Tech X is a passive item added in Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac's tears are replaced with ring shaped lasers.
    • Shots can be charged to increase the size of the rings.
    • Only the outer circumference of the rings will deal damage.
    • Rings pass through obstacles and enemies.
    • Rings have infinite range and will travel until they hit a wall.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The rings are similar in appearance to the combination of The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico TechniqueCollectible The Ludovico Technique icon.pngInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles.

  • The laser rings will linger for a brief moment upon touching a wall, allowing more damage to be dealt to enemies closer to walls.
  • The "R U A WIZARD?" pill effect does not work with Tech X.
  • Charging only increases size, not damage. It is useful for hard-to-hit enemies, or hitting a wide area at once, but spamming small, uncharged shots will lead to much higher damage output.
    • Added in Afterbirth † With the charge bars option enabled, the rings can be released immediately as the charge bar appears for easier gauging of maximum damage output.
