Added in Afterbirth

Explosivo is a passive item added in Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac's tears have a chance to stick to enemies and explode a few seconds afterwards, dealing 60 damage plus Isaac's tear damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Tears that stick to enemies do not deal any damage until they explode.
  • If an enemy dies or teleports with an Explosivo tear attached, the tear detaches and drops to the ground. If the detached tears touch an enemy, they will stick to that enemy and explode.
    • However, when an Explosivo tear is attached to Loki or Lokii, the tear teleports with the respective boss when the boss teleports.
  • The explosions can damage Isaac.
  • Be careful with large-sized tears: as Explosivo causes them to grow even larger, they can completely obscure enemies and their surroundings.
  • Explosivo is not affected by Luck.
