Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Shoop da Whoop! is an activated item.

Effects[ | ]

  • When used, the next shot will fire a large, Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone-like laser in the direction Isaac shoots that deals double Isaac's tear damage. If Isaac is already shooting, the item immediately activates in that direction.
    • (except in Repentance) The laser hits up to 13 times.
    • (in Repentance) The laser hits up to 12 times.
    • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance) Status effects can be applied by the laser.

Notes[ | ]

  • Despite the laser looking very similar to Brimstone, it doesn't share most of the Brimstone-specific interactions.
  • This item can drop from EnvyEnvy.
  • Can still be used while blindfolded.
  • This item synergizes extremely well with items that significantly increase damage such as Collectible Polyphemus iconPolyphemus and Collectible Ipecac iconIpecac.

Synergies[ | ]

  • (in Repentance)Collectible 4.5 Volt icon4.5 Volt: Allows the item to be charged and used multiple times in a room, which can help with dealing extra damage in enduring fights like most endgame bosses.
  • Collectible 9 Volt icon9 Volt: Can be used once every room, and more frequently in Challenge RoomChallenge Rooms.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Book of Virtues iconBook of Virtues: Spawns white wisps in the outer ring that resemble Shoop da Whoop!. The wisps will not fire tears, but will each fire a thin Shoop da Whoop! laser whenever Isaac uses it (including the wisp that was just summoned). The lasers deal 7 damage per tick (BUG: 3.5 if Isaac has Collectible BFFS! iconBFFS!), and can hit up to 10 times for a total of 70 damage.
  • Broken RemoteBroken Remote: Since item charges aren't expended until Isaac chooses a direction to shoot, the player can teleport across the floor indefinitely.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Hemoptysis iconHemoptysis: Enemies hit by the sneeze will gain a curse that increases the power of the laser by 2x and +3 flat damage, on top of the 2x base damage already applied by Shoop da Whoop. Enemies who die to the laser under the curse will damage and spread the curse to nearby enemies.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Shoop da Whoop! is a reference to an internet meme depicting an edited face of Cell from the anime Dragon Ball Z firing a laser from its mouth. This meme is usually accompanied by the quote "I'm-a firin' mah lazar!", followed by "BLLLARRRRGGG!", which is where the item's tooltip comes from.

Bugs[ | ]

Bug Bug! Using the item at the same time that you touch a large Golden Chest (dropped by final bosses such as The Lamb and ???) will freeze Isaac, and the ending won't appear. Leaving and re-entering the run will fix the bug.
