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.
