Added in Repentance


Eye of the Occult is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac's tears are now controlled mid-flight with tear controls instead of moving on their own, similarly to the controlled tear given by 15►The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique.
  • +1 damage.
  • +7.5 range.
  • -0.16 shot speed.
  • This item belongs to the Leviathan set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into Leviathan.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The flight duration of tears is determined by the range stat.
  • Items which use charge mechanics (like 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk, 15►Cursed Eye Cursed Eye or 15►Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung) require precise input to be able to both charge the shot and then move the tears, making it significantly harder to control.
    • Beams and lasers like 15►Brimstone Brimstone are unaffected by this.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

Synergies which cause auto-fire can have the firing stopped by pressing the "drop" key or button. Pressing Fire will resume auto-firing.

  • 15►Brimstone Brimstone: Makes a purple homing beam. The brimstone laser is automatically fired at a controllable cross-hair target after pressing the fire key each room.
    • Azazel Azazel: Like Brimstone, except that his short beam becomes a lasso. The loop starts where the beam would normally end and extends out to the cross-hair.
    • 15►Incubus Incubus: Will fire a straight laser towards the crosshair.
  • 15►Eye Sore Eye Sore/15►Loki's Horns Loki's Horns/15►Mom's Eye Mom's Eye/15►The Wiz The Wiz / Conjoined: Extra tears fly in the same direction.
  • 15►Isaac's Tears Isaac's Tears/15►Tammy's Head Tammy's Head/15►Varicose Veins Varicose Veins: Generates a halo of tears that don't break their shape.
  • 15►The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: While holding a direction, the Ludovico tear will constantly shoot out controllable tears in random directions. The air time of these tears scales with the range stat.
  • 15►Sprinkler Sprinkler: Sprinkler's tears travel a very short distance in their original direction and can be controlled afterwards.
  • 15►Proptosis Proptosis + 15►Anti-Gravity Anti-Gravity: Tears travel and keep their initial size as long as the fire key is held, allowing for massive damage.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Anti-Gravity Anti-Gravity: Overridden by Eye of the Occult.
  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: Not Recommended. Releasing the key to fire tears will stop the tear's movement, making it difficult to shoot enemies.
  • 15►Cursed Eye Cursed Eye: The tears stack on top of each other, and only move forward when holding a direction afterwards.
  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Bombs will now be controlled both in direction and range.
  • 15►Immaculate Heart Immaculate Heart: Extra tears are not affected by Eye of the Occult. Stat changes still apply.
  • 15►Marked Marked: Tears fired will fly towards the exact crosshair position.
  • 15►Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: Overrides Eye of the Occult.
  • 15►My Reflection My Reflection: Causes the pull to be lessened while actively controlling the tears. Pull returns to normal when not firing.
  • 15►Technology Technology: Creates a controllable crosshair. Lasers are fired towards the crosshair, similar to 15►Marked Marked.
  • 15►Tiny Planet Tiny Planet: Not Recommended. The tears will stop moving when not shooting in the direction of their orbit, making it nearly impossible to control where they go.
  • 15►Tech X Tech X: Overrides Eye of the Occult.
  • 15►Tractor Beam Tractor Beam: Tears will only move forward while being fired, but control is otherwise overridden.
  • 15►Pop! Pop! When being actively moved, tears can stay in the air until the fire button is let go.
  • Homing Tears: Tears still home towards enemies, but controlled movement is stronger than the homing effect.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! The protective aura granted by the Holy Mantle doesn't display while this item is present and the player is flying. This is purely visual and Holy Mantle still acts as expected.
