Cricket's Body is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • When Isaac's normal tears disappear (either from hitting the ground or hitting something else), they spawn 4 smaller tears.
    • Each smaller tear deals half of Isaac's normal damage.
  • Tear size multiplier: 1.2x.
    • Split tears are scaled down by 0.6x from the main ones, ignoring damage based size reduction.
  • -10 range
  • -1 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]

  • Any status effect-carrying tears: split tears will carry the same status effect.
  • If Isaac has less than 10 range, the split tears appear but cannot cause damage before hitting the floor.
