Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Added in Afterbirth †Flat Stone Flat Stone: Tears will bounce against the floor through walls.
  • Added in Afterbirth † The Forgotten: The skeleton form's charge attack can loop through walls.
  • Kidney Stone Kidney Stone: Tear barrage and stone will travel through walls.
  • A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal: Tears will continually gain damage when passing through walls.
  • Mom's Eye Mom's Eye / Loki's Horns Loki's Horns: Additional tear paths cover rooms greatly since tears will be coming from multiple directions.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: Causes Mom's Knife to appear on the opposite wall if thrown through one. It then returns through the wall to Isaac.
  • My Reflection My Reflection: When shooting through a wall, tears speed up towards Isaac rather than returning through the original wall. With enough shot speed and range the tears can loop twice.
  • Tech X Tech X: Laser rings will go through walls, extra distance depending on shot speed.
  • Tractor Beam Tractor Beam: Causes the tears to loop right back in front of Isaac after they go offscreen.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Trisagion Trisagion: Beams will travel through walls.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Bombs can move through obstacles.
  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Overridden by Epic Fetus, stat effects apply.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Haemolacria Haemolacria: When Isaac is directly facing a wall, the main tear will burst shortly after traveling through the opposing wall. Tears are a deep purple color.

  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: When the tear is moved offscreen, it loops back through the opposite wall.
  • Proptosis Proptosis: Tears shrink while traveling through walls and often disappear before they can reappear on the other side.
  • Rubber Cement Rubber Cement: Overrides Continuum.
  • Technology Technology: The laser becomes spectral.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Technology Zero Technology Zero: Tears will travel through walls; however, the electricity will not connect the tears while they are outside the room.
