Epic Fetus is a Special unlockable passive item.

Effects

  • Isaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.
    • Missiles deal 20 times Isaac's damage.

Notes

  • Missiles benefit from most bomb-enhancing effects.
  • Epic Fetus overrides most items in the game and has the highest priority of all of them, over Brimstone and Mom's Knife.
  • On PC, using the mouse and keyboard when obtaining this item can be helpful due to the ability to precisely target a specific area in the room, avoiding the sensitivity of a joystick or the limited directions of the arrow keys.

In-game Footage

Trivia

  • In the original game it was possible to control the crosshair with the mouse. This was removed in Rebirth.
    • Mouse control can however be re-enabled by editing the options.ini file in C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\Binding of Isaac Afterbirth/Rebirth and changing the line MouseControl=0 into MouseControl=1. Also useful for The Ludovico Technique.
  • This item is used in Challenge #11 (Glass Cannon).
