Samson's Chains is an unlockable passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Attaches a ball and chain to Isaac's ankle that crushes rocks, blocks projectiles, and deals 5 damage per tick or about 10.7 damage per second.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The item doesn't change the Speed Attribute. Instead, whenever the chain is fully extended the ball will have to be dragged, which causes Isaac to slow down slightly.
  • Cannot be used to destroy Secret Rooms.

In-game Footage[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item references the biblical story of Samson, who was chained upon losing his strength.
  • This item is a reference to the Spelunky ball and chain, which also slows the user, destroys blocks, and can be used against enemies.
