Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Afterbirth † and Repentance)

Finger! is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †.

Effect[ | ]

  • Spawns a floating finger familiar that can be aimed with the fire buttons in all directions.
    • The finger fires invisible spectral lasers, doing 10% of Isaac's Damage. The lasers fire 10 times per second and are not affected by Isaac's tear rate.
    • The lasers have thickness based on Isaac's Damage, making it easier to inflict damage on higher Damage.
    • While not being aimed with the fire buttons, the finger points in the direction of movement or downwards if standing still.
  • (except in Repentance) The Finger!'s lasers can apply Isaac's Tear effects, which makes status effects trigger very often.

Notes[ | ]

  • Finger! will fire in the exact direction it's pointed, meaning it can be fired diagonally, or at any angle, if using a controller - the same effect as Collectible Analog Stick iconAnalog Stick.
  • The beam can be used to destroy TNTTNT (among other destructible obstacles).
  • The Finger! does not do contact damage.
