Added in Afterbirth †

Haemolacria is an unlockable passive item added in Booster Pack #4.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Tears are fired in an arc. Upon hitting the floor, an obstacle, or an enemy they burst into many smaller tears in all directions.
  • Tears down - (Delay * 2) + 10
  • Increases damage by about 31%.
    • The scattered tears deal random damage that is around 50-80% of the main tear.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The shot speed stat functions oddly for Haemolacria.
    • The actual velocity of the main shot is not changed, but high shot speed lowers the arc and thus range, whereas low shot speed increases it.
    • The split tears are affected normally by shot speed.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

Bugs[edit | edit source]
