-Item Description"

SCP-268 is one of the SCPs in SCP: Secret Laboratory, which can be used to make the wearer invisible.

Official SCP Wiki Information

"SCP-268 is a tweed-wool newsboy cap. The design and make seem to be of Irish origin. Due to the style and fabric, it is estimated to have been created in the late 1800's to early 1900's, though fiber analysis is inconclusive. The only markings on the cap are a small label with writing in Middle Irish, reading "The Garden is the Serpent's Place." However, there are various indications that this label was sewn onto the cap in recent times. Due to the nature of the artifact, testing has been extremely difficult. SCP-268 seems to be a normal hat until it is worn. Anyone wearing the hat, however, becomes suddenly and instantly unnoticeable. Subjects become unmemorable, thoroughly ignorable, or "taken for granted" by all observers."


SCP-268 is a wearable hat that can make a wearer invisible for 20 seconds. The invisibility effect does not work on SCP-939, SCP-096 (when you're a target), or SCP-079. The invisibility effect can be instantaneously canceled if the wearer does any interactions such as shooting, opening a door or using an item. SCP-268 has a 2 minute cool down time after being used.

SCP-268 spawns in one of the four to eight locked pedestals (Bulletproof Locker №7), which are located in 10 possible places across the Light Containment Zone and Heavy Containment Zone. These pedestals can only be opened and closed by keycards with both containment access level 2 and checkpoint privileges, such as the Research Supervisor, MTF Cadet or higher access keycards.
