Notes[ | ]

  • Slowing Gurdy Jr. will, for the most part, render her charge attack useless.
  • (except in Repentance) Piercing tears lack knockback and cannot be used to divert or stop Gurdy Jr.'s charge attack.
  • If Gurdy Jr. is feared/stunned during her charge attack after the effect wears off, she will immediately charge at Isaac.
  • Gurdy Jr's charge attack has no telegraphing, making it very dangerous to stay close due to the lack of a warning.
