Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Increases all stats while Isaac's active item is completely uncharged:
    • +0.50 speed
    • +1.50 range
    • +0.40 tears
    • +0.30 shot speed
    • +1.5 damage
    • +2 luck

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Removed in Repentance If Isaac's active item has no charge bar and can used anytime, like 15►How to Jump How to Jump, Dim Bulb's effects will be permanent.
  • Items that charge automatically will get only a tiny moment of benefit from the Dim Bulb before they gain more charge again.
  • Dim Bulb is more than twice as powerful as Vibrant Bulb Vibrant Bulb; however, its effects are active less frequently.
  • Dim Bulb has no effect when no active item is held.
  • If the player has 2 items (via 15►Schoolbag Schoolbag), only 1 of them needs to be empty to receive the benefits.
    • This appears to have been patched out on PC. However, if one of your two active items has no charge bar (e.g. 15►Remote Detonator Remote Detonator), you can swap to it after using the charged item to preserve the Bulb's effect.
  • Added in Repentance The effect remains active with Bethany's soul charges.
