  • Creates a ring of 12 projectiles around himself, then fires them towards Isaac in short staggered intervals starting from 2 opposite ends of the ring.
  • Summons a large water projectile overhead, then pops it, unleashing a burst of projectiles in random directions.
  • Twirls around, following Isaac's movements while summoning projectiles around himself which hover briefly before being fired towards Isaac.
    • At the end of this attack, the Rainmaker releases 8 projectiles in a radial burst.
