Tech X is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effect[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 Technique and Technology Technology.
  • 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.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 20/20 20/20: Fires two Tech X rings instead of one.
  • Brimstone Brimstone: Fires a brimstone circle instead of a tech circle.
    • Azazel: Picking up Brimstone will still override Tech X. When you pick up Tech X as Azazel with his inherited Brimstone, Tech X does nothing at all.
      • Added in Afterbirth † As Azazel, Brimstone no longer overrides Tech X, instead Tech X overrides Azazel's Brimstone. This works quite well with Azazel's good initial damage stat and also negates his initial range penalty.
    • Brimstone + Technology Technology: The damage boost from Brimstone+Technology is lost, but the laser fires while charging the brimstone ring.
  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Overrides the charging effect, but shoots a laser ring with a bomb in the middle.
  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Each missile shoots 10 laser beams like from Technology Technology in each direction, similar to Tammy's Head.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Haemolacria Haemolacria: Haemolacria tears will burst into 3-5 Tech X rings on impact.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: Simultaneously fires the knife and laser ring(s).
  • Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung: Extra laser rings with different sizes depending on how long Isaac charges it are fired, will increase charge time.
  • Spoon Bender Spoon Bender: While the rings won't home in on enemies, they will bend inwards to hit enemies within each ring, resulting in a substantial damage area increase.
  • Strange Attractor Strange Attractor: Magnetic effect pulls pickups and objects to the edge of the ring, increasing accuracy.
  • Technology Technology/Tech.5 Tech.5: Equips both laser systems.
  • Wiggle Worm Wiggle Worm: Replaces the outer laser ring with a star-shaped oval, slightly increasing its area of effect.

  • Added in Afterbirth †Little Horn Little Horn: Overridden by Tech X.

Bugs[edit | edit source]
