Isaac's Tears is an unlockable activated item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Each tear shot by the player increases item charge by one.
  • Upon use, fires 8 tears around the player, which retain the damage, shot speed, and most special effects of the player's tears.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Tammy's Head Tammy's Head has an effect similar to Isaac's Tears, but Isaac's Tears will not benefit from tear-replacing items like Brimstone Brimstone .

  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus : The item fires normal tears, but charges very quickly as the crosshairs are moved.
