Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

(in Afterbirth † and Repentance)

Sprinkler is an unlockable activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth † (Booster Pack #1).

Effects[ | ]

  • Upon use, creates a stationary sprinkler that rotates and fires tears in 8 directions. The tears copy Isaac's stats and most tear effects.

Notes[ | ]

  • Sprinkler's rate of fire and rotation speed depends on Isaac's tears stat.
  • Sprinkler does not do contact damage.
  • It is counted as an obstacle and will block some enemies movement, e.g: Boss Chub ingameChub.

No Effect[ | ]

The following tear effects do not apply to/are not copied by Sprinklers, although direct stat changes are applied (probably not exhaustive; needs testing):
