Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac's head rotates around his body and can be used to inflict contact damage similar to a Cube of Meat Cube of MeatCollectible Cube of Meat icon.pngOrbiting familiar that blocks enemy shots and deals damage to enemies. If collected while already having one, makes the familiar evolve. Only drops from Horsemen. Similar to Ball of Bandages.. Blocking tears with Isaac's head does not damage Isaac. His tears still originate from his head, so the line of fire is no longer constant while standing still.
  • +1 damage.
  • -1 tear delay (increased rate of fire)
    • Since this directly affects tear delay instead of changing the tears stat, it allows Isaac's rate of fire to go over the normal maximum rate.
    • Tear delay decreases are only noticeable when the tears stat is high.
  • The head orbital deals 7 damage per tick or 105 damage per second.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In combination with other items, can exceed three orbital cap.
  • The orbital is larger than most other orbitals, making it easier to use both offensively and defensively.
    • Despite changing size with Isaac, the orbital's hitbox does not change which can be deceptive.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • BFFS! BFFS!Collectible BFFS! icon.pngIncreases the size and damage of familiars.: Head orbital does not increase in size but it does in damage.
  • Added in AfterbirthBox of Friends Box of FriendsCollectible Box of Friends icon.png4 roomsUpon use, duplicates all of Isaac's familiars for the current room.: Adds another rotating head on each use. Each head increases damage and blocks projectiles, but does not affect tear delay. With more heads, it is easier to locate the position of the body, and Box of Friends can be used multiple times in the same room to continue gaining heads.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Added in AfterbirthDiplopia DiplopiaCollectible Diplopia icon.pngOne time useDuplicates all pickups and item pedestals in the room.: Adds another head and damage up, but only fires tears from one of them. No further tear delay down.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Duct Tape Duct TapeTrinket Duct Tape icon.pngStops Isaac's familiars from moving.: Causes tears to be fired from far below and to the right of Isaac. This causes tears to be out of bounds unless Isaac is standing in the top-left corner of the room.
  • The Forgotten: Attacks with the bone club will come from The Forgotten's body, not its head.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's KnifeCollectible Mom'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.: The knife fires from Isaac's body, not his head.
  • Added in AfterbirthTractor Beam Tractor BeamCollectible Tractor Beam icon.pngIsaac emits a beam from his face. Isaac's tears travel in the path of the beam.: Tears fire from Isaac's body, not his head.
  • Transcendence TranscendenceCollectible Transcendence icon.pngGrants flight.: Makes Isaac's body invisible, leaving only a shadow where his body is. As a result, Isaac becomes very difficult to control.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Sacrificial Altar Sacrificial AltarCollectible Sacrificial Altar icon.pngOne time useUpon use, sacrifices up to 2 familiars and spawns an item from the Devil Room Pool for each familiar sacrificed.: No effect.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If Isaac has items that visually change his hands, the effect applies to Isaac's head too. For example, when having Added in AfterbirthBursting Sack Bursting SackCollectible Bursting Sack icon.pngSpider enemies no longer target or deal contact damage to Isaac., Isaac's body and head will both hold a sack while there are two extra hands added to the head.
