The Counter Scarf is a Pre-Hardmode accessory exclusive to Revengeance Mode. It is dropped by the Eye of Cthulhu.
Wearing the scarf grants the player the ability to dash by double tapping the ◀ Left or ▶ Right key.
While dashing, the player will dodge attacks and is granted the Scarf Boost buff and the Scarf Cooldown debuff. The buff grants +10% damage, +5% crit chance, and 10% melee speed. The debuff will temporarily prevent the user from dodging any more attacks, though the user is still able to dash.
The scarf also increases damage for all melee weapons which don't fire projectiles by 20%. Weapons that produce effects such as explosions or projectiles on enemy hits such as the Grand Guardian and Earth still benefit from this damage bonus, but the swords that always fire a projectile, Arkhalis and the Murasama do not.
- It is not advised to wear the Counter Scarf with another dash-granting item, as the scarf will override the latter item, making its ability useless.
