Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Repentance)

Hypercoagulation is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • After Isaac takes damage from an enemy or donates health, he drops a Red HeartRed Heart that despawns after 1.5 seconds.
    • The heart dropped depends on the source: half-hearts of damage taken drop Half Red HeartHalf Red Hearts, and full hearts of damage taken drop full hearts.
    • The hearts will get launched out of Isaac with momentum, making them difficult to pick up.
    • If Isaac is firing tears as he gets hit, the heart will get launched in that direction.
