Notes[ | ]

Synergies[ | ]

  • Any item that grants multiple shots like Collectible Loki's Horns iconLoki's Horns and Collectible Mom's Eye iconMom's Eye are good items to take.
  • (in Repentance) Character Azazel iconAzazel/Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone/Collectible Revelation iconRevelation/ Character Tainted Azazel iconTainted Azazel: The laser continues behind Isaac and back once again, potentially hitting enemies twice in one blast.
  • (except in Repentance)Collectible Bob's Rotten Head iconBob's Rotten Head: Bob's Rotten Head can now travel through walls and appear out of the opposite wall, similar to a portal-type mechanic.
    • (in Repentance) No longer travels through the wall; instead he bounces off it, like with Collectible Rubber Cement iconRubber Cement, and then travels for the rest of its duration and then explodes.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Character The Forgotten iconThe Forgotten: The skeleton form's charge attack can loop through walls.
  • Collectible A Lump of Coal iconA Lump of Coal: Tears will continually gain damage when passing through walls.
  • Collectible Mom's Knife iconMom's Knife: Causes Mom's Knife to appear on the opposite wall if thrown through one. It then returns through the wall to Isaac.
    • Mom's Knife + Brimstone: The barrage of knives flies across the room until it hits the wall twice.
  • Collectible My Reflection iconMy Reflection: When shooting through a wall, tears speed up towards Isaac rather than returning through the original wall. With enough shot speed and range the tears can loop twice.
  • Collectible Tech X iconTech X: Laser rings will go through walls, extra distance depending on shot speed.
    • Tech X + Collectible Incubus iconIncubus: Incubus's laser rings cannot go through walls. This applies to Character Lilith iconLilith too.
    • (in Repentance):Tech X + Collectible Incubus iconIncubus: Laser rings travel through walls and continue on the other side of the room.
  • Collectible Tractor Beam iconTractor Beam: Causes the tears to loop right back in front of Isaac after they go offscreen.

Interactions[ | ]

  • (except in Repentance) (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Compound Fracture iconCompound Fracture/Collectible The Parasite iconThe Parasite: Tears will only split when hitting obstacles or enemies but not walls.

  • Collectible Dr. Fetus iconDr. Fetus: Bombs cannot go through walls, but are spectral.
  • Collectible Epic Fetus iconEpic Fetus/Collectible Rubber Cement iconRubber Cement: Overrides Continuum, stat effects apply.
  • Collectible The Ludovico Technique iconThe Ludovico Technique: When the tear is moved offscreen, it loops back through the opposite wall.

  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Technology Zero iconTechnology Zero: Tears will travel through walls; however, the electricity will not connect the tears while they are outside the room. Once tears have passed through walls, the electric arcs connect very erratically to other tears, limiting the efficiency of the combination.
  • Collectible Tiny Planet iconTiny Planet: Tears that travel through walls will travel until they reach Isaac and start orbiting him again.
