"An archaic plague doctor with the sole intent of “curing” those ridden with the “pestilence”. Contact means death, but only momentarily; you may find that one of the side effects of the good doctor’s surgery is being denied such an easy end.

Official SCP Wiki Information

"SCP-049 is a humanoid entity, roughly 1.9 meters in height, which bears the appearance of a medieval plague doctor...SCP-049 will become hostile with individuals it sees as being affected by the Pestilence...SCP-049 will generally attempt to kill any such individual...SCP-049 is capable of causing all biological functions of an organism to cease through direct skin contact...though will usually seek to then perform a crude surgery on the corpse...While these surgeries are not always "successful", they often result in the creation of instances of SCP-049-2."


SCP-049 spawns in the HCZ and has the ability to instantly kill human players and resurrect them as SCP-049-2 instances.

SCP-049 attacks with the left mouse button with a 1.5s cooldown on a successful hit. SCP-049 is able to turn dead players (the cause of death does not matter) into SCP-049-2 instances by holding E on them. Corpses older than 10 seconds cannot be resurrected. The conversion takes 5s.

SCP-049-2 instances have little functionality apart from being able to attack nearby players. SCP-049-2 instances have 300HP and move faster than SCP-049.
