Range Stat Icon.png Range determines how long tears will travel before landing and is represented by a bow and arrow. Removed in RepentanceEffective range is determined by a combination of the range stat, shot speed, and shot height.

Removed in Repentance This attribute's name is misleading because range determines the time that a shot stays in the air rather than the "distance" that it travels. The effective range is calculated based on said travel time, shot speed, and shot height. Range cannot be lowered below 5.0 but has no upper limit.

  • Added in Repentance Range now represents how many tiles a tear will travel. Range cannot be lowered below 1.0, but has no upper limit.

Extremely high range makes Isaac's tears start so high in the air they can cross over obstacles as if they were spectral, but they won't go through the room walls. Once the tears fall down, they will start hitting obstacles again. This compounds with the height gain from the hidden tear height stat.

Each character's base range is as follows:

  • Azazel Azazel: The mini-blood barrage doesn't calculate its Range the same way as normal tear attacks, so his Range stat is misleading. His attack has a much shorter Range than other characters with the same value.
  • Removed in Repentance Eden Eden: Range is a random value between 18.75 and 28.75, inclusive.
  • Added in Repentance Eden Eden and Tainted Eden Tainted Eden: Range is a random value between 5.0 and 8.0, inclusive.
  • Added in Afterbirth † The Forgotten The Forgotten and Added in Repentance Tainted Forgotten Tainted Forgotten's melee attacks don't calculate their Range the same way as normal tear attacks, and their actual attack range is far less than other characters with the same value.
  • Added in Repentance Tainted Azazel Tainted Azazel: The blood barrage has unlimited Range, so his Range stat isn't commonly relevant.
  • Added in Repentance Tainted Soul Tainted Soul: Incapable of firing tears.
