Isaac's body gains a larger hitsphere than previously to block shots with and is also pushed less by enemies. While an enemy is in contact with Isaac's body, they take 7 damage over 2-3 ticks per second. Enemies now target Isaac's body instead of the heart. This item no longer prevents damage from self-harm mechanics/items.

- 294 - Butter Bean - Now knocks back enemies and projectiles with significantly more force. If a pushed enemy hits a rock or wall forcefully enough, they take 10 damage.

The cannon will remain broken and unusable until recharged (four rooms, alternative means of charging still work).
