Notes[ | ]

  • The item will cost 10 cents if found in a ShopShop.
  • Throwing a Throwable BombThrowable Bomb counts as using the bracelet, using up a charge.
  • The item's charge will only be depleted once an object is thrown.
    • Activating the item again will drop the picked up obstacle where Isaac is standing without consuming a charge. This doesn't damage Isaac directly, but any break effects the obstacle has can still occur.
      • This makes it easy to quickly clear paths through large amounts of rocks.
      • While the dropped obstacle is falling toward the ground, it can be picked up again by activating Mom's Bracelet.
        • Obstacles thrown by enemies, such as PoltyPolties, can be caught in the same way.
  • Spiked rocks cannot be picked up, even if their spikes are retracted.
  • Similarly, Metal Blocks, Key Blocks and Pillars also cannot be picked up.
  • Throwing a Giant Poop at an enemy deals 320 damage instead of 40.
  • Activating the item while running into a Red PoopRed Poop will allow Isaac to chuck it and effectively remove it from the room.
  • While carrying a rock, Isaac cannot drop down a trapdoor to the next floor. This can be used as a way to get pickups close to an open trapdoor without accidentally dropping to the next floor.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Collectible Best Friend iconBest Friend: The explosive decoy can be picked up and thrown.
  • Collectible Book of Virtues iconBook of Virtues: Three wisps are created where thrown obstacles land; these wisps rotate around where the obstacle was thrown and fire tears in the same direction Isaac does. The wisps do not persist between rooms. Isaac cannot have more than 8 of these wisps at one time, and wisps in Isaac's middle ring count against this limit. Wisps' tears have a 10% chance of inflicting confusion on enemies.
  • Collectible Cube Baby iconCube Baby: Can be picked up and thrown by using the bracelet while trying to kick the Cube Baby. When thrown, Cube Baby deals around the amount of damage as a higher speed kick, but it will also leave the creep that a frozen enemy would create when kicked.
  • Collectible Dirty Mind iconDirty Mind / Dingle BerryDingle Berry: Friendly DipDips can be picked up and thrown at enemies.

Interactions[ | ]

  • Collectible Car Battery iconCar Battery: No effect.
  • Collectible Multidimensional Baby iconMultidimensional Baby: Rocks thrown through the baby will turn into tears, thus removing the possibility to get any rewards from rocks that spawn them.
  • Stompy transformation: Isaac will raise his hands, but be unable to pick up any rocks, effectively rendering the bracelet useless. Can still be used on HostHosts.
