Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Added in  AfterbirthIncubus IncubusIncubus Icon.pngA demonic familiar that follows Isaac and shoots tears identical to Isaac's in terms of damage, range, fire rate, and effects.: Does not affect shot speed or tear size but still gives the piercing effect.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Dr. Fetus Dr. FetusDr. Fetus Icon.pngTears are replaced by bombs that benefit from bomb-enhancing effects and slide for a fixed time after being fired.: Not recommended. Bombs are slow to fire and will pass through enemies, making it far more difficult to hit them with explosions.
  • Epic Fetus Epic FetusEpic Fetus Icon.pngIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Overrides Dead Onion, although stat effects apply.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico TechniqueThe 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.: Not recommended. Tear moves very slowly making it hard to kill mobile enemies.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's KnifeMom's Knife Rebirth 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.: Overrides Dead Onion.
  • Monstro's Lung Monstro's LungMonstro's Lung Icon.pngIncreases damage and grants a charged shot that fires multiple tears in the same fashion as Monstro.: Fires a barrage of large tears that disappear at close range. Spectral and piercing effect make it very effective at close range.
  • My Reflection My ReflectionMy Reflection Icon.pngGives Isaac's tears a boomerang effect, and increases range and shot speed.: Not recommended. Tears will travel a very short distance before they return to Isaac and eventually disappear.
  • Proptosis ProptosisProptosis Rebirth Icon.pngTears start out massive with high damage, and then shrink down and become weaker over a short range.: Not recommended. While tears do massive damage at short range, it makes it a lot easier to be damaged by explosive enemies or enemies that do contact damage.
  • Rubber Cement Rubber CementRubber Cement Icon.pngTears bounce off walls, enemies, and environmental objects.: Edges of tears retain both piercing and spectral effects, however the center of the tear will lose them and bounce.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Sulfuric Acid Sulfuric AcidSulfuric Acid Icon.pngIncreases damage. Adds a chance to fire acidic tears which can destroy obstacles.: Not recommended. Acid Tears no longer impact objects and can no longer open secret rooms.
