Waka Waka is Challenge #17. You start off with Strange Attractor Strange Attractor and Anti-Gravity Anti-Gravity . Your goal is to defeat Mom. This Challenge is available by default.

Difficulty[edit | edit source]

Your shots do not travel right away. They stay in place. With the added magnetic property, this can cause enemies to slingshot through your tears to hit you.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • You can lay a trail of tears that draws enemies into each tear. However, if done carelessly, momentum will often carry them past your tears into you. Make sure there is a safe distance between you and the enemy before firing.
  • Try to be accurate - if your tears hit the enemy and disappear, the side-effects of Strange Attractor is reduced, whereas if they miss, they may pull other enemies towards you, increasing the risk of damage.
  • Enemies that chase you such as Lust or Globins are particularly dangerous as firing carelessly will pull them towards you. Maintain a safe distance, fire, run away, and repeat.
  • Items that are behind gaps or spikes can be pulled towards you by firing tears past them.
  • Tammy's Head Tammy's Head is especially useful for this challenge, as it creates a stationary ball of ten highly damaging tears that have a very strong magnetic pull. The one room charge time allows you to clear rooms with much greater ease than by using the common method of attack with this challenge.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's Knife is a useful pickup in this challenge. It retains the magnetic property of Strange Attractor Strange Attractor , but can be fired as it normally would, making this challenge for the most part a normal run with the item.
  • If you are having difficulty completing this challenge, a good tactic is to quickly tap the arrow keys in order to fire tears normally, and mostly avoid the effects of Anti-Gravity Anti-Gravity .

Reward[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Waka Waka is the sound Pac-Man makes when eating pellets, and the enemies in this challenge follow Isaac's trail of floating tears in a similar way.
