Effects[]

  • Spawns a red crack in the ground somewhere in the room while Isaac is in a room with enemies. Walking over the crack summons a ghost that homes in on the nearest enemy, exploding when it hits it. After the ghost is summoned, cracks will keep showing up in the room until it is cleared.

    • The ghost deals double Isaac's damage per tick, up to 4 times.

Notes[]

  • Only one crack is active at a time.
  • The explosion does not hurt Isaac.
  • If a crack is stepped on and the room is cleared before the ghost spawns, it will fly to a random location and explode there.
  • The explosions from the ghosts will destroy enemy tears.
  • Cracks don't spawn in Challenge Room Challenge Rooms.

Interactions[]
