Difficulty[edit | edit source]

While Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth. and Mr. Mega Mr. MegaMr. Mega Icon.pngGives Isaac 5 bombs, and makes all dropped bombs larger, which have an increased blast radius and increased damage. make for a potent weapon, My Reflection My ReflectionMy Reflection Icon.pngGives Isaac's tears a boomerang effect, and increases range and shot speed. causes them to loop back around towards you. This can cause damage very quickly if you are not careful.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The dice room (1 pip and 6 pip) will not reroll the starting items, but will reroll the others.
  • Since you start as Lazarus, if you die, you will get one more chance. You'll respawn with only one heart, however.
  • Because of My Reflection My ReflectionMy Reflection Icon.pngGives Isaac's tears a boomerang effect, and increases range and shot speed., your range is diminished. With a little practice, however, you can learn how far away the shot will travel. Lining up your enemy with that distance will make it easier to score direct hits that won't come back to you. A great way to track when your shot will explode on enemies is by its shadow.
  • Because of Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth., all tears fired are explosive, which can prove very rewarding when used to break rocks, mushrooms, skulls and secret walls.
  • Crawl Spaces are very valuable because of the lack of Treasure Rooms. If you're confident that you won't damage yourself, take the time to destroy all rocks in every room to try and open one up. The best items you can find there are Pyromaniac PyromaniacPyromaniac Icon.pngIsaac heals 1 heart instead of taking damage from an explosive source. Adds 5 bombs., enabling you to become resistant to your own bombs and even heal yourself by them, and Added in AfterbirthHost Hat Host HatHost Hat Icon.pngA host familiar that sits on Isaac's head and has a random chance to block enemy shots and retaliate with 3 tears. Grants immunity to explosions.. AcquiringDr. Fetus Dr. FetusDr. Fetus Icon.pngTears are replaced by bombs that benefit from bomb-enhancing effects and slide for a fixed time after being fired. massively increases the damage of your fired shots and renders you immune to them (not placed bombs or other explosions), making the challenge incredibly easy.
  • Gaining followers such as a Cube of Meat Cube of MeatCube of Meat Icon.pngOrbiting familiar that blocks enemy shots and deals damage to enemies. If collected while already having one, makes the familiar evolve. Only drops from Horsemen. Similar to Ball of Bandages., Ball of Bandages Ball of BandagesBall of Bandages Icon.pngOrbiting familiar that deals damage to enemies. If collected while already having one, makes the familiar evolve. Only drops from Horsemen. Similar to Cube of Meat., or any friendly fly orbital can also help greatly. It can even take away the need to shoot any tears at all.
  • Take your time with enemies and try to lure them into a line, killing multiple enemies at once. This is an effective way of clearing a room with a large amount of enemies in it. Use the space to your advantage, especially in a 2x2 room, which can provide a lot of room to dodge enemies and plan an attack.
  • The damage of Blue Flies and Blue Spiders is modified by the increased damage associated with Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.. Consequently, obtaining an item that spawns flies can be of enormous benefit. Curse Rooms and Devil Rooms can spawn either Guppy's Head Guppy's HeadGuppy's Head Icon.png1 roomsSpawns 2-4 blue flies to damage enemies. and/or Rotten Baby Rotten BabyRotten Baby Icon.pngA familiar that spawns blue flies..
  • Moving towards the shot makes the shot faster, making it easier to hit enemies without having the shot fly back. Works better with higher speed.
  • A higher Shot Speed stat allows the tears to fly further away from the player before turning back, allowing the player to shoot enemies from further away and reduce the risk of being caught in the blast radius.
  • The Magic Fingers Magic FingersMagic Fingers Icon.pngUnlimitedFor 1 coin, damages all enemies in the room. item appears quite regularly in the shop pool. This item is modified by the damage increase from Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.. If you can buy one, you can save all your coins for it. Since you can use your shots to open Secret Rooms, you can collect quite a bit of money. Getting the Two of Diamonds can help you save up enough if you can't get enough coins from Secret Rooms. Also, Urns can drop A Quarter A QuarterA Quarter Icon.pngAdds 25 to Isaac's coin count, capping at 99. or Swallowed Penny Swallowed PennySwallowed Penny Icon.pngUpon taking damage, Isaac drops a penny..
