shankaz- Knives are with them "cos every Boy needs ta kno how ta shank hur hur hur"
Boom Boyz only real "ability" would be their survivability against tanks; they're so used to explosions and surviving tank fire that their bodies are resistant to them.
Boom Boyz attacks are maniacal, strong, slow and persistent. They enjoy firing multiple missiles everywhere, only properly aiming once in a while for the thrill. They tend to deal with infantry quickly just to get them out of the way.
- How a Loron "BLOWS STOOF UP"
"Booming" stuff for a Loron can mean several things. Such as:
- Loron can plant mines or timed/detonated explosives (similar to C4) and destroy vehicles
- They can launch Da Missilez and blow vehicles or buildings up
- They can, in starships, blow other starships up
- They can go in Vehicles and ram into stuff
- Higher-in-the-rank-Lorons can launch Da Planet Bustaz
More recently, Boomerz have worn thicker and tougher armour, often made from parts of vehicles and structures they have destroyed. This is because Boomerz have realised that, should part of their ammunition be hit, they could die in the explosion. When fighting, some Boomerz take cover while aiming at whichever vehicle they've set their mind on destroying; this cover is often behind the vehicle they most recently destroyed.
Boomerz are very valuable to a Rogue Boy Warboyz army, not only due to the tactical advantage, but psychological advantage; blowing up vehicles causes an explosion, which releases endorphins to Loron, as well as boosting their morale. Their rampage can be surprisingly devastating to enemy armies and their vehicles, and also removes one method of killing Loron: long ranged weaponry.
