  • 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.: The beam curves towards enemies.
    • Azazel's Brimstone: The short-ranged beam can curve if Azazel gets enough range upgrades.
  • Dr. 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.: The bombs slide towards enemies.
  • Added in Afterbirth Epic Fetus Epic FetusEpic Fetus Icon.pngIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Cursor slides towards enemies.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico TechniqueThe Ludovico Technique Icon.pngInstead 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.
  • Added in AfterbirthMarked MarkedMarked Icon.pngIsaac 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.
  • Added in AfterbirthMaw of the Void Maw of the VoidMaw of the Void Icon.png+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 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.: The knife curves towards enemies.
  • Tech.5 Tech.5Tech.5 Icon.pngGrants 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.
  • Technology TechnologyTechnology Icon.pngReplaces tears with a piercing laser with unlimited range.: The laser curves towards enemies.
  • Technology 2 Technology 2Technology 2 Icon.pngDecreases damage and replaces right eye tears with a unlimited range, piercing laser which fires continuously.: The laser curves towards enemies.
  • Added in AfterbirthTech X Tech XTech X Icon.pngTears 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.
