The Scorched Sands is a biome entirely made up of Scorched Sand generated upon the defeat of Abaddon, the Source of the Affliction. Unlike most biomes, this biome is capable of spreading, similar to that of the Crimson, Corruption and Hallow. This biome is simply a Desert variant of the Flame Razed Forest and can have Sandstorms occur that, similarly to the Corrupted, Crimson and Hallowed Deserts, allow a stronger variant of Sand Sharks to spawn.

- 1.0.4: Introduced.
