Changes[edit | edit source]
Items[edit | edit source]
Activated Collectibles[edit | edit source]
Increases chance for a Devil/Angel Room Door to open by 17.5%.
Passive Collectibles[edit | edit source]
- The type of randomized tear changes every 2-3 seconds. The item appears to select two tear effects at once, perhaps staggering the times at which each of those effects change.
- If a run is quit, and then continued, 3 Dollar Bill will keep tear effects for the current room.
- Abel shoots tears towards Isaac regardless of which direction Isaac is shooting.
- Ball of Bandages blocks enemy shots.
- Bob's Brain is fired directly from where it is located in the chain of familiars behind Isaac, making aiming it slightly more difficult.
- Can drop a Gold Bomb.
- Can drop a Gold Bomb.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
Pickups[edit | edit source]
Bombs[edit | edit source]
- Troll Bombs are now given a random amount of time before exploding. Before that they always exploded at a fixed time. This means that if two Troll Bombs spawn at the exact same time right next to each other, there's a high chance one Troll Bomb will blow up before the other, sending that Troll Bomb sliding outwards a bit before exploding.
NPCs[edit | edit source]
Monsters[edit | edit source]
- They only leave behind bones when killed.
Environment[edit | edit source]
Rooms[edit | edit source]
- Double Trouble boss rooms can now contain 2 bosses of different types. Additionally, they can appear as early as Chapter 1.
- Hush is always fought in a 2x2 room and Ultra Greed is fought in a double-sized one (2x1).
- Possible rewards found in the room include:
- Urns might spawn in the room.
- Killing Key key master and shell game beggar no longer applies the 25% bonus.
- Donating to a normal beggar until it pays out with an item on the current floor applies a 10% bonus instead of 25%.
- Donating to a Devil beggar until it pays out with an item on the current floor applies a 10% bonus instead of 25%.
- If this coin flip succeeds, a Devil Room will be generated regardless of the above coin flips.
- "You feel blessed!" fortune in the Sacrifice Room of the current floor applies a bonus:
- If the "You feel blessed!" fortune appeared on the 3rd sacrifice, the chance will be 15%.
- If the "You feel blessed!" fortune appeared on the 5th sacrifice, the chance will be 50%.
- If both "You feel blessed!" fortunes appeared, the chance will be 65%.
- Angel Rooms that spawn after Isaac defeats Mom's Heart or It Lives will be normal Angel Rooms with items or pickups.
- A troll bomb can sometimes appear behind the Angel Statue, blowing it up. If the Angel fights have been unlocked, this will begin the boss fight if the player is not careful or quick enough to move the bomb.
- The clean bedroom occasionally has two clean beds instead of one.
- The trapdoor in a dirty bedroom has a chance to lead to a Crawl Space.
- Occasionally, one Rag Man will spawn inside the dirty bedroom.
- There is a chance that there will only be 2 items to choose from. Additionally, items may be trapped behind rocks or spikes. Items may appear in the corners of the room instead of the center.
- All 15 waves are randomized. Each wave spawns two random bosses from the list. Each boss can only appear once per Boss Rush.
- New layouts:
- If a sack spawns for whatever reason, picking it up will start the Boss Rush. The player can still pick up one of the pedestal items.
- Black Market can no longer be accessed in The Chest and The Dark Room, and therefore cannot be used to collect more items.
Other[edit | edit source]
- When not having red hearts in Devil Room, the price of items switches to soul hearts.
- Krampus has a new attack pattern.
- The Lost is now unlocked by dying in a Sacrifice Room while holding Missing Poster.
- Sacrifice rooms were reworked to give more useful rewards.
Gallery[edit | edit source]
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Afterbirth is the placenta and fetal membranes discharged from the uterus after the birth of offspring, which might be why the title screen is bloody.
