Not to be confused with Tech.5 or Technology.

Technology 2 is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Replaces the character's right eye tears with an unlimited range piercing laser which fires continuously.
  • x0.65 Damage multiplier.
  • The laser deals 20% of Isaac's damage per tick, compounding with the damage down.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Tear delay is effectively doubled, as Isaac will do a bit of the animation to fire a right eye tear, but no tear will come out.
  • Charged shots are not affected by the effective tear delay down, as they don't use the alternative left eye/right eye fire scheme.
  • As Cain can only fire tears from his right eye, Technology 2 will replace his tears altogether, unless he has Technology TechnologyTechnology Icon.pngReplaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range. or a charged attack.
  • Because Lilith is blindfolded and relies on her Incubus IncubusIncubus Icon.pngA demonic familiar that follows Isaac and shoots tears identical to Isaac's in terms of damage, range, fire rate, and effects., the only effect gained from Technology 2 is the damage down.
  • Unlike Technology TechnologyTechnology Icon.pngReplaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range., Technology 2 doesn't override Azazel-inherent Brimstone and the laser can be fired while the Brimstone is charged.
    • Added in Afterbirth Technology wraps around Brimstone beams and does not override Azazel's Brimstone.
