Slay the Spire Wiki

Double Tap is a Skill card for the Ironclad. It plays the next Attack card this turn a second time, for no Energy. As a Rare card, it can be obtained after defeating a Boss. It is Ironclad's version of Burst and Amplify.

Upon upgrade, it will trigger for the 2nd Attack card played in the same turn.

The second play is NOT added to your draw or discard pile.

The scaling buff from Double Tap (and also from Burst and Amplify) is the number of cards that will be played twice, not the number of times the card will be played. This means playing multiple Double Taps will add to the number of cards that will be played twice that turn, not make the next card play 3 or more times.


  • The second play will not cost any Energy, but it will trigger any other consequences of playing the card. For example, a Double Tapped Hemokinesis will trigger the self-damage twice.
  • The second play of a card that costs X energy will use the same value of X as the first.
  • The second play acts as a separate card. This has interactions including, but not limited to:
    • Rage.
    • Shuriken, Kunai, and Pen Nib: Both plays count towards playing Attacks for their benefits. The second play can possibly receive triggered benefits.
    • Velvet Choker: Both plays count towards the amount of cards played for the turn.
    • Time Eater's Time Warp power: Both plays increase the counter as usual. If the second attack is the 13th action on his counter, it will NOT occur, unlike Velvet Choker.
  • The second play happens after the Attack is sent to the draw, discard or Exhaust piles. This has interactions including, but not limited to:
    • Headbutt: The second play can return the original Headbutt into the deck.
    • Malleable: Snake Plant receives its armor from Malleable after the first play.
  • The second play can trigger any Exhaust synergies, but only if the Attack Exhausts when played.
    • In other words, the Double Tap copy "not going to your discard pile" does NOT count as an Exhaust by itself.
