Effects[edit | edit source]

  • After every 15 tears fired, Isaac will fire a low range Monstro's Lung -like barrage of 12 tears.
    • Removed in Repentance Tears in the barrage deal double damage.
  • Tears will fire only from Isaac's right eye.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Lead Pencil gives characters other than Cain Cain the same special properties that he has when it comes to one-eye items like 15►Blood Clot Blood Clot.
  • Removed in Repentance Tears fired from items that cause multiple tears to be fired at once e.g. 15►20/20 20/20, 15►Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung, etc. are counted.

  • 15►Haemolacria Haemolacria: Fires a barrage of Haemolacria tears, all of which will burst.
  • 15►Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: Tears tend to clump together, becoming one giant tear which splits into 8 large tears. When tears burst, they can also spawn barrages of tears that can be fed.
