Added in Repentance

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


  • Gives Isaac 5 bombs.
  • Isaac's bombs become spectral, and will pass through objects.
  • Isaac's bombs create ghosts when they explode, which rapidly chase and deal contact damage to enemies.
    • The ghost deals contact damage equal to half of Isaac's damage (2x Isaac's damage per second).
  • 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.


  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Spectral bombs are less likely to hit Isaac, but make it harder to blow up specific rocks.
  • 15►Scatter Bombs Scatter Bombs: Smaller bombs grant smaller ghosts that seek nearby enemies and explode immediately.
