Synergies[edit | edit source]
- Flat StoneTears bounce off the floor. Tears that hit an enemy after bouncing deal splash damage to all nearby enemies for 25% of Isaac's tear damage.: Tears will bounce against the floor through walls.
- The Forgotten: The skeleton form's charge attack can loop through walls.
- Kidney StoneRandomly while firing tears, Isaac will stop firing and turn red, where he will charge and release a lot of 'tears' in one go. In the burst of tears is a kidney stone which deals a lot of damage.: Tear barrage and stone will travel through walls.
- A Lump of CoalThe more distance tears travel, the more damage they will do.: Since walls and obstacles don't stop tears, they can continue to reach higher damages with a high range stat.
- Mom's EyeAllows Isaac to fire tears from the back of his head. / Loki's HornsGives a random chance for projectiles to fire in all 4 cardinal directions.: Additional tear paths cover rooms greatly since tears will be coming from multiple directions.
- Mom's KnifeIsaac's tears are replaced by a knife that pierces enemies, can travel through obstacles, and can hurt enemies while Isaac is holding it. Holding down the fire button before firing increases its range and power.: Causes Mom's Knife to appear on the opposite wall if thrown through one. It then returns back through the wall to Isaac.
- Mom's KnifeIsaac's tears are replaced by a knife that pierces enemies, can travel through obstacles, and can hurt enemies while Isaac is holding it. Holding down the fire button before firing increases its range and power. + BrimstoneTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period.: The barrage of knives flies across the room until it hits the wall twice.
- My ReflectionGives Isaac's tears a boomerang effect, and increases range and shot speed.: When shooting through a wall, tears speed up towards Isaac rather than returning through the original wall. With enough shot speed and range it is possible for the tears to loop twice.
- Tammy's HeadShoots 10 tears in a circle around Isaac, which retain the damage, shot speed, and special effects (such as poison) of Isaac's tears.: The tears shot by Tammy's Head will loop through walls.
- Tech XTears are replaced with laser rings that pierce through enemies and deal damage to enemies within them. Can be charged to increase the size of the ring.: Laser rings will go through walls, extra distance depending on shot speed.
- Tech XTears are replaced with laser rings that pierce through enemies and deal damage to enemies within them. Can be charged to increase the size of the ring. + IncubusA demonic familiar that follows Isaac and shoots tears identical to Isaac's in terms of damage, range, fire rate, and effects.: Incubus's laser rings cannot go through walls.
- Tractor BeamIsaac emits a beam from his face. Isaac's tears travel in the path of the beam.: Causes the tears to loop right back in front of Isaac after they go off screen.
- TrisagionTears are replaced with piercing white blasts of light.: Beams will travel through walls. No color change.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- BrimstoneTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period.: Overridden by Brimstone.
- Compound FractureIncreases range. Tears turn into bones, which shatter into 1-3 bone shards upon hitting an enemy or obstacle./ The ParasiteIsaac's tears split in two when they hit something.: Tears will only split when hitting obstacles or enemies but not walls.
- Cricket's BodyGrants -1 Tear Delay and reduces Range. When tears hit an object or deplete their range, they spawn 4 smaller tears, whose Range and Damage scale with Isaac's.: Tears will not split when they pass through walls and only when they land.
- Dr. FetusTears are replaced by bombs that benefit from bomb-enhancing effects and slide for a fixed time after being fired.: Bombs can move through obstacles.
- Epic FetusIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Overridden by Epic Fetus, stat effects apply.
- HaemolacriaTears are now fired in an arc. Upon hitting the floor, an obstacle, or an enemy, they burst into many smaller tears in all directions. Increases tear delay.: When Isaac is directly facing a wall, the main tear will burst shortly after travelling through the opposing wall. Tears are a deep purple color.
- IpecacReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.: Due to their low range, when looping, explosive shots will usually fail to land inside the room unless Isaac fires while directly facing a wall.
- LachryphagyIsaac's tears decelerate as they travel. Upon stopping or hitting an obstacle, they burst into 8 tears in all directions. Tears can be fired into other tears to feed them, increasing their damage.: Tears that are fed often burst inside of walls. Burst tears can still travel through walls.
- Lead PencilAfter every 15 tears fired, Isaac will fire a high-damage cluster of tears./ Monstro's LungIncreases damage and grants a charged shot that fires multiple tears in the same fashion as Monstro.: Due to its low range, the tear barrage will often disappear after travelling through a wall.
- The Ludovico TechniqueInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy.: When the tear is moved off screen, it loops back through the opposite wall.
- ProptosisTears start out massive with high damage, and then shrink down and become weaker over a short range.: Tears shrink while travelling through walls and often disappear before they can reappear on the other side.
- Rubber CementTears bounce off walls, enemies, and environmental objects.: Overrides Continuum.
- TechnologyReplaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range.: The laser becomes spectral.
- Technology ZeroConnects Isaac's tears with electricity that can damage enemies.: Tears will travel through walls; however, the electricity will not connect the tears while they are outside the room.
- Tiny PlanetRange up and makes shot tears revolve around Isaac until they drop.: Tears that travel through walls will travel until they reach Isaac and start orbiting him again.
