Difficulty[edit | edit source]
With a powerful set of items to start with, this is a rather easy challenge after getting used to Mom's Knife. The most difficult challenge here is, of course, defeating Mega Satan.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
- Since Isaac will likely be stuck with Mom's Knife as his primary method of attacking, finding powerful items and synergies will prove challenging.
- Entering any Angel/Devil Room that spawns might yield items that synergize with Mom's Knife (such as GodheadIncreases damage and range while reducing tears and shot speed. Grants homing tears and tears gain a damaging halo., Holy LightIsaac has a random chance to fire a Holy tear, which, when it hits an enemy, will spawn a Crack the Sky-style light beam on the same enemy, dealing damage. or BrimstoneTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period.).
- Though risky, the Boss Rush and Blue Womb will both provide additional chances at good items.
- As a result of beginning the challenge with both Key Pieces, Angel Rooms are much more likely to appear than normal. Due to Angel Room items being generally more useful, it is advised to avoid Devil Rooms altogether.
- It is somewhat easier to beat this challenge with The PolaroidIf the character has half a red heart or no red hearts after taking damage, it triggers the Book of Shadows effect, creating a shield that nullifies all types of damage for 5 seconds. Also allows entrance into The Chest. (which doesn't appear after the Mom fight in Afterbirth +) than it is with The NegativeIf the character has half a red heart or no red hearts after taking damage, it triggers The Necronomicon effect, damaging all enemies in the room. Also allows entrance into the Dark Room., as Isaac is an easier fight than Satan in this challenge. Furthermore, The Chest can provide many chances at useful items that the Dark Room does not.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Aside from beating ??? or The Lamb for the first time, the player must also unlock all starter items in the challenge. (Access to Key Pieces, Mom's Knife, etc.)
- Despite being forced to take The Negative, the Cathedral can still be accessed; however, once Isaac is defeated and the chest is entered, the run will simply end and will not count as a completion of the challenge.
- If the player starts the challenge before The Polaroid and The Negative have been unlocked (using I AM ERROR, a sacrifice room, We Need To Go Deeper!, etc.) then the player will need to repeat said method or use another method to advance to Mega Satan.
Reward[edit | edit source]
