Added in Afterbirth

Tear Detonator is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effect[]

  • Once activated, all tears in the air split into 6 more tears in all directions, which retain their damage, and shot speed.
    • Luck-based effects from items such as 15►Tough Love Tough Love or 15►Holy Light Holy Light are applied individually to each tear.

Synergies[]

  • Added in Repentance15►Akeldama Akeldama: Will bust tears generated by Akeldama into Isaac's current tears.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Angelic Prism Angelic Prism: Tears that are split by the prism can be split again by Tear Detonator.
  • 15►Anti-Gravity Anti-Gravity: All tears currently floating in the air will be multiplied, resulting in a massive amount of tears.
  • Added in Repentance15►Book of Virtues Book of Virtues: The wisps' tears are also detonated; the resulting tears are based on Isaac's own, rather than the wisps'. Created wisps have a chance to trigger Tear Detonator's effect when destroyed.
  • 15►Car Battery Car Battery: Multiplies the tears, effectively creating dozens of tears.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Compound Fracture Compound Fracture/15►Cricket's Body Cricket's Body/15►The Parasite The Parasite: Tears that are split can split again into burst tears.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Haemolacria Haemolacria: Splits tears into 6 Haemolacria tears that burst into split tears. If split tears are burst, all of them will split into 6 Haemolacria tears creating an enormous amount of tears when the main tear splits again.
  • 15►Ipecac Ipecac: All tears will split into 6 explosive tears, making it very powerful (but also dangerous unless Isaac has 15►Host Hat Host Hat or 15►Pyromaniac Pyromaniac).
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Lachryphagy Lachryphagy: Similar to the Haemolacria synergy, if the main tear splits, 6 tears will spawn that can be fed. However, if burst tears are split, all burst tears will split into 6 tears resulting in an enormous amount of tears that are likely to feed each other.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Lead Pencil Lead Pencil: Each of the tears explodes into 6 smaller tears.
  • 15►The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: The tear explodes into six smaller tears, then reappears next to the player.
  • 15►My Reflection My Reflection: The shrapnel tears will curve back to the location of the original detonated tear.
  • 15►Sad Bombs Sad Bombs: Bomb tears are multiplied.
  • Shooting familiars: Shooting familiars' tears explode into Isaac's tears, with his actual damage and effects.
  • 15►Tiny Planet Tiny Planet: Tears split, and then orbit around where the tear was originally from, three spinning clockwise, three counterclockwise.
  • Added in Afterbirth †15►Trisagion Trisagion: Tears split into six beams.

Interactions[]

  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: No matter how charged the tears are, split tears always deal a tiny amount of damage.
  • 15►Explosivo Explosivo: Tears that are stuck to enemies will not deal explosion damage; tears released by it may be sticky tears that immediately stick back onto the enemy.
