Synergies[edit | edit source]
For any item interactions check the corresponding sections in the article Spoon Bender.
- BrimstoneTears 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.: The beam curves towards enemies.
- Azazel's Brimstone: The short-ranged beam can curve if Azazel gets enough range upgrades.
- Dr. FetusTears are replaced by bombs that benefit from bomb-enhancing effects and slide a fixed range after being fired.: The bombs slide towards enemies.
- Epic FetusIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Cursor slides towards enemies.
- MarkedIsaac will now fire tears automatically directed at a red target on the ground which is controlled by the player. This allows for a full 360 degree tear firing radius. Can be overridden by other tear modifiers such as Mom's Knife or Brimstone.: Tears will travel in the direction of the cross-hairs until close enough to home in on an enemy.
- Maw of the Void+1.0 Damage Up. After continuously firing tears for 2.5 seconds, a red cross appears on Isaac's head that, upon releasing the fire button, creates a black ring that rapidly deals damage equal to Isaac's tear damage to any enemies in contact with it.: The Brimstone ring curves towards enemies.
- Mom's KnifeIsaac'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.: The knife curves towards enemies.
- Tech.5Grants a unlimited range piercing laser with random rate of fire that does not replace tears. The laser might occasionally fire with the effect of a random item or trinket, such as Hook Worm, Spoon Bender or Tiny Planet.: The laser curves towards enemies.
- TechnologyReplaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range.: The laser curves towards enemies.
- Technology 2Decreases damage and replaces right eye tears with a unlimited range, piercing laser which fires continuously.: The laser curves towards enemies.
- Tech XTears are replaced with laser rings that pierce through enemies and deal damage to enemies within them. Can be charged to increase the size of the ring.: The laser rings curve towards enemies, resulting in longer contact time and substantial damage increase per ring.
- The Ludovico TechniqueInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy.: The tear will attempt to home towards a single target, even if it hits a different enemy on its way there, making it difficult to control.
