Effects

  • Isaac's tears decelerate as they travel. Upon stopping or hitting an obstacle, they burst into 8 tears in all directions.
    • Hitting an enemy will not cause them to burst.
  • Tears can be fired into other tears to feed them, increasing their damage and the damage of the burst tears.
    • If one tear is fed 5 other tears, it will immediately burst.
    • The tears will have their damage added together, with the first consumed tear giving additional damage.
    • Tears in the burst will deal half the damage the main tear would have.
  • Tear bursting can also happen from sheer shot size. With sufficiently high damage or several tear-size increasing items, the tears will burst almost immediately after firing.
