Added in Repentance

Ghost Bombs is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

  • After 10 seconds, the ghost explodes, dealing 7 damage to nearby enemies up to 3 times. Isaac does not take damage from the explosion.
    • If there are no enemies in the room, the ghost follows Isaac. However, it cannot follow Isaac between rooms.
