In this mode, all of the offensive sub-weapons deal much more damage. The Axe, Holy Water and Crucifix sub-weapons also have their heart costs cut in half. In addition, if Nathan has the knife sub-weapon in his possession and he collects another knife, he can use the homing knife sub-weapon, which automatically seeks out an enemy, at the cost of reduced damage (though still more damage than using a standard attack).
