Cricket's Body is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • When Isaac's normal tears disappear (either from hitting the ground or hitting something else), they spawn 4 smaller tears.
    • Each smaller tear deals half of Isaac's normal damage.
  • Slightly increases the size of the tear.
  • -10 range
  • -1 tear delay (increased rate of fire)
    • Since this directly affects tear delay instead of changing the tears stat, it allows Isaac's rate of fire to go over the normal maximum rate.
    • Tear delay decreases are only noticeable when the tears stat is high.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Brimstone Brimstone
    Brimstone Icon.pngTears 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.
    - Brimstone overrides the splash effect of Cricket's Body.
  • Dead Onion Dead Onion
    Dead Onion Icon.pngGrants piercing and spectral tears. Increases tear size (without increasing damage) while greatly reducing range and shot speed.
    - Not recommended, as it significantly decreases effective range.
  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus
    Dr. Fetus Icon.pngTears are replaced by bombs that benefit from bomb-enhancing effects and slide a fixed range after being fired.
    - Greatly reduces range, but the bomb does not split.
    • Added in Afterbirth The bombs fired by Dr. Fetus will split into smaller bombs, much like Scatter Bombs Scatter Bombs
      Scatter Bombs Icon.pngAdds 5 bombs. Isaac's bombs explode into 2-4 tiny bombs
  • Fire Mind Fire Mind
    Fire Mind Icon.pngGrants flaming tears that deal burning damage over time. Tears have a chance to explode on impact with an enemy, which creates a fire at the location of the explosion.
    - If the main tear explodes, all splash tears will also explode.
  • Ipecac Ipecac
    Ipecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.
    - Main tear splits into four explosive splash tears. The splash tears can still damage Isaac.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's Knife
    Mom's Knife Icon.pngIsaac'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.
    - Range of the knife is significantly decreased.
  • Spoon Bender Spoon Bender
    Spoon Bender Icon.pngGrants Isaac homing tears.
    - The split tears will be more likely to hit enemies.
  • Technology Technology
    Technology Icon.pngReplaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range.
    : Tears up as expected, but no benefit from the splash effect.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique
    The Ludovico Technique Icon.pngInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy.
    - Overrides the splash effect of Cricket's Body.
  • Tiny Planet Tiny Planet
    Tiny Planet Icon.pngRange up and makes shot tears revolve around Isaac until they drop.
    - The split tears will orbit Isaac instead of spreading. Tiny Planet's large range boost also significantly prolongs the range of the split tears.
  • Added in Afterbirth Tractor Beam Tractor Beam
    Tractor Beam Icon.pngIsaac emits a beam from his face. Isaac's tears travel in the path of the beam.
    - The split tears will no longer spread, but will instead be held close to the beam, effectively tripling damage output.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

    - Passes through enemies and splits into 4 scythes each time.
  • Added in Afterbirth † Jacob's Ladder Jacob's Ladder

    - Splash shots will also be shielded.

    Monstro's Lung Icon.pngIncreases damage and grants a charged shot that fires multiple tears in the same fashion as Monstro.
    - All tears fired will splash after landing. Increased damage potential only noticed when firing into groups, due to random pattern of each tear when it splashes.
