Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Added in Afterbirth

Glitter Bombs is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.


  • Grants 5 Bomb Bombs.
  • Isaac's bombs have a chance to spawn a pickup or trinket when they explode.
  • Isaac's bombs have a chance to charm random enemies in the room when they explode.


  • Removed in Repentance Picking up a Golden Bomb Golden Bomb, Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus, Epic Fetus Epic Fetus, or Number Two Number Two with Glitter Bombs allows infinite pickup generation.
    • In Greed mode, infinite pickup generation is still possible, but excludes coins, presumably to prevent the player from filling the Greed Donation Machine.png Greed Donation Machine in a single run. However, this can be worked around if Isaac has the Swallowed Penny Swallowed Penny or Piggy Bank Piggy Bank, since it does still produce health.
  • Added in Repentance There is a limit on the number of pickups that can be generated per floor, preventing items like Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus or a Golden Bomb Golden Bomb from providing unlimited resources. The maximum spawns per floor are between 63 and 65 pickups.
