Difficulty[edit | edit source]

  • As a result of the blindfolded status, tears cannot be used, and Isaac must rely heavily on the erratic movement of Guppy's Hair Ball to deal damage.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Because Isaac starts with 3 Guppy items, he begins the challenge as Guppy, which grants flight (a good way of avoiding damage), and creates Blue Flies when dealing damage with Guppy's Hair Ball, familiars, or a co-op baby, which act as a secondary source of damage.
  • Guppy's Hair Ball is very difficult to control. It would be wise to spend the first few attempts at the challenge practicing with it before a real attempt at completing the challenge is made.
    • Items that increase movement speed can make Guppy's Hair Ball somewhat easier to use. The extra speed will allow for more precise control while also indirectly increasing the range at which the Hair Ball can safely be swung.
  • Buying 9 Volt 9 VoltCollectible 9 Volt icon.pngReduces the charge of any Activated Items by 1. Any 1 charge items instead have timed recharges. from a shop can allow more blue flies to be spawned by Guppy's Head.
    • The Battery The BatteryThe Battery Icon.pngActivated Items can be "overcharged" to allow for an additional use. and Added in AfterbirthCar Battery Car BatteryCar Battery Icon.pngCauses Isaac's activated item to activate twice on each use. can also increase Guppy's Head's effectiveness.
  • BFFS! BFFS!BFFS! Icon.pngIncreases the size and damage of familiars. is a noteworthy item due to its effects on Guppy's Hair Ball.
  • Orbitals, such as Cube of Meat Cube of MeatCube of Meat Icon.pngOrbiting familiar that blocks enemy shots and deals damage to enemies.

Similar to Ball of Bandages. and Sacrificial Dagger Sacrificial DaggerSacrificial Dagger Rebirth Icon.pngDagger orbits Isaac, dealing very high damage., can be more effective than Guppy's Hair Ball at blocking and dealing damage.
  • Hive Mind Hive MindHive Mind Icon.pngIncreases the size of blue spiders and blue flies and doubles the amount of damage they deal. greatly increases the damage of blue flies.
  • Red Candle Red CandleRed Candle Icon.png4 secondsThrows a persistent flame that deals high damage and diminishes as it damages enemies or blocks shots. or The Candle The CandleThe Candle Icon.png4 secondsThrows out a blue flame that can pass over gaps (but not through rocks). The flame damages anything in its path. can be useful alternatives to Guppy's Head, depending on the situation.
  • Bob's Brain Bob's BrainBob's Brain Icon.pngSpawns a familiar that charges forward when shooting tears and explodes upon contact with an enemy, damaging and poisoning them. The familiar respawns after a few seconds., while dangerous, can serve as a reliable alternative to bombs.
