The main way that you will most likely get curses at first is at the start of the run where you can get one right off the bat for use during your run. However, you may opt to also get them from the Weapon Shop. There are also times when you can get a curse as a reward for clearing particular rooms. Notably, you can gather faith and then upgrade parts of the skill tree by choosing to give ‘Sermons’ to your devoted followers! Three curses will be unlocked with each upgrade so you will never have to worry about running short of them.

In order to utilize curses, you can hold down and release triangle on PlayStation or respectively hold down and release Y on Xbox. As for PC, you can hold and release the Z key or the X button for Nintendo Switch if you have it on there instead.
