  • Everyone needs a summer job, but you just had to go and get a part-time position at

  • The SCP Foundation, didn't you?

  • Technically, you're massively underqualified, but the employee turnaround at that company

  • is so crazy that they can't exactly turn applicants away.

  • Sure, you may die horribly at the hands of a number of beingsor get terminated for

  • knowing too muchbut the pay is decent, and the dental coverage can't be beat.

  • However, you're now staring down the barrel of your first containment breach, and three

  • of the foundation's most terrifying creatures are on the loose: SCP-173, SCP-096, and the

  • dreaded SCP-682.

  • Talk about a trial by fire.

  • But don't worrywe're here for you, with all the tips, tricks, and techniques

  • you need to get these monsters back in their cells, or better yet, wiped from the face

  • of the earth.

  • So, steel yourself, agent, things are about to get horrifying.

  • Are you ready to Secure, Contain, and Protect?

  • First up, we have SCP-173 – a creature you should really be keeping an eye on.

  • Seriously.

  • If you take your eyes off of this spooky statue for even a second, you'll find yourself

  • laying on the ground with a snapped neck.

  • While it may look like a giant concrete fetus, this beast has left hardcore Class D personnel

  • mined straight from Death Row in crumpled heaps on the ground.

  • If you were going against this thing in a hand-to-hand battle, or with small arms like

  • a handgun or a standard rifle, you'd be better off turning the weapon on yourself

  • before the entity had a chance to get its hands on you.

  • Thankfully, you've got the nigh unlimited resources and state-of-the-art weapons technology

  • afforded to you by the Foundation, so you at least have a fighting chance.

  • But, no weapon in the fight against these mysterious beings is greater than knowledge

  • Withknow your enemyalways being the first rule of conflict.

  • So, let's get to know this nightmarish living statue, and see whether there are any cracks

  • in its concrete armour.

  • SCP – 173 is a Euclid class beingmeaning that the object has a certain degree of sentience,

  • is difficult to contain, and is often unpredictable due to our lack of understanding of said object.

  • SCP – 173 was moved onto the containment site in 1993, and has caused a number of brutal

  • deaths since then.

  • The exact origin of the creatureand how it's able to move and cause damageare

  • still a mystery, as it never moves while under direct observation.

  • Despite apparently being a sentient creature, Foundation tests indicate that it's constructed

  • from concrete and rebar, with the addition of some Krylon-brand spray paint.

  • It also somehow produces blood and feces, despite having no obvious digestive or vascular

  • system.

  • That's just one of the many perplexing things about the biology of this seemingly impossible

  • creature.

  • Typical containment procedures involve confining SCP-173 in a locked container, under perpetual

  • direct supervision from at least three Foundation personnel.

  • When the observation personnel are relieved from their duties to change shifts, at least

  • two are required to maintain direct line of sight observation of the creature until the

  • other personnel have safely vacated and locked the chamber.

  • The creature is exceptionally fast and strongeven the half-second it takes to blink

  • is enough to get your neck brutally broken by this snap-happy statue.

  • But these containment procedures apparently weren't enough, and now this wannabe-Weeping-Angel

  • is on the loose, snapping its way through every SCP Agent who can't maintain constant

  • eye contact.

  • How can you possibly fight a creature you can't look away from, even for a fraction

  • of a second?

  • As the creature apparently lacks a conventional vascular system and doesn't appear to have

  • standard, carbon-based biological organs, it can't be poisoned or gassed into submission.

  • You could go in guns blazing with a heavy artillery weapon likeThe Metal Storm.”

  • This terrifying machine-gun, created by an Australian company with American funding for

  • use on US Navy ships, is a 36-barrel nightmare literally capable of unleashing upwards of

  • one million rounds of parabolic hellfire within a minute.

  • (use this image: https://tinyurl.com/y942fekw) Surely this would reduce SCP – 173 into

  • rubble, right?

  • Well, perhaps, unless the initial blast causes you to blink.

  • If that happens, then the creature is equally likely to dodge your firestorm and snap your

  • neck.

  • To truly beat this SCP, you won't need a hyper-advanced machine gun, but you will need

  • a little help from one of mankind's oldest annoyances: The common housefly.

