Anti-Gravity is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Holding the fire buttons causes tears to hover in midair. When released, the tears will all shoot in the direction they were originally fired.
    • If the fire buttons are not released, the tears will fire on their own after a while.
  • -2 tear delay (increased rate of fire)
    • Since this directly affects tear delay instead of changing the tears stat, it allows Isaac's rate of fire to go over the normal maximum rate.
    • Tear delay decreases are more noticeable and are a greater increase to DPS when the tears stat is high.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Gravitational effects, such as Mega Fatty's inhalation or a Gaping Maw will pull floating tears toward them.
  • The range attribute only affects the lifespan of the tears after they have been released.
  • Hovering tears can damage monsters like Knights or Mask of Infamy from the front, even if they don't have the piercing effect.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Added in Afterbirth † The Forgotten: Each swing of his club creates an additional hitbox in front of him that lasts for about a second before proceeding forward and disappearing. The club throw is unaffected.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: Tears will float in midair, making them easier to feed. Burst tears will also float in midair before moving.
  • 15►Proptosis Proptosis: The tears will not decrease in size or damage until they start moving, making this excellent against enemies that chase Isaac.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Technology Zero Technology Zero: All of the tears fired are connected by electricity, creating a series of electric fences.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Bob's Rotten Head Bob's Rotten Head: Continues to hover in the air while the fire button is pressed after launching it.
  • 15►Brimstone Brimstone: A red mist expands and then contracts, doing contact damage to any enemy that touches it. It then fires the original Brimstone shot before disappearing. It allows a new shot to be charged up immediately after firing without interrupting the first shot. It does not increase the range of Azazel's Brimstone beam.
    • Brimstone + Conjoined: Fires a single laser instead of a triple laser.
  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: Overrides Anti-Gravity.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Compound Fracture Compound Fracture/15►Cricket's Body Cricket's Body/Added in Afterbirth †15►Haemolacria Haemolacria/15►The Parasite The Parasite: Burst tears will not hover even if a fire button is held.
  • 15►Cursed Eye Cursed Eye: Only tear delay down applies.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►Diplopia Diplopia: No effect; -2 tears delay does not stack.
  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Only tear delay down applies.
  • 15►Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Only tear delay down applies.

  • Added in Repentance15►Eye of the Occult Eye of the Occult: Only tear delay down applies.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►Kidney Stone Kidney Stone: When the Kidney Stone effect is activated, the tear barrage will hover until released. The stone will not hover and will travel regardless.
  • 15►The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: Only tear delay down applies.
  • 15►A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal: Despite the visual increase in size, damage still only increases based on the distance traveled.

  • Added in Afterbirth15►Marked Marked: Only tear delay down applies.
  • 15►Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: Only tear delay down applies.

  • Added in Afterbirth15►Multidimensional Baby Multidimensional Baby: Multidimensional Baby will travel the same path as the Anti-Gravity tears, easily doubling any stationary shots. Any moving tears that hit it will produce a normal moving copy, however stationary tears will spawn a copy that will eventually fall to the ground even after the direction is released.
    • Added in Afterbirth † Stationary duplicated tears will release normally.
  • 15►My Reflection My Reflection: Combines both effects. Tears will home in on Isaac instead of remaining stationary, and releasing the attack buttons will launch the tears from their position as usual.
