Anti-Gravity is a passive item.


  • 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.


  • 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.
