From SCP: Secret Laboratory English Official Wiki

Status Effects are a Mechanic in SCP: Secret Laboratory that are used to change the stats of a player. Status Effects can be applied from various in-game Items, or SCP attacks. Certain SCPs can spawn with a Status Effect as well.
Currently, most Status Effects can only be applied via Remote Admin.

List of Status Effects[edit]

There are three classifications for Status Effects:

  • Positive - These effects will benefit the player.
  • Negative - These effects will provide a drawback.
  • Mixed - These effects will benefit the player, but also have drawbacks.


Positive Effects[edit]

Bodyshot Reduction[edit]

Bodyshot Reduction is a positive effect that reduces damage taken from shots to the body, SCP-939's bite or SCP-049-2's attack (Shots to the head and limbs will deal normal damage). Similar to SCP-106's resistance, Bodyshot Reduction will ignore a weapon's penetration, meaning the damage is directly reduced.
The effect is applied when consuming Rainbow Candy, and will reduce bodyshot damage by 5% until the player dies.

Damage Reduction[edit]

Damage Reduction is a positive effect that reduces any damage the player takes.
The effect is applied for 20 seconds when consuming Purple Candy, and will reduce all damage by 20%.


Invigorated[edit]

Invigorated

Invigorated is a positive effect that prevents the Stamina bar from draining, allowing constant sprinting for its duration. It will also increase the contrast of the player's screen for the duration of the effect.
The effect lasts eight seconds after using Adrenaline and will last eight seconds after consuming Yellow Candy.

Invisibility[edit]

Invisibility

Invisibility is a positive effect that makes the player unable to be seen by most classes. While the player will remain invisable to most classes, SCP-079, SCP-096, and SCP-939 are still able to see invisible players.
The effect is applied by using SCP-268, and will last 15 seconds, but will end early if the player equips a Firearm or interacts with any object.


Movement Boost[edit]

Movement Boost is a positive effect that increases the player's speed by a defined amount, ranging from 1% to a maximum of 255%. It should not be confused with SCP-207's effect, which increase the player's speed at the cost of health. The two effects will stack if applied together.
The effect is applied for eight seconds after consuming Yellow Candy, giving the player a 20% speed boost.


Rainbow Taste[edit]

Rainbow Taste is a positive effect which will reduce the severity of several negative effects, including Amnesia, Bleeding, Burned, Concussed, Hemorrhage, Poisoned and SCP-207. The effects of Amnesia and Concussed will be blocked only if the candy is consumed before those effects are applied; all other effects will be dampened regardless of timing.
The effect is applied for ten seconds after consuming Rainbow Candy.


Vitality[edit]

Vitality is a positive effect that makes the user completely immune to most negative effects, with the exception of Severed Hands, Decontamination, and Corroding. It will also cause the SCP-207 effect to stop dealing damage, but will continue to allow the player to have infinite stamina for the duration of the effect.
The effect is applied for 30 seconds after consuming Green Candy.


Negative Effects[edit]

Amnesia[edit]

Amnesia

Amnesia is a negative effect that reduces the player's visibility.
The effect is applied to the player for three seconds when bitten by SCP-939. The time is reduced to 1.7 seconds if the player had the Rainbow Taste Effect beforehand.


Asphyxiated[edit]

Asphyxiated is a negative effect that quickly drains the player's Stamina Bar. If there is no Stamina left to drain, then the player's health will be drained instead.
This effect can only be applied with Remote Admin.


Bleeding[edit]

Bleeding

Bleeding is a negative effect that deals damage every five seconds. The damage begins at 20 HP/5s and eventually decreases to 2 HP/5s. The Rainbow Taste Effect has a 40% chance to block the damage.

Blinded

Blinded is a negative effect that applies extreme screen blur.

Burned is a negative effect that increases the damage the player takes by 25%. The Rainbow Taste Effect will reduce this increase to 7.5%.
The effect is applied for ten seconds if the player is hit by the explosion of SCP-018 or a High-Explosive Grenade.


