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


  • 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 (30 contact damage per second) and its tears deal 3.5 damage. Tears are fired once every 2 seconds.
    • Added in Repentance The eye only shoots tears when enemies are within its line of sight, and shoots once every 1/3rd of a second when it can.
    • Removed in Repentance The eye does not block enemy shots.


  • Caution is advised when placing bombs with Bloodshot Eye, as the orbital's tears may knock the bomb elsewhere, Removed in Repentanceand Bloodshot Eye will never stop shooting.
  • Removed in RepentanceIt may not 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.

In-game Footage[]


  • 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.
