Tough Love is a passive item.
Effect[edit | edit source]
- Adds a chance to shoot a tooth instead of a tear, which deals greater damage (x3.2) than regular tears.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The chance to fire a tooth depends on the luck stat. At base luck (0), the chance is 10%. It goes up to 100% at 9 luck (around 10% more chance per luck up).
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- 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.: Overridden by Brimstone.
- Occasionally fires Brimstone beam with damage multiplier of Tough Love.
- Fire MindGrants flaming tears that deal burning damage over time. Tears have a chance to explode on impact with an enemy, which creates a fire at the location of the explosion.: Adds flaming effect to the teeth, but without the chance of exploding.
- 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.: Overridden by Mom's Knife.
Synergies[edit | edit source]
