Not to be confused with Scourge of the Seas, a visually similar javelin dropped by the Aquatic Scourge.

The Dune Hopper is a Pre-Hardmode javelin that drops from the Desert Scourge in Malice Mode. When used it will throw a Dune Hopper that will bounce five times before disappearing.

Performing a stealth strike with the Dune Hopper will cause three javelins to be thrown instead of one. The three javelins have slightly higher velocity.

Its best modifier is Flawless.


  • The weapon's sprite resembles the Aquatic Scourge despite being dropped by the Desert Scourge.
    • The sprite also resembles the Desert Scourge's older sprite, which had blue scales instead of brown ones.
  • It was formerly the rare variant of the Scourge of the Desert.
