Tear Height[edit | edit source]

Tear height is a hidden attribute that determines how far above the ground tears travel. A greater tear height effectively increases range, and a high enough tear height (around 3) can allow tears to fly over obstacles without spectral tears.

Knockback[edit | edit source]

Knockback is a mechanic that determines how far an entity is pushed back by a certain force.

There are two kinds of knockback: directional and circular.

Directional Knockback[edit | edit source]

This knockback comes from Tears, most notably Isaac's. The knockback force is determined by the speed and direction of the tear, which itself is determined by Isaac's movement and stats, for example Ring Worm Ring Worm does not increase knockback stat but does affect knockback as the tear's speed hits extremes of very fast and very slow, hitting enemies with the fastest moment of its arc applies significant knockback. (Needs research and confirmation)

Directional knockback affects most enemies, including bosses (except for stationary ones like Pin or Round Worm). Items (both trinkets and pickups) cannot be moved by tears, except for bombs placed by Isaac.

Items that Affect Directional Knockback[edit | edit source]

Passive Items[edit | edit source]

Added in Afterbirth 8 Inch Nails 359 8 Inch Nails Stick it to 'em! +1.5 Damage Up. Replaces Isaac's tears with nails, which have increased knockback.

Trinkets[edit | edit source]

Flat Worm 12 Flat Worm Blub blub! Isaac's tears take on an oblong appearance. They also push enemies back.
Added in Afterbirth Blister 77 Blister Bounce back! Increases knockback of tears.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Piercing shots from items like Sagittarius Sagittarius or Cupid's Arrow Cupid's Arrow will remove the natural knockback from tears, but direct boosts still apply. Flat Worm Flat Worm increases only natural knockback and is thus nullified.
  • Knockback from tears provides minor crowd control for homing enemies like flies or Gapers, increasing the time it takes them to reach Isaac.
  • Be wary of the natural knockback from tears when trying to dodge charging enemies (like the smaller twin of Gemini, Gurglings, and Leeches): The tears can push them off-track and towards the direction you are planning to escape to.

Circular Knockback[edit | edit source]

This knockback is a little shockwave that's emitted at a certain radius in all directions, most prominently from explosives, like Bombs. Certain farts also create a (non-harmful) knockback. Some enemies, like the Fatty, can fart, and Isaac can also do so with the Butter Bean.

Pickups (including chests) are affected by circular knockback; items, however, are not.
