Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Adds a chance to shoot petrifying tears, which stop enemies in place and prevent them from moving or attacking.
  • +0.25 Range up (Removed in Afterbirth not applied until the next time Isaac's range stat is updated).
  • +0.5 Tear Height (Removed in Afterbirth not applied until the next time Isaac's tear height is updated).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The activation chance depends on the luck stat, and goes up to around 50% with approximately 20 luck.
  • Petrifying a Heart also freezes the Mask bound to it.
  • Petrifying an enemy with a weak zone (Scolex or Carrion Queen) will make the enemy take damage anywhere while it is petrified, making combat significantly easier.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! Enemies with multiple segments (Chub, Pin, etc.) can be petrified and have their segments destroyed individually, but continue to live with any remaining health. This can be problematic at times especially with Carrion Queen, as you could destroy the "tail" or center body segment when Carrion Queen is petrified, thus making you have to petrify her again, or use bombs to do damage.