Concussed[edit]

Concussed is a negative effect that applies extreme blur while turning. The intensity of this blur is dependent on the speed at which the player turns.
The effect is applied for ten seconds if the player is hit by the explosion of SCP-018 or a High-Explosive Grenade. It can be removed by using Adrenaline, Painkillers, or SCP-500. The Rainbow Taste effect has a 40% chance to block the effect from being applied.


Corroding[edit]

Corroding is a negative Status Effect that teleports the player to SCP-106's Pocket Dimension and drains their HP. The drain rate of HP increases the longer they remain in the Pocket Dimension.
Players attacked by SCP-106 are given this effect. The effect goes away once the player successfully escapes the Pocket Dimension.


Deafened[edit]

Deafened is a negative effect that heavily muffles all sounds.
It is applied for three to five seconds when the player is hit by a Flashbang Grenade and can be removed early with SCP-500.

This effect can only be applied by Remote Admin.


Hypothermia[edit]

Hypothermia

Hypothermia is a negative effect that slowly drains the player's HP, reduces bullet accuracy, and increases item pickup and use time. The damage dealt is based on multiple factors, such as distance to SCP-244, the amount of SCP-244's in the area and the time spent in the fog. SCPs gradually lose Hume Shield and then their health.
The effect is applied while inside the fog generated by SCP-244. It can be removed by leaving SCP-244's fog.


Panic[edit]

Panic was a negative effect that slightly increased the drain rate of Stamina. It is no longer in the game, but is mistakenly listed in Remote Admin.
This effect could only be applied by Remote Admin.

Poisoned[edit]

Poisoned

Poisoned is a negative effect that deals damage every five seconds. The damage starts at 2 HP/5s but over times increases to 20 HP/5s.
It can be applied by having both SCP-207 and SCP-1853 active at the same time. The effect can be removed by SCP-500 and the Rainbow Taste effect has a 40% chance to block the damage.


Severed Hands[edit]

Severed Hands

Severed Hands is a negative effect that removes the player's hands then drains their HP. It also removes the ability for the player to open their inventory or interact with objects, such as doors.
This effect is applied when the player removes more than two pieces of candy from SCP-330.


Sinkhole[edit]

Sinkhole

Sinkhole is a negative effect that slows down player movement by 20%. The amount the player is slowed down by can be controlled by config. It should not be confused with the Stained effect, which has a very similar function.
The effect is applied when the player enters the Sinkhole Trap. It goes away when the player exits the trap. SCPs are immune to this effect.


Stained[edit]

Stained is a negative effect that slows down player movement by 20%. It should not be confused with the Sinkhole effect, which has a similar function.
The effect is caused by SCP-173's Tantrum Puddles and is removed three seconds after leaving them. SCPs are immune to this effect.


Mixed Effects[edit]

SCP-207[edit]

SCP-207

SCP-207 is a mixed effect that blocks stamina drain and increases the player's movement speed but will slowly drain HP. The effect can be stacked up to four times, increasing both the positive and negative effects. The Rainbow Taste effect has a 40% chance to block damage every tick, and the Vitality effect will fully disable the drain. If combined with SCP-1853, the player will also receive the Poisoned effect.
The effect is applied by consuming SCP-207 and is removed by using SCP-500.


SCP-939 Visuals[edit]

SCP-939 Visuals

SCP-939 Visuals are a mixed effect that alters the player's vision. All objects turn black with white outlines and the player can only see other players under certain conditions (Making noise). Players who meet these conditions can be seen through walls, while players who are not making noises will be completely invisible unless they are bumped into or are on the Surface.
This effect is used exclusively for SCP-939, but can be applied to others with Remote Admin.


SCP-1853[edit]

SCP-1853

SCP-1853 is a mixed effect that increases motor function, including weapon draw time, reload speed, item pickup speed, and medical item use time. As a downside, the player's Stamina usage is increased. Multiple instances of SCP-1853 can be stacked, but for each additional instance, effectiveness is halved. If combined with SCP-207, the player will also receive the Poisoned effect.
The effect is applied by using SCP-1853 and is removed by using SCP-500.
