Mask of Infamy
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Mask of Infamy has two Phases. The Heart has 200 HP and the Mask the remaining 150.
Phase 1[edit | edit source]
- In the first phase, her two constituent parts act exactly like a regular-sized Mask + Heart; the Heart will generally try to move away from Isaac while the Mask charges at him if he crosses her path in any cardinal direction. During this phase, the Mask cannot be hurt or otherwise affected by virtually any item. When the Heart takes damage of any kind, the mask will chase Isaac with increased speed, interrupting a charge it may be doing.
- Unlike a regular-sized heart, the Heart of Infamy will shoot 8 bullets in all directions instead of 4 in the cardinal directions if Isaac gets too close to it.
Phase 2[edit | edit source]
- Once the Heart is dead, the Mask of Infamy will not die like a regular-sized mask does. Instead, the second phase will begin. A crack appears in the back of the Mask and can be damaged by being shot from behind. Its behavior remains the same. However, it speeds up a great deal. When damaged, it may interrupt its charge and redirect at Isaac aggressively, but less often than when the Heart is being attacked in the first phase.
Champion Versions [edit | edit source]
- Black: The Heart shoots 4 homing shots in a cross formation and is 15% larger with 25% more HP (250). The Mask behaves like the normal version during both phases and retains its original color.
