(in Afterbirth † and Repentance)
This article is about the item. For the enemy, see Bloodshot Eye (Enemy).

Bloodshot Eye is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †.

Effect[ | ]

  • Summons an orbital familiar eye. This eye shoots in the direction it faces at the time and does contact damage.
    • The eye deals 2 contact damage per tick or 30 contact damage per second ((in Repentance) 20 damage per second) and its tears deal 3.5 damage. Tears are fired once every 2 seconds.
      • (in Repentance) The eye's only shoots tears when enemies are within its line of sight, and shoots once every 1/3rd of a second when it can.
    • (except in Repentance) Unlike other orbitals, the eye does not block enemy shots.

Notes[ | ]

  • Caution is advised when placing BombBombs with Bloodshot Eye, as the orbital's tears may knock the bomb elsewhere, (except in Repentance)and Bloodshot Eye will never stop shooting.
  • (except in Repentance)It may not always be a good idea to pick up Bloodshot Eye if Isaac has one or more Pretty Flies as orbitals, as Bloodshot Eye can override Pretty Flies without giving protection from enemy shots.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Bloodshot Eye was originally an unofficial item which was supposed to showcase the modding capabilities of Afterbirth+ in the PAX 2016 livestream. However, all items included in the demo were later added to the final game.
