- 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. It is the rare variant of the Scourge of the Desert. 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.
