Mega Blast is a secret unlockable activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Upon use, Isaac fires a giant, incredibly powerful blood laser, similar to the one used by Mega Satan, for 15 seconds.
    • The beam deals Isaac's current damage multiplied by 5 per tick.
    • The beam has enough power to push Isaac backwards while being fired, and will last between rooms, and across multiple floors.
    • The beam has spectral and piercing effects.
    • The beam can be moved while firing in many angles diagonally.
    • While Mega Blast is being fired, Isaac cannot:
    • The laser extinguishes fires, detonates TNT, and destroys poop.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Picking up a Little Battery with this item will not fully charge it. Instead, it will add 3 to its charge, meaning that 4 batteries are required to fully recharge the item.
  • Using a 48 Hour Energy pill with this item will fully charge it.
  • Mega Blast has an 80% decreased item pool weight, making it less likely to appear than other collectibles.
  • In order to unlock Mega Blast, Mega Satan must be defeated with all characters including secret characters (The Lost and Keeper).
