From SCP: Secret Laboratory Public Beta 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 claw and SCP-049-2's swipe (Shots to the head and limbs will deal normal damage). Bodyshot Reduction will ignore a weapon's penetration, meaning the damage is directly reduced.
The amount of damaged reduced is based on the intensity of the effect. An intensity of one is a 5% reduction, two is a 10% reduction, three is a 12.5% reduction and an intensity of four is a 15% reduction. Any further amounts is capped off at 15%.



The effect is applied when consuming Rainbow Candy with an intensity of one and last until the player dies.

Damage Reduction[edit]

Damage Reduction is a positive effect that reduces any damage the player takes. The amount of damaged reduced is based on the intensity of the effect, with each intensity adding a 0.5% reduction. An intensity of one is a 0.5% reduction, two is a 1% reduction, three is a 1.5% reduction and an intensity of four is a 2% reduction and so on.


The effect is applied for 15 seconds when consuming Purple Candy with an intensity of 40, meaning a 20% Reduction.
