Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki
RERUN option in main menu

The main menu with the RERUN option active

RERUN is a menu option in Afterbirth † unlocked after completing the RERUN achievement (Unlocked by completing 3 Victory Laps in a row and starting the fourth).

After winning a run the Continue option in the main menu will be replaced by RERUN. Selecting it starts a new run using most of the previous won run's items.


  • Isaac will take full heart damage on all floors.
    • Except Greed Mode, where all damage is always counted as half a heart due to its mechanics.
  • It may not be necessary to start a 4th lap to complete the achievement on some versions/platforms. Even if an extra lap is started, it may be quit immediately.
  • RERUN cannot be used multiple times in a row. After beating a RERUN, the main menu option becomes Continue again.
    • The run with the last character can be relaunched only via defeating The Lamb and starting Victory Lap.
    • After ending a Victory Lap in any way, the option in the menu is still Continue.
  • RERUN is not counted into the win streak.
  • Achievements are disabled for RERUN.


Bug Bug! Starting a RERUN with Schoolbag and two active items may copy the item in the "first" slot to both slots.
Bug Bug! Winning the run with The Soul instead of The Forgotten will start the RERUN as The Soul without any chains connecting it to The Forgotten. Switching back to The Forgotten returns everything to its normal state.
