Item Class
Version Added

SCP-1499, or "The Gas Mask" is a safe class SCP item in SCP: Unity. It was added in version 0.3.1.



SCP-1499 is a Soviet GP-5 gas mask. A seal test performed on the object suggests that the object retains its original functionality. The anomalous effects of SCP-1499 activate when a human places SCP-1499 on their head. Approximately one second after SCP-1499 is fully secured on the subject's head, the subject vanishes from view, and is no longer detectable. The subject reports no feeling of motion at this time. Testing has revealed that two-way radios remain capable of both receiving and transmitting despite the subject being undetectable. Upon wearing SCP-1499, test subjects report completely different surroundings than they were in prior to wearing SCP-1499. Subjects have reported that it appears barren and inhospitable, with tall black towers filling the area. Subjects have also sighted entities in this landscape. These entities, designated SCP-1499-1, have been described as tall, nude humanoids with dark skin that has a thick coat of an unknown viscous substance. Instances of SCP-1499-1 also have large amounts of eyes and mouths covering their body. Upon removing SCP-1499 from their head, subjects reappear in the same location they were in when they put it on.


SCP-1499 is located in its containment chamber in the Light Containment Zone. SCP-1499 will remain in this location until the player picks it up, which is currently not possible.

Currently, SCP-1499 is locked in its containment chamber, and the means to unlock it currently does not exist. An update that will allow the player to unlock SCP-1499, which will at this point have had its mechanics re-balanced, has been announced but the development and number of said update has not.

Version Added

SCP-1499-1 is a harmful entity in SCP: Unity. It was removed in Version 0.6.0.


SCP-1499-1 is not currently in-game.


  • As stated above, SCP-1499 is currently not obtainable, but a future update will allow the player to obtain it again (though the process of doing so will be more difficult) as well as re-balance it and improve the dimension itself.
  • In SCP: Containment Breach, SCP-1499 was capable of making aggressive SCPs disappear after awhile of wearing it. This ability will either be harder to pull off or not be possible at all upon SCP-1499's return. The dimension itself will provide the item's use rather than acting as some way to escape danger.
  • SCP-1499 was one of the three SCPs in the game prior to update 0.5.5, alongside SCP-173 and very briefly SCP-106.
