The Mounted Scanner is a craftable Hardmode summon weapon. It summons a floating machine that surrounds the player. When an enemy is nearby, the machine fires red laser beams at them. The beam's damage is reduced by 40% every hit, and reduced again by 1/7 of the enemy's defense.

The weapon consumes 0.85 units of charge per use and has a maximum charge of 85.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Mounted Scanner has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
