Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Repentance)

Montezuma's Revenge is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[ | ]

  • Continuously shooting for 2.35 seconds allows Isaac to fire a short-ranged brown Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone laser and corn shots behind himself by releasing the fire button.
    • The laser deals Isaac's damage per tick (15x Isaac's damage per second), ticks up to 19 times and lasts ~1.28 seconds (77 frames).
    • Corn shots deal 6 damage, and a random amount are created each blast.
  • This item belongs to the Oh CrapOh Crap set. Collecting three items from this set will transform Isaac into a walking pile of poop.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Montezuma's Revenge, Collectible Number Two iconNumber Two, Collectible Maw Of The Void iconMaw Of The Void and Collectible Revelation iconRevelation all have the same charge time, allowing Isaac to easily utilize them at same time.
  • Brain WormBrain Worm: Can cause the poop beam to hook to a target anywhere in the room, potentially hitting a target far outside of its usual range.
  • Collectible Dark Arts iconDark Arts: The corn Isaac poops out can be sliced, giving Isaac an insane damage up in seconds.
  • Collectible Hemoptysis iconHemoptysis: Enemies hit by the sneeze will gain a curse that increases the damage the poop beam deals to 2x and +3 flat damage. Enemies who die to the poop beam under the curse will damage and spread the curse to nearby enemies.
  • Collectible Ipecac iconIpecac: The poop beam will unleash a barrage of explosions at the end of it.
  • Collectible Jacob's Ladder iconJacob's Ladder: The brown laser Isaac fires will produce random arcs of electricity at the end of the laser. The corn Isaac poops out does not interact with the electricity.
  • Collectible Lachryphagy iconLachryphagy: Spawns a large amount of tears at the end of the poop beam, heavily increasing Isaac's damage output.
  • Collectible My Reflection iconMy Reflection: Causes the poop beam range behind Isaac to become significantly increased as well as having a short range similar to Azazel's beam in front of him. This greatly eases the use of this item allowing for high DPS.
  • Collectible The Parasite iconThe Parasite: The poop beam splits into two horizontal beams meaning less risk for Isaac and a bigger area for enemies to be hit.

Interactions[ | ]

  • Collectible Censer iconCenser: The corn shots are slowed by the aura.
  • Collectible Eye of the Occult iconEye of the Occult: No effect.
    • Eye of the Occult + Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone/Collectible Technology iconTechnology: The poop beam also automatically fires at the crosshair and becomes a lasso. The loop starts where the beam would normally end and extends out to the cross-hair.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Montezuma's Revenge is a colloquial term for Traveler's Diarrhea, an intestinal infection caused by ingesting contaminated food or water. Montezuma II was the last Aztec ruler before the Spanish conquest of the Aztec civilization, and the sickness is seen as a curse afflicting tourists visiting Mexico as revenge for the Aztec massacre.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! PC When playing as Character Tainted Forgotten iconTainted Forgotten, the charge attack will always come out of the left of the body regardless of the direction it or the Soul is facing.
Bug Bug! When combined with Collectible Chocolate Milk iconChocolate Milk, Collectible Cursed Eye iconCursed Eye, Collectible Monstro's Lung iconMonstro's Lung or Collectible Tech X iconTech X, releasing a Montezuma's Revenge attack may prevent a charged shot from firing at the same time as expected. The charged shot is delayed by about ~0.5 seconds. Holding a full charge for a longer time makes the delay more likely to happen.
