The Scourge of the Desert is a javelin dropped by the Desert Scourge. When used it automatically throws a javelin that gains velocity while in flight. Thrown javelins are slightly affected by gravity and can pierce through two enemies.

Performing a stealth strike with the Scourge of the Desert causes the next javelin thrown to be less affected by gravity, pierce up to 19 enemies, and gain 20% more damage per enemy hit up to a maximum of +200% of the weapon's base damage.

Its best modifier is Flawless.