  • Unlike humans, whose eyes need moisture to function properlyand thus, need to blink

  • flies have perpetually-open compound eyes.

  • This not only affords flies a wider field of perception, but the ability to stare forever

  • without blinking.

  • If you release a swarm of these annoying little creatures into a room with SCP – 173, it'll

  • essentially be paralysed by the perpetual gaze of its hundreds of tiny guests.

  • And when this slab of malicious concrete is rendered inert, it can be disposed of the

  • same way you'd dispose of any troublesome concrete structure: TNT or C4 charges that

  • could blast this prolific strangler to kingdom come.

  • The resulting rubble could then simply be destroyed in an industrial furnace, leaving

  • no trace.

  • Quite literallyDone and Dusted.”

  • But that murderous piece of modern art is child's play compared to your next opponent:

  • SCP – 096, a creature whose chronic shyness could be the death of you, and potentially,

  • the death of everyone else, too.

  • This is another Euclid, but its combat potential is devastatingly higher than its concrete

  • predecessor.

  • According to all physical descriptions, it's a freakishly tall, humanoid creature with

  • white skin devoid of all pigmentation.

  • Its limbs are incredibly longdescribed by official files as beinggrossly out

  • of proportion with the rest of the subject's body.”

  • Despite having an emaciated, almost malnourished appearance, the creature has seemingly impossible

  • strength and ferocity during combat mode.

  • The creature displays no higher intelligence or reasoning, and appears largely docile while

  • unprovoked.

  • Containment procedures dictate that the being must be kept in an airtight steel cube with

  • no surveillance equipment whatsoever.

  • Why?

  • Because this creature becomes truly dangerous when you see its face.

  • That's rightif anyone, anywhere, sees SCP – 096's face, whether it's physically,

  • or in a picture or video, the being enters a state of severe agitation.

  • It will cover its face, and begin crying and wailing loudly.

  • When this period of despair ends, the creature begins a vicious rampage after whoever saw

  • it, relentlessly tracking down its prey and eviscerating them, regardless of what's

  • in the way.

  • Witnesses have reported the creature tearing through doors, walls, and tanks with no effort

  • whatsoever, and experiencing severe physical damageconsistent with the destruction

  • of most of its internal organsand barely even flinching.

  • The creature's skeletal structure appears almost indestructible, and the only thing

  • that can stop its rampage is the total annihilation of its target.

  • So, here's rule number one of taking the creature on: You cannot, under any circumstances,

  • see its face.

  • So how can such a thing be achieved?

  • How can you fight something you can't really look at?

  • Well, there is where some key details come into play.

  • While, in a combat scenario in which SCP – 096 is in attack mode, it has been shown to recover

  • from damage sustained from around a thousand .50 calibre bullets and sustained fire from

  • an anti-tank gun, it may not have this same level of invulnerability in its docile state.

  • Perhaps you could catch this self-conscious creature off-guard by approaching it while

  • using the T7 Thermal Imaging FLIR Binocular Goggle System.

  • The creature becomes an unstoppable killing machine when its face is seen, but through

  • utilising a thermal imaging system, you'd merely be viewing its abstract heat signature

  • without any real facial definition.

  • In other words, thermal imaging goggles like this would allow you to view SCP – 096 without

  • really seeing it.

  • And when the creature kills its target and returns to its docile state, you finally have

  • the opportunity to show it some real firepower.

  • While this SCP is incredibly effective at ground combat, it hasn't shown the same

  • prowess against aerial vehicleslike the devastating MQ-9 Reaper UAV, a remote-controlled

  • drone with ungodly firepower.

  • While this creature may be able to survive an anti-tank gun while in its offensive mode,

  • could it survive a volley of immensely powerful AGM-114 Hellfire II Anti-Armour Missiles fired

  • from above while in its docile state?

  • We can't be exactly sure, but it's unlikely thateven if it did survivewhatever's

  • left could put up much of a fight.

  • Injecting the skeletal remains with powerful fluoroantimonic acid, much like a spinal tap

  • procedure, might be the final nail in the coffin for this emotionally volatile monster.

