For all Tech items, check Tech (disambiguation)

Technology 2 is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Replaces Isaac's right eye tears with an unlimited range piercing laser which fires continuously, dealing damage 15 times per second.
  • (except in Repentance) x0.65 Damage multiplier.
  • (except in Repentance) The laser deals 20% of Isaac's damage per tick.
    • This compounds with the damage down for a total of 13% of Isaac's damage per tick.
  • (in Repentance) Only the laser deals 13% of Isaac's damage per tick.
  • (in Repentance) Tears fired per second * (2/3).
  • (in Repentance) Laser is able to knock back enemies.

Notes[ | ]

  • Tear delay is effectively doubled, as Isaac will do a bit of the animation to fire a right eye tear, but no tear will come out.
  • Charged shots are not affected by the effective tear delay down, as they don't use the alternative left eye/right eye fire scheme.
  • (except in Repentance) As Character Cain iconCain can only fire tears from his right eye, Technology 2 will replace his tears altogether unless he has Collectible Technology iconTechnology or a charged attack.
    • (in Repentance) When used by Cain, or a character that is forced to fire from one eye due to the effects of Collectible Stapler iconStapler or Collectible Lead Pencil iconLead Pencil, they will fire Collectible Technology iconTechnology lasers out of their right eye instead of their normal tears, as long as they have no other items that replace their tears (Collectible Neptunus iconNeptunus lets them fire tears normally). These lasers cannot be angled with momentum.
  • (except in Repentance) Because Character Lilith iconLilith is blindfolded and relies on her (except in Rebirth)Collectible Incubus iconIncubus, the only effect gained from Technology 2 is the damage down.
    • (in Repentance) Incubus can fire laser and tears as normal; stat effects apply.
  • (in Repentance) The blood clots spawned by Character Tainted Eve iconTainted Eve will all also fire their own individual lasers.
  • The laser can apply status effects very efficiently due to its high tick rate.

Synergies[ | ]

  • Collectible Chocolate Milk iconChocolate Milk: The laser fires while Chocolate Milk charges at normal rate.
  • (in Repentance)Collectible Cricket's Body iconCricket's Body / Collectible The Parasite iconThe Parasite: The laser will rapidly split into small low damage tears upon impact with an enemy or obstacle.

  • (in Repentance) Collectible Euthanasia iconEuthanasia / Collectible Explosivo iconExplosivo / Collectible Holy Light iconHoly Light / Nose GoblinNose Goblin / Collectible Sinus Infection iconSinus Infection: Every damage tick from the laser can also apply these tear effects and does so rapidly.

  • Collectible Lost Contact iconLost Contact: The laser destroys all hostile projectiles that come into contact with it.
