Downpour is a new environment added in Antibirth.
Treasure rooms in Downpour always have two items to choose from.
Downpour resembles flooded sewers, with water reflecting the environment. Its enemies are water-themed and mainly shoot tears, like Isaac, instead of blood. Under certain circumstances, after killing all enemies in the room, several Gapers will emerge from the water to attack Isaac.
Downpour is the only one of the four new added chapters in Antibirth that can contain a Rebirth boss that isn't the Fallen (the Haunt).
Unique Elements[edit | edit source]
Flooding & Storm[edit | edit source]
The Downpour features a heavy emphasis on water and flooding. The entire floor is submerged in a pool of waist-deep water, that some enemies such as Small Leeches and Striders are capable of using to swim over pits. Numerous Deep Gapers also hide beneath the water and emerged when all enemies in the room have been killed. The reflection visible in the water is also utilized by Wraiths, which they are always visible in even though they are invisible otherwise. There is also a storm playing out in the background, which when lightning strikes, brightens up the room and reveals any Wraiths in the room.
Ghosts[edit | edit source]
The Downpour is also home to many incorporeal elements as well. Appearing in this level are Polties and Mullighouls, along with the invisible, ghostlike Wraiths, in addition to the returning Rebirth boss The Haunt, which coupled with the darkened environment gives the level a rather supernatural feel.

||Runs away from Isaac and periodically spawns Small Leeches. Spawns more Small Leeches upon death.|
||Rotates and fires tears upon taking damage.|
||Slowly walks towards Isaac, occasionally firing a tear at Isaac when damaged. Upon death, bursts into a fountain of tears.|

||Runs away from Isaac, occasionally spawning a Willo. Spawns a Willo upon death.|
||Appears out of a random bucket, then picks up and throws obstacles at Isaac. If the room has no usable obstacles, it will leave the room. If there are any Tinted Rocks in the room, it will wait until they are the last remaining obstacle, then attempt to flee with one of them.|
