Gurdy is a boss found in The Caves The Caves and the Added in Afterbirth Flooded Caves Flooded Caves. She is a completely stationary large mound of organs and flesh with a single face partially missing as well as two arms which often signal her various attacks.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Gurdy is completely stationary and will always appear in the upper middle of the room. She has three attacks:

  • Gurdy can duck down into her body and emerge from the side facing Isaac, firing 5 blood shots in a spread-out manner.
  • Gurdy can spawn either a Pooter near herself, or two Attack Flies behind her.
    • Spawned Attack Flies are weaker than normal, with only about 3 health.
  • Gurdy can summon two Boils in front of her.

Champion Versions Needs to be unlocked[edit | edit source]

  • Dark Greyish Green: 11% larger and does not use her blood shot attack, but instead summons monsters at a faster rate.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Gurdy will sometimes be accompanied by Attack Flies to the left and right of her and two Boils in the bottom corners of the room. She might also be accompanied by three Boils behind her.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If Gurdy is accompanied by other enemies, The first thing to keep in mind is to clear at least one corner of the room before attacking Gurdy herself.
  • After clearing the area, maintain a constant back and forth motion to the side and in front of Gurdy, using 1/4 of the screen. By doing this, you can easily dodge the spread shot Gurdy fires, as she will not adjust her angle once she retreats into herself before firing.
  • You can avoid Gurdy's shots altogether by simply standing behind her. However, you will not be able to easily see the flies she spawns, so you may be hit by them.
