Notes[]

Synergies[]

  • Angelic Prism Angelic Prism: When the laser hits the prism, it will split in four.
  • Anti-Gravity Anti-Gravity: The laser fires in place, not following Isaac.
  • Brain Worm Brain Worm: The laser can bend completely to hit an enemy, effectively acting as a better form of homing on single enemies and bosses.
  • Continuum Continuum The laser loops around. The laser cannot hit the same enemy twice.
  • Cricket's Body Cricket's Body: Spawns 4 split tears on the first enemy or obstacle the laser hits every other tick. The tears are Piercing and deal half damage of the laser. They can hit the same enemy the laser hit.
  • Eve's Mascara Eve's Mascara / Polyphemus Polyphemus: As the laser deals Isaac’s damage, but is not affected by tear delay, the DPS of the laser is greatly increased.
  • Homing tears: The laser will home in on enemies in a very effective way.
  • Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: The laser has reduced range, but spawns a red Lachryphagy tear per tick. The tears are Piercing and deal the damage of the laser. They can hit the same enemy the laser hit.
  • Marked Marked: The laser is fired automatically upon reaching full charge in the direction of the mark. Combined with charged attacks, this allows them to keep their DPS.
  • Multidimensional Baby Multidimensional Baby: The baby can duplicate the laser.
    • Multidimensional Baby + Lachryphagy Lachryphagy / Pop! Pop!: Lasers modified by Multidimensional Baby are no longer affected by Lachryphagy or Pop!, being normal length and not firing additional tears/eyes out the end.
  • The Parasite The Parasite: Spawns two perpendicular lasers on the first enemy or obstacle the laser hits. The laser and its split lasers cannot hit the same enemy.
  • Pop! Pop!: The laser has reduced range, but shoots out an eyeball per tick. The tears are Piercing and deal the damage of the laser. They can hit the same enemy the laser hit.
  • Proptosis Proptosis: The beam deals ~2.47x Isaac's Damage at point blank range.
  • Rubber Cement Rubber Cement: The laser will bounce off the walls for a short distance.
  • Tiny Planet Tiny Planet: The laser will wrap around Isaac once and then shoot straight forward.

  • Explosivo Explosivo / Mucormycosis Mucormycosis / Sinus Infection Sinus Infection: No effect.

  • Jacob's Ladder Jacob's Ladder: Upon hitting an enemy, wall or obstacle, the beam generates sparks that home in on enemies.

In-game footage[]

Trivia[]

  • This item makes Isaac resemble Uriel Uriel and Gabriel Gabriel, and its ability resembles the two angels' abilities to fire a directed holy blast.
  • Revelation is when something that was hidden becomes known. For many religious people revelation comes from God and reveals something about God. There are two types of revelation: General (or indirect) revelation – called 'general' or 'indirect' because it is available to everyone.

Bugs[]

Bug Bug! When combined with Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk, Cursed Eye Cursed Eye, Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung or Tech X Tech X, releasing a Revelation 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.
