Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(except in Rebirth)

Fate's Reward is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effects[ | ]

  • Spawns a familiar that fires tears with the same damage and tear effects as Isaac's tears.
  • Fires at half the normal fire rate of a familiar.
  • The familiar is not affected by (except in Repentance) range/(in Repentance) tear height, only tear falling speed.
    • (in Repentance) Since tear height and shot speed ups lower tear falling speed in order to adjust Isaac's range, increases to either stat will decrease the familiar's range, and decreases to either stat will increase the familiar's range.

Notes[ | ]

  • (in Repentance) Familiars that follow behind Isaac have a certain priority in how close their position is to him over other familiars, with Fate's Reward having 5th priority.
