Soy Milk is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Reduces tear delay by the formula: (delay / 4) - 2
  • 0.2x damage multiplier.
  • 0.5x tear size multiplier.
  • Added in Repentance Drastically reduces knockback from Isaac's tears.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • At base tear rate, Soy Milk sets the player's tear delay to the game's minimum value of 1, for 15 tears per second. This is much lower than the normal minimum tear delay; see the tear delay explanation page.
  • At base damage, Soy Milk is a very small DPS up. With a tear delay of 8 or lower, Soy Milk becomes a DPS down. The more tears per second before obtaining Soy Milk, the greater the decrease in DPS.
  • Soy Milk's damage down stat also significantly decreases tear size.
  • The endless stream of tears effectively increases directional knockback.
  • Due to the high fire rate, items that cause tears to inflict status effects activate more frequently.
  • Removed in Afterbirth Soy Milk is a special item.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►20/20 20/20: The shot pattern may help in controlling enemy knockback, in addition to dealing up to double damage.
  • 15►Blood Clot Blood Clot: +1 damage bonus on Blood Clot tears is unaffected by the damage penalty.
  • 15►Chemical Peel Chemical Peel: +2 damage bonus on Chemical Peel tears is unaffected by the damage penalty.
  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: Shots cannot be charged, but Isaac gains a flat +1 damage up after the Soy Milk penalty.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►Explosivo Explosivo: Despite the tiny appearance of the bomb tears, the explosions will do normal explosion damage. Due to the massive fire rate, many bombs can be applied in extremely quick succession, decimating anything after a short delay.
  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus:
    • Removed in Repentance Allows for incredibly fast firing medium damage bombs.
    • Added in Repentance Fires tiny bombs, like the kinds created by Scatter Bombs. Fire rate is unaffected; damage downgrade applies as normal.
  • 15►Ipecac Ipecac: The very fast rate of fire fills the screen with low damage explosions.
  • 15►Libra Libra:
    • Removed in RepentanceDecreases fire rate slightly, but massively increases damage, range, and speed. Tear height is also massively increased, meaning tears can hit enemies through obstacles without spectral effect.
    • Added in RepentanceResets stats to slightly higher than base level
    • Added in Repentance15►Libra Libra + 15►Brimstone Brimstone: Constant Brimstone beam at with normal/higher damage
  • 15►Lost Contact Lost Contact: Extremely effective at blocking shots.
  • 15►A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal: Significantly increases tear damage as they get further away. Even with only this synergy, individual tear damage appears to approach starting tear damage when firing over longer distances.
  • 15►Mysterious Liquid Mysterious Liquid: Each shot creates creep that deals reasonable damage but stacks with every shot, causing hefty damage.
  • Piercing tears: Causes tears to affect enemy movement less for better accuracy, though also removes the advantage of rapidly knocking back enemies.
  • 15►Pisces Pisces: Greatly increases knockback, allowing tears to pin enemies against walls.
  • Added in Repentance15►Rock Bottom Rock Bottom: If Soy Milk is picked up at an opportune time (after Rock Bottom and preferably near the end of the run), it will result in a huge gain in fire rate without the damage penalty.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Technology Zero Technology Zero: The near-constant stream of tears will have electricity chained between them, providing an electrical net of damage making it almost impossible to not hit an enemy. This can greatly help offset the lowered damage by increasing the number of hits.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►Tech X Tech X: Added in Repentance Tech X no longer requires charging and will rapidly fire full-sized laser rings.
  • 15►Brimstone Brimstone: Added in Repentance Brimstone will fire constantly and can be aimed.
    • Azazel Azazel gains this ability with his low-ranged Brimstone.
  • 15►Monstro's Lung Monstro's Lung: Added in RepentanceMonstro's lung no longer requires charging, creating rapid-fire tear barrages.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Damage of missiles will be decreased accordingly, but unlike normal tears, there is still a fixed timed delay between firing missiles
  • 15►Proptosis Proptosis: The low-damage, lowered size tears disappear extremely quickly, greatly reducing range.
  • 15►Technology 2 Technology 2: Half of the Soy Milk tears are replaced by constant laser, but damage down compounds.
    • Added in Repentance: Half of the soy milk tears are still replaced, but there is no damage down.
