Difficulty[edit | edit source]

Your tears are huge, are blocked by Obstacles, and have a slow, small range. You must wait a set amount of time between each shot.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Your tears are huge and do high amounts of damage, meaning it is not difficult to kill an enemy if you have a clear shot.

Thanks to Cupid's Arrow, your tears do not disappear when you hit an enemy.

  • My Reflection My ReflectionMy Reflection Icon.pngGives Isaac's tears a boomerang effect, and increases range and shot speed. will shrink the range of your tear considerably, to about half a room. A little practice is more than enough to accommodate it.
  • The biggest worry you'll have in this challenge is large amounts of Obstacles. This can be mitigated by spectral tears, such as those granted by Spirit of the Night or Dead Dove. These items can be found in a Devil Room or Angel Room, respectively.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's KnifeMom's Knife 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. can be considered a high risk, high reward item to get in this challenge- while it must be fought with almost exclusively at melee range (due to its excruciatingly long charge), it deals enough damage to where it can one-hit kill almost all enemies (including bosses).
  • Guppy's Head Guppy's HeadGuppy's Head Icon.png1 roomsSpawns 2-4 blue flies to damage enemies. spawns flies that deal twice your damage, making them extremely effective weapons.
  • Added in AfterbirthSuccubus SuccubusSuccubus Icon.pngSpawns a flying familiar that bounces around the room with a black aura, dealing rapid damage to any enemies inside it. While standing in the aura, Isaac gains a 1.5x tear damage multiplier. will kill most enemies and early-game bosses instantaneously (as soon as they enter the area of its damage).
  • Chocolate Milk Chocolate MilkChocolate Milk Icon.pngGrants charged tears that deal greater damage when fully charged. will allow you to rapidly fire large shots that each still deal high damage.
