    • 20/20 + Mutant Spider: 14 extra tears.
    • The Inner Eye + Mutant Spider: 14 extra tears.
    • All three: 19 extra tears.
  • Chemical Peel Chemical PeelCollectible Chemical Peel icon.pngTears fired from left eye do increased damage.: Overridden by Monstro's Lung.
    • Added in Afterbirth † Tears have a 50% chance to be Chemical Peel tears.
  • Cursed Eye Cursed EyeCollectible Cursed Eye icon.pngGrants charged tears that can be fired in a tight burst of four. Getting hit while charging will teleport Isaac into another room.: Overridden by Monstro's Lung.
  • Added in Afterbirth Epic Fetus Epic FetusCollectible Epic Fetus icon.pngIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Launches 3-5 cursors that rotate around each other before the missiles land.
  • Added in AfterbirthEpiphora EpiphoraCollectible Epiphora icon.pngShooting in one direction increases Isaac's rate of fire until the cap is reached. As soon as Isaac changes direction or stops shooting, rate of fire is reset to its normal amount.: No effect. Tears stat is increased properly but firing cancels the effect.
  • Removed in Afterbirth † Added in AfterbirthKidney Stone Kidney StoneCollectible Kidney Stone icon.pngRandomly while firing tears, Isaac will stop firing and turn red, where he will charge and release a lot of 'tears' in one go. In the burst of tears is a kidney stone which deals a lot of damage.: If Monstro's Lung is picked up while Kidney Stone is ready to fire, charge time for Monstro's Lung will be significantly decreased.
    • Added in Afterbirth † Only stat effects from Kidney Stone apply.
  • Loki's Horns Loki's HornsCollectible Loki's Horns icon.pngGives a random chance for projectiles to fire in all 4 cardinal directions./Mom's Eye Mom's EyeCollectible Mom's Eye Rebirth icon.pngAllows Isaac to fire tears from the back of his head.: Isaac will still fire single tears in the other direction(s).
  • Added in Afterbirth The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico TechniqueCollectible The Ludovico Technique icon.pngInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy.: Tear becomes a cluster of variably sized tears spread over a small area. The tears move at the same speed when controlled but constantly move around each other.
  • Added in AfterbirthMarked MarkedCollectible Marked icon.pngIsaac will now fire tears automatically directed at a red target on the ground which is controlled by the player. This allows for a full 360 degree tear firing radius. Can be overridden by other tear modifiers such as Mom's Knife or Brimstone.: Only stat effects from Marked apply.
  • Monstro's Lung: Additional copies of the Lung add 10 tears to the barrage.
  • My Reflection My ReflectionCollectible My Reflection icon.pngGives Isaac's tears a boomerang effect, and increases range and shot speed.: Tears stay in the air much longer and consistently, allowing better reach and more focused blasts before they arc back.
  • Strange Attractor Strange AttractorStrange Attractor Rebirth Icon.pngPickups, trinkets, and monsters are magnetically attracted to Isaac's tears.: Due to the high concentration of tears enemies will be pulled into Isaac at great force, in certain cases enough force to pull enemies through rocks.
  • Added in AfterbirthTech X Tech XTech X Icon.pngTears are replaced with laser rings that pierce through enemies and deal damage to enemies within them. Can be charged to increase the size of the ring.: Fires a group of laser rings with size dependent on how long they were charged, with increased charge time.
  • Technology TechnologyTechnology Icon.pngReplaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range.: If picked up after Technology, Monstro's Lung has no effect. Technology will override Monstro's Lung with very low tear shot.
    • Added in Afterbirth Charge effect is removed and fire rate returned to normal. Extra lasers will be shot in random directions around Isaac while firing.
  • Added in AfterbirthThe Wiz The WizCollectible The Wiz icon.pngTears simultaneously fire out of both eyes diagonally, similar to the effect of the R U A Wizard? pill. Isaac's tears also travel above all obstacles.: 7-8 tears are fired at each diagonal direction instead of a full burst.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Anti-Gravity Anti-GravityCollectible Anti-Gravity icon.png-2 Tear Delay. Tears float in position until firing ceases, after which they will fly off in the direction they were shot in.: Tear delay down, which is greatly more effective due to Monstro's Lung's tear delay formula.
  • Blood Clot Blood ClotCollectible Blood Clot icon.pngIncreases damage by 1 and range by 5 for tears fired from the left eye.: All tears are larger, with increased damage (as opposed to every 2nd tear like Blood Clot alone)
    • Added in Afterbirth † Tears have a 50% chance to be Blood Clot tears.
  • Added in Afterbirth Brimstone BrimstoneCollectible Brimstone Rebirth icon.pngTears 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.: Fires 3-5 additional Brimstone lasers in random directions around Isaac. Does not increase charge time.
  • Chocolate Milk Chocolate MilkCollectible Chocolate Milk icon.pngGrants charged tears that deal greater damage when fully charged.: Reduces Isaac's tear delay by 20%, and each tear from Monstro's Lung is a charged Chocolate Milk shot, massively increasing fire rate and damage.
    • This does not apply to Lilith's Incubus; picking up Chocolate Milk will significantly reduce damage and increase charge time.
  • Added in Afterbirth Dr. Fetus Dr. FetusCollectible Dr. Fetus icon.pngTears are replaced by bombs that benefit from bomb-enhancing effects and slide for a fixed time after being fired.: Isaac spits multiple bombs but must charge to fire. Bombs detonate simultaneously.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Flat Stone Flat StoneCollectible Flat Stone icon.pngTears bounce off the floor. Tears that hit an enemy after bouncing deal splash damage to all nearby enemies for 25% of Isaac's tear damage.: All tears bounce simultaneously; effective range is greatly increased.
  • Ipecac IpecacCollectible Ipecac icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.: Isaac spews multiple Ipecac tears, with no increase in charge time.
  • Added in Afterbirth Mom's Knife Mom's KnifeCollectible Mom's Knife Rebirth icon.pngIsaac's tears are replaced by a knife that pierces enemies, can travel through obstacles, and can hurt enemies while Isaac is holding it. Holding down the fire button before firing increases its range and power.: Fires an additional cluster of 3-5 knives when at maximum charge, each dealing 2x base damage.
  • Removed in Afterbirth † Mom's Wig Mom's WigCollectible Mom's Wig icon.pngAdds a chance to spawn blue spiders when firing tears. Restores 1 red heart.: All the spiders will spawn instantly while charging his shot.
  • Added in AfterbirthTractor Beam Tractor BeamCollectible Tractor Beam icon.pngIsaac emits a beam from his face. Isaac's tears travel in the path of the beam.: All the tears follow the beam at different heights without spreading out, making it much easier for multiple tears to hit a target.