  • Finding Envy as a sub-boss can help greatly because of it potentially dropping Shoop Da Whoop! Shoop Da Whoop!Shoop Da Whoop! Icon.png2 roomsFires a laser from Isaac's mouth.. This is arguably the best spacebar item for this specific challenge. This is due to the item's 2 room recharge use and the damage of the attack is 4X your current damage. Use it wisely to clear annoying rooms and melt bosses with it.
    • Super Envy can drop Forever Alone Forever AloneForever Alone Icon.pngSpawns a blue attack fly that orbits a long distance from Isaac., which can be pretty useful but a little tedious to kill enemies with.
      • If you get really lucky, you can get Halo of Flies Halo of FliesHalo of Flies Icon.pngSpawns two pretty fly familiars that block enemy shots and deal contact damage to enemies. from a Crawl Space, Get Super Envy in a mini boss and get it to drop Forever Alone, and get a shell game to give you the Skatole SkatoleSkatole Icon.pngAll types of fly except Boom Fly and Red Boom Fly become passive and slowly move towards Isaac. Does not prevent contact damage., all before you leave the basement, you'll get Beelzebub and have so many overpowered blue flies that you can breeze through the rest of the challenge. Adding Hive Mind can also be very useful.
  • Alternatively, you can buy Brimstone BrimstoneBrimstone 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. (Added in Afterbirth † Brimstone BrimstoneBrimstone 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. no longer overrides Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.) or 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. from a Devil Room, overriding Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.. This can be made easier by visiting Curse Rooms and using red chests which can teleport there directly or provide a Goat Head Goat HeadGoat Head Icon.pngA Devil Room / Angel Room Door will always spawn after every boss fight, excluding the first floor and floors after Utero II/Womb II..
  • Hook Worm Hook WormHook Worm Icon.pngTears move shifting left to right forming a path of right angles. +10 to Range (effective range remains about the same). and Whip Worm Whip WormWhip Worm Icon.pngIncreases shot speed by 0.5, increasing effective range. both make handling the Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth. tears easier. Hook Worm Hook WormHook Worm Icon.pngTears move shifting left to right forming a path of right angles. +10 to Range (effective range remains about the same). tears are easier to hit enemies with and easier to avoid on their way back to the player. Whip Worm Whip WormWhip Worm Icon.pngIncreases shot speed by 0.5, increasing effective range. is one of the best trinkets to find, as the tears fly very fast and low, meaning that enemies rarely move out of the way, and tears which miss usually hit the edge of the screen and explode rather than coming back to the player. Also, taking Ring Worm Ring WormRing Worm Icon.pngGives Isaac spinning shots. trinket can be another alternate, which makes Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth. tears to travel far away from Isaac with incredibly fast speed.
  • 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. is one of the best familiars for this challenge, since her damage scales with Isaac. If this item is picked up, the run can be won without using tears as it only takes Succubus a few seconds to clear out a regular-sized room. Dodging is still important in this case.
  • Added in Afterbirth Familiars that mimic your tears such as Added in AfterbirthFate's Reward Fate's RewardFate's Reward Icon.pngA blue head familiar that will follow Isaac and fire tears copying his tear effects and damage. are not great pickups for this challenge. Their shots are also Ipecac IpecacIpecac Icon.pngReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth. shots, and they fire behind the player, making the shots difficult to avoid.

Unlockable Achievements[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Devil Room at the end of the It Lives boss fight will contain regular Deals with the Devil instead of a trap door, as the challenge requires you to go to the Cathedral.
  • If you somehow manage to end up going to Sheol instead of The Cathedral (i.e. through a trapdoor in The Womb II), defeating Satan will successfully finish the challenge and erroneously unlock the achievement.
