Soy Milk is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

Notes[ | ]

  • (except in Repentance) 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.
  • (except in Repentance) 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.
  • (except in Repentance) 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.
  • (in Rebirth) Soy Milk is a special item.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Collectible 20 20 icon20/20: The shot pattern may help in controlling enemy knockback, in addition to dealing up to (except in Repentance) double damage (in Repentance) 60% more damage.
  • Collectible Blood Clot iconBlood Clot: +1 damage bonus on the left eye. Blood Clot tears are unaffected by the damage penalty.
  • (in Repentance) Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone/ Character Azazel iconAzazel: Beam can be fired continuously after charging.
  • Collectible Chemical Peel iconChemical Peel: +2 damage bonus on the left eye. Chemical Peel tears are unaffected by the damage penalty.
  • (except in Repentance)Collectible Chocolate Milk iconChocolate Milk: Shots cannot be charged, but Isaac gains a flat +1 damage up after the Soy Milk penalty.
    • (in Repentance) Shots cannot be charged, but Isaac shoots moderately charged shots at a quick pace.
  • (in Repentance) Collectible Cursed Eye iconCursed Eye: Fires automatically upon reaching full charge. This may be riskier than Cursed Eye alone because Soy Milk prevents Isaac from holding a fully charged shot.
  • (except in Rebirth)Collectible Explosivo iconExplosivo: 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.
  • (except in Rebirth)Collectible Head of the Keeper iconHead of the Keeper: The barrage of tears makes it much more likely for coin drops.
  • Collectible Ipecac iconIpecac: The very fast rate of fire fills the screen with low damage explosions.
    • Ipecac + Collectible Technology iconTechnology: The lasers will explode when they hit a rock, wall, or enemy. This combined with Soy Milk's fire rate and Ipecac's damage makes for an extremely safe method of clearing most rooms.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Lead Pencil iconLead Pencil: The extra tear burst is fired very often.
  • (except in Repentance) Collectible Libra iconLibra: Decreases 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.
    • (in Repentance) Resets stats to slightly higher than base level.
    • (in Repentance) Libra + Collectible Brimstone iconBrimstone: Constant Brimstone beam at normal/higher damage.
  • Collectible Lost Contact iconLost Contact: Extremely effective at blocking shots.
  • Collectible A Lump of Coal iconA Lump of Coal: Significantly increases tear damage as they get further away.
  • (in Repentance) Collectible Monstro's Lung iconMonstro's Lung: Continuously fires tear barrages without the need to be charged.
  • Collectible The Mulligan iconThe Mulligan: Will generate an enormous wave of blue flies given that each tear has a 1/6 chance of spawning one.
  • Collectible Mysterious Liquid iconMysterious 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.
  • Collectible Pisces iconPisces: Greatly increases knockback, allowing tears to pin enemies against walls.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Rock Bottom iconRock Bottom: Grants a huge fire rate up without lowering Isaac's current damage. However, the damage multiplier and damage down still apply behind the scenes, making it very difficult to gain additional damage.
  • Collectible Strange Attractor iconStrange Attractor: Enemies get pulled towards Isaac's tears, allowing for higher accuracy and a way to work around the reduced knockback.
    • Despite the tears having a stronger magnetic quality as they travel, it is still possible for enemies to get knocked wildly around the room. It is advised to play the long-range game when utilizing this synergy.
  • (in Repentance) Collectible Tech X iconTech X: Automatically charges and fires fully charged Tech X rings. Non-fully charged rings can still be fired by releasing the fire key during charging, but much harder due to the high fire rate and removal of charge bar.
  • (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Collectible Technology Zero iconTechnology 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.

Interactions[ | ]
