Abyss Defeat Delirium as Tainted Apollyon
Added in Repentance

Abyss is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • When used, destroys all items in the room and gives Isaac a unique red locust familiar for each item destroyed.
    • These locusts loosely follow Isaac around and charge in the direction Isaac is firing until they hit an enemy or a wall, dealing Isaac's damage per tick (3 times per second).
    • The locusts may gain additional effects depending on the item destroyed.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In rooms where there are multiple items to choose from, using Abyss will give only one locust for each item choice/set.
  • Tainted Apollyon starts with this item in the consumable slot.
    • If he dies and is revived as another character (i.e. through the Ankh), that character will retain the locusts.
  • If Abyss is used while Isaac is holding an item above his head, it can still consume the item and grant a red fly.

Special Locusts[edit | edit source]

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! According to locusts.xml, 120 Volt and Jacob's Ladder locusts are supposed to cause electric arcs, and Ipecac locusts are supposed to explode. This never happens in game.
