SCP-244 is an SCP Item found in SCP Secret Laboratory. SCP-244 acts as a portable environmental hazard that can be utilized by the player.
A pair of earthenware jars of Tunisian origin; skillfully handcrafted by masters of pottery. The motifs that cover them are imbued with generations of rich culture. The warmth of that far land almost reaches out to you. Yet, it feels cold here.
"We found a second one last week, no clue what it was doing at an Insurgency base. Site command has ordered that it be contained separately from the other instance. Lord knows why. I also don’t know why we still use D-Class to carry them, it’s only a matter of time before someone drops the thing.”
-Dr. Peter Stoner, Junior Researcher, Site-02
In-game, there are two instances of SCP-244 that can spawn: SCP-244-A and SCP-244-B.
The only difference between the two are their models and spawn mechanics.
SCP-244-A can be found in a Bulletproof Locker №7 located around the map. SCP-244-B has a 30% to spawn in a random room in Heavy Containment Zone. Unlike SCP-244-A, it will spawn fully activated, acting as a small environmental hazard. SCP-244-B will never spawn in SCP-939's Containment Area.
Human classes can pick up, hold, and activate SCP-244 by pushing Left Click. When activated, SCP-244 will produce an AoE frost effect that can be seen as a blue smoke effect. The fog will cover a large portion of the room, but cannot pass through walls or closed doors.
SCP-244 will also activate upon being knocked over. This can happen by it either being thrown, dropped on an uneven surface, or if hit by an item while laying on the ground.
While in the fog, player vision is reduced and their weapon accuracy decreases. Their health will also begin to decay if they stay in the fog for more than five seconds. The amount of HP decay that takes place is dependent on how close a player is to SCP-244. The maximum amount of HP decay rate is 12 HP every 8 seconds.
The time to pick up an item is increased by two extra seconds while under the effects of the fog. Humans will move 5% slower and drain Stamina slightly faster as well.
The effects of SCP-244 are stackable if both instances of SCP-244 are used nearby each other.
SCPs under the effect of SCP-244 will no longer regenerate Hume Shield (shown by a red bar appearing on the Hume Shield bar). This will last for five seconds before the Hume Shield bar starts to decay at a rate of 15 HS/s (this drain is increased to 20 HS/s if under the effects of two SCP-244 instances). Their vision (apart from SCP-939) will also be greatly reduced while in the fog.
Once Hume Shield is depleted, SCP-244 will start draining the SCP's normal health.
Each SCP, besides SCP-079, will receive additional effects while in the fog of SCP-244 besides Hume Shield Drain. The following effects are not stackable.
- SCP-049 - Increased attack cooldown by two seconds. Revive time increased by three seconds.
- SCP-049-2 - Increased attack cooldown.
- SCP-096 - Can't be triggered by looking at their face. Attacks are slower.
- SCP-106 - Increased attack cooldown.
- SCP-173 - Tantrum Puddles near the fog will disappear faster.
- SCP-939 - Increased attack cooldown.
