#5 The Tank

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

Challenge: #5 The Tank

Description: The Tank challenge requires you to play as Magdalene and run to the Depths II to defeat Mom.

Unlock: This Challenge is unlocked when you unlock Magdalene. To unlock Magdalene you must acquire 7 full heart containers in one run.

Starting Items:

Bucket of Lard


Thunder Thighs

Yum Heart

Strategy: The toughest thing about this challenge is that you are starting off with two speed down items. You are surprisingly slow and it will greatly reduce your ability to avoid enemies as well as their projectiles. For the quicker moving enemies precision shooting and relying on the little knock back your tears have will be key. For the projectiles, keeping yourself at a distance to give yourself a little more reaction time will be helpful. For enemies that have a Brimstone attack, like the Fallen or Krampus, try to stay directly out of the path it will be firing from. Cover will be very important for this challenge. You do need to be careful if you are seeking cover because with Thunder Thighs you will break whatever you are trying to hide behind if you walk over it. It would be in your best interest to walk over most obstacles after clearing the room. Stay away from Mushrooms, bomb rocks and skulls because they have a chance to damage you as soon as you walk over them. Starting with seven hearts is very beneficial for Devil Deals. Even though it is much trickier to not take any red heart damage for the run, finding tinted rocks and hoping Infamy protects you will make it a little easier. Don’t rely too much on Infamy if you are cutting it close. It is better to be surprised it worked then relying on it when it doesn’t.

Completion: Completion of this challenge unlocks the Rune of Ansuz.
