Dead Eye is a passive item added in Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac's damage increases for each successive tear hit on enemies.
    • The multiplier increases by 0.25x for each hit, going up to a maximum of 2x after 4 successive hits.
    • If a tear misses and hits nothing (wall/floor), there is a chance for the multiplier to be reset back to 1.
      • The chance is 20% for the first miss, 33% for the second miss, and 50% for the third miss and beyond.
    • As the multiplier increases, Isaac's tears glow red and increase in size.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The effect is triggered by many entities aside from enemies. Shooting flames, moving spikes and Stone Grimaces will count towards the multiplier. This can be used to preemptively increase damage before entering a new room.
    • Shooting poop will count as a miss.
    • Shooting Hosts will increase the damage multiplier even if their skull is lowered down.
  • If Dead Eye is removed by re-rolling it with D4, D100, or a 1 or 6 pip Dice Room, the damage multiplier will be removed but the tears will continue to glow red.
  • Tears do not have to be landed on only one enemy to build the multiplier; as long as they do not miss, Isaac gains damage.
  • If Isaac is shooting multiple tears at once, like with Mutant Spider, only one of them has to land for the multiplier to build up.

Tears can be fired into other tears to feed them, increasing their damage.: Main tears and burst tears will contribute to damage multiplier.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico TechniqueCollectible 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.: Damage bonus increases until it hits the max of 2x.

  • Proptosis ProptosisCollectible Proptosis Rebirth icon.pngTears start out massive with high damage, and then shrink down and become weaker over a short range.: Tears are larger and easier to hit with at low range. Additionally, if the tear fades out of existence instead of running out of range, it does not count as a miss.
