How to Break Greed Mode
Howdy, y'all. Just came across pretty much the most broken synergy I've ever seen, so I figured I'd share it here! It's a way to effectively get every single item in the game (if you've got the time). It's actually fairly simple, all things told. Here's how you do it:

Step 1
Manage to get Blank Card and the Two of Diamonds on the same run. The seed I got them on was 1SYM MFFV, but I'm sure it's not that uncommon of a setup regardless.

Step 2
Gather at least 11 cents. This should be painfully easy in Greed Mode.

Step 3
Find a shop with a battery consumable for sale. They sell for 5 cents, or 3 cents on sale. If there's not one in your shop, you can always use the reroll machine until you get one.

Step 4
Buy the battery consumable to recharge Blank Card. This'll leave you with 6 cents. Use Blank Card to double that to 12 cents. Since you can buy the battery consumable over and over again in Greed Mode, rinse and repeat this step until you have 99 cents.

Step 5
Buy whatever items you like from the store. Make sure you don't go below 11 cents (unless you have the Car Battery) so you can keep doing the battery trick.

Step 6
Repeat steps four and five until you have the items you want.

And that's really it! You can get infinite money and buy every item in the game so long as you don't mess it up. And even if you do, it's not hard in Greed Mode to get the money to make the trick work again. It's basically idiot-proof in this way. So have fun, and stomp through Ultra Greed however you like!

Keep on keeping on,
—Argon

P.S.: Watch out for certain items. Missingno crashed my game, and Lil Baggie will get rid of your Two of Diamonds card. Certain tear combos seem to crash the game as well, so be careful.

no instructions necessary. This mode is way too easy. Finished it with my very first try.

I know it's not the hardest mode, so you don't need this trick to win. I just thought this was a really fun synergy that people might wanna try out.

I ended up breaking the game mode with an IV Bag along with a piggy bank. Using the IV to exchange hearts for coins also triggers the piggy bank to drop coins as well (sometimes even dropping nickels and dimes). You can make on average 7-10 cents per whole heart consumed.
Using that cash, I just purchased the shop's infinite spawning hearts for three cents to continue the money making process.
With my profit I bought whatever I wanted and refreshed the items in the room that I didn't want. I ended up being able to fire a triple shot of Dr. Fetus bombs that exploded with the force of a thousand suns going supernova. Firing it just once cleared multiple waves. It was simply glorious. :blissful_creep:

I'll do you one better.

Ipecap + pyromaniac + IV bag, all by floor 2

By the end of the run I had no idea what was even happening, stuff just died instantly. Sadly there's a limit to how much you can put in the machine at the end, otherwise I could have maxed it out in that one run.

Epic Fetus+Blank Card+Jera Rune= Best combo ever for greed
way way faster than any of these combos

Piggy bank and you are ready to go.

IV bag + anything to boost the returns (swalloed penny, piggy bank, steam sale, fanny pack) is very easy to get, and works like a charm. It's not even funny anymore.

Where is the blank card? :pug:

You can also use the ? card with the blank card to get two items for free

How does that give you an item? It just looks like an infinte loop as you activate the blank card, which triggers the ? card, which triggers the blank card again.

? card drops 2 Items instead of using the Blank Card for free.

Anybody could give me the best seed to make a breaking run on greed mode?
dylan Nov 15, 2015 @ 3:27am 
Probably this one, Two of Diamonds appears on the 2nd Floor (I think) and Blank card appears on the Womb/Sheol, Don't reroll anything :pug:
