Added in Afterbirth

Epiphora is a passive item added in Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Tear delay gradually decreases as the player shoots in one direction. Accuracy also decreases as the fire rate increases.
    • At max "charge", it will reduce tear delay by half, rounding down.
  • Rate of fire returns to its original value if Isaac stops firing, changes firing directions, uses an active item, or is hit.
    • Added in Afterbirth † Being hit, changing rooms, and using items no longer reset the Epiphora bonus.
      • During the delay when transitioning between rooms, picking up an item, or using an active item, it's possible to change firing direction without resetting the bonus.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Epiphora technically works with items that require a charge (such as 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.) but requires releasing the key or button, causing players to lose the effect.
