Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Mom's Contacts is an unlockable passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Adds a chance to shoot petrifying tears, which stop enemies in place and prevent them from moving or attacking.
  • (except in Repentance) +0.25 range. ((in Rebirth) not applied until the next time Isaac's range stat is updated).
  • (in Repentance) +1.5 range.
  • (except in Repentance) +0.5 tear falling speed. ((in Rebirth) not applied until the next time Isaac's tear falling speed is updated).
  • (except in Rebirth) This item belongs to the Yes Mother?Yes Mother? set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into his mother.

Notes[ | ]

  • Despite granting the Yes Mother? transformation, duplicated items will not contribute to unlocking Mom's Contacts. Three different items are required to unlock it.
  • The chance to fire a petrifying tear depends on the luck stat, and the formula used to determine the chance is:
    • At base Luck (0), the chance is 20%, maxing out at 50% at 20 Luck.
  • Petrifying the Heart of a Mask HeartMask + Heart also freezes the Mask bound to it.
  • Petrifying an enemy with a weak zone ( Boss Scolex ingameScolex or Boss Carrion Queen ingameCarrion Queen) will make the enemy take damage anywhere while it is petrified, making combat significantly easier.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! Enemies with multiple segments (Chub, Pin, etc.) can be petrified and have their segments destroyed individually, but continue to live with any remaining health. This can be problematic at times especially with Carrion Queen, as you could destroy the "tail" or center body segment when Carrion Queen is petrified, thus making you have to petrify her again, or use bombs to do damage.