  • Even the most powerful acids, however, don't mean much to our third and final combatant.

  • That's rightthe utterly horrifying SCP – 682, otherwise known by the foreboding

  • nicknameThe Hard-To-Kill Reptile.”

  • Even this feels like a gross underestimation of the power of the creature.

  • It's the first Keter-class SCP on the list heremeaninganomalies that are exceedingly

  • difficult to contain consistently or reliably, with containment procedures often being extensive

  • and complex.”

  • That's rightthe other two Euclids were just a warm up.

  • The Keter-class are the big daddies, and SCP – 682 is probably the most dangerous and

  • durable of them all.

  • It's an extremely intelligent and ferocious reptile-like creature with unparalleled regenerative

  • ability, reflexes, and strength.

  • It also seems to detest all forms of life in our dimension, and is bent on the destruction

  • of any living being it can get its claws on.

  • The beast is also so adaptable that it's almost impossible to use the same method of

  • attack on it twiceeven other SCPs have proved unable to terminate the creature during

  • cross-testing.

  • In order to contain SCP-682, it's perpetually kept in a sealed vat of powerful hydrochloric

  • acid, continually melting its body to prevent it from reaching its full potential.

  • If this thing gets out while you're on duty, you better either prepare your last will and

  • testament or get ready to negotiate a raise.

  • There is no proven way to take on this nigh-unkillable beast, so any methods of assault would ultimately

  • just be guesswork and wishful thinking.

  • Still, we believe there are a few potential methods for putting this misanthropic immortal

  • lizard out of commission, even if not all of them are permanent solutions to the problem.

  • The first option involves a lot of creativity and a lot of bullets.

  • Remember earlier in the video, when we mentioned The Metal Storm, the experimental Navy machine

  • gun capable of firing a million bullets per minute?

  • Such a weapon would be a lot more useful against the fleshy body of SCP – 682.

  • Coupled with high-intensity flamethrowerswhich are illegal under the Geneva convention,

  • but hey, legality has never stood in the way of the foundation before.

  • If over 87% of the body is damaged or destroyed, the body will be compromised enough for temporary

  • incapacitation.

  • If you act fast, this is when you'll have the greatest chance of survival.

  • If the incapacitated body was once again placed in high-intensity acid, this containment unit

  • could then itself be transferred to the payload of an autonomous rocketmuch like the

  • kind used to launch satellites into the far reaches of space.

  • If you want to truly be rid of this immortal lizard, firing its desiccated, still-living

  • carcass into the infinity of space is definitely one way you could go about it.

  • Not to mention the fact that, given the Foundation has almost unlimited resources, a SpaceX style

  • private launch would definitely not be out of the financial question.

  • Though, of course, if you want a less complicated solution to your SCP – 682 problem, there's

  • another form of rocketry that could come to your aid: Nuclear-armed Intercontinental Ballistic

  • Missiles.

  • There's no way of stating with 100% certainty that one or even several Nuclear ICBMs would

  • actually kill the beast, but there's pretty much nothing else these bad boys can't kill,

  • so you're in there with a chance.

  • If SCP – 682 was caught within the hypocenter of the blast, which is anywhere within one

  • mile of the direct explosion, there's a good chance that its organic matter would

  • be reduced to atoms by sheer force of the blast's thermal energy.

  • However, seeing as the SCP Foundation keeps any facility holding SCP-682 around 50 kilometres

  • away from developed human settlements, you wouldn't need to stop there.

  • If anything did remain, the area could be salted with napalm and the same powerful hydrochloric

  • acid used to contain it.

  • In prior tests, the creature had been damaged to the extent that only around 20% of its

  • biomass remained prior to regeneration.

  • It stands to reason that the most thorough way to ensure the beast's destruction is

  • to strike with such rapid and overwhelming force it doesn't even have time to adapt

  • or repair.

  • In other words, the only way to really kill SCP – 682 is absurd, heavy-artillery overkill.

  • But that's a small price to pay for not only your life, but the survival of the human

  • race.

  • And, of course, your end of year company bonus.

  • Check out the rest of ourYou VsPlaylist for more exciting battles between average

  • joes and pop culture's most formidable foes.
