The Scourge of the Seas is a Hardmode javelin that is dropped by the Aquatic Scourge and is an indirect upgrade to the Scourge of the Desert. When used, it throws a javelin that gains velocity while in flight. Thrown javelins are slightly affected by gravity and when in contact with an enemy, they will explode into toxic clouds. The javelin and clouds inflict the Irradiated debuff.

Performing a stealth strike with the weapon will cause the next javelin and its spawned clouds to inflict the Acid Venom debuff.

Its best modifier is Flawless.


  • The Scourge of the Seas was implemented based on a community suggestion made by spideradult on the mod's Discord server.
  • The Scourge of the Seas could be considered an alternate version of the Wave Skipper.
