Slow Roll is Challenge #15. Start off with 15►Polyphemus Polyphemus, 15►Cupid's Arrow Cupid's Arrow, and 15►My Reflection My Reflection. Damage is fixed at 100, shot speed is fixed at 1.0 and tear delay is fixed at 60. The goal is to defeat Mom. This Challenge is unlocked by default.

Difficulty[]

Tears are huge, are blocked by obstacles, have a slow, small range, and there is a substantial cooldown between firing each shot.

Strategy[]

  • Tears fired are huge and do high amounts of damage, meaning it is not difficult to kill an enemy if there is a clear shot.
  • Thanks to Cupid's Arrow, tears do not disappear when hitting an enemy.
  • My Reflection will shrink the range of tears considerably, to about half a room. A little practice is more than enough to accommodate it.
  • The biggest worry in this challenge is large amounts of Obstacles. This can be mitigated by spectral tears, such as those granted by 15►Spirit of the Night Spirit of the Night or 15►Dead Dove Dead Dove. These items can be found in a Devil Room or Angel Room, respectively.
  • 15►Mom's Knife Mom's Knife can be considered as a high risk, high reward item to get in this challenge- while it must be fought with almost exclusively at melee range (due to its excruciatingly long charge), it deals enough damage to where it can one-hit kill almost all enemies (including bosses).
  • 15►Guppy's Head Guppy's Head spawns flies that deal twice the starting damage, making them extremely effective weapons.
  • Removed in RepentanceAdded in Afterbirth15►Succubus Succubus will kill most enemies and early-game bosses instantaneously (as soon as they enter the area of its damage).
  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk will allow Isaac to rapidly fire large shots that each still deal high damage.
  • 15►Tammy's Head Tammy's Head fires 10 high power shots, making it an easy option for clearing the challenge.
  • Added in Repentance 15►Notched Axe Notched Axe's swings scale off of Isaac's damage, and are not affected by tear delay, resulting in quite a useful weapon.
