Soy Milk is a passive item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Reduces tear delay by the formula: (delay / 4) - 2
  • x0.2 damage multiplier

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • At base tear rate, Soy Milk sets the player's tear delay to the game's minimum value of 1, for 15 tears per second. This is much lower than the normal minimum tear delay; see the tear delay explanation page.
  • At base damage, Soy Milk is a very small DPS up (barely noticeable) if the player hits every single shot. With nearly any tears up at all, Soy Milk becomes a DPS down. The more tears per second before obtaining Soy Milk, the greater the decrease in DPS.
  • Soy Milk's damage down stat also significantly decreases tear size.
  • The endless stream of tears effectively increases directional knockback.
  • Due to the high fire rate, items that cause tears to inflict status effects activate more frequently.
  • Removed in Afterbirth Soy Milk is a special item.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 20/20 20/20: The shot pattern may help in controlling enemy knockback, in addition to dealing up to double damage.
  • Blood Clot Blood Clot: +1 damage bonus on Blood Clot tears is unaffected by the damage penalty.
  • Chemical Peel Chemical Peel: +2 damage bonus on Chemical Peel tears is unaffected by the damage penalty.
  • Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: Shots cannot be charged, but Isaac gains a flat +1 damage up after the Soy Milk penalty.
  • Added in AfterbirthExplosivo Explosivo: Despite the tiny appearance of the bomb tears, the explosions will do normal explosion damage. Due to the massive fire rate, many bombs can be applied in extremely quick succession, decimating anything after a short delay.
  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Allows for incredibly fast firing medium damage bombs.
  • Ipecac Ipecac: The very fast rate of fire fills the screen with low damage explosions.
  • Libra Libra: Decreases fire rate slightly, but massively increases damage, range, and speed. Tear height is also massively increased, meaning tears can hit enemies through obstacles without spectral effect.
  • Lost Contact Lost Contact: Extremely effective at blocking shots.
  • A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal: Significantly increases tear damage as they get further away. Even with only this synergy, individual tear damage appears to approach starting tear damage when firing over longer distances.
  • Mysterious Liquid Mysterious Liquid: Each shot creates creep that deals reasonable damage but stacks with every shot, causing hefty damage.
  • Piercing tears: Causes tears to affect enemy movement less for better accuracy, though also removes the advantage of rapidly knocking back enemies.
  • Pisces Pisces: Greatly increases knockback, allowing tears to pin enemies against walls.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Technology Zero Technology Zero: The near-constant stream of tears will have electricity chained between them, providing an electrical net of damage making it almost impossible to not hit an enemy. This can greatly help offset the lowered damage by increasing the number of hits.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Damage of missiles will be decreased accordingly, but unlike normal tears, there is still a fixed timed delay between firing missiles
  • Proptosis Proptosis: The low-damage tears disappear extremely quickly, greatly reducing range.
  • Technology 2 Technology 2: Half of the Soy Milk tears are replaced by constant laser, but damage down compounds.
