Isaac's tears have a chance to stick to enemies and explode.


"Sticky bomb shot!"


  • Isaac's tears have a chance to stick to enemies and explode a few seconds afterward, dealing 60 damage plus Isaac's tear damage.


  • Cricket's Body
    - The explosion results in split Explosivo shots being generated. If the target survives, they're likely to immediately stick again.
  • Godhead
    - The tear keeps its damaging aura while attached to the enemy, the aura grows as the tear does until it explodes. The aura can damage only enemies other than the one the tear is stuck to, however.
  • Haemolacria
    - Main tears and burst tears can have the Explosivo effect. If a main tear has the Explosivo effect, it will burst with its explosion, the burst tears dealing damage based off the explosion damage.
  • Ipecac
    - Sticky shots will explode even if they fall to the floor after the initial target dies.
  • Lachryphagy
    - Explosivo tears can be fed and will burst into Explosivo tears; however, if normal tears are fed first, Explosivo fed to the normal tears will not give the tear the Explosivo effect.
  • Lost Contact
    - Tears that stick to enemies can still block/be destroyed by enemy shots.
  • Mr. Mega
    - Increases the damage of Explosivo's explosions to 110.
  • Mysterious Liquid
    - Leaves a pool of green creep on the floor.
  • Soy Milk
    - The 60 point explosion damage bonus is not affected by Soy Milk's penalty, combining efficiently with the high fire rate.
  • Spirit Sword
    - The fired projectile can take on Explosivo's effects. The sword swing can leave behind Explosivo tears.
  • Technology Zero
    - Stuck tears will still generate arcs of electricity. Multiple tears stuck to a single enemy can cause very rapid damage.
