Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Shooting tears sometimes spawns a fire similar to Red Candle, damaging enemies and destroying shots it comes into contact with.
  • Use of pooping items (Re-Lax, The Poop, etc) causes fires to appear alongside the poop.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The chance of spawning fire is not affected by luck.
